* Leena's Little Book Swap ...

Make 2 or 3 or 4 little books and swap.  Books can be no larger than five inches.  They must be made from scratch .. no buying and decorating (fat chance of that in Mexico :o).  I joined.  There is still time to register.  I love Leenas' Swaps.  Read about the Little Book Swap HERE.

I began my first book yesterday.  It's not quite finished.  A little more embellishment would be fun I think.  These miniature envelopes are so captivating to me ... just had to put them in a little book.  I have stuffed them with stamps.

I can't decide whether to do them all the same, or experiment with some different ones.  It's a time factor at the moment for me.  We will see.  Pop over to Leena's and have a look around.  It's a great site.  I think she's taking 55 entries for this swap.  Join in ... such fun.

Good art has good craft, good craft is artistic. ...


  1. Hi Donna, I am sooooooooooo pleased you are in on this swap too, the world is small. I am joining in for the first time after having it recommended to me. Looking forward to see what you make! I am off to bed now, in my bed, and not on my friend's tiny couch tonight! Sleep well and pleasant dreams, Hugs, Valerie

  2. Fabulous little book with the envelopes. Great idea. Ok , yes my stash is pretty awesome. I am a collector of pretty things and images. I do to flea markets, tag sales and even recyle label and paper stuff. Some day Ill put my studio on my blog. I would have to clean it up first! LOL, take care, gerri

  3. Hi Valerie .. the world IS indeed small ... can't wait to see what you are up to as well. Nothing like our own beds ... Tonight it is to HOT here -- I'm not sure what to do with myself. First time I've experienced this kind of heat here in the high desert ... unusual. I night go and live in the shower.

  4. It would be so much fun to view your stash/studio in the flesh, Gerri ... I vote you blog it just the way it is.

  5. oh my! I am way behind on your blog! The book swap sounds so fun and this is adorable. viva la mexico!
