Disposable Art…

Whatd’ya bet that the art of collage was begun by artists unable to throw away interesting scraps of what some would consider trash? You come into ownership of these bits of things and they throw you into the dilemma of…to throw or not to throw? Maybe scrapbooking came about from this too… Take for instance, tags that come on certain articles of clothing. Or those “gift card tins.” Why? Why a pretty little tin that is hard to pitch! Gift cards themselves have gotten to nifty they fall into this category… although I think that in some cases prehaps the idea is to re-load them with $$ and keep using them.  I just learned today that I get bonuses for using my Starbucks gift card ( Thanks Jake!!)…  I took a picture of it to share on this blog. How cool is this?

from Starbucks... the little bird is part of the sleeve
