I got a scanner from a friend of mine to make “trashograms” for my trashsociety.com blog. I’ve had a lot of fun making other scanogram (or digital photograms) art projects with it, all random objects sitting around my house. Check them out…
Creepy vintage doll. Can you imagine the look on a kids face opening this up for Christmas?
So I’ve been thinking about last Christmas and my blogging the 25 days of Christmas. If you’re not familiar with it, here’s a link to the book I made from the blog entries, which are on this blog. I’m already blogging everyday for a year on trashsociety.com, with my no retail shopping challenge. So here’s the big question. Should I blog this year for Christmas?

I’m leaning toward continuing to blog on my trash society site. As much as I love it, it takes a lot of time. In addition to blogging the challenge, I’m adding ideas for different types of gift giving using my no retail shopping restrictions. Restrictions is a harsh word, so you can substitute ‘choices’ or ‘ideas’.
Wow! I’ve had lots of questions about how to order my self-published book. If you would like to order one, please go to http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1124341, or shoot me an email that you want one, as I have ordered some extras. Here’s the book info:
ISBN: yeah, not so much. Self published and I’m not famous… yet.
Price: blurb.com $26.95 + shipping. From me, $26.00 and I’ll pay for the shipping. **All book proceeds go to Casa Hogar Elim**
Softcover: 120 full color pages (like I would ever do black and white)
Language: English, I think.
Book Dimensions: Square, I like squares, 7″ x 7″
Thanks to all of my friends for your encouragement on this crazy little blog project. It has inspired me to follow my four year old dream of writing a book, to hopefully get published by someone other than me. The research begins NOW and you can check out the details at trashsociety.com or become a fan on Facebook at facebook.com/trashsociety.
