a momentary addiction / obsession

So, somehow
I ended up making an altered Rolodex card for someone.  I pulled the blank card from my sad and abandoned rotary Rolodex holder.

 Instead of the few old business cards and contacts from the past (that were never transferred to the PDA, then the Computer and now the Smart Phone),

I imagined it filled with 
beautiful little works of art and inspiration !

I knew it would be a process to fill it up 
but though it might be a fun way to be constantly inspired by art on my desk.
So, I've started creating and swapping them!
Here are a few of my more recent pieces. As usual, I remember to take pictures of about half of the pieces that get packages and go out the door.

a few for an ongoing alphabet series:
       D for Down under
C for cello
                   E for eaves

I have about a dozen in my file now. It's going to take more than that to make it look even a little filled but it will be a fun, ongoing project. Even the Grandson Dylan made me one when he was over to spend the night!

Oh No!

"Put the glue stick down, 
and step away from the paper"

So, I just can't stop making paper "things". I'm not sure why. I do know that I have enough ephemera and paper bits that I could continue making those "things" every day for the rest of my life.

What I really need to do is keep making new assemblage jewelry and listing it in my etsy shop. In fact, I need to list in ALL of my etsy shops. But the paper. It calls my name from across the room.

Meanwhile, here is a small portion of my current paper obsession.
