Peas Be With You...
I love peas!
My Mom sent me a Country Living magazine in her last package, knowing how much I love magazines.  It is so difficult for me to throw them away. I gradually cancelled all of my subscriptions. I have pretty much cured myself of the hoarding of them by cutting them up before I throw them away. So now I have boxes of garden pictures, funny pictures, animal pictures, etc... which is great for doing those "one of these days" collages. I love cutting up paper too. It's a wonder I don't do more collage than I do. Last night I made this piece while watching The Voice, then promptly put it in the can. (proud of myself haha) I may not have a magazine addiction now,  but Pinterest is it's replacement! I think I am going to challenge myself to do it again, make a collage from the next magazine I have, on the spot, spur of the moment, spontaneously creating it then letting it go...
