Mid week already.. Really? Where is this week going? The days are just getting away from me. eek. I've been working on some little Clip photo holders. I've made these before and really think they are fun. Wooden Spools as the base, decorative wooden dowels, various other wood pieces, paint, paper and a clip to finish it off.
My sis and some friends of ours are planning a little flea market/craft/art event here the first weekend in October, so I've been thinking of some little things a could put together between now and then to sell and also to display things. I'm excited about our little endeavor. Should be fun.
Oh.. brother I was having a rough time trying to get these all set up for a photo. I'd get it almost set up.. bump one and they would all go over like dominos. I started out photographing them out on the deck, like do most of my projects because of the natural light.. BUT... it's been over a 100 here for days and the humidity is ridiculous. So it only took a couple of times out there for me to get frustrated and I moved inside. AGAIN.. the falling over, picking up routine, until FINALLY I get the shot~!
Jokes on me. I upload all my photos later and am just thankful that ordeal is done.. to notice NOW ..that the last time it spilled onto the floor I put things back with a bit of haste. ugh!!!
** note the spelling of "vintage"**
Seriously.. am I the only one that stuff like this happens to???
( off to cheat and fix it in photo shop)
Thank you Photoshop:) whew!
Great for clipping up images, messages, photos .. whatever. I think of all the great products Crafty Secrets has... I use my Creative Scraps the very most. There are so many awesome images to choose from and they are the perfect size, for so many things. If you like vintage photos (really cute ones.. with cute sayings) and you don't have a lot of your own family photos... you'll probably love these as much as I do :) Vintage Photos. I used those in a number of these that I made..but I also used some of the "Merry Christmas" Creative Scraps, and the "Halloween" Creative Scraps. ( Thinking ahead.. wink wink ;)
Also, there is a new post up on the Heartwarming Vintage blog, with lots of really cool samples.
Speaking of photos. I have to share some oldies but goodies I've run across lately. My cousin Paula, had this photo of my mom and I, that I had never seen before. I was so happy she shared it with me. I so love it!
So now digging into the archives. ha I was going though my box of photos of my family that mom had, and run across this. hahah Yep..that's me, holding Weston when he was a babe. He won that big stuffed snoopy in a drawing at McDonald's. Yes.. folks.. those huge glasses and styling shag doo of mine are brought to you courtesy of 1983.
( weird that my hair which was really red then, looks black)
(and yes.. I probably CAN see into the future with those glasses, they are so huge) lol
Then I happened upon this one, and literally laughed out loud. It was one of 4 in photo booth strip. I was trying to set Wes on the stool in the photo booth to get his picture taken. First time in a photo booth...
do you think he's impressed?
What a face!
I sent it to Wes and he got a good laugh also.
I hope you are all making it thru your week smoothly.
Thanks for stopping by!
