Workshops & Tutorials

I've spent a good part of the week taking pictures, editing and posting on etsy.
I'm an avid hunter, gatherer and my tactic has always been
'1 for me 1 to sell'.
It's getting tight in my studio (and the half of the garage I've taken over) so I'm doing some editing, paring down so to speak.
I need room for all the treasures I will be bringing home from Warrenton next month.
I collect not only jewelry, but the boxes to hold it all too.
A lot of what you see was given to me by awesome friends & family.
This box of old stamps belonged to my step father. There are 100s upon 100s of stamps from all over the world! I could spend hours sorting them out and organzing them into catagories.
I love to use these in my art projects.
I have a pretty healthy love for anything Dennison too.
When I'm working on a journal page and it needs something to pop I reach for these!
I love hunting for these guys and I'm waiting for the day I find the Elusive blue label!
If you love them too, I listed some in my Etsy shop today.
Everywhere I turn there's something of meaning.
This old trunk holds colorful trims and what nots.
Filled with bow ties and ideas.
Do you like scrap metal?
I want to share one of my latest finds.
An old salesmans catalog from the 1920s found at Montgomery Street in Fort Worth.
It's enormous - 20" tall and weighs a ton.
The pages are thick cardboard and somewhere in time it was tranformed into a scrapbook.
I do love an altered scrapbook but, oh to have seen this in the original condition........
It's actually pretty cool because enough of the original catalog shows through on many pages. And the ephemera that fills each page is fantastic!
I just want to share a few of the pages with you.
Check out my Etsy shop, I'll be adding more tomorrow.
