Thanks for the much needed reminder @adamjk #jktoday
Two weeks into the year and I’ve been sending a small treat every day. So far I’ve sent postcards, ribbons, and a pack of balloons… anything really!

Super stoked to announce my collaboration with Stay Home Club coming in Feb! Shirts, prints, totes, and patches will make up the first ever capsule collection released through Stay Home Club, and I am honored to be included along the likes of Olivia Mew and her club of amazing artists that have collaborated on past projects :’)
I’ve completed 120 “week in scraps” collages since August 31st, 2011, one per week with the exception of a single collage for January 2013. The best thing about doing this is being able to give focus to the overlooked ephemera of daily life, and find new ways to treasure small things. Some weeks are boring, but it’s always honest. You can see each individually here.
Along the way I’ve been very inspired by other artists’ work. Janice Wu does gorgeous watercolor illustrations of “seemingly worthless objects.” Nicole Lavelle uses collected objects and scraps to perfectly compliment the sentimentality of her work. Jason Bartell does meticulous charcoal drawings of bands’ set lists. Kate Bingaman-Burt has drawn a daily purchase for over six years!
Photographer Devin Castro has been following this blog for a few years now, and three months ago he started posting his own week in scraps on instagram. His #myweekinscraps hashtag has taken off, and there are currently over 350 different collections! It caught me by surprise, but it’s so awesome to see these from others, especially transit tickets from other cities, which is my favorite!
Share your own with hashtag #myweekinscraps on tumblr, instagram, or anywhere else. It’s amazing what you can make out of almost nothing at all.

Someone used my postcard to submit to PostSecret this week! Really happy to see this, that’s exactly the point of these new year, new page, blank slate, start fresh cards. Things are what you make of them, and this made my day, whoever you are. I hope you succeed this year too.
