Up, Up & Away : Vintage Hot Air Balloons

I just love these new Vintage Hot Air Balloon images I got the other day!  These illustrations are from the the mid 1700s to early 1800s.  Personally my favorites has to be #022 & #051, mainly because they give that steampunk feel that I really like.  Gotta love steampunk! <3

New Sheets on the way!


I have been very busy working on my "to do" list this past week. I am happy to see that I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I am also happy to say in between those request, I have been re-working my older collage sheets along with making new ones.
My new collage sheets will cater more to the altered & mixed media artist, as these are atc backgrounds & "typewriter" words.
What a peek? Sure!
Collage Sheet #005












I will be listing this collage sheet along with the others I have designed Monday morning.  So be watching.

Like I stated above, I have also been re-working a few of my older collage sheets.  With what I have learned these past few years,  I have a few sheets that have what lacks to be desired.

Here are the ones that I have re-worked:

Collage Sheet #010













Collage Sheet #043













Collage Sheet #048














Now I must get back to work!  Busy Busy Busy is Me.

I found it!!

I found it!  I was beginning to get a bit worried!  What am I talking about?  Well I had all of my Calico Collage Work backed up on my external hard drive.  For some reason the cords that connect to the power & computer was not kept with it, so for the past 2 days I have been trying to find it. I can probably say that I looked worse than A chicken with it's head cut off... LOL
Thank goodness last night was my lucky night.  So now I have all of my things to start building collage sheets again!  YA!  Be watching.

With that out of the way, I was browsing the treasury listing from CraftCult & I saw one of the prettiest treasuries made that included one of my collage sheets.



That's it for now.
Thanks for readying & Stay Crafty!

Still Moving In

As I stated in my last blog post we have arrived in California.  We finally got into our house here in Seaside.  I am surrounded around boxes on top of boxes!!  This is one of those days that I wish I was a Jeanie & I could just wiggle my nose & everything would be unpacked and in it's place.... one can wish.

My computer is unpacked & since I am making this post our internet is up and running as well.  At night I will be starting on my LONG To Do list.  If you have contacted me about a special collage sheet, please know that I have not forgotten about you & that you will be getting your special order to you with in the week.

My Husband & Oldest Son, Monterey, CA
We are enjoying the sites and sounds of Monterey, which is only 10min from SeaSide.  Yesterday we went to "Lover's Point".  It was such a delight seeing the waves crashing in, the seagulls, the seals, the passer bys.  This is such a new experience for this country girl & I have to say I'm loving it.



As for Calico Collage news, I have signed up with www.shabbylaneshops.com. You can see my "shop" on the front page.  This is such a great place for all sorts of Gifts & Goodies for everyone.   Make sure to check it out!

Thats it for now.
Thanks for reading & stay crafty!
