some new inspiration arrives

Lately it seems that I have been creating more scrapbook pages than anything else. I am not quite sure why. My stamps have just not been inspiring me lately so I though it might be time to add a few fresh ones to the mix. I had ordered some new ones from different places over the past 2 weeks and today I received 3 shipments! I was so excited to open the boxes. Here they are:

The Hot Picks were from Paper Artsy . Considering they were ordered from the UK I am surprised how quickly they arrived and they have wonderful quick customer service when I emailed with a question. The Crow Scape(turned on its side) I have seen in many magazine projects and loved it so I just had to get it. the other are some things that just appealed to me. Aren't they all lovely! I will be off to play a bit as soon as I am done with this post.

Another fab find i got this past weekend when we were going through some local antique shoppes. Lately I have such a hard time finding things in antique shoppes around her as they are normally outrageously priced but I was lucky enough to come across a stack of these Time life books from the 50's and 60's. All for just $1 each I loved some of the photos and artwork inside so I picked up a few to use in future projects.
That should do me for a bit. I still have another 2 orders of stamps on the way although not sure when they will be arriving. One order is again coming from the UK and another from the states. I am hoping that once this project for work is done I will have a bit more time to focus on my crafting. I have been so busy creating a magazine layout for the show program at work it has been taking up all my time. there are so many ads produce the artwork for and then the whole layout and it all has to be complete and to press within the next 2 weeks. Yikes! But I have decided to take a few hours to myself today to play with my new arrivals. Should help break up the monatany of  the graphics I have been doing lately.

Now I am off to grab those few precious hours to myself.   Thanks for stopping in and have a great day. Angela
