"I used to collect junk mails and free catalogs.
Reason 1 : To study English.
Reason 2: To save images as collage materials.
Reason 3: All other part could be hand made papermache.
by tearing them into small pieces. Except PLASTIC WINDOWS of the window envelopes. I made huge collection of windows of window envelopes.
Thanks a lot my supporters, friends for collecting window envelops and even sent them to me internationally from Japan, Spain, France, New Zealand, addition to all over the USA. Many were very colorful, in different sizes, came with different security camouflage design inside of them."
