Pre-P.S. Click on the pictures for a better view of what's in the jars.
Hey, I've got some readers who are asking what's in the jars on the shelves in my earlier "Shelf Project" entry. I took some photos so that you can get an idea of the sorts of doo-dads I love. I can never get photos rearranged once they're uploaded, so these are out of order, but I've included some collages I made using some of the little things I collect. The theme of this project was "Red" and I used a children's cloth alphabet book that I took apart and did lots of different backgrounds on. I did about a dozen of them. The backgrounds range from molding paste to tissue paper to lace to textured paints and all the backgrounds are painted using reds, pinks and reddish browns. I added vintage pipecleaner dolls and gave them things to hold or things to go on the walls of their little worlds. Have a lovely day, readers.

1. Oh!!!! I keep forgetting. I want to have some contests/drawings. From the names of the first 10 people who comment on any post, I will draw a winner who will receive some goodies for your artwork in the mail. I'll hand-pick some fabulous things to send your way.

2. Of the first 10 people who link to my blog from theirs, I will draw a name and you will receive an Ultra-Deluxe package of goodies for your artwork. Just send me the link to your blog when you've linked to mine and I'll add your name to the drawing. And I will, of course, add a blogroll to mine and automatically add yours!!! Yay!!!

I really enjoyed reading your introduction at the Organized group and also love your blog. Since I suffer from Fibro/CFS and arthritis, it was very interesting and enlightening to read that you have battled and won over this crippling pain!

I see I am not the only one to LOVE the idea of the glass jars as storage/art solution!
I need to wait to eat u some jam before I transform one of my jars into a sparkling universe of JUNK!

Interesting idea, storing in the jars. I might have to use that in my own studio

I collect some of my fibers in Ikea Jars too. I like the idea how even can decorate looking inside the crystal.
I NEED to be organizated as I have to share my room with my needlework stash too.
If you want you can visit next days my blog and see how is my little art corner.

And yes....I will put your blog link on mine.

Love from Spain
