When most of the world is sheltering in place during the Coronavirus Pandemic, many artists and crafters are basking in creative time. I, however, am having the opposite experience.
Because of a plethora of personal reasons, I have had little creative time. Plus, when I finally do get time to head up to the art studio, I either am too tired, or have faced a massive creative block. I need a tour guide to get me through this.
There’s a good chance you have a lot of ephemera. I do too.
However, I have it stored away in so many different places and in so many
boxes, that I often can’t find it when I am in the middle of a project.
To combat this problem, I made a desktop ephemera storage box. While it certainly can’t hold all my ephemera, I can keep it filled with different odds and ends that I can use in upcoming projects.
Keeping some of your ephemera nearby is is especially helpful for those of you who like to make junk journals and art planners. What’s more, it makes for some fun eye candy.
After two and a half loooooong months away due to an unplanned medical snafu, I am gratefully alive and finally venturing back into crafting.
Unlike the arrogant little tot featured in my project, I was much less confident about getting back to crafting. I decided to make the transition a little easier by using some of my favorite things for my first project: Gypsy Soul Lasercut’s Mini House Shadowbox, Paper Calliope’s Snarky Ancestors, 7gypsies paper and Seth Apter’s embossing powders.
