This past month . . .

has been a bit crazy.

We've been on the road a lot and barely home.

So my real work has been sitting idle

and my

"playing" has increased.

I'm totally in love with junk journal file folders

in the style of

Robin Dudley Howes.

Each one of these opens and has room for inserts

and is filled with ephemera.

My latest obsession.

Now I need to find out how to organize all the little ephemera

that goes along with junk journals.

Suggestions greatly appreciated.

 


A darling gem in Stillwater MN . . .

Bud Weiser and I were able to take some time off and travel to the wonderful town of 

Stillwater MN.

Of course I looked for an independently owned craft store and found

Rose Mille.

Wow! What an amazing store.

It's chock full of wonderful finds

perfect for projects of any kind and a junk journalers (is this a word?) dream.

Take a look:

I was only able to stay a few minutes because 

Mr. Bud Weiser was with me and we were on another mission,

but I will definitely be back.

Ribbons galore including strips of silk velvet,

Victorian scrapbook pages,

glass glitter (the real thing!)

millinery items like tiny flowers and such,

and this room (above) that is filled with

German Scrap Paper.

Be still my heart! I've never seen so much in one spot. 

I picked up a couple of things

and then had some more things shipped from their amazing online site:

Rose Mille online shopping.

This quintessential store is open Friday & Saturday only,

but they will process orders Monday thru Friday.
