vacation + free time = first post.

So, I've been meaning and wanting to create a blog for a long while now. Finally getting around to it now that I'm on VACATION! Oh yeahhh...that's what I'm talking about. It's been all of 3 days now and I know there's at least 7 more, but it always goes by way too fast, doesn't it? Trying to enjoy it and relax throughout the course as much as I can.

Yesterday, I went to the flea market with my Mom and little cousin. Picked up a box lot of ephemera for $'s got some neat things in it...old war ration stamp booklets and the like. Not sure how I feel about potentially tearing and inking that stuff up, but we'll see. I decorated the box a bit and right now it's sitting pretty atop my patterned paper cart. Also pick up some great vintage buttons, that look amazing after a good cleaning with an old toothbrush. Can't wait to use these on some layouts and other crafty projects! Here's some pics:

In other news, I added 2 new mini notecard sets to my
etsy store today. Used lots of goodies from my scrapbooking stash on these...

Now, I'm off to get ready to attend my first wrestling event with Tim tonight. He's very excited...he's been to a ton and we got free tickets to tonight's...should be entertaining, if nothing else. :)

Have a good one,

Love your cards! The one with the feather is so cool! I know what you mean about not wanting to tear up that "real" ephemera. Great find tho!
