So I commented in this thread the other day ...

http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15696...

... and now I'm suddenly feeling the need for brads, brads, and more brads!

Off to add to my wishlist ....

Yep. Because of that thread I dug out my brad/eyelet tackle box thingy and realized I need more nickel and copper colored brads.

And eyelets.

I don't know yet whether to be thankful or mad.

And of course if I get more ... I'll have to reorganize. Vicious circle, lol.

that thread made me realize that its been ages since i did a brad "sneeze" page (and maybe that's a good thing, lol).

but seriously, brads are some of my favorite supplies especially fabric brads and all doodlebug brads. i recently saw a way to use brads to add twine to a layout so that it stays in place. i've also used them to help pivot out hidden journaling.

Lol. I went to take a look at my brads and found a spare box with extra brads I did not know I had... It's almost like shopping

I did a page a little while ago where I used brads to keep my twine in place.....
I've just recently started using more of them as well. For awhile there, I don't think Iused them for anything except flower centres.

Here are some of mine I used eyelets for - I thought the simulated bullet holes.

We saw the car that Bonnie and Clyde were killed in - its in a small museum in Primm, Nevada in the lobby of one of the casinos. The guy who owns the casino actually bought the car and has it on permanent display.

Anyone who knows my pages knows I love to journal and love to research so the first page is the story of Bonnie and Clyde. If you click on it, the story is written out in the description.

love brads and eyelets

I use brads to secure ribbon and as flower centers
Eyelets are for lacing (which is a new obsession for me)
