Another Busy Weekend

Joy is......Friends and Sales

This was another busy busy weekend. On Friday I went to a friend's Fall Garage Sale. She and her husband have a sale in the spring and another in the fall each year. She is an artist that does alot of collage and card making. So she has the best journaling things for sale. And I was able to get friend's, Eva and Lotus there so they could meet. I bought quite a few old paper bundles, old cabinet cards, etc. But this is the best thing I bought:

It is a Book Shelf. Hee! Here's a different view:

I know that this is not the best photo, but I couldn't resist in showing you what this really is. Someone actually cut the books down and glued them into this frame and added 3 little pegs on the bottom to hang stuff. This is the best!! I love it, and plan on trying it myself someday.

I also bought a cool Alice in Wonderland hardcover book, that I didn't show you last weekend:

This has a ton of colored sketches in it, suitable for framing. Cool book.

Next is another book:

This is a new book called 1000 Steampunk Creations. And my good friend, Lotus at created a Steampunk Doll for this book and it was accepted to be included in the book. Here's how it looks in the book on page 85:

Amazing work. And she autographed the page for me:) Check out Lotus' Blog and see more of her amazing creations.

I also bought some new 7 Gypsies paper packs:

I love the maps, and each sheet is 2 sided with maps on both sides. Score!!

All in all another very busy weekend, that was fun. But I still did not get my treadmill unloaded so I can walk away my ailments. Ah, maybe next weekend. Have a creative week everyone.

I love the book shelf. Whoever thought of that is a genious! I'm going to be on the lookout for those paper packs by 7 Gypsies. They look super cool. I'm also glad you got Lotus and Eva together. I will have to congratulate Lotus on her doll.
