#7.Lisa Mallette: Little Book swap!

I just love these itsy bitsy teensy weeny books that Lisa from Florida sent in for our swap! And she gave me the idea to put a quarter in the photo so you could see how really tiny they are. The Bird book (shrink plastic) is a hostess gift!


I have some close ups below with the books open. They are little envelope books, how cool! And yes, you can even pull the "notes" out ; ^ ) Lisa wrote about making them and has some even better photos here.




Here is my gift book in it's new home in my studio!

It has a shrink plastic cover and paper pages : ^)
Thank you so much, Lisa!!! 
All of your books totally rock! The tiny envelope books are amazing.

Lisa, I hope you have a really wonderful time taking classes with Tim Holtz in Clearwater this weekend at Whim-so-doodle. This is a new store for me, I will need to check it out!! If I had known, I might have been able to join you . . . except, Steven has wrangled me into going to a Cedar Key boating - canoeing - sailing weekend coming up on Friday. Here is what last year's event was like. I have never been there before but it should be fun. We even have a Pet Sitter for Asia & Chloe!!

Thanks again for participating, love having you in my swaps!

These little books are so sweet! I love the colourful pages and all the little inserts. Your hostess gift is lovely too - I can never get my shrink plastic to be that flat:0(

Adorable! I'll be right behind the others visiting your blog. Lenna, have fun in Cedar Key.. it's a charming little village. And there's an interesting small museum at the state park facility a couple of miles from the downtown.

Lenna, thanks for your kind comments. I'm so glad you like the shrink plastic book! (I won't tell you how many failed attempts preceded it! LOL)

Having seen the wonderful books you've received so far, I'm excited about the swap returns! (Can we work it out that I get one of each???)
