I've gathered all these circus images
but funny how I can't seem to find a thing to say...
perhaps it's just finding a place to start that is the problem
Usually when I put a post together it takes weeks and weeks of preparation.
Last night after work I was trying to find something
I could quickly put together for todays post
I started with one idea and quickly moved onto another
and then all of a sudden everything came together
a post full of Circus Day Fun
These sweet illustrations are from the 1950 Wonder Book
The Baby Elephant
I love the little sash around the babies neck
and the bright primary colors
Unfortunately this little book has seen better days
it's spine is all but gone ... so sad!
I've been collecting vintage coloring books for years now
I cut them up and categorize them for quick reference
This is one I scanned for you to use!!!
I would LOVE to make digital sets to share
but sadly, very sadly I never kept the copy-write pages
so I have no way of knowing if it's okay to
make profits on these images or not :(
So I've started to scan them, so that I will always have them
and in some small way I can share them with others
by making little craft packs and such
I started to make a circus themed craft pack for my shop
and soon it turned into something much more fun
much much more special
A very special Birthday Party pack!
Streamers, vintage cake decorations, a little circus conductors vest,
a spinning top, vintage birthday cards and oh so so much more.
I can only imagine the fun such a party would bring
so very very unique...
Or perhaps you could use the supplies to decorate a little nursery room?
All is tucked safely in a box ready to ship out to someone special...
It's funny how organically blogging comes to me
When I first started I would stress about what to share
It is time or rather the lack of it that causes me the most stress now
I always have so much to share
and so my ideas start piling up in one straight line
I work on each one from time to time
until one is finished and I press "Publish"
"Time is a circus,
always packing up and moving away."
Well I must be off
I MUST stop procrastinating and finish painting the guest room :(
I hope you all had a lovely week!
