Thought I had already blogged these, then found them when I was sorting my mail art pile. I live in the historic Elgin Watch Factory District. Elgin is know for Elgin Watches, but the factory doesn't exist anymore. Love these…Continue
I think I've posted this upside down, but it works from all angles. For some reason the turquose 50 cent stuck out to me. This is one of a great series on consumerism-aka DKonsumer DKonconciousness-feast for the eyes thank you Lynn!
Steph sent me this mail art in honor of her recent trip to Hawaii. I don't know how she has done this, but it looks like the design in hand done in Sharpie. --it looks like those God's eyes. Hawaii has been good to you thank you Steph!

Always like art with warning labels-it adds to the suspense. Got this great envelope from her packed full of interesting bits and pieces.

I'm really amazed by Carina's techniques. I don't know how or where she gets these vintage transparent overlays, but this piece is perfectly balanced . This is in response to a trashbook I had sent her that said "Be Safe". I love how she has worked this into her return piece. Carina is an amazing talent and each piece has her signature on it, but yet they are all so very…Continue
I received this great knitted piece from Ana. It scanned orange, but it actually red. We have another great knitter like Thom. She has made this trashpo a nice delicate frame on a piece of cardboard. the altered Benjamin is fantastic-he never looked so chic! Thank you…Continue
Beautiful and haunting singing crow by Sandra and amazing trashpo from Susan McAllister. I am so honored to receive Susan's very first trashpo piece. She writes: "Dear Queen of Trashpo. I understand it is spiritually correct to send one's 1st trashpo piece to…Continue
Received two great trashpo pieces. This fantastic laminated American Spirit Cig box and my favorite piece to date from NBS. Nancy has proven that raw trashpo and aesthetic trashpo are not diametrically opposed. Thank you…Continue
