It’s all about the Journey
that’s the phrase I had on my first quilt labels, along with clipart’s representing 4 points along my journey.
Utilize what you have been given
is a fortune cookie I opened just before I began quilting, and has represented how I make my items.

I believe there are stories in everything around us.
Do you have something you’re no longer using for it’s intended purpose but haven’t let go of because it carries your story?
Have you seen something you can re-imagine it as but don’t have the time / ability / desire to do it yourself?
Let me help you re-imagine your memories…
Picture frames no longer fit your décor? Let’s make them into something that will. A board replacing the glass will make a tray, a wire rack with clothespins makes a bulletin board, wrapped with clothing will make a re-imagined memory.
Canvas chairs with broken legs make great tote bags.
Clothes have so many stories to tell, and can be re-imagined into soo many things. My specialty is using what’s already on the clothes in what I make. Pockets, button strips, cuffs, etc.
This is a repurpose site. Together we can re-imagine memories and I can do the work for you. My true goal is to repurpose items from something unusable in it’s original form yet with too much meaning to let go of, into a re-imagined memory. One example being the memory bears that are made by hospice. I want to give you an option other than a teddy bear for turning a shirt into a re-imagined memory.
Now, I’m still learning and am not at magazine or museum quality yet. I am a believer in the story, and even the glitches, (some call them mistakes) have a story to tell. Everything I do has a story to tell, and it’s usually not the story I started with – told it to tell – planned on.
Enjoy your day.
