Well hello there! I did a little cleaning and organizing of my workspace tonight and took a photo to add to my Shape What’s to Come profile and I figure I would share the photo with you guys here! This space is where I do pretty much everything: sewing, crafting, letter writing, computering, drawing and zine making. Though most of the time I’m blogging in bed, NOT sitting at a desk.
As you can see, I like clutter! I feel the most creative when I’m surrounded by objects I love and paper/fabric scraps. I picked up a little though, so that you wouldn’t think I was a slob!
The vintage typewriter was a gift from an old friend and I love it so much! I try to use it as often as possible but it needs new ribbon. I’ll have to get on that! This is the entirety of my CD collection. I really DO NOT like CD’s at all and most of these are the remnants of what I collected while I worked at the Virgin Megastore in Columbus, OH before it closed. They are mostly promo copies. I sold the majority of what I had about 2 years ago to make room for all my albums! Yes, vinyl. I am a vinyl lover and collector – one day I will share my vinyl collection with you! (oh do I feel the spark of a new blog feature idea coming on?)
You probably can’t tell from this image but I have all sorts of photos and fortunes and cards and such tacked up all over the place. I love collecting ephemera! It’s definitely a passion of mine. Which brings me to another reason for this post – I have FINALLY started my Etsy store – Wild Weeds & Dirty Hair! I spent my evening compiling and photographing (poorly – but to the best of my ability) hand assembled Vintage Ephemera Packets. They can be used for ATC’s or scrapbooking or if you’re like me, you could use them for collage art or zine making. I spent a lot of time really curating what would go into these small packets so please take a look at what I came up with!
I had a lot of fun putting these together and it finally gave me a reason to pick up my workspace. It’s pretty much been a disaster since my working on my Heidi Braid Headband. Yay for productivity! Yay for new adventures!
