BIG Score on Ebay

I must say that I miss the regular Wednesday post I used to do called "What's In My Drawers?" I think I will start doing this as a regular feature so you can see the mayhem and chaos that is on my worktable. I couldn't wait to post this until next Wednesday so you get an early peek at what I am doing.

I just won an auction on eBay of a box of clock parts and I think I really, really scored big. I spent about 3 hours last night happily tearing all of them apart so I could get a new collection of gears and other assorted parts. Not bad for $43.00 including shipping huh?

You also get another peek at something I have been working on here and there since last month. Remember that canvas I did a rusty paper tutorial on for the Gingersnap Creations blog? I have the second canvas almost finished and you can see in the above photo that I just coated the rusty part with a sealer. (That's the milky looking part that hasn't quite dried yet.) Well I have a few ideas for the niches in the back, one of which included the clock case that you see in the above photo. I though it was cool that it looked like a clock that has the chains on it that you pull to wind it up and it fits perfectly in the niche.

Don't Forget.....

Tomorrow I am changing my blog to NOT accepting anonymous followers so if you are one right now you need to change your status to remain a follower. Sorry that I have to do this but I am tired of dealing with all the spam that is sent to the comments section every day.

Before you know it, it will be time for Halloween. I figured I might as well get a head start.

Cruise Journal (Take 2)

Click on the picture to see a larger view.
Yeah... I know I supposedly already made a journal to take on the Tim Holtz cruise but I found that when I started to place my ATC'c, to trade with others, in it that the binding was not wide enough to let it close when it was full. So rather then remake the cover with a wider binding I decided to make a whole new journal. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could come up with one that was a steampunk theme. Everyone please let me know if I succeeded.

This time I decided to try something a little different when writing down all the details for you. I added them to the borders of each photo so that you can see exactly what I am talking about without having to flip back and forth between the photo and the blog post. (There are a lot of photos but now I don't have to do a lot of writing on the blog post.)
