I Have Found a New Time Suck

Time suck is a term coined by my husband for any activity where you completely lose all sense of time. Last night I got sucked into the black hole that is flickr. Anyone else done that? I spent hours uploading pictures and searching for groups of likeminded thrifters, crafters, and collectors. It was great to dust off my collection of children's books from my childhood and my mothers childhood and have someplace to showcase them. Aaron doesn't quite get my penchant towards collecting things, and really couldn't get his mind around flickr either. If I used it as a photo-sharing tool with family he'd get it, but I use another site for that, so flickr is strictly fun for me. If any readers here are on flickr leave me a comment with your flickr name, I'd love to check out your pictures! I'm on flickr as littlelovelies, and I'd welcome your comments on any of my pictures.

I'm off to make some felt needlebooks, which I'll show you as soon as I'm done. I was in my craft room all day yesterday sewing little brooches. There will be oodles to show you tomorrow if I manage to keep off of flickr!

I've never really investigated flickr but seeing posts about moo cards has got me thinking that maybe I should give it a go.
