And to think Id been simply tossing those colorful, glossy ads in the recycle bin. Dang you! Now my pile of 'stuff to keep to craft with' just got bigger.

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

I absolutely love this.  I'm doing this when I get home!  Smiley  Only with all of my magazines that have been collecting.  Thankfully I don't have a moody neighbor.

I love this on so many levels! Not only is it just very pretty on its own, it also incorporates recycling, and it was a way to relieve frustration about a difficult situation. It's brilliant!

"No junk art without irony", Bwahahaha! It's beautiful, though, and so simple! The tree motif you chose is so stylized; I like it! I certainly know what it's like to have annoying neighbors, though, so I feel you! I'm soooooo glad we're getting a house in the next few months, and I hope you'll be rid of him (or he'll change his ways) someday too!

I absolutely LOVE this AND what it stands for!! Good for you!! I would LOVE to do this also, so would like to ask a question and/or favor of you...is there any way i could get the template for the tree that you used? I am not much of an artist, and this is absolutely lovely!

In any case, this is a great use of junk mail, and i shall be trying it out!! Thanks for the idea!
