Earth Day 2018


Happy Earth Day!
It’s been over 10 years of blogging here at My Recycled Bags. I promote these important big R’s- reduce, reuse, recycle, replenish and restore. I freely share and encourage crafting with recycled materials as well as ways to reuse plastic and other trash in our landfills.

Someone asked me recently if I was still into crocheting with plastic bags otherwise know as plarn. The answer is yes. Right now I am working on a crocheted Hobo purse bag pattern that I wrote from 10 years ago. I’m still recycling and still crocheting and still sharing all my patterns free here.

So on this Earth Day 2018, let’s continue to love and protect this Earth in every way we can.
Not just today but every day. […]

10 Years Later

Pink Breast Cancer Ribbon

Well it’s been 10 years. 10 years is a long time and I’m so happy to say that 10 years later, I am still cancer free. It has been a whole decade since cancer came a-knocking on my door. I was diagnosed triple-positive for breast cancer back then. I fought it hard with surgery, chemo, and radiation.

You can read all my cancer blog posts here if you are interested in my journey. Maybe you are just starting your journey down the cancer road and if so, I hope you find my blog posts helpful. I know I read lots of different blogs from people facing breast cancer and found them not only useful but inspiring. Reading about others’ battles helps us know that we aren’t alone. Reading how others dealt with certain symptoms, how they responded to treatments, how they overcame or even didn’t overcome certain things is important to read about and understand.

Anyway I wanted to share a 10 year cancer free post and celebrate the milestone. I am thankful to God, family and friends through it all. I have been so blessed and just want to encourage anyone out there who might need a positive thought or read a bit of support from someone who has been there. Hang in there you are not alone. Reach out to others, rely on your faith, your family and don’t be afraid to ask for help. […]
