I sell a ton of these books for art creation, lots of lovely music and illustrations to use for altered art, collage and mixed media. Even the covers are fun to use for art creations.
I know, its a book, but sadly many of these books just end up in the landfill as no one wants to read them or even collect them. So I salvage what I can, and use some myself to give another upcycle life to these books.
But I am not able to use them all so these are for sale, and at some great prices.

This is a mixed post of items.
I just created a new Asian Paper pack.
This is a fun collection of paper ephemera.
You will find an assortment of Asian Designed Joss Paper and Hell Money
*********Every Assortment is slightly different in colors or different papers************
Plus as a bonus, I will include a collage sheet of 16 vintage reproduction images of Asian women. (Thats over 40 pieces in this pack for art creations!)
Because I made a few of these packs, they are available on eBay , My Etsy shop, and of course, my website!
I sold my last Ephemera 100 pieces lot on eBay and so I made up a new lot. This is also available on E-Bay
And if you like free stuff, I just uploaded 10 new collage sheets to my Free Collage Sheets Blog. These sheets are for you to download to your computer and print and use as you like.
Thats it for this post! Have a very creative week!

Available for purchase on my website
Pkg of 4 Brass Locket Charms
These lovely little lockets are what is known as Vintage New stock - meaning that yes they are vintage, but these not used items. They will have some tarnish and age markings on them.
These hearts are fabulous to embellish your art projects and for creating vintage design jewelry and charm bracelets.
The locket opens up to hold 2 pictures. Each heart measures approx .75 inches top to bottom and side to side.
Sold in packages of 4 hearts as shown in the photo.
They have a hole in the front originally for adding/attaching embellishments on the outside.I have personally used a variety of charms or gems to cover the hole and even small cameo embellishments. See the design sample for an idea of how to use these hearts. Design samples are not included with purchase.

Well finally I was able to have some fun! I went with the gal pals to a weekend scrapbook convention.
I am not much of a "scrap booker" as such, and usually I take my altered art stuff and maybe make a few art cards or collage book pages over the weekend.
I don't often get much done, but I always enjoy the creative time with the gals, the inspiration, of course the never ending food and treats, and the opportunity to purchase mountains of new supplies that I never have time to use.
Yes I did exercise that opportunity.....
This time was no exception when it came time to getting things done.
I always have plans of grandeur and bring mountains of containers of stuff to work on and supplies enough to last an entire year of conventions.
But this time I didn't haul it all into the convention as I usually do, instead I left it all in the van and brought in only 2 containers of stuff.
I worked on my embellished keys, and had sort of a mini class with my friends and they learned how to make some of these keys for their own art creations.
Below are the few keys that I did get made, 12 in total, and I am very pleased with the results, tho had I been as home I most likely would have made about 100 keys over the 2 days. But it would never compare to the fab time I had with the gal pals.
Thanks Gerdie, Lori, Denise, and Miriel for a fabulous fun weekend!
As well thanks to all of the other scrappers there including Pam, and Marie (over 100) for a ton of inspiration and camaraderie!
Thank-you Sharon and staff for hosting this wonderful event twice per year!
I do have about 50 keys that are painted and ready to assemble so I am hoping to have those done sometime this week.
If you would like to see these close up, I have already listed the keys for sale on my website.
Since I was listing stuff today I also managed to create a new category called filigree metal embellishments and started listing my filigree pieces for sale. These are what I use to make my altered keys.
So if you are interested in creating your own embellished keys here is a tutorial I made several years ago on creating them.
I am waiting for a shipment of new filigree pieces and will be listing them as soon as they arrive.
Have a very creative week!
