I Need More Time!!!....

Why can't we have an extra 10 or 15 hours in each day? I need that much just to keep up with all the fun things going on around Blogland. Today I'm going to the big box hardware stores to pick up some FREE art supplies! Yes, free journal making stuff! If you're curious check out this blog post and see what I'm talking about.

Then I'm off to one of the office supply stores to get more art supplies....I'm looking for a Rolodex! You may be too young to know what that is but if you check out Patty Van Dorin's blog you'll see what she does with these little cards. Take a scroll through her blog and be amazed at how a lowly little card can be transformed into beautiful works of art.

No wonder my brain is always spinning! There's so much to see and do and not enough time for all of it. YIKES!!!!
Here is my index card for today....

Another five minute collage. 
I used a bit of painted paper, 
some other scraps from my paper box 
and words cut from a magazine. Voila!!

And I made three more tags....

These aren't really pretty....just functional.
My brain was tired when I made these!

I haven't added any fibers to the tags yet but I will. I have to locate all my little snippets of ribbon and yarn and see what I have. The past couple of days all I've wanted to do is simple little projects like these. My scrap paper box is overflowing and I need to either use it or get rid of it. 

I'm off to run some errands and get my Rolodex. I hope I don't melt! It's hot again today.
