I am a DIY obsessed enthusiast who hates waste and I choose a different type of medium to express myself...
I am a web and graphic designer by profession. Right since my childhood days I was very sentimental about things that I owned and hated throwing them away. It had nothing to do with the cost of the item or the value it bore, it was purely my attachment to it. And so when it would stop working or broke, I would find ways to use the item or a part of it to make something new out of it. So basically, I am a self confessed hoarder. As a matter of fact, I don’t see any broken item or packing material as it is, but i picture what i could turn that into. “I don’t think outside the box, I think of what I can do with the box.”😊
This penchant of mine for reusing, recycling and recreating led me to the wonderful world of upcycling. Knowingly or unknowingly I have been upcycling for years, but it only occurred to me recently to start showcasing my work. Better late than never, here I am with Renzy Creatives.
I am trying to promote upcycling and reusing old stuff to make something new, useful and different, to clear the environmental mess we have created by randomly disposing things, that end up in the landfill. I definitely think people should try and upcycle things rather than throw away to buy new ones. There is a mindset that it would be a difficult job to upcycle, but people should realise that they were going to bin the item anyway, so why not give it a go. They do not need to be a professional to do so. They can learn from various videos on youtube, posts on Facebook, etc. Small steps at a time but the end result will make them feel proud of themselves for saving not just a lot of money but doing good for the environment as well.
With that message in mind, I upcycled to make a few colourful and trendy items. Do have a look at the work I have been doing and get in touch.
