Lydia Krupinski is the avid upcycling mad-woman behind popular Etsy shop Pierogi Picnic. When she's not busy fantasizing new ways of using old threads, Lydia can be found wrangling volunteers and fosters for Chicago’s oldest and most respected animal welfare organization – The Anti-Cruelty Society. And should you be lucky to catch her on a day off, you'll probably find her canoodling with one of her four rescue pets, crafting up new eco-tutorials, exploring the city by bike, reading along the lakefront or resting in her urban homestead.
