My scanner was smokin' !

No...smokin', not Smokey! LOL

I have started to feel better and decided it was time to attack the mounds and mounds of vintage cards that I have bought over this last year…..

I have scanned in over 250 of them, and donated the ones that didn’t work at all…not my style, damaged, etc……it took me about five hours, maybe six!

I still have about 50 more to go and am looking everyday for more.


This is just a small portion…I am going to be putting out at least one , if not more CD’s…I would like some input from all of you please….should I do them by holidays and then Misc.???? ( birthdays, get well, etc)…or should I mix them up??????

I have a whole lot of Christmas! So I think that is going to be one CD on it’s own….


Just a little sample of the fun items I have! So many bright fun vintage children’s cards! I did some of my family’s last night too, what fun that was! To see the card my Dad bought my Mom for Mother’s Day from me…and lots from my brother…too cute!

I haven’t done a lot of the baby cards, as they all start to look the same after awhile…but I have enough!


So, I will be getting the CD’s put together and in my Etsy shop as soon as I can. It is never too early to start thinking about Christmas crafts, right?? LOL

Thanks for stopping by!

Glad your feelin' better. What a project. I would think to group them by holidays or subject. Whatever you do I'm sure it will work!
