Hi! I’m Amber Ladley & I like to talk trash ;)

Why? Because we have too much of it and I believe I have found a creative solution to help reduce it.

Intrigued? Read on 🙂

Finding creative inspiration in everyday waste.

It’s like a reflex for me when I see something being thrown away. My mind instantly jumps to all of the ways the discarded object could provide another use before it’s buried in our Earth. We humans have literally created mountains of trash. It’s embarrassing, yet I totally understand. Our lives are built to move very quickly today and convenience is a necessity to keep up…or is it?

Flip me over and you’ll see a crazy crafty woman. If you’ve known me for more than 2 minutes, you know I love to craft. I bleed glue and radiate creative energy whenever I get the chance to talk about it. If you have a pile of usable trash, I have ideas. If you’d like to work together, check out my offerings below or send me a note to connect.
