Creative Swaps

One of my gal pals is Lenna - whose creativity AND generosity never ceases to amaze me. She has introduced me to so many new things and has been a wonderful mentor even during moments of artistic crisis (who can forget Dang, Fudge and Recovery - an inside joke dealing with the gluing of altered book pages).

I had never done swaps before outside of a close group of friends here in town until Lenna got me fired up and going. So far there have been Vintage Note Cards...

And Little Books...
We've also done a personal swap using the same image...
And of course Mail Art! The latest swap I have joined is Post Cards - another first for me (though you can read about my trial run in my last post). And of course in her most magnanimous way she is doing a Give Away for her Creative Swap blog - I'm torn as the more I tell folks the worse my chances are for winning (boo hoo). Anyway, pop on over and see all the creative work that folks submit for swaps. You may just want to join up! Cheers, Jewels

  2. Ok, I'll have to get after you too,,,how can I win if you keep telling everybody! My chances are getting slimmer and slimmer. Watch for MailArt, I sent it off today. Got the grumpy Postal Lady.:(

  3. Everything you do is so pretty! And I think you are having a wonderful time with your art and swapping with other gals. Thanks for the congrats on my new little great grandson. I'm so happy he is here - will go to Colorado to meet him Labor Day weekend. :-) Carol
