I'm back. As I told you in my last post I have been cleaning. As a cartoon figure I rolled up my sleeves and sighed as I surveyed the territory - my room is a sea of its own with hidden treasure chests of mostly written riches.
|Cascading T-bag Art - by Little Dragon|
Everywhere I turned there were piles of books, articles, magazines, newspaper cuttings, journals, scraps of paper with scribbled notes and poems, clothes, and a plethora of small, miscellaneous items that I have been given or plundered on my voyages around the world. Every time I had to put away something without reading it, I felt like I had disowned a friend. I couldn't do it. So, I slipped those items I wanted to get together with again into The Box of Reacquaintance - for later communication.
Today's photo is something from that box - my own-designed T-bag art. I made those small tea bag mandalas a few years back, inspired by some creative ladies in South Africa who decided to make a livelihood from spent tea bags. They created a small business called The Original T-Bag Design where tea bags are collected and dried and used as canvases for small art pieces. Their motto:
A woman is like a tea bag - you only know how strong she is when she is put in hot water.
Well, personally I am vehemently opposed to putting women in boiling water, but I do recommend anybody who is looking for a little creative spark try some t-bag art. It is quite a bit more satisfying than cleaning.
