Snowy White "Chick-a-lites" and "Bunn-a-lites"?

After my snowy post, I was anxious to bring a little color to my blog. I’m not much of a snow enthusiast, but a color enthusiast? Yes, definitely.

I wanted to share a peak into my Recyc-a-lite projects. What are Recyc-a-lites? They are sculptures I make with burned out light bulbs. After friends and family have saved their bulbs for me, I had a couple dozen to make some characters with. Oh, and by the way, I’m in need of some more burned out light bulbs. If you have any bulbs needing a new outlook on life send them my way. I give “burned out” light bulbs a new life and prevent them from ending up to a “life in the dumps”. Take a look.

I’m working on some Recyc-a-lite chicks and bunnies for an upcoming craft show in April. By the way, this craft show is my very first craft show. The “Chick-a-lites” and “Bunn-a-lites” are the newest members of the Recyc-a-lite family. Some of the first Recyc-a-lites were penguin sculptures. My USA Bride and Quebec Groom penguins made it on display at the CHA convention earlier this year. The very first USA Bride and Quebec Groom penguins I made are now living in Quebec with my friend, Megan and her husband, Jean. They were a wedding gift for them last year. I also have Recyc-a-lite penguins for sale at my Etsy store, Lilly Bug Boutique.

Talk to you later. C-ya! 🙂
