      Can someone tell me what upcycling is suppose to mean? Graphic 45's September challenge is to Upcycle a household item with Graphic 45 paper and staples in a autumn or Halloween theme and I haven't the faintest idea what that means!

        Good question. I just took it to mean to take some old and tired and make it new and fabulous but I don't know if that is right.

          I think it is, Sherri. It's like recycling, with a purpose.

            Oh, okay – now to figure out what I should use, lol.

            Yes, take something you would normally toss or even recycle and make into something useable or artistic!

            Wiki: Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

                    It's not funny, Peggy! I just spent one week in first grade with those little critters for the first week of school!!!! I was bonkers when Friday rolled around….and a goofy parent had the nerve to bring one hundred cupcakes one hour before the bell rang on Friday with the entire family attending a party for her daughter!!! No waing that the whole family was coming for a birthday party!!! Needless to say, the afteoon was a bust, and I had no control of 20 kids the rest of the afteoon!
                    I need a long vaca!!!
