Kara Klein - 1st Valentine Ornaments in!

Just late last week, after returning from our vacation, I recieved my very FIRST Swap package for the new season from Kara Klein in Los Angeles, CA. All of the ornaments you see in this post were created by Kara - what variety, and what a delight it was to open her package! Kara decided to make TWO sets and sent in 6 valentine ornaments for this swap, due in my hands February 2nd - only aboout a month away! If you are participating in this swap here is a gentle reminder to start playing and thinking valentines- if you have not already.

An unfortunate turn of events for one of our participants, Beverly T. (a broken wrist - ouch!) means that I have one spot now open in the Valentine ornament swap ~ NOW FULL. You can read some of the swap details in the original post and then if you are interested in joining, please email me to see if the space is still open. Thanks and a Very Happy New Year -quite creative with lots of art involved- to everyone reading! yours very truly, Lenna.

p.s. Kara so kindly made me a beautiful gift as a thanks for the swaps I host that she has enjoyed. Thank YOU so much, Kara! I just adore the little clay book you made for me - I can't help but share it, please see photos below.

Happy Holidays & update on 2008 swaps!

12.04.07- 010, originally uploaded by creativelenna.

Even though I'm sure everyone's attention has most likely shifted to the Holiday season, I still wanted to say hello and update you on my Creative Swaps for 2008. One of the 4 swaps I announced (in late November) is already filled! The Shades of White Quiltie Swap, due April 26th is now FULL with 30 participants. If you are interested in being put on a waiting list, I will take a few names just in case someone who has signed up has to drop out. Email me at: lenna[at]creativelenna[dot]com.

The other 3 swaps have just a few spaces; Creative Bags is now closed (12/13 -check the sidebar for updates), and no spaces for the Valentine Ornament swap. There are 7 spaces left for the Alpha Stamps Tallulah's Postcard/Card swap -I am taking up to 35 participants for this Alpha Stamps Sponsored swap (with a free gift) and so, there are more spaces available.

I hope you will be joining in on the fun! If you are not able to join a swap, it's always great just to check out the art here once the swap pieces start rolling in. The Valentine Ornament swap is due in my hands by February 2nd, so I imagine I will have a busy January uploading art! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. . . . . . I should let you know that I will be away to a warm climate with my dear husband December 16th - December 23rd ~ our present to each other! So if you write to inquire about signing up for a swap that week -- I will not be able to respond to you at that time. DO not worry; I will get back to you sometime after December 25th, I promise. If you do not hear from me by the 27th of December, please email me again.

Have a creative holiday and thanks for all the fun, and the inspiring art this past year via these swaps!!!
