Happiness Is A New Set of Pliers

Yes, it's true, I get that excited over pliers. But I know you can relate...

I'm really jonesin' for a desert junk outing--driving out to my favorite junk piles in the desert to do my part in removing the trash other people think is okay to trash our desert with, grrrrrr. And yes, I realize the irony of the fact that I get excited to find these dump piles as a source of "new" materials. But for now, a trip to Lowe's to replace a couple of new pliers I need for my art is just as fun. I came home with NINE new Kobalt pliers that my mom bought for me...wow, what a treat!!

Now I can get to those mini-mandalas I'm working on. You can see one in progress next to the plier layout; the can lids will be other mini-mandalas :)

So there it is...my material muses. Junk and pliers. And beads. Ooh, and crystals of course. Wire. Insulators. The really cool metal shavings a dear friend shared with me. Rocks with holes, glass....ah my art space calls!!!

So, I would love to know what materials get YOU in your creative space?
