Etsy Open Again!

I dusted off my blog a couple of weeks ago and now I've dusted off my Etsy shop too!

For now, I am focusing on FINALLY selling off my collection of antique photos, ephemera, and postcards that I've accumulated over the years while putting together digital image kits for MischiefCircus.com.   I've been promising my husband I would do this for years.

I'm selling everything for less than I paid for it since I've gotten so much use out of each and every piece.  I've scanned them all in and built up my library of images to use in my own artwork, which was the whole reason I started the digital design kits.  If you're familiar with my kits, you'll see some familiar images in my shop.  For example, the postcard on the left became the head for the body on the right . . .

Anyway, if you love to collect vintage and antique images, be sure to stop by my Etsy.  I'll be adding new stuff every week.  I have thousands of items that will eventually find its way into the shop.

Eventually, I'll be adding my own artwork in here and there and some other surprises!

Dusting off this ol' blog . . .

. . . to tell you some important news!

You may remember that I retired from kit designing a year ago.  After about 6 months, I missed the routine and structure of extracting images and building kits so I came back to it.  Well, it didn't take but a couple of months to realize I needed a longer break from it.  I have not done a whole lot of kit making this year and didn't get much anything else done for always feeling like I should have been making kits.

So, I am retiring again.  And this time, I predict it will be for a good long while.  I'd say I may never come back to it but you're never supposed to say never.  For now, I wanted to be sure and let you know everything in my shoppe is 50% off until September 17.  This really may be the last time you ever see the kits again.

You can find them HERE for now!

I'm already enjoying my retirement a bit!  I got to play on 3 other Creative Teams last week.  The designers at MischiefCircus.com have a new Monthly Mischief kit out . . . Muse!  Below you'll find little samples I made from Holliewood Studios', Itkupilli's, and Songbirdy's Muse kits.   You can find them all HERE.

Catching Up - New kits!

Hello my friends!  I have been using Facebook soooooo much, I totally forget about the blog sometimes.  I'm gonna work on that and get this page more "going".

In the meantime, I've released several new kits since my last post.   The newest is at the top.  All can be found in my shoppe HERE at MischiefCircus.com.  AND, I have ANOTHER new kit coming out next week so stay tuned!

Mixed Parts
10 printable jpg collage sheets included!
This kit is a mix of brand new images and revamped images from 2 older kits (Miscellany and Whatnot No. 1).  It is a GREAT VALUE whether you own the older kits or not as the reused images have been spruced up and are all ready for new projects!

It's the first in a series of kits that will include mostly new images but several spruced up images from some older retired kits. (I have some good images in those old kits that just needed a little tweaking) This new kit is a great value because it includes over 100 new images and around 40 remodeled images.

Monthly Mischief kits - Renew
Monthly Mischief is a collection of kits and packs all designed to work together, a collaboration with many designers at MischiefCircus.com using a new theme each month. This month the theme was Renew though I think I focused a little more on the color palette than anything else.  I have 2 kits in this month's collaboration:  Renew and Renew 2.

New OLD She-nan-i-gans

It wasn't too many months into my "retirement" that I knew it wouldn't last.  Making digital image kits had become more important to me than I realized.  It wasn't just a practical undertaking but one that gave my energy some place to focus.

My shoppe at MischiefCircus.com will be re-opening February 6th with 24 returning kits and 2 BRAND NEW kits for collage, art journaling, and mixed media work.

My Etsy shop will continue to grow with art prints, funky baubles, and antique treasures.  Stay tuned!

Happy Day!

Hello!  I've been working really hard to get set up so I can start making a whole big bunch of NEW Tumble Fish stuff:  lots of handmade art items, new collage sheets, and more!  I've needed to really clean out, gather up, and get myself organized.

But, I took a little break from all of that to participate in a couple of fun challenges in the MischiefCircus.com forum where they are celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day with a big sale, games, challenges, and prizes!   I loaded up on some Crowabout StudioB and Itkupilli kits because I really needed a break from my own images to get some new creative perspective (and their kits are totally awesome!).

You can find the challenges in the forum HERE

One last reminder!

This is not good-bye!
This is the last day of my retirement sale at MischiefCircus.com.  I don't want you to miss out on the incredible sale and the last chance to grab these kits.  The picture below is linked right to my shoppe so just click on it.

I don't know what's next but I am going to be busier than ever.  Keep your eye out for new things coming your way soon.  And you never know, sometime down the road I may be designing at Mischief Circus again (with all new stuff).  I don't know that, but never say never!  Maybe I'll be a guest designer there now and then.  Either way, I'll always be a die hard Mischief Circus fan and participating as a customer and friend in lots of the creative magic that happens there so expect to see more Mischief Circus news in the future.
