upcycledtreasures

My name is Katie and I blog over at Upcycled Treasures, which was started so that I could share my DIY projects in hopes of inspiring others to get creative. I love the transformation of turning something old or thrown away into something beautiful and unique, and It amazes me what a little bit of imagination and elbow grease can create. I was in a creative "funk" for many years and let life get in the way of spending time doing what I love. I want everyone that visits my blog to know that if I can DIY it, so can you! I hope you will feel inspired to be inventive and create a space that is personal to you through your own projects.
