Photo Overload

I've been reluctant to scan/take photos recently so I bit the bullet today and have an overload of photos to share. Some of this has been waiting for it's photo session for a while.

I went thrifting this weekend. I haven't been out for a while and it was a successful day, lots of art/collage stuff and a dresser. You can see what I found starting here. Oh, I also picked up a few balls of some New Zealand 100% wool, enough to knit a pair of socks!

I was cutting some images out of an old 1930's Etude magazine and a few old children's books last weekend and saved the scraps. So I used the magazine scraps to collage some cardstock and then swiped with distress inks to make backgrounds for ATC's.

With the scraps from the children's books I made 1x1s. These were very different to make than what I usually do, but I love to recycle my scraps as much as I can before throwing them away.

I have a bad habit of forgetting to scan decos before sending them off. Here are some I've done in the last month. Click on pictures for larger view.

And I've been back at the Altered Calendar. Here is the January spread which I've done in a red and white theme. Again photo is not the best.

Whew! I'd better try to take photos more often! Comments welcome!
