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   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 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.

I know you won't believe me because I never seem to follow through here, but I'm really gonna try this time.  I do have some new endeavors up my sleeve so please come back soon!
