A Cut Above the Rest

image

Queen City Knives from Clarksville Tn, has recently had their project successfully funded on Kickstarter.com. Established in 2013 this unique business is run by a small town couple, who have been working from a small workshop building to get their idea off the ground. They use repurposed steel to create amazing knives for chef’s and avid huntsmen. They got the Kickstarter up and running to help them expand and be able to provide more business such as online orders. While they are not able to process any orders at this time ( due to handing out some great backer rewards on Kickstarter); they do have a website to browse and ways to contact them for future orders. They are definitely a company to watch and I look forward to them growing larger. Check them out and send them some supportive feedback! : http://queencityknives.bigcartel.com/ . or to take a look at their Kickstarter project click the link below.

Upcycled Playground

My daughter is a rambunctious five year old, constantly running and needing a place to blow off steam, so recentlyive been researching ideas for an affordable outdoor playground. I’m sure that you can do a lot and I have seen a ton of ideas but I’ve been the most inspired by tires. Yep, old used tires making an entire playground to delight your child with hardly a dent to your wallet. So I went online to see what I could find on an upcycled playground made with tires, here are some of the awesome things I came across…

These are just a few ides for playground equipment, but ideas are endless. Its really amazing what you can do with just a little bit of time and paint. I’m excited to do this for my daughter, I know by next summer its gong to be so hard to get her off of her new playground and inside the house!
Here are a couple more ideas that I loved when I was looking, I hope you find them inspiring as well and put this amazing way to recycle into practice in some way!
