Love postcards

So years ago when I had love, and believed in love, I collected vintage postcards with the theme.... LOVE!

Now they are tacked to my wall right above my bed and are a constant sad reminder of all I have lost. And it is a continual pain I feel looking at them.

I love these postcards but I cannot bear to look at them constantly. Yet I do not want to just sell them as is. I want to make something out of them. So I am thinking of laminating them and using my binding machine to make them into small journals and then posting them in the etsy shopalop!

What do you think? That is the idea that has been stuck in my head for a couple days. They are in great shape, just still tacked to me wall. I need to buy laminating sheets or learn how to use the machine at work, then just cut some cardstock down to size!

So you have any other good ideas that would work for these beauties? I have about twenty or more.

Lovely house and apartments

I love looking at interior design sites and books, in hopes someday I will have a pretty place of my own. Here are a few of my favorites!
All photos from http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/Can you say a wall of books? AMAZING

Pretty blue shutter doors would be a bright spot in every day!
Gorgeous attic room, simple, vintage painted walls.
More rooms centered around amazing bookcases.
Shutters and doors that lead ocean side.
Yellow couches!
I want this bar.
Old used brushes is a great piece.
Cool mod corner shelf.

Pretty Lil Dresses

I swear Etsy has some HOTT dresses! Might have found this in a treasury, but it is amazing. I am going to lose weight and move to a town that has a hot club atmosphere and the buy this dress. Normally pink is not my color but look at this thing!
Decadent Designs is the creator of this amazing piece, the whole shop is pretty rockin in my opinion. "specializes in custom made cocktail dresses, evening wear, corsets, bustiers, pencil skirts and PVC club wear." I am not sure what PVC Club wear is, anyone wanna tell me?

Valentines Carnival

February 14th is Valentine's Day. What is your best childhood memory of Valentine's Day?

Honestly the school parties, they were always a blast! Dressing in pinks and reds. Sweets a
nd treats. Making lil bags/boxes to hold valentines from classmates. The super cool cards and candies everyone gave!

This is my first single Valentines in six years. I honestly can say I want this holiday to be over with, just this year.... As I am a hopeless/hopeful romantic I am hoping to have some love by 2011.

Etsy Proposal???

If I ever find a man, who not only knows about etsy, but buy things there, I will marry him. Especially if he proposes using these magnets that I found on etsy Via treasury.
These are so cool, from sideproject on etsy! You can even add a name in there so it could be Beth (HEHEH) will you marry me? And if a man did this, a man I loved, I would say yes. Too bad I wouldn't have time to make some YES magnets. Or something equally as cool and arty. If you have seen my shop then you know I am all about fridge fabulous-ness.
