BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST......

........JUST KIDDING! (though I have had some e-mails from blog friends who wondered if I was o.k.) Anyway, I wasn't going to post these pictures because they were taken quickly and did not turn out to well, but then it occurred to me that my blog friends are used to my lack of camera skills! These are some accordion folders that I altered with music sheet covers and screen printing. If I do say so myself, I liked how they turned out. If you look real close on the right side of this picture, you can see the side of the folder. So, because the folder expands, one can stuff it with lots and lots of notes and ideas that will rarely get looked at, but at least you will know where they are if you can remember where you stored the folder!















This is the top of an old cake pan cover that I screen printed and added chalk board paint to.





Yesterday I set up for the garden show at the Ice House Mall in Barrington, IL. Tonite is the premier opening that will benefit Hospice, and then the show will continue thru Sunday. if I remember to take my camera, I will shoot some photos cause I think the set up is interesting.....So, dear friends, i will see you in a few days.

LOVE your accordion folders, Judy. You have so many beautiful, creative ideas! I'm guessing that the cake-pan-lid chalkboard also holds magnets & little notes?

Have a great time at the show. And, BTW, I think your photos are great!
Hugs,
Zuzu

Judy I love these folders! You are having way too much fun with the screen printing!!! These are so amazing. I wouldn't have to wonder where I put one of these, because it would be out where I could see it eveyday.
Have a great show Judy, I will be thinking of you.
hugs

Love your photo ideas. My problem would be that I wouldn't want to use them because they are so lovely.

Filing receipts might not be a chore with these.

I love the folders. I would get one, except I already have my bills super organized in a wire folder with a label you made that says "etc". On my kitchen counter.
