I am a self-proclaimed lover of vintage. I have been in the antiques business for 22 years to feed my passion for going to yard sales, auctions, flea markets, thrift shops, estate sales, etc. During this time I became enthralled with mixed media and junk journals. These two passions fit perfectly with my love of “junking” and vintage. I also dabble in watercolors, altered art and paper crafts.
I have a booth in an antiques mall and an online Etsy shop. Several times a year I also do shows that feature vintage items, my artwork and paper crafts, and vintage craft supplies. The addresses and information on these venues can be found on my locations and upcoming events pages.
My aim for glitteronmyface is to show some of my current projects and inspire others to play along!
Just read your post “I’m Not Buying It ! “, I felt like I was looking at pictures of my craft room ! I so thought I was the only hoarder of things like this. But I find myself spending so much time trying to organize it all ,that I’m left with no time or energy to actually MAKE anything. Any suggestions ? I love all your ideas! Linda
Linda, I am going through all my old books that I am keeping just for their graphics and cutting out the pictures I want. I am sorting them by category and putting them in accordion folders.The covers, if they are the right size, will be cut off and stored separately. The other covers and pages I don’t want are getting put in the recycling bin. I have not been watching any craft “haul” videos and I am staying away from Tuesday Morning which is where I get most of my craft supplies. I’m also not allowing myself any additional books into my studio. I hope that helps a little. It does feel good to use the supplies that I already have on hand and I have been inspired to create again. It will take me a long time to even make a dent in what I have, but my wallet is happier!
