10 Years of Blogging

January 23, 2017 6 comments

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

8 years and Still Going

January 18, 2015 16 comments

8 years ago on January 24, I posted my first blog post here at My Recycled Bags. Since 2007 I have shared and added over a hundred different recycled and crocheted patterns. I have battled and so far beaten cancer and posted over 400 blog posts. Through it all, I have meet and become friends with many wonderful people on-line.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all my friends, family and on-line acquaintances. The last 8 years has been fun and very rewarding. As you may know, I love to crochet and make things from recycled materials. Over the years I’ve created things from plastic bags, denim, t-shirts, VCR tapes, cassette tapes, old clothing, and other recycled materials. I share all my patterns free to everyone from plarn to denim on my patterns page where I have all the projects shown with thumbnails.

I hope you have found this blog site useful and have enjoyed reading it as much as I have sharing projects, ideas and thoughts over the years.

4 Years Old Today

January 24, 2011 7 comments

Today my blog here at MyRecycledBags is 4 years old. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I decided to launch my idea about sharing ideas and posting free patterns for plastic bag crafts. The word plarn hadn’t even been discovered yet. But now crafting with plastic bags or plarn is a commonly known term.

Many sites and crafters now promote the use of plastic bags and other recycled materials on the Internet. While I wasn’t the first, I’d like to think that I’ve been one of the most active and long running sites that shares all their patterns free. I am always here to help if you have a question or need help with a crochet pattern. I truly love to share my ideas and it has been my pleasure to run this blog for the past four years.

So on this 4th anniversary of my first blog post, I want to say thank you to all my readers and on-line friends. Without all your love and interest in recycled crafting and my blog, I would not have enjoyed the success I’ve been able to have with this site. I so appreciate you all and hope I can keep blogging and sharing for many more years to come.

Blessings and (((Hugs))) to all!
