A few weeks ago I asked myself and my readers if Upcycled by Ash was still an accurate name for my blog and my business. What is in a Name. I got some great advice and responses both here on the blog and sent to me by email. One person helped me to see that the definition applied to more than just the individual items that I make.
Upcycling is a fun thing to do with pre-loved materials. Making something that is no longer functional or desired into some thing new and loved. It is also a metaphor for my life and the journey I have been on to regain my heath from chronic illness.
I am still a work in progress but I am coming out of this a better more beautiful person just like the upcycled items I make.
