More Finds

I ended my last post with a couple of flea market finds…I thought I would share some more of my wonderful probably don’t need but couldn’t pass up such a great buy and will find a place or use for them someday…or because they just made me happy!

I am always looking for containers to use in my craft room. Mainly glass ones, mostly with lids but not always. Here are some of the latest I bought…I figured if I couldn’t use them in my craft room then I could always put some nice candy or even crafty goodness in them for a gift.

I also found this clear plastic container of buttons!

I love buttons and it always makes me happy to receive buttons as a gift in a swap or a RAK…or when I come across some at a flea market, 2nd hand store or junk store…and if they are old then I am double happy! I saw these and really just wanted them for the large buttons. I was surprised when I brought them home and dumped the container out on my table to also find an old pocket watch and the old wood thread spool. Not, to mention all of the other little things thrown in.

I have been busy the last couple of days trying to get my craftroom re-arranged and organized.  I probably should have waited till after the Holidays but since I don't plan on having anything at my house I don't suppose it matters.  I do have several things I want to make for gifts so maybe this will get me more in the mood to do so.  Since I am doing this now I can hopefully start off the new year with a more organized and not so cramped room.  I still have lots to do and I am hoping to talk my wonderful hubby into putting me shelf in the closet.  I will post pictures when it's further along...
Before I leave I will share a card I made for the annual Squirrel Awareness Week last month for my friend Rita…You can read more about it at my past post here

I bought this stamp set just for this purpose but it is also just a great fall stamp set.  Here  is the outside of the card  using a stamp and sentiment from the same set:

I also did the inside of it with a another stamp from the same set sentiment is done on the computer.  I did the coloring with copic markers which I am still learning to use but loving it. 

That's all for now...need to get back into the craftroom before it's time to finish up supper..I have some beef cooking on top of the stove to add some noodles to later...Smells wonderful!

Thanks for visiting my blog!  :)
