Creating with Digital Images

Thankfully, I can find wonderful
antique French ephemera 
in a digital download
(these pictured above are from Sam Poole's Etsy shop)
This wonderful French Notaire document
is from Heather's Ruby&Pearl Etsy shop
My printer has been running nonstop
So many beautiful digital images to print!
***
Very hard to find
the Tim Holtz Assemblage Locket
***
Using authentic antique photos
will always be my preference
but
sometimes, you just cannot part with them
***
Gathering
Collecting
Creating
Here's to another month of studio time!
Thank you for stopping by!

In Between Days

In between my office job
and
creating junk journals
I organize the studio & clean the studio
and more times than not,
I find pieces that I put away and forgot about
happens all the time
***
Here is a peek of inside some of the journals
that will be listed in my shop next week


I have been so busy creating & planning more journals.
Thanks for stopping by!

A Creative Process

 I usually have a messy work table when I'm creating
Of course, some items never get chosen for my shop
The items that are listed in my shop
are carefully chosen
I match bits and pieces of the same color
Oh the creamy whites
Creating kits for you
inspiring collections
with
a few created treasures by me

I had better get busy in the studio
for my next shop opening.

Take care everyone!

Scrolling Through the Past

I recently looked at my Google Photos

and realized that Google was saving some of my pictures

The mystery to me is that not all pictures
were saved automatically
I never really checked because I save my photos to a flash drive.
I will take what I got!
These pictures are from a very long time ago
Oh, the memories....
This was so much fun
scrolling down through the years!
A trip down memory lane

Tintypes and Bundles

 Creating petite journals
with
antique tintypes



All sold out last week
but
I am creating more for the shop
***
Art Bundles

You can expect more bundles
in the future


I realize that like me,
it's impossible to find
all the vintage pieces
that we would find while shopping.
I would shop at antique malls,
winter flea markets,
estate sales and more.
Due to the pandemic, those days are gone!
Soon, I hope to be at it and searching for more treasures!

Hang in there!
Be Safe!

Moving at your own pace


I am just moving at my own pace
refusing boredom and tears
there's simply too much to do in my life


Each day choose to bring some 
happy into your life


Every day it's something else
could be health
could be news
could be changes in your life


I vow to make something good each day
even if it's seeing beauty in the tiniest detail


There sure is a lot of change going on
so, why not meet it head on smiling


I decided long ago to collect and enjoy small pleasures!
If you don't have a hobby or outlet
life can get stale.

 Move at your own pace

Be safe out there
