My Resene Upcycling Award entry

Kim from Aokautere - Fitzherbert

Hi my name is Kim. I recently started making pet houses, tunnels and cat scratches. This is how it all came about. We purchased a flooring business a year ago. I was concerned when I saw the offcuts being thrown away after each carpet install had taken place. I started storing the off cuts away, hoping I would come up with a plan. I also asked the installers to please keep any off cuts aside so that I didn’t have to rummage in the bins. A few months later my fiancé showed me some tubing and asked me if I wanted them. I was delighted as I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I got straight to work and made one for my cat Archie, my sons cat and my daughters cat and dog. They all loved them 🐾. It brings me joy to know that I have saved these things going to the landfill. I am also donating money from each sale to HUHA, I hope this will be a help to them as they do amazing work with animals, please have a look at there website. I would like to thank the staff at flooring design as they have been very supportive. If I was to win this amazing prize I will be donating it to HUHA.
