paper to play with

I’m back in my flat after four weeks away.  First I was working in Bangladesh and when I returned the plumber was working on my flat – the bath was out but the new shower not in.  So I’ve been visiting with my parents and sister.  Yesterday the shower was completed so I am back in my flat and the renovation enters the last big push.

All of this means that I have had time to properly explore a package that arrived while I was away.  A fabulous collection of paper ephemera that I won from Gallo Organico.   I know that I am going to have a lot of fun playing with these pieces. I love the art journal pages that Rinda often shares and the way that she uses a wide range of interesting found items on these pages.

As well as the creative potential, several pieces sparked memories.  One of the items was library catalogue cards with a hole at the bottom that would have fitted onto a rod that run the length of the catalogue drawer – they brought back many memories of searching through the card catalogues when I was a student. 

Thanks Rinda for the trip down memory lane and the fun I will have using them on various creations.

Yea! So glad they arrived safely. And I hoped you would like the "Americana" feel of them.

..And the thought of them brings back memories for me of actually having to file the cards away! There is a trick to unlatching the rod so you can feed more cards on.

It looks like a gorgeous collection of bits.
