i have a table where i throw junk after every walk, and when the table starts overflowing, i know it's 'that time again.'
time to play sift through the rubble:
post-its go here,
tire weights go there,
paper goes here (color coded, of course!),
newspaper and cardboard go here,
toy body parts go there,
and so on.
and i'm slowly amassing the next batch of goodies to put in my next book (called 'stuff & junk, an obsessed artist finds L.A.' - due out this fall/winter, cross my fingers..) it'll be similar to my last book, but focus purely on L.A. finds.
