1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse - SUBMIT!

The persistently awesome Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft just snagged a sweet deal with Quarry Books to compile the next book in their "1000" series": 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse!

He is collecting submissions now, and here are some of the categories he's looking for:
  • Paper Craft– Consigning paper to the recycling bin is a shame. Do you make interesting things out of paper?
  • Art– Does your art involve clever reuse of materials in installation, sculpture, collage, painting or other media?
  • Jewelry and accessories– Our definition here is very broad—we’re looking for all kinds of personal adornment, handbags, belts, hats, etc.
  • Clothing– We’re seeking all kinds of clothing mash-ups, stitch-ups, and makeovers.
  • Fiber and fabric- How about renovated soft goods made from recycled or vintage linens, quilts, fabrics, fibers, sweaters, yarns, rugs?
  • Housewares and furnishings– We’re looking for repurposed furniture, ceramics, serving dishes, utensils and miscellaneous home goods.
  • Houses, interiors, and environments– Is your living space made of reused materials? Have you made a visionary environment out of recycled materials?
  • GeekCraft and ManCraft– Do you make repurposed items with geek appeal? What about traditionally “manly” items such such as grills, antler furniture and armchair go-karts?
  • UnClassifiable– We are encouraging the submission of work that doesn’t fit into any of the above boxes.
Find his Call for Entries right here -- the deadline is January 5, 2009, but he encourages early entries.
