Some More Scrappiness....

There's so much "stuff" rolling around in my head that I can't seem to think straight! I have so many things I want to create and I find myself flitting from one thing to the next....and that doesn't always work! Sometimes I lose my focus.

I have several doodle/designs started but none finished and today I began making more scrappy mail art. This scrappy stuff really appeals to me. Maybe because I have so much paper! I could use up paper for the rest of my life and probably not ever run out! And I'm serious!!

Today I made this piece of mail art....

This is one side....

and this is the other side where the address will go. In fact I started to put a name on it so that's why there's a post-it note in the lower corner!

I may add some paint to this or maybe not. I love these random pieces of art. And who doesn't like to get something fun in the mail?! Junk mail and bills aren't that exciting....unless you're like me and save all the junk mail to make art. This postcard is fairly large. It started life as a postcard from Netflicks! I added paper and images cut from magazines, a few stamps and stickers and it's much more fun now.


listening to: MSNBC on the TV (HB has it on)
last thing I ate: oatmeal this morning with
flax seeds, chopped walnuts, brown sugar, and almond milk
wearing: long sleeved tee shirt, jeans, and a sweater! It's chilly today!
reading: still reading The Three Musketeers and All the King's Men
anticipating: LOST tonight!! Only a couple more 'til the finale.

Have a great evening....and make some art!!


  1. You always manage to do something creative Janet.
    I must confess I stick my junk mail back in the mail box..!

  2. girlfriend you are just too funny! when your muse is on a roll she is on a roll :)

  3. That is really, really neat! And I loved reading what you're up to. Your oatmeal sounds so appetizing, I'm on my way to the pantry now to duplicate it :)

  4. ooo thank you for the inspiration. I have a box of pre-cut images I've collected while procrastinating from school work that I think I will spend my evening with!

  5. You have too much fun. That is a great idea, I might steal it and start mailing my family letters in fun envelopes and stop using email so much.

  6. Love scrappy....I know we get so much junk mail..but I love your junk mail that turns into art.

  7. Love your mail art, Janet! And anything that reuses junk mail gets my vote. I have a whole bin full of the stuff that I constantly dip into for background papers.

  8. what a great way to use up lots of paper supplies... another inspiring idea!
