This weekend project has been re-organizing and cleaning out my studio. I wanted a way to have at my fingertips, some of my most favorite embellishments that are not 3 dimensional. I took a wood box that sits in my studio, holding some favorites from other bloggers and put those things elsewhere and made 5 chipboard and paper index file dividers. Here is a peek at them.
I used up some old stickers and vintage embellishments that I had. Love using those stickers on something!
A little envelope filled with vintage stamps is attached with a paperclip
I have so much vintage and vintage look ephemera, but I got tired of looking thtough it all in different places.
This came to my by a blogging friend on one of my many matchbox swaps.
Here is is altoghether.
Here is the lovely wood box that it all sits in. Just more eye candy for one of my work spaces.
Another view. but you will have to wait and see how it looks in the room, for the 3rd annual Where Women Create, coming in July. If you are interested in that, look at the top of my sidebar and click.
It is great fun for all!
And also check out some of these beautiful German Dresden embossed foils
. . . and the intricate little silhouette here is so delicate. It is also from Germany I believe.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
