Julie of Ex Posto facto fame in Texas sent a bunch of stickers and some great stamps. In a note she writes -" I've been finding stickers everywhere. I hope some of these are waterproof and lovely on your bin." They look great Julie- see for yourself.

From Mim in Richmond VA. She writes - " I, too, trained as a painter/printmaker. Nowadays I make collages using found paper and digital photography. I love participating in mail art calls and have sent stuff to the Sorting Office. Here are some stickers for your wheelie - Skulladay & The Ghost of Mankind are my son's creations. He's in NYC right now to get a webby award."
A colourful bumper sticker from C. Mehrl Bennett in Columbus OH. Also enclosed- "Use A Random Idea - Open your mind to things that have nothing to do with the idea you are developing. Pick out the third word on page 134 of the dictionary - "broom" - how does this relate to what you are doing? What similarities does it have with your idea? Can you use it as a metaphor? Look out your window and find the first thing that has blue in it - "fishing float". How does it shed light on your idea? What random idea can you use to stimulate your thinking?"

Jamie Newton sent 6 stickers he had made himself. In an enclosed not he writes-" A couple (Probably not waterproof ) stickers. I tried this on waterproof stock but, surprise, the ink wouldn't stick). This is your bin's photo stuck to our bin, photographed and back your way."

Roland in germany has sent some DHL stickers with added rubber stampings. I'm not sure how good they will stick as the adhesive is in narrow strips and really meant for parcels. I will try one and see how it fairs in the rain.

Nice assorted pack of stickers made by Treena arrived today. Some rubber stamped with clear plastic film stuck over the top and some not. She has enclosed some clear sticky backed plastic for me to use. Also some cute commercial stickers and the bits leftover. Treena says in enclosed notelet ": I have fractured my elbow and my arm is sore...I feel wonky butI'm slowly getting back into things." Get well soon Treena!
