I've come to reconsider where I stand on the whole copyright issue, in regards to work that appears on my blog. If you happen to see art that I've created on this blog and it inspires you, by all means go ahead and appropriate it. If you want to modify it, scraplift it, use only parts of it or copy it outright, you have my permission to do so here. If you want to give me credit, fine. If you don't, that's okay too. I've been inspired by countless other people in all walks of life and I believe that generosity of spirit is much greater than any personal pride or glory I could achieve from claiming to be the first or the best to do anything. The sole exception to this would be photos of my family, to protect their privacy.
The vintage images that appear in this blog are digitally altered and colored by scrapologie. Feel free to use them for your personal use, however you like!
Thank you for all those comments, I really appreciate your advice and encouragement. It's good to know that I am not alone! Jan was right on with her comment - this, too, shall pass, and I need to retain that as my credo. Today was a much better day. Bob said he shudders to think what will happen when Alekha arrives at the point of womanhood, where she and I are both PMSing at the same time, lol. He may have to get out of the house, for a few days.
I have another card to share today - featuring more terrific new Melissa Frances product, and three vintage easter images to make up for the past few weeks when I've missed out on posting due to the crazy pace at work.
This card is actually a birthday card for a dear friend. To create this, I used Bazzill embossed dotted cardstock, some paper from the Fresh Twist Collection, Tim Holtz ink in vintage photo, eyelet lace, a Fresh Twist Label Die Cut (the scalloped circle containing the paper dolls), Martha Stewart clear glitter, rubons from Melissa Frances, a sticker and diecut from Melissa Frances, Maya Road mega ric rac, a yellow button and twine. The paper doll stickers are also a Melissa Frances product. The kraft card background is from World Win Papers.
This one is an older project - I can't remember if I ever posted it here or not - again, all Melissa Frances product with the exception of the papier mache box and base.
Here are some lovely Easter images, enjoy and have a great weekend!
Hope your Monday is going well so far. A few things I wanted to mention - Doris is teaching a fab new class beginning Tuesday. You can read all about it here. Make sure you go get signed up for it as she is such a talented scrapper and I know you will benefit so much from the class!
Saw Coraline over the weekend with Alekha. Definitely a creepy movie and I am surprised she wasn't as creeped out by it as I was - in retrospect I probably wouldn't take her to that now, having seen the movie but the visuals are fantastic - it's not just for kids. Also puts buttons in a rather creepy light, but all in all I enjoyed it. Neil Gaiman is a very talented author and I have read a few books of his - don't read them when you're home alone though!
I am headed to a dentist appointment this morning but I do have the day off, so maybe I'll be able to get back here and get some more vintage images uploaded. In the meantime, enjoy these:
