Also, our upstairs is now open. We have some new items from some of our consigners and also more pieces that we have made/altered.

What in the world is Steampunk?  In the past couple of years I’ve been coming across some very interesting artwork and designs that seem to draw me in if for no other reason than curiosity. Whimsical hot air balloons and old gears and machines intertwined with Victorian lace and roses that is somehow futuristic and antique at the same time, and is definitely imaginative. It draws in the part of me that likes science-fiction and fantasy for its creativeness, and the part of me that likes Victorian design for its elaborate beauty. And while some of it is a little too weird for me J, I love Graphic 45’s “Steampunk Debutante” paper pack. And we have already made some fun things with it!

For more ideas on just about anything crafty, Lizzy Kartchner writes a great blog called “Dear Lizzy” and it’s our featured blog for this month. She also has a wonderful book out with Scrapbooking ideas that we are currently carrying in our shop. Check out her blog here:
Hope that you are having an awesome summer filled with fun and relaxation!
