Raw Material Origin Story #1

My raw materials come to me in lots of different ways. 

I have friends that save me parts and pieces of things, people bring me things they found on vacation or on a walk.

Most recently we were over at our friends house for the weekly “stuff our face and dungeon crawl Sunday”. There was a sizable box on her kitchen table. I looked inside; it was FULL of wee metal tins filled with even smaller mints. They were from a promotional products company. I asked her if she was going to do anything with them. She wasn’t and gave them to me on the condition that her kids keeps the mints. 

So, for the next 10 minutes my friend and I studiously emptied fifty odd tins worth of tiny mints into gallon ziplock baggies. 

It was a win/win. She got to keep her candy and I got art supplies!

I will say the mints were delicious, though…you know…quality control and all that.
