Just a reminder that there are 2 more weeks to get into the drawing for the July give-away ephemera envelope. I'll draw a name on August 1st from all of the comments left on any post this month.
If you haven't commented, please jump in. Extra ephemera is always welcome, right?
We had a little craft day yesterday at Vintage Arts Studio.
I videotaped Bethany making a pencil holder. She sat right down & got to crafting while the rest of us were gabbing and unpacking.
I'm struggling to edit her tutorial because you hear a whole bunch of people talking in the background and they get louder and louder as the video goes on. And yes, I'm one of them.
Instead, here's a little video of her explaining the finished project to me. Isn't she a doll?
A wonderful time - I can't wait to do it again.
I'm taking part today in Seth Apter's Buried Treasure project. Bloggers are invited to dig for treasure on past blog posts, to give new readers a taste of what the bloggers are most proud of on their own blogs.
I have a few that stood out for me & couldn't decide, so without further ado...
April 9: The latest pages in my gluebook...
...featuring one of my favorite spreads in my vintage gluebook:
...this was one of those things going nowhere that suddenly coalesced for me, so I like the composition, images and just the general feeling behind the frustration turing into delight.
March 27: Something for the wall...
The first book cover collage I did in a long time; this one got me back into making them. I especially like that I used the entire inside of the cover (that's the spine in the center), I added paper I designed myself and a CDV I'd been hanging onto waiting for the perfect piece.
And last...December 30: Home Again
A personal post I wrote about my Mom's funeral and cleaning her house; but it always seems to me to be about my brothers and sisters.
Well, that's it...I hope you check out Seth's post and the entire list of participants, there are some amazing blogs on that list!
In case you ever wondered what kind of pages went into an ephemera book, I sat down & filmed this little video to show the inside of one. There's no narration, just music, and I turn pages pretty quickly, so it'll give you a look.
The music is Enjoit by Roger Subirana.
Still photos of the book are in the Etsy listing.
