January is almost gone!


The first month of the new year flew by for me. With the new year, there is new activity for KrazyKatedesigns. New products, a revival of some that have been fun in the past and a hankering to create! Here's a pic of a new mini album listed. These sturdy albums will be a fun base for scrapbookers and altered artists alike.
On the promotional side of business, Krazykate's has new pages on Flickr, We Love Etsy, and one that needs a bit of work on Myspace. Learning is always the name of the game when it comes to computers for me. My youngest son gave me a few pointers for the myspace page.
I also joined a new street team in January that has very much impressed me and you'll be seeing more about that in the next post. Hint...... it's initials are ESST. :)

Ephemera







Finding very old paper (ephemera) is a passion of mine. Scouting antique shops, thrift shops and estates sales brings the occasional thrill of finding these historical bits of paper. Widely used in altered art, collage, and mixed media the old documents lend a dignified, nostalgic feel to art with actual history. Here's a few samples of finds that are in or were sold in my Etsy shop.
