Well, I have opened my Etsy Shop again! I'm not sure if I can handle it or not, but what the heck! It is pure fun for me and I need the pressure of it being open to light a fire under my rear. Perhaps now I'll work to find the time to put goodies together.
My lone listing right now is antique wallpaper, which if you look, you can find more on Etsy as well. It is so much to work with. It is instant history and patina in your art, crafts or scrapbooks. It obviously is not acid free, but I spoke with a woman at Stamping Memories, and she mentioned that there is a spray that will seal your antique papers and thus, make them acid free. So, if you would like your memories preserved for an eternity, (just too long for my liking..) there are options out there to use up what humanity has already made, without using more toner, printers, copiers, paper, ink, etc.. That is why I love to use vintage and antique items so much. (and why I offer them in my shop) There is more history and spirit in them, than in the new, reproduction products mass produced.
This piece was made with entirely antique and vintage items.
Another of my goals for this year is to become more aware of the environment around me and how I impact it. My global footprint so to speak.. I have decided to join the Living Green Challenge at Better Homes and Gardens. Once I can get logged in, that is. :) It is slower than molasses in winter right now.. I'll keep you updated..
Enjoy your day, stay warm! Oh! I forgot to mention, this morning it was -4 degrees outside. Yes, that is MINUS 4! Damn! It's cold.
