Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...we hear that all the time, but sometimes you have to think out of the box to repurpose items!
In the crafting world, there's a lot of repurposing going on, but we're taking it in a different direction...not just in using repurpose materials, but in our DISPLAYS!
In 2013, we stumbled upon a couple of random fiberglass mannequin heads, desperately in need of a makeover. So we recycled them by decopaging them with pages of some book pages (leftover from a personal "Altered Art" project), and the response was AMAZING! Everyone seemed to love the way the showcased our crazy hats! So over the last few months, we've rescued a few more bashed and beat up "heads", learned to do some Fiberglass resin repair, and been on the hunt for the perfect pages to glaze them over. Yeah, we know some of them our cutesy, and some of them are creepy, but ALL of them are perfect for displaying SOMETHING!
So let us share the results, and tell us what you think!
Did you know that not only do the "Mostly Monsters" girls (Sabrina & Taylor) sew, paint, design, and create all the handmade goods in our shop, but we are MUSICIANS & supporters of the arts of all types?
Every summer, we donate our time and... efforts with "Patio Playhouse" in Escondido, California. This group provides arts education and opportunities to YOUTH interested in performing arts. To help "Patio Playhouse" provide more chances for young people to be involved in theater, music, and dance.
"Mostly Monsters" has begun a tradition of creating special items EXCLUSIVE to the show, and each night of the projection, 1 or more items is raffled off in an "Opportunity Drawing" to help raise funds for the program. (Some of you might remember our goodies from "Young Frankenstein" in 2013?) This year, we are sooo pleased to be a part of an amazing production of "Fiddler on the Roof". During the show, you'll spot us both in the orchestra pit, wailing away on the Klezmer Clarinet
(Hooray for the bottle dance!!!)
On this blog, we're sharing a sneak preview of the goodies that will be available to WIN at this year's show, and each night of the show, we'll give you a glimpse of what you could win, so keep following!!!
And if you're in the Southern California area, why not stop by PATIO PLAYHOUSE to purchase a ticket and see the show!
