I waas so excited to receive this trashbook from Sarah. She has used junkmail, magazine pages, lottery tickets, a fully intact teabag which I love, A teabag wrapper that she has converted into a little pocket envelope with something tucked in. The really appreciate the Macbeth Royal Shakespeare Theater ticket. It kind of makes the place she lives real to me. Thank you so much Sarah-these are just a sampling of the pages-love all of them!

That was the first and only lottery ticket I have bought in over 5 years... I thought, why not, it might happen... But no. No millions for me. 2 numbers, which equals zilch. Ah, well!

I'm honored to be the recipient of your first trashbook. I just smelled it and the teabag does still smell when you sniff close up=great trasharomatics in the good smell category. I like how you put the 'why not try' sticker by the lotto page. I'm assuming it was not a winner or it wouldn't have ended up in a trashbook!

Glad you like it Diane! It was pretty fun to put together - I've never done a trashbook before, and there's just so much stuff around to use that I had to stop myself!

The teabag is chamomile, and I hoped it would make the book smell nice. The ticket from the Royal Shakespeare company was a little treasure I found in an old purse, from a school trip to London in 1999, when I was 15! I knew you'd appreciate it, so I sent it along to a new loving home ;)
