I'm now in week 3 of the Strathmore journaling workshop. My pages pretty much look the same with just more color added in the background and little details. There's one more week, and I'll post it when I'm finished. Once I start, I get real fussy with the details--does anyone else have this problem too?
Well, I wanted to do another page, and I decided to do the very first one. All the journal artists say to start in the middle somewhere, because of the fear of messing up a brand new journal, and not to start at the beginning. But I wasn't "afraid", so I made page #1-
Since it's my journey into the journaling world, I had to use the map for the collage elements. I really liked making my face on the map!
And now on to the Ebay. I've been cleaning and "purging", but there are some things that I can't possibly throw out, but yet have enough of these items to last me 2 lifetimes, so I put them up on Ebay. Let me show you what is up for bid--
I have some vintage handles that are aged very nicely, plus these larger hinges.
These 2 great vintage magazines that are in remarkably good condition--great victorian images and ads!
And how about this fun lot--all of it's included in this cigar box. That book is dated 1892!
And speaking of journaling or possibly altered books--here's a great lot of children's board books.
Everytime I saw them this summer at garage sales, I would get them---I could now start a board book library.
These are all starting at low bids and if you want more info, you can go to my Ebay site HERE.
And on a side note, Darla asked me if I was having problems with blogger--you know moving photos around or changing your text--well-- haven't we all. Somedays she (Miss Blogger) can be very disagreeable, but she's nothing compared to MS EBAY--this lady is in full PMS mode! It took me about 2 hours to list these 4 listings. Alot of times when I would press continue, it would tell me that the web page was "expired"--just a way of saying--start over and do it all again! But I didn't give up, and they're now all listed.
I also wanted to tell you all about my latest purchase. When I was at Border's I bought this setchbook (a nice 5 x 7 size) I have papers that I've made sketches and ideas scattered all over the house. And it was the last straw when it took me over an hour to find this sketch that I made and put in a place where I could "find" it. So now this book never leaves my side with all of my ideas in it. I now have a little black book--
P. S. American Idol starts tomorrow--I'm very excited!!
