Hurricane Isaac

I'm currently weathering my first hurricane! Hurricane Isaac has been kind to us so far. It's rainy and windy, but we're fine, and since our power is still on, I'm spending my day off work reading, editing photos, and browsing Etsy! I made this treasury to commemorate my Isaac experience. :)

collage creations

My dear husband is out of town for a whole week. It's awful and sad in one way, but in another way, it's kind of awesome. I cherish my alone time, and I use it to do all kinds of things that I couldn't or wouldn't want to do with an audience. Like watching Dawson's Creek on Netflix all evening and breaking out my years-old boxes of tediously organized magazine cut-outs for some collage-making.  This particular collaging session was inspired by our recent re-modeling. Among a LOT of other things that I'll share later, we re-decorated our master bedroom with gray walls and lots of colorful artwork, including these two creations (circa 2007) that used to be in my apartment when I lived alone but have been hiding in the closet for over two years.


I've been so enjoying gazing at these while I lie in bed reading before bedtime that I decided to make some more.  

I don't think I like them as much as the old ones, but it's been a fun project. What do you think? Are they worthy of my etsy shop? Should I keep collaging?
