I have always had a destination course for creativity. Now that I am in my "tweens" between youngster and oldster, I have landed at my true destination. Creative Art Journaling.

3 Day Weekend Stuff
I was in my art room all weekend, working on cleaning and organizing mostly. But that is OK, So I won't post any journal pages this week. I will just show you what I have acquired this weekend.
This a 60's mail and recipe sorter that looks like a book when closed, that I found at an Estate Sale this weekend. I used it to put all of my packages of Rubber Stamps in, that I didn't buy a Tim Holtz Binder for. Here are a couple of more pics of it. It doesn't close good at all now, but I can live with that.
At the same sale I found this small binder that was used for a salesman to show floor coverings to folks. It is 4 1/2 X 6 inches.
I decided it could become a small "Stash Book" for me.
So that has been fun to work on. Because it only has 2 binder rings I had to adjust my 3 hole punch so I could punch the 2 holes I needed. It is not finished yet.
Then I found out that Michael's has a new Martha Stewart Art section. So I had to go check that out of course, and I found this new fancy tape! And it was not MS but in the same aisle. Woot!
And last for this week. My good art pal, Paula Phillips, http://www.journalartistaart.com/ was published again in Somerset Studio's Apprentice Zine, so I had to have it, of course.
So that is the update on my busy life and 3 day weekend.
I am still trying to diet and exercise, but it is hard, very hard! Right now I am sitting here posting this and eating baby tomatoes out of the box! Yum! But I am reallly wanting a Cheeseburger!! Grrrr!
Next week I am off to Morro Bay right on the ocean to do an audit. YES! It is a very cool resort town! And I know where there are 2 used book stores there. I love my job!
