I don't know about you, but I open ALL my mail, even the stuff I know is junk, because you never know what kind of hidden treasures are lurking inside. I have stacks and stacks of fake credit cards just waiting for an artistic inspiration that will make them into something wonderful. I rarely have to print out return address stickers because I get them free, and I never have to buy a new calendar. My refrigerator is covered in meaningless magnets that are sent to me by credit card companies and realtors, should I ever get the urge to list my house. Having read about my neighborhood, you can probably understand why I wouldn't want to leave. I love a good mystery. Then there is the ubiquitous Business Reply Envelope. They come in everything. I figured there must be some use for these, too, so I did some funny little collages with them, added a little gesso, and used them for drawing backgrounds. This is one I did this evening called Take. I'll do it's counterpart, Give, maybe tomorrow. Recycling is a good thing.
