It started by cleaning the garage and coming across this buffet I'd forgotten about. After our kitchen remodel, I'd stashed it out there and it was buried under a pile of stuff my son was storing. I don't know why I didn't move it into the studio in the first place instead of leaving it to the spiders and dust in the garage for 9 months, its perfect in my work space.
The hutch had been sitting on a table previously. I switched the two out, then returned the hutch and all the stuff in it. The table is now in the garage with the spiders and I have an empty cabinet waiting to be filled up with more crap from garage sales treasures.(so I can lose them in the chaos too, like the art journals and the buffet. Who loses a buffet anyway? Does that mean I have waaaayyy too much junk?)
Back to the journals... I found a couple of them, and they are now listed in the Boutique.
So I made up a couple of tag books and listed those too. And listed those in the Boutique under the Altered Books category, which had been empty for quite a while.
This art journal is in there now too, its a recent creation and was made from Beth's stash of goods, not mine.
I was at her house for craft day and was at a loss for a project.
She handed me a chipboard book and a box of paper and I did the basic pages for this, then embellished it when I got home.
(I have another project to show you from her stash too. I'll post it later this week. It was done with just what I could reach from my chair and not have to get up. I have to say, I could have gone on for years with this and not made a dent in the supply!)
Slowly but surely, I'll be filling the Boutique back up, and maybe, just maybe, I'll tend to the poor little neglected Etsy shop too.
But maybe not, I'm going out of town again this week.
Hopefully, I'll get more in the shop before I go. All purchases after Tuesday will be mailed when I get back.
Leave a comment on any (or all posts) and I'll draw a name after I get back, probably on Sat. the 16th.
