Works in Progress

Lots of blog surfing going on. I have discovered so many different artists and scrapbookers too numerous to mention, but I have added their blogs to my links…Unlike most people, my links are my list of where I can find creativity, not necessarily the most popular places on the web.  I know that I am missing out on the big names, but that is not my meaning.  Everyone knows who they are and what they do…I am more interested in the journey of how they got there, so I connect with the people who’s works are still works in progress.

DSC01593DSC01587DSC01588I have a problem with wrinkles…I place the medium on the stronger surface and use a squeege and a rubber roller and I STILL get wrinkles…I have used liquid medium, Mod Pog, YES, glue stick (least amount of wrinkles but not so permanent holding…) all to no avail…Can someone help me?!!!DSC01591The corners are folded, so that explaines that crease but all of the others are not intentional 😦

Vintage Ephemera!

I have been weaning myself off of $bay for sometime now, primarily because the sellers seem a bit harsh for my gentle temperament, lol!  ETSY is now my new drug of choice and I just love, love, LOvE all of the wonderful things that I really need (yeah, right!)! If you have not experienced the thrill and customer service ( and OK:::some damn good freebies, 🙂  You are MISSING something!

I am committing to not buying anymore “stuff” till I have made a big dent in what I have.  Acquiring stuff with the sole intent of making something should come to fruition everyso often…There are buyers, like me out there, but I want to get better with art and scrapbooking so at some point I need to be a consumer of goods, not just a warehouse r of…I remember the theory behind supply side economics and I am sure my instructors would not be impressed with my theoretical application.

I am visiting my neighbors this week, want to set a good blog example!  To all of my friends that I owe packages to, please be patient…postage is SO  %&@£$ (doggone) expensive here, I just sent 12 off today!   Let’s see if we can find a photo!  Can you smell the vanilla and cinnamon?
