If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

SCRAP in Portland, OR has had a big bin of memory foam for awhile now. I grabbed a bunch, but didn't know precisely what to do with it save for squishing (which is quite satisfying). But then, inspiration struck!

Earrings!



I think I'll be clipping things onto and squishing my earrings all day tomorrow.





So, what do you cool kids think?

Those are fun. I'd probably clip things onto them all day too.
I have a question for you though. What exactly is SCRAP? I keep hearing about it, so I checked out the website, but I couldn't figure out what it really is. I live 5 minutes out of Portland so I'm kinda really interested. Cheesy Thanks.

SCRAP is a magical land full of unicorns and elves!

Actually, it's this wonderful project with a store and classes that is based off of reusing everything and anything. All sorts of businesses and people donate things to them. A small sample of what I've acquired: a circuit board, old CDs, interfacing, records (cheaper than at Goodwill!), carpet samples, unused pretty Japanese thank you cards, zippers, old sewing patterns...

The selection changes all the time, and it's a rather odd bunch of stuff, all of which is EXTREMELY useful. If it weren't for SCRAP, a good bunch of the materials it has gathered would have been thrown away.

And I wouldn't have these awesome earrings!

That's fantastic. I should definately venture into Portland then, as soon as I break this stash of materials some designers, and my carpenter dad just unloaded on me.
Again Great earrings.

I love SCRAP!  but what is memory foam, besides a base for interactive earrings?

i go to scrap for buttons, magazines, transparency sheets, and like, everything else in the world. whooo!  i have a big jar of glass etching cream that i got from there for a few dollars.  one time they had a big bin full of black foam beer cozies that were 8/$1--i bought a few dozen and stencilled my band's logo on them, and we gave them away on tour last year.

and they have 2" wide elastic for like, 25 cents a yard!! OMG!!

It's what's used to make those Tempurpedic mattresses, among other things. It's rather light, squishy, and resilient! Woooo!
