Tee at The Altered Paper holds a bi-monthly swap that's SO much fun...you fill a small envelope with materials and the recipient not only has to create a piece of art with said materials, but must use 75% of them!! What fun and what a great challenge! Tee was my partner and here's what she sent me and what I created...I added a few of my own things, as well
|the wonderful, inspiring goodies|
|the tag book I made - front cover is on your right|
|what was left that I didn't use!!|
I now have the most beautiful tag book...perhaps for a future giveaway!! Thank you, Tee!
I have some more to share that I've sent, but will wait until I receive mine...
Excited to say that my little Tucson Swap Group is off and running with our second....2 ATC's with a "Nature" theme. We'll exchange at the end of August with a potluck at my house, so I'll be sure to post about it.
Thought I'd share a few things I've been busy making for MMU...and a friend's birthday. The images are from Debrina Pratt at Land of Enchantment.
|these are my newest domino pendants - front|
|ready to give|
In the meantime, have a glorious week as we begin a brand-new month...summer will be ending and hopefully so will the oppressive heat...kiddies will be returning to school...and we'll be falling into a familiar groove as the holidays loom ahead!
