Hi! I am not gone forever just incredibly busy.
So glad to see the submissions are continuing and increasing!
However this increase has brought with it a need for me to prune.

If you've found your item removed from the group it is becasue it didn't fit one of a few guidelines.
1.) The items descriptions didn't state what it was upcycled from.
2.) the item wasn't upcycled.
clay items have been removed from the others folder as clay is made for molding. it is not an upcyled product. If clay is used to make an embellishment on an upcycled item or is used in the upcycling of another project it's fine. Poetry is not upcycled. Paint your poetry on an old book and it can be submitted. ;)

Simple right?

If I find that 3 items from one user have been submitted and do not follow these rules then I will remove all submissions by that user. I have a toddler and little spare time. So I don't have time to check EVERY SINGLE SUBMISSION to make sure that the ones that do conform stick to the rules.
This will make my time best spent.

So please keep in the guidelines! If you're not sure feel free to ask!

As always here's The info on the featured folder:…

Hey, I recently submitted a tutorial to this group but then I took it out again because I accidentally put it in the wrong folder. I tried resubmitting it to the right folder over a week ago, but it says my submission has neither been approved or denied yet. I was just wondering if it ever actually got recieved or not or if something might be wrong. Thanks for the awesome group!
