Last spring at craft day, Beth asked Mary and I if we wanted to join a round robin book project with her and Lisa. She kind of knew that Mary would say no, she is all glue book, all the time. Why not stick with what you are an expert at? She is smart to do that.
Okay, back to the subject. Beth probably didn't expect me to say yes, either. I tend to over extend and do too much, then do nothing but complain about it, so she probably hoped I'd say no since she is the one who has to listen to the complaints.
But I love her work, and Lisa's work and thought it could be fun. (it is!)
I kind of cheated and worked ahead, we were supposed to make one page a month for a year. I made up four pages right away, one for each of us, so that when my turn came, I just had to slip the premade page in the box and send it on. For my first four pages, each are similar, they are all paper doll dresses with vintage lace skirts or real doll dresses.
Right now, I have Sandra's book, she joined us as our 4th. All of us have admired her work over the years.
This is the page that Lisa made for it.
Won't these be amazing when they are done next year??? I'm so glad I joined, even if Beth has to explain the schedule to me every month and I complain about the postage. Its worth it. These books are going to be treasures when they are done!
There are some new things in the works, ready for the shop, but this is a busy week with the little fairy grand kids, with Dew Drop's birthday and Sugarwings spending time here at the cottage with me an extra day this week. This snow bird is listed.
And over at the Etsy shop, its sure begining to look a lot like Christmas. Frosty little pastel trees are being added to the shop daily.
Thanks to all of you who are shopping with me!
