I've just about run out of "new" postcards so found these on flickr....I personally really enjoy these vintage Victorian real life postcards..the person who posted them says she found an entire collection in a old trunk and has lovingly restored them,,,she says to use them in any art or creation you would like, just don't sell them on a CD....
here is another one...
If you'd like to see more of her collection, her name on Flickr is Lisa Kettel and here is her photostream ...she's a very talented altered art artist and has tons and tons of things to enjoy....her photos, altered art, and postcards.....
I am really intriqued by altered art and marvel at the imagination of the artists.....tempted to try some just for fun. I don't think I could ever be as good but its fun to spread your wings and try new things... I am especially drawn to altered books...have a few very old ones that my grandma gave me but don't want to use them....I think after the holidays, I might moisy over to the local thrift shop and see what I can find...they sell their books for just a few cents so wouldn't be losing much if I mess up (which is likely).
Trying to finish up everything this weekend before the big day....debating what to serve for Christmas and also have one present yet to get....I was able to get most all of the ingredients for some sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, fudge and divinity...so after today, I will be in the kitchen for while.....Matt wants to help so that will be fun.
We are still not doing as well financially as we would wish but have our heads above the water and are treading like crazy...much better than last year...starting a new business is expensive and we have to dig out of the hole which will take time. We have so much to be thankful for.
