Right now I am totally into up-cycling and re-imagining "junk" to create new playthings for kids. Junktopia is a fantastical character-based maker society where an entire world has been re-invented out of junk, intended to inspire the maker to use their imaginations to create their own play environment and empower them to make things out of ordinary items. Check it out: www.projectjunktopia.com. I use a combination of up-cycled junk, craft supplies, clock parts (has a steampunk vibe), findings, metal, laser engraved parts and characters.
Arts and crafts for kids, Steampunk, fashion, jewelry, soldering, metalworking, woodworking, simple electronics and motorized things....
Yes!!! I would love to share Project Junktopia!
Yes, would love that too!
