Hey Cats and Kittens, I just opened a brand new box of paper from my favorite vendor, Graphic 45! My store Scrapping Lounge in Montclair, CA is the place to be when it comes to FABULOUS goodies that us paper crafters all love! This is G45's new Pre CHA (Craft Hobby Assoc,) release. Yummy, yummy Gang! We have the lines: A Proper Gentleman, On the Boardwalk and Le' Romantique ~ Just got them on the shelves mere moments ago; so swing on by and check em out! Love it!
While trying to get home last night from work, I had to detour and take side roads for a bit. Being stuck in rainy, after-work, slow-moving traffic is NOT what I wanted to be in. Taking full advantage of my surroundings and situation, I remembered my camera in my purse and was able to snap-off these quick shots. (thanks to the stop sign ahead, I had time to do this safely!) What an amazing sight; made me sit back and relax and not worry so much about getting home quickly. Remember Cats & Kittens: "Happiness is found in the journey, not the destination." ~Unknown~

I've been at it again! I was so inspired recently by trying to reuse, recycle and repurpose, that I just had to complete this project! There are so many old, old LP's out there that are beyond being collected, or even played. The LP's that I selected were not on any collector's list (wouldn't that suck!) Also, they were scratched and past their useful prime. I saw this process done and thought it was must do for me. After making a sample for myself, I decided to make some "Mail~Magazine Racks" to sell at my store, Scrapping Lounge! I've made varieties ranging from a "single" up to a 4-stack of "wax" rack! While being very hip and cool with all of the "in" retro stuff, they're actually functional! I have a "single" in my office holding mail, and a "3-stack" by my copier with other paper items. Very cool Gang! So Swing on by the Lounge soon to check out these Vinyl Wonders for yourself!
