Hello, and thankyou for shopping Dustbin Cards. My name is Kathy and I am the proprietor of Dustbin Cards. As the product of a rural,homeschooled,and semi-hippie upbringing, I was able to spend a great deal of time with my grandmas.

Hello, and thankyou for shopping Dustbin Cards. My name is Kathy and I am the proprietor of Dustbin Cards. As the product of a rural,homeschooled,and semi-hippie upbringing, I was able to spend a great deal of time with my grandmas. They were women of extraordinary thrift and repurposing skills and I learned at a young age how to reuse items in creative ways. I am not so young anymore but I find country living still inspires my creativity, since I cannot "just run to the store" and besides, I might have to jump start the pickup truck...

I now create handcrafted cards with "found" items. Stuff that otherwise might end up in a dustbin. Recycling at its' most fun! Bits from candy wrappers,tags from jeans, labels from your favorite beer, buttons, bows,raffia and yarn. All of my ephemera and decorations are found; from yard sales, thrift stores, estate sales or given to me by friends and family who know that junk makes me happy. I make use of the lovely and the lost,and my handmade cards are crafted with quality papers, featuring collages embellished with unique,one of a kind treasures.

You can be assured that no-one else will give or receive a handmade card just like yours. I am committed to providing you with the opportunity to choose a wee piece of art to gift to a friend or family member. Something that they can display and know how much you care.

My wish is that you enjoy using these handmade cards as much as I enjoy creating them. There is a little bit of homemade love in each one.
