This past week at work, I was going through three boxes of 45 rpm records and writing the proper accession number on the sleeve (in pencil) for our museum's artifact inventory. All items in a museum get unique accession numbers; maybe you've seen these numbers in a museum exhibit before.
So, two boxes down, one to go. I hope to finish the third box today, when I go back to work. We are keeping the records in their sleeves, even though the paper is probably full of acid. Someday in the future, we'll wrap all the records in acid-free paper... I've been making pockets for the 45s that have lost their sleeves, at least!
I glued a torn piece of paper I found in one of the boxes onto a 4x6 piece of heavyweight decorative paper (I've really been getting into the 4x6 size lately!) Then I added some paper that's been laying on my desk... it has two new stamp designs that I've carved recently - a leaf and a fish. Finally I cut and pasted some piano music I had on hand, since I AM focusing on music!

See the row of flowers? This is from a self-inking Doodlestamper that I just bought. Have you ever seen this before? I bought it on the Joggles website, a new favorite place to buy supplies. There are all different designs; I have a dash line too!
