Junk Mail Gems on Etsy

Hey there,
Many of you have told me I should set up a shop on Etsy, so I finally decided to give it a whirl. I just finished setting up an Etsy shop for Junk Mail Gems...check it out! I don't have everything up there, but it's a start. I'll see if it is worth keeping up. You can still see my full line of products at Junk Mail Gems.com! I literally JUST put it up and have 18 views on my wallets. Not sure how that works out, but I'll take it! :-)

Beautiful Magazine Mobiles

Gotta share this cool product that my design savvy sister recently emailed my way...Check out these beautiful mobiles by Frazier & Wing, made out of recycled magazine pages!

So gorgeous!! This morning I took a break from some of my design work (as if I need a break from something I love), to make some more paper beads. Keep an eye out at Junk Mail Gems as I'll be updating my bead section with some new products and new improvements to what's already there! Or, sign up for my newsletter on the first page to keep really up-to-date. (I'll give you a juicy tip...I'm planning to include a coupon in my next issue!!)

Elevating Garbage to Art

Sometimes trash is pretty enough as it is, without turning it into something else! Check out what New York City artist Justin Gignac is doing with the trash he finds on the streets of NYC. You can purchase an elegant box of signed, dated, colorful NYC trash for only $50. And don't worry, every box is sealed, and will not leak or smell!

Pen Chandelier

Well, I just got my latest issue of ReadyMade and am tempted to give the MacGyver challenge another whirl. The new challenge is to find a way to make something out of old dead pens.

I looked around the web and found a few cool ideas to get the juices (ink) flowing...

Check out this cool pen chandelier! I have a feeling this was not made with dried up, dead pens, but I could see someone making a cool lamp shade if they've saved up enough old pens!
