A Little Vintage

Just for the record I worked in a school library for 7 years when I lived in Las Vegas and I LOVE to read. Yesterday I came across a couple of older school readers and I just had to buy them knowing I could make some fun paper crafts with their pages.

I ended up making some tags and flower embellishments. Love 'em!

I've had a bunch of tins tucked away just waiting to be altered so the other day I decided to get one out and have some fun. Here is the results! I thinks it's way cool and fun! Of course this one has PINK on it! I'll definitely be making more.

Happy Days

Last night I was up pretty late on the computer (okay, I admit... I'm up late on the computer pretty much every night!) when I saw I had an email. It was from a fellow Etsian who wanted to let me know she had mentioned me in her blog and that she hoped I didn't mind.... MIND?!?!? I was elated! How cool is that?

So, if you'd like to read what she wrote about me (well, my CARDS) take a peek here!
