Making things. Affordable and accomplishable things.

Suitable for amateurs, average Janes/Joes.**

**Particularly useful for urbanites lacking power tools or even a kitchen table.

WHEN:
Whenever I goshdarn can. Lay off me.

WHY:
Because looking at other people's ideas is awesome fodder for my noggin so shouldn't I share a decent idea that someone else can make perfect? Send me a pic if you make something similar to what I post!

WHO'S THIS "ME"?
I am Lynn. I'm an urban planner by training, and a maker of random items by vocational calling. I do my projects in my apartment in Brooklyn, or on the stoop or roof. If you see a 5' 3 7/8" female breaking concrete blocks out on your street, you probably live on my block.

I love getting mail around the holidays and it always irks me to throw away the envelopes — I like seeing my name and address in other people’s handwriting.  

I can’t remember most of my past apartment addresses (shameful) so I thought it would be nice to keep pieces of other people’s envelopes to me as a historical record of where I’ve lived.  Plus it’s fun to remember the friends that sent something (and where they lived when they did).

All I needed was a whole punch and a metal ring, plus a scissors to cut envelope fragments.  Easy.  Dangerously sentimental, lightly indulgent, patently hoarder-like.  But I like the idea of a tiny historical record in other people’s gorgeous script.
