What Can That Be?


You know I've been working on a book proposal about stuff made from trash. What I haven't told you is that I've gone totally nuts over this stuff. 

A couple of times I've stayed up half the night cause I just can't let go of an idea and haven't figured out how to make it work yet. Other times, half a day slipped away while I puttered, loving every single minute.

I woke up in the night with the idea that I could make a shower curtain out of plastic bags. Yeah, I know. Where does this stuff come from? I have no idea but I love it when my right brain makes leaps my left brain can't quite follow.  I'll let you know how that goes. Might be cool. Might be a disaster. We'll see.

I've got everyone I know saving bottle caps and Altoids tins and pizza boxes and pop cartons and jar lids and plastic bags and liquor bottles and wine corks and. . . . 

I would love--LOVE--to get this book sold. It would be fabulous to   infect other people with inspire others to look at their trash and wonder, What can that be?

*I made this lamp from a vodka bottle. The base started out as a tin box from spicy meat rub. Who knew?

Um. Hope the vodka bottle wasn't affiliated with yesterday's sob fest in any way..
