Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends.

I love all types of art, but one of my particular interests is art made from unusual objects. Today's inspiration fits that bill nicely: New York City-based artist Nina Boesch creates her art using discarded MetroCards. What a great way to recycle and at the same time create something beautiful!



You can see more of Boesch's MetroCard creations here.

Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

    1. Thanks, Tara. I'm not really a baker though. I only do these things twice a year; well, I'll do them three times a year once the baby turns one. :)

      It was a great movie! I cracked up, too. :)

    1. I wouldn't have either, although I'd like to hope I'm getting more inventive with my art materials the more I gain inspiration from these wonderful artists. :)
