Recycled Music Envelopes

Good evening yall! I'm so excited--I got a box full of goodies in the mail today. Jason thinks it's a box full of junk, but what does he really know? I wanted some old maps, music, cookbooks, etc to make envelopes out of. Here's my first batch of envelopes.

These were a lot of fun & I think they turned out great. I have lots more to make. I'm pretty excited about the mini envelopes I'm gonna make out of an old cookbook too. Oh yeah, the details on these. These were made from the 1944 music of I'll Walk Alone (lyrics by Sammy Cahn & music by Jule Styne, as sung by Dinah Shore in the Universal Picture "Follow the Boys").

Home Sweet Home plate

Hey yall. Sorry it's been a whole month. I've made a few things lately, but I guess nothing that noteworthy. I did make a really cool plate tonight. Here's a bunch of pictures I took trying to get a good one. Etching just doesn't photograph well for me.

Aunt Pat & I found these 8 inch salad plates on clearance at Wal-Mart last week for 75 cents each. I plan on putting a nativity scene on some of them, then putting homemade goodies on them for teacher gifts. Of course I really hope once I list this plate on Etsy that I sell so many of them I don't have any left for teacher gifts. I would gladly go find something else for the teachers. Anyway, gotta get this posted on Etsy now. Have a great evening!
