Since it's too crowded and noisy outside my front door (and backdoor, too), indoor activities are in order for today. A few weeks ago, I purchased a box of binders from Office Depot with the thought of arranging all of the magazine clippings I've had for at least the past 20 years. While going through some of these, it's sparked new ideas and projects. The process of arranging all of this paper is a bit overwhelming, so I've taken it in small doses. The paper lining the spines of the binders is from Amy Butler's paper collection.
I've been asked by more than a few people if the picture on my blog header is my mantel. Yes...last Sunday morning I went out to cut some more hydrangea and I arranged it in the aluminum tumblers--inspired by a photo on Vintage Indie. The mantel seemed to be a logical place to display all of those flowers, and I wanted a fresh, clean look.
Heartened by many positive comments, I did list my earrings on Etsy. Later this afternoon I plan on making some other styles. I've been collecting beads and findings for quite a while...along with collecting lots of other stuff! It's now time to use it or move it on out...something I'm not really inclined to do.
