Junk Mail Project:: Mosaic Birdies & Giveaway Winners

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Well, here I am posting on a Saturday. What was I thinking ending the Giveaway today? Don't you people know I don't work on the weekends?

Actually, this weekend Mr. Smarty is wearing his professional athlete hat -specifically, a bike helmet--and doing a century-ride in some Texas town I've never been--so I've got some time. Thought I'd post what Belle and I did yesterday afternoon while I'm posting the winners.

We sketched a parakeet and an owl (or I did and Belle traced mine), but you could easily use a coloring book image.

Scrap paper--really anything goes here-wrapping paper, candy wrappers, cellophane, foil, cardstock, junk-mail..ripped in the shapes needed to give definition to your picture.

And now I interrupt this post to bring you the winners:

Thanks to all who entered my Uprinting.com postcard giveaway! I wish they let me pick everyone, but since I couldn't, I let Random.org do the hard part. Congrats, Lauraslefthook and 3Blessings! I'll contact you soon with the details!

Aren't custom cards super sweet? I would just hate to make 200 of these babies-think I would scan it and let Uprinting.com handle the masses.

What else can we do with junk mail?

so... i still have that stack of diapers i pulled out for you... ?? yes, i'm slow. do you still want them?


MissMeliss said...

i'm back. :)

i didn't mean for anyone not to want to see that movie... but i guess if i had known (read: actually read the back of the box) before buying it... we might not have seen it either. i thought, it's Tigger... he's harmless. lol

but yeah, kind of crummy feelings surfaced.

and i didn't want you to think i forgot about the diapers!! :)
