It's been so hot here. Blazing. 109 degrees. And today was cloudy...can you say humid, too? We try very diligently to monitor our energy use so the A/C is out of the question during peak hours. That's why the title of this post is slug, as in...I am one.

I've been making a few more things for the etsy shop...slowly. It's starting to sound like a phantom, huh? But it's happening, you've just got to trust me.

In the meantime, since I haven't taken one picture today, I'm sharing a vintage ad image, one of the hundreds I have from a collection of vintage children's magazines. It, too, will be one of the things for sale in my etsy shop, along with other, similar, images.

My magazines are turn-of-the-20th-century-vintage so they're mostly in pretty bad shape. Their content is in the public domain so copyright issues are far less. The illustrations are so amazing - clever, creative, detailed - I love to look at them. For etsy, I scan the images, 'clean' them up and make them available for purchase in the shop. The uses for artists, crafters, and other creative types are certainly far more than I can imagine!

Tomorrow is only supposed to be 104. What a reprieve! Sort of...
