Purse book!

Victoria was asking about pics for her book so I took the liberty of photographing everyone's page, just so you can see the progress so far.

Vacation Time!

Posting a bit early but heading out for two weeks on Saturday and wanted to send this along. Guess I was thinking about my vacation when I put this together. A little black book from Joan Phillips with fold out pages and plenty of room for creativity. Enjoy! -- Jan

Daydream Believer

Lauren's (Gigglepotamus) book has Dudley dreaming (bottom picture) and each of us adding a page to his story. I can't paint or draw to save my life so my scraps and buttons continue the work. This is probably my silliest contribution so far (top picture).......but great fun!!

Eskimo Book

The book started by MaryJo is really beautiful, haunting and unique. It's huge so I didn't really make a tremendous impact...a few pages here and there, but I really enjoyed reading the text - quite a few passages will stay with me for the long run. Very poetic and spiritual. Thanks MaryJo!

Bringing a little something to each page...

Adding some "art-a-day" to Traci's book was addictive! It motivated me to flirt with a different medium for a little while. I got out my well-worn Keats book of poems and felt that his Grasshopper and Cricket ode went well with the nature allusions.

bye bye bookie

This little book is about the size of a passport and arrived full of scribbles, squiggles and squippies (squippies are my just invented word for tiny stickers).

Not much room at the book inn here, but managed to find an empty spot.......a page with a cream squippy on it. That would be the one on the right.......and there I added some colored penciling.

And off it goes today July 1, 2010 to the next recipient. Happy summer to all!
