rain rain rain
falling on the window a/c
kitty jumping from the kitchen counter

me type type typing
late night travelers outside
mug of soup slirpppppppppp
kitty running running running
a random chirp from some neighbors neglected fire detector
banging radiator pipes getting warmer
all of these noises ushering me into a trance, it's time for sleep

scraps & snaps

I am in the process of joining several of my favorite ideas, styles,and techniques to capture my favorite scraps and memories. I have begun with an old novel, this one has extra charm due to water damage which I just love. I have added to it my favorite papers, cut outs, and random found objects to give my book character, dimension and just plain fun. Below are just a few of my favorite pages. My process has only begun, each page has been decorated and now as I collect photos, scraps, random finds I will add them. I think I love the process more than the outcome.

a frame for who knows what yet.

this paper is currently my favorite. i plan to distress it a bit because it is
from the scrapbook store, i don't want it to look so new.

i love dots, string, and all the mixed textures here.

Old Things

A few weeks ago Clinton and I made a visit to my favorite antique store. The place is so amazing, there are two floors of vintage clothing when you walk in the door. The sections are small, but stuffed and charming. Up the creaky wooden steps is a room "grandma's closet" where there are all sorts of inexpensive treasures. The items in that room need a little extra loving care, but I have found some lovely objects. The place is just wonderful.
