|Mail, mail and more and more mail....|
Can there ever be too much good mail?
|Sorry to have to admit it, but yes....there can be too much mail, especially when you've been at it for as long as I have....|
I have boxes and boxes and boxes of it plus shelves and cupboards filled with it and some mail hung on rings...
|I have officially run out of storage room. So, what do I do?|
Well, recycle and re-purpose it, of course.
I have been sorting through endless boxes of mail and sorting things into piles...
|Some of it I am just admiring....looks how pretty these piles are....Before I put the mail into boxes I sorted it by who it as from and wrapped ribbons around it...|
|I have two envelopes stuffed with postage stamps I tore off the envelopes......|
|And I found some terrific stamps to use for making "Stamp Heads"....(I wish I had more of these, aren't they perfect?)|
|And I started a "collage papers" pile and started layering the papers into the sketchbook I am filling with collages...|
Here is a "start"....
|and another......pasting down the first layer and covered with a little gesso to mellow it out, leaving the images still showing through...|
|All of this is from one dear friend....|
|I think I still have a lot of sorting and repurposing to do.....|
I should invite some of my more organized friends (you know who you are) to come over and help me. I'd give you treats.
