Yeah... it's known at work I am a collector of tins and that I bead and stuff - when one coworker's mother passed away, I got dozens of garbage bags of yarn... I get big bags of tea tins and one clerk gives me all his Altoids tins, and there are nurses who no longer even work on my unit who will drop by with interesting tins. Jim saves me all his neat cigar boxes and tubes, and one person gave me all their beads and Japanese bead books when they lost interest.

I need to train them as to what "ephemera" means...

Wonderful montage - It looks like a charcoal drawing.  I love it.

Thanks - that's all thanks to the hubster - he can get pretty excited about wood stuff and a total enabler.  It helps that he's a wood hoarder and this was a beautiful piece of scrap he had leftover from a renovation he did years ago.

Yep - thrift stores, salvage stores, literally junk on the street/dumpster diving.  Junk drawers of elderly relatives, button jars.  Garage sales/yard sales/church sales.  If you know of a local salvage yard, you may be able to find weird and wonderful crap there.  We have a textile museum and every year they have a big sale - I am going to it a couple of weeks from now and I have found some great vintage buttons there.  Surplus stores - we have a couple in my city and it has some seriously neat stuff for assemblage or gear heads.

Otherwise, a lot of art/crafting/beading stores and sites sell charms and beads for that look.  Or you can make your own too  with resin, clay, paper clay in molds, or paper and dies too.

Wow - I can't believe you got all that bling for that price- that is a seriously huge amount of rhinestones.  I especially love the eyes!

Thanks - that's why I called it "Creative Collective" versus something that says "Tin of money".  We have a separate tin for the Christmas money too and I need to make it pretty as well.  But right now I am happy to say that there is almost $2000 in cash in the house - so in case of emergency, we can at least grab those and have ready cash as well.

They are all wonderful - I love the white on black and how great your mason jar looks, and the batik fabric for the second one is beautiful... but you took my heart with your embroidered dog!

Great way to use up small bits of yarn!  They look like they would make nice sachets and soap bags/scrubbies too!
