Meet LESSology co-founder: Yvonne Yam! :)




Photobucket

How about saying hello to our other co-founder - Yvonne Yam?


Hello friends! :) Greetings from sunny Singapore! :) I'm Yvonne and I love to make stuff! My style is eclectic at best but really a mish mash of whatever tickles my fancy at that point in time. I love to experiment with mediums and play with textures but my projects always involve some form of upcycling and loads of colour. It is amazing when you can marry fragments of scrap with an otherwise discarded item to create a wonderful piece of art! :)

As a green crafter, I try my best to make effective use of scraps and upcycle anything that comes my way before they end up on the recycling truck. While things like glass bottles can be recycled, they are often smashed to pieces and require the use of precious energy to make them into useful products again. With upcycling we can extend the life of a product without changing the basic composition of the material.
Thank you for joining me and my awesome partner Angi on this creative venture to do a little something for our environment whilst making something beautiful for ourselves. A win-win for all, don't you think?
Come visit me at my blog Do More With Less where I share my creations, tutorials and funny stories about my life.

Here are some of Yvonne's altered creations.
