I didn’t either but I worked with a fellow who was the son of a missionary and he said they would get boxes of the stuff. I couldn’t believe it! Reply Elsa Mora on August 14, 2013 at 7:01 am Hi Lyn! I didn’t know that either. Fascinating! Elsa Mora recently posted..Valeria Burgoa. Reply Patrise on February 12, 2014 at 5:01 am What did they do with the used teabags? The slivers of soap I can understand….boil them together to make a gel, but the teabags have me stumped!!! Reply Frances Holliday Alford on September 30, 2015 at 1:54 am I think the tea bags were sent so that another cup of tea could be made. Imagine a time where we thought something like that would be generous? Reply Amy Tavern on August 14, 2013 at 7:37 am Wonderful work! The repetition, layering, pattern, texture, color…everything. Love. Reply Elsa Mora on August 14, 2013 at 9:58 am Yes! I love seeing all her explorations. Elsa Mora recently posted..Valeria Burgoa. Reply Cindy on August 14, 2013 at 12:26 pm Beautiful!!! This is so inspiring. Thank you for sharing this. I feel like I’ve missed an opportunity with my every cup of tea… Reply Elsa Mora on August 14, 2013 at 9:30 pm Yes Cindy! I feel the same way 🙂 Elsa Mora recently posted..Valeria Burgoa. Reply whitney on August 17, 2013 at 10:18 pm lesson: any material can be re-used in a new way to create something visually striking!
