Thank you for checking out my blog that’s really about my experiences with being frugal, striving for zero waste, and living as healthy a lifestyle as I can manage. Part of that is a business I started because I believe in eco-friendly initiatives and I am a compulsive creator. You can get to my website here. My portfolio is there including past commissions and current pieces for sale.
Hermit Crab Upcycling is where I take secondhand, unloved items and turn them into something stylish, sometimes offbeat, and interesting. I use recycled and upcycled materials wherever possible in my projects and my own designs unless commissioned to do something specific. I sell my own designed creations and am available for custom pieces if you like my work.
I create using a variety of materials and techniques including sewing, hand embroidery, woodburning, buttons, glass, recycled onion bags, and whatever else strikes my imagination. I’ve included a few photos, but you can see all this and more on my website.
