The theme this week at The Three Muses is the newspaper. Now I have to admit that I've never been a newspaper reader even before the internet, but when I was very young, and I mean very young (before my teen years), I loved the comics.
So I decided to make one of my altered boxes with the Sunday Comics. They were my favorite, because they were in color. I probably haven't read the comics since I was that young, so I looked through them to see if some of my favorites were still there. The only one that 's still being published is Blondie--that was on my top 10 along with Little Lulu, Nancy, Winnie Winkle, and Archie--boy am I dating myself! And there's others that are still around like Peanuts, Beetle Bailey and Prince Valiant--who reads Prince Valiant anyway?!--well somebody obviously did and still does.
The newspaper unfortunately is probably on its way out too--I think it will be around for a while, because alot of people still enjoy their morning coffee and paper, like my husband. But even he's gone over to the dark side--he has his morning coffee with the internet--let's face it, that's where we can find the most up-to-date news.
I really enjoyed this theme--I would never have thought of making a box from the Sunday Comics--now that's what I call recycling!
