Crafty Recycling

The son of a friend of mine is in the school archery club. They have a lot of broken arrows. Rather than just throw out the broken arrows, he saw potential and in doing so, came up with something useful and ecologically excellent, as well as a way to earn some money. He turns the broken arrows into pens! Here are mine. More are available on Etsy.

I've been doing my own bit of crafty recycling. When my mom downsized recently, I was given several small balls of leftover wool that I'm making into squares for an afghan. I don't know what it's going to look like when it's finished, but it's better than throwing it all away!

And I used a piece of leftover fleece to cover a chair to keep cat hairs off it - only to discover it doubles as kitty kamouflage!
