Chalk drawings on the pavement made by resident and visiting toddlers are all that remains of the 2nd UpcycleSLO craft sale. I am so inspired by my companeras, my fellow crafters!  Jen, Erin, Careen and her sister, Melinda, Monica.....Thank you to the particpants and for everyone who came and bought something, donated some, or just came to say hi. 
We made over $100 to donate to the Women's Shelter!
Go to http://www.womensshelterslo.org/ to find out how you can donate more.

KSBY came out to see what UpcycleSLO is all about. Check out the local news tonight at 6:00 (chanel 6, or http://www.ksby.com/) to see an interview with your host, Sara McGrath!
