Trash Talk

This week my trash talk topic was made easy when my awesome friend Aisha who is a real artist sent me some links that she knew I would love.

Bonnie Meltzer is from Portland, Oregon and she is an artist who makes very mixed-media constructions from a variety of unusual materials: crocheted wire, recycled computer parts, painted surfaces and digital photography. I really enjoyed browsing through her artwork and became very inspired.

This link especially sparked my interest Art of Recycling Competition

Entry forms and details are available on the site.
I cannot believe I missed this little gem of a site and it has a blog too ATASDA Australian Textile Arts & Surface Design Association Inc

Thank you Aisha for your contribution.
That's it for talking trash.
Don't forget, It's your trash, think about what you are going to do with your trash and most importantly reduce/recycle/refashion/re-use your trash.

Cheers All
Melanie

Oh! I cant look! I dont need another excuse to allow myself to collect more STUFF to do STUFF with SOMEDAY LOL!
But I do have one for you, you know those big fridge magnets that some companies print calendars on and drop in your mailbox? Well, staple scrap paper to them, and Wha La! Instant grocery list or to do pad for your fridge...I felt pretty smug when I came up with that...please feel free to share it, Cheers!
