Sometimes, I go to start a layout or project, and I get distracted. This time, I got distracted by my little box (which I altered with some October Afternoon! HEEE!) of favorite embellishments...
It sits next to my pens, so it's right in front of my eyes all the time. Every once and a while, I like to fish through it. It's like a treasure hunt! Favorite buttons, tags, flowers, vintage stuff. I LOVE this little box.
So... I'm going through this, and I'm like, "I need to USE some of this cute stuff! I can't just have it SITTING here! I want to LOOK at it." So... I decided to grab a bunch of it, and glue the stuff to my embellishment drawers... LOL...
Okay, I know... that looks so random and hodge podge, but I love it. Makes me so happy. All these favorite things I've had *sitting* where I couldn't see them. And now I can! Yay! :-) The "28" may seem random, but it's my favorite number... and my age right now. :-)
And here are some bookmarks I threw together the other day.
I realized that I had been using my stylist's business cards along with magazine offer cards as bookmarks. So I got out my Studio Calico stamps (and bits from my favorite embellishment box) and had some FUN! I love how they turned out. :-)
Do you ever hoard a bunch of embellishments? (I KNOW you do!!) I've discovered that I need these types of favorites to go on decor and/or altering projects, so they can be enjoyed "properly"! LOL.
