An interesting find, and reminder...






SO I was thinking about stuff... life stuff.. money stuff... some pretty stuff. The stuff that makes us happy with little joys. And I was also thinking about, that grey stuff in our brains. And how we can find creative ways to use it. I think one of the really fun things about creatives is that if they really want something, they go after it, just plain make it, or find some time or little nit ch to place it and save it.
So anyways... Your wondering where I am going with this right? In these days, with finances a little tighter, it might be a little bit more difficult to get all the pretty stuff we so want, so we find ways. I think that's why I am such a HUGE fan of renegade crafts, creative makers, creative thinkers, thriftys and etsy esp.

The other day, oddly enough (now... do not laugh... well go ahead, I know, they are funny) my mom mailed me this big box of paper dolls and ha! "Clothes" I would make for hours on end when I was 9 years old. At this time we did not have very much money at all, and there were all these fashion dolls, and clothes that I wanted REALLY REALLY bad. But, it wasn't happening. So, I would just sit in my little "studio" and make and draw all the things I wanted (ha! check out that dress), the time and actual process of making something satisfied that craving pretty well. And probably kept my mom happy that I was busy for so long. But.. I think as an adult, well I know. It's easy to forget those things, how the "little things" can make you happy. How, maybe by getting a little bit more simple, makes us a little bit richer.

So.. in closing, here's some of the funny little drawings I did (when I was NINE folks! Hee hee ; ) And a bunch of sweet little vintage buttons and charms I found at the thrift store the other day (9 all in a little baggie!) for a $1.20!! It made me happy. And we will see... where they go, or what can be done with these little treasures. Maybe a sweet necklace, maybe a couple for friends... but they were fun to find.
Happy weekend!! Go be creative you people you...

Wow, pretty impressive. I remember playing with paper dolls on vacations when I was a kid. You had a great fashion sense even back then :)
