7 days of Christmas - day 5

Now how about those quirky relatives? You know the ones. The ones that don't "conform". The ones that think Christmas is a just a way for retailers to exploit the common man and con them into becoming mad consumers. I've thought about them too. I found a great little site that has all sorts of crafts made from totally recycled materials.

Check out this bag made from plastic bags. How cool is it!

Or this computer keyboard bracelet.

Check this link for the recycled craft section. It's worth a look.

There are these slippers made from an old blanket. I wonder how they would look in chenille?!

I've found some super cool stitchery patterns at Sublime stitching as well. The Zombies are my particular favourite for the non-conformist. Imagine those on a little zippered pouch or nintendo ds cover!

So don't worry about those non-conformist's, have fun with them. I have also found if you type geekery into etsy, you come up with some pretty weird stuff as well! Give it a go.

So, does everyone have bets on to yet see if I can make it to day 7? Better come back tomorrow to see how I'm going!
