* Lenna's Little Book Swap ...

Good Morning Blog Land! :o)  I want to say Thank You to all of you who answered my question about building a 'stash' from scratch.   Everyone was so very helpful and supportive.  From your answers, a couple more tweeks and I am well on my way to having the best stash in Mexico.  (Not difficult to do, believe me!)  Time and time again, the artist community bedazzels me.  Never afraid to support each other.  Such a gift. 

Little books from all over the world are beginning to arrive at Lenna's.  Mine were posted yesterday ... they arrived safe and sound.  Pop over and have a look from time to time .. not only at mine, but at the fifty-nine other entries as they come in.  Such talent out there ... all so exquisite and unique.  A real treat.

Leena did a lovely write up, and there are some great comments about my contribution.  It all makes me smile.  It was so much fun contributing to this swap.  I think I might be hooked on creating little books.

When you come looking for sugar,
your bag will be examined
to see how much it can hold;
it will be filled accordingly.  ~  Rumi

This is one of my very favorite Rumi quotes.  We often think we might be deemed to be 'greedy' if we bring a large bag to be filled with the sweetness of life.  When .. in fact .. it is intended we show up with the very largest bag we can conjure up in our minds.  Always think BIG ... the outcomes of our lives are directly related.

Thanks for coming to visit today.  Don't forget, we are having an earring give away on Cinco de Mayo.  I would love it if you would join in.  Please refer to this post for 'the scoop'.  That's only THREE MORE SLEEPS.
