Coming soon, a new creative swap!

Do you like little books? Would you like to learn how to make small books? Do you have a favorite little book you'd like to create and trade for another cool little book? Well hang on! In just a couple of weeks I will unveil a brand new creative swap ~ little books! Below are a few small books I've made. Click for detail.


These range in size from 1" to 5" and that's about the size I'd like to see for this swap. Most of these were made for my husband, because Steven really loves little books! Four of the ones you are looking at here were created out of just one single sheet of paper, amazing. Above you can also see a fabric book that has ATCs for pages, a watercolored accordion book, and a teeny tiny book with a shrink plastic cover. When you register for this swap I will include a lesson on making mini books. How's that sound?  I'll be back as soon as I can after I've written the lesson and organized the swap details. I would expect to announce this new swap around the end of March, beginning of April and it will not be due until early June. Till then, you can always check in on my creative lenna blog, if you like. See you soon! It will be great!
Edit: The swap is now full and closed for registrations! Go here to read the details.

Hi Leena -- sorry to post here. My computer crashed and I lost your email address and the letter you sent with everyone's email from the vintage swap. Would you mind e-mailing me at dorothydonnaparker@gmail.com. Because I am on my old computer I can't use your push button e-mail system. Thanks ... also ... delicious cards arrived in the mail. can't wait for your book swap.
