The Material Whirl: 2012 holiday collage cards for sale

As the holiday season approaches, wouldn’t you love to send a beautiful miniature work of art to your special friends and family instead of a mass-produced boxed card?  Each of these cards consists of an original handmade postcard size collage affixed to a 5×7 blank greeting card with matching envelope, in a clear cellophane bag for protection.  Each collage is made in the unique Material Whirl style from recycled materials — no two are alike.  Send them as cards, or give as gifts!  All cards shown below are available for purchase unless otherwise indicated.
How to purchase:  All of these cards (plus others) are available for $5.00 each plus shipping at my Etsy shop,  (Your shipping will be refunded to you if you live close enough to me that I can deliver your purchases in person.)
I would also be happy to prepare any other available collage on the blog as a greeting card for you at the same price.  If interested, let me know via comment on that particular entry.
Thank you all for your friendship and support of my artwork, and I wish you all a happy holiday season and New Year!



The Material Whirl: 09.01.12 — Be Bold Be Thankful


4-7/8″ x 4-1/4″ on a backing of recycled cereal box cardboard.

“Be bold be thankful be quiet.  Be original be spontaneous be punctual.  Be a star be young be loving.  Be crazy be loud be random.  Be adorable be unique be daring.  Be obnoxious be yourself.”

The Material Whirl: 04.13.12 — It came to me



6″ x 4″, on a backing of cereal box cardboard

“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.  If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”
