January 24 marks my 10th year of blogging and crafting here at My Recycled Bags. When I started this blog back in 2007, I had just began crocheting with recycled plastic bags. Crafting with plastic bags which later was called plarn has because a very well known recycled craft.
My first post on January 24, 2007 started out by telling the history behind my crafting with recycled plastic bags. It featured a photo of my brown recycled handbag purse. For years now I have used this image as my avatar and it is what many people recognize as the signature image of my identity on the Internet.
I have crocheted and crafted hundreds of recycled projects over the years. I have created and shared over 100 free crochet and craft patterns on this blog. You can find all my free patterns here on My Patterns Page.
I hope I have inspired and guided people over these past 10 years to make useful items and fun projects. I know I have loved sharing my recycled bags and other projects with you all over the years. Many of you have been here through the ups and downs of my cancer journey as well as the joy of crafting. Through it all, it has been a wonderful joy in my life and most of all I want to thank everyone for their interest and support of this blog over the years.
