After enrolling in the Mary Ann Moss FULL TILT BOOGIE online class, I jumped in head first and started on yet another new "old" book.
This time, I wanted the contents of my book to be a little different from any of the others I have made in the past. You may have heard about the SMASH book craze. The smash book idea is one that struck a chord with me, as I have always collected pages and pages of lovely clippings I tear out of the millions of magazines and old discarded books I adore. I have recently become addicted to the online version of this collecting notion... PINTEREST. Have you spent some time perusing all the gorgeous images there??? Oh...it's a visual heaven... a feast for the eyes.
The veteran school teacher in me cannot turn loose completely from the awe I feel from the actual touch of "the real thing". Sooooo, I decided to take my own collection of "tear-outs" that I have held onto for so long... stuck inside many organized, labeled binders. What fun is that??? I decided to meld my cut-outs, vintage wallpapers, favorite quotes, and other yummy "goodies" from my stash. Since I call this one VELVET DAYS, I labeled each page with a tiny tag attached to a velvet remnant. My book is already getting so fat I can hardly close it, but that is so my M.O. None of my other books close, so why start now????
