Swap - Three R's Style

Recycle, Reuse, and Refresh. Okay, okay, so it's not Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - but participating in this swap only implies that you're reducing waste! Diva Cindy of Divaschmiva initiated this very cool swap. I know, I know, we just did a swap. We've had so many new members since we set the last swap in motion, and many older members who love making and giving, that Cindy threw this idea out there and the team has run with it.

The officialness as written by the hostess herself:

Definition of each as follows:

*Recycled - things you would throw away (if it contained food at one
time you must be able to wash it before using it again) such as a cereal box, paper towel roll, plastic butter container, etc.

*Reused - things like an old lamp shade that you recovered or a pair
of jeans that you turn into a purse.

*Refreshed - things like an old birdhouse that you repaint and make
into a planter, or an old frame that you paint & add a mirror, or recover pillows with new fabric.
