DID NOT TAKE LONG TO MAKE A MESS & THINGS CREATED

Well, it didn't take me to long to make a mess after my studio was all picked up, prettied up and neat as a pin for the "Where Bloggers Create" party.  You can visit my studio here
I did have several boxes of paper and old packets of vintage ephemera that I had listed in Etsy some time ago stashed under the work tables.
 Well....I finally decided to go through these boxes and put it all away, this task took me a few days.
Do you have these boxes lingering around??
Well...I couldn't just go through the new found stuff and not create something with it all.
I decided to make good use of both my task and my desire, so I decided to make some tags/collage pieces and have them ready for gifts, gifts for my swap partners, etc.
 I discovered copies of old Farmer's Almanack I picked up at our local library. 
I used the front covers as the background for several of the tags/collage piece I created.
What fun I had!!!
Yup, my studio is still a complete mess.









Notice this is a vintage index card.





A very antique book spine.



I really did find some goodies in those boxes.





I found several copies of images of cabinet cards in my collection.
I am one that saves every scrap of paper.

Pieces of vintage wall paper.

Another index card.  I think these make for great tags, nice and sturdy (at least the vintage ones are).
I am so pleased to have finally cleaned up these boxes, job well done!!
I am happy to have a bunch of created items ready to use.
Thanks for stopping by.
