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!
Headed to Hartford, CT. this morning - this time for work... back on Friday. The third time traveling in three weeks, I am looking forward to a nice long stay at home for awhile when I return. But that won't happen until after Thanksgiving, sigh!
Oh this is a bit late... but for stylewannabe who commented on a previous post, asking what I do with my layouts with flowers on them - if they don't get crushed if I put them in an album - I no longer use albums. I used to have a stack of them but I got a bit lazy and stopped using them. I have been storing my layouts in these archival boxes from the Container Store. Storage space is always an issue though! But even if you do use albums, I find most of the flowers can be reshaped if they do get a bit smushed.
In the interim, I'll leave you with this card - I am not sure whether or not I shared this one already -- if I did, forgive me ... I made it awhile ago and thought I hadn't uploaded it. Just a quick card I made for a friend with some Making Memories paper - last season. The pennants are made using a triangle shape punch. I drew the line connecting the pennants with one of those flexible bendy rulers and a black pen. I know that's not the official name for them - but I can't think of what they are called! I recall that I wanted badly to stitch that top line but evidently not badly enough to get out my sewing machine! Envy all of you who have a permanent spot for your sewing machine and having it ready to go at any minute!
Oh and here's a vintage image of a lovely lass marked 'Souvenir'. And you thought I forgot all about those, didn't you? I'll have some lovely Christmas themed greetings to share next week. Adieu, adieu, parting is such sweet sorrow...
