For awhile now I have been collecting vintage earrings at the flea market. I realize that turning them into magnets is not a new idea. But what an easy and quick way to transform them into something useful again. I think they are even more beautiful the second time around!
A few months ago, I finished making a shadowbox for my Aunt Marilyn. Her maiden name is Brown and she wanted to display the photographs of her family history. The images shown do not include the frame of the shadowbox.
The other day I popped in to see Janine at Uppercase Gallery to say hello and give my personal congrats on her recent launch of the new magazine full of curiosities. I can’t wait to eat up every page with delight!
Like a bad habit, I am always collecting and I find that it is always more fun to give away things to those who will appreciate them the most. So I knew that these numbered napkin holders would fit perfectly at home with Janine. And it became the inspiration for a Type Tuesday!
Santa could not wait for Christmas day so we opened up presents early this year. I have been a very good girl! He gave me a Canon 40D camera.
I am so thrilled! For me, this is like going from driving a hatchback to a Hummer. I have lots to learn so I am reading the instruction manual like the bible. I started using the camera this afternoon so here are the results of me playing around with it. Pretty amazing considering that I only used natural lighting (late in the day) and winged it with no tripod. As I get the hang of it, I will be sure to post more. Wish me luck!
