thrifty finds & new art journal...

creative art journal creative journal page creative journaling doodle book Journal Pages Personal photography thrift store fabric finds thrift store finds

I detoured to a couple local Seattle thrift stores after dropping Arlin off at pre-school. Seems like I get this itch quite often to wander through the isles brainstorming new projects and hoping to score some hidden treasure. I'm pretty disciplined, I never spend more than $10 dollars on any thrift store outing....unless it's a sewing machine...then I might splurge. But that takes time...cause I always have to find a power source and plug it in and scope it inside and out. Most of the time, you can be guaranteed the sewing machines you see in thrift stores are missing...
