Spam! Spam! Spam!

Don't you just hate spam mail? Me too. It's stupid and a waste of 1's and 0's... Well, I've decided to use some of the ridiculous spam email titles to embroider. For no particular reason at all. This one is a work in progress, it will eventually say: "undeliverable pleasure come to claim it". It almost doesn't make sense. Maybe that is the redeeming side to spam mail; its sheer, almost poetical, silliness.

Also, allow me to coin a new word: spambroidery. ;-)

  12. I've seen something like this done as an art installment (not sure where; somewhere out there on the internets). I've been wanting to try it out myself for some time. It's a pretty awesome idea.

    "Spambroidery" is sheer genius.
