A Creative Mess....
my craft corner is one complete mess right now....its the only way i can create though as for me its 'out of sight out of mind'
i try so hard to have things set up in a certain way but when im making stuff, paper and ephemera scrap are lying around in such a state for days...its embarrassing if someone suddenly drops by and it drives Andrew nuts haha... but if I pack things away i tend to lose that creative energy!
Im almost finished my 'Vintage Prom' itty bitty page swap ...this time i made two small collages ( itty bitty small) and then had them printed but that was a complete disaster as they didn't print the correct size...sigh!!! i should have just made original ones....
this is the front
and the back - getting ready for the big night!
We call them 'Formals' here in Australia and I must say they are a low key function compared to the ones we see on American movies and TV shows....well they were in my time...now days they are forking out big bucks for designer gowns, car hire and professional hair & makeup....
I'll leave you with some fun 'Vintage Prom' Americana images found via google
