Lift Me Up! Workshop GIVEAWAY

The Lift Me Up workshop is about giving second chances to things that have already served their original purposes. It is about developing the eye that sees potential in ordinary everyday castaways. It is about being a little more responsible with your surroundings, your expenses, but above all, it's about choosing a creative lifestyle.

Class includes:
  • Supply list with live links to product resources
  • Welcome notes from Mou in the classroom
  • Reminder emails when the classroom is updated with new materials
  • Voice messages available as streaming audio, downloadable MP3 files and transcripts
  • Colorful instructional handouts with step-by-step instructions for each lesson/project
  • Private posting gallery to share your work and view the work of your classmates
  • Message board to share your thoughts with your classmates
  • Email access to Mou
  • Live chats with Mou

Cost of the class is $25.
Read more details, listen to an audio introduction and register here.

Today I'm giving away ONE spot to the Lift Me Up! workshop. All you need to do is leave a comment to this post telling me what you like to upcycle the most. Post your comment by 4/17/2012 and I'll announce the winner on the 18th. Good luck!

I love upcycling all sorts of things, but I especially like to upcycle/recycle paper that would have gone to the trash- Like junk mail, or old newspapers, etc.

Isha said...

This class would be perfect so I can use all the us recycling material too. It would be a great help with limited supplies at hand. Thanks for a chance to win.

I love upcycling packaging for food and other items! Its so fun to alter them with paint and paper. Your class looks like fun. I would love the chance to win a spot.

I love using toilet paper or paper towel rolls. I love the organic, cardboard look of them, and I would LOVE to be in one of your classes, Mou!!!

Wow- that sounds like such a fun class! I upcycle a lot of stuff. My #1 is toilet paper rolls. They are so useful for kids' crafts, napkin rings, gift card holders, and so much more.

I upcycle lots of stuff. I've taken old clothes and made doll clothes, and braided headbands for my girls from them. I've also used TP rolls, cardboard and cereal boxes to make mini albums.

i love to upcycle magazines into mailart as well as food packaging. would love to learn additional ways to upcycle other items.

I love to upcycle lots of stuff -- I posted over at punk projects about how I like to upcycle old canvases so another thing I like to upcycle are busted up blue jeans! I use the denim to make necklaces with my middle school students -- they get a kick out of make jewelry out of my boyfriend's old jeans! ;c)

Tiffani said...

Lots of things! Outgrown children's clothes can become doll clothes. Brown paper used for packing material can become wrapping paper or collage fodder. I have to fight the hoarding tendency! :)

Valerie said...

To be honest I haven't much experience with upcycling things, but I would love to learn it ;-)
Less than a year ago I started art journaling and last month I made a little journal out of upcycled paper and cardboard. I enjoyed that really much!
