Beautiful Re-use. I get a kick out of making something from my neighbors garbage and then them wanting to buy it back from me.

Hi Cigarbox Friends!

I'm Shelley, born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and now residing in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I play the Ukulele, Guitar, the Singing Saw and i'm reaaaaal good at the Washtub Bass! I'm an  artist & performer and use inventive recycling in most of my work. I also have my own shop in Rotterdam, The Jumping Flea.

To find out just how much trouble i've gotten myself into you can also visit me at

Those songs you said you'd love to play on are getting released July 20th.  I hope you like the Artwork!!  I totally envy you for being overseas, however, I will be there by the end of summer.  We should jam!! ~  Mojo
