Round Robin Art Journal

I've participated in many internet art swaps over the years, but I have never participated in a Round Robin swap....until now.  I'm participating in my first ever art journal swap!  (Actually - this makes two firsts for me  as I've never made an art journal before.)  Needless to say, I've been spending many hours on Pinterest looking at art journal ideas.  (I love that site!)  This also presents a great opportunity to put my Zutter-Bind-It-All to work.  I just "had" to have one of these nifty little machines when they first appeared at the local craft store a couple of years ago.  I ended up receiving it as a Christmas gift that year and am now using it for the first time.  Oh, well, better late than never, right?

One of my artist friends on Facebook organized the event; there are 10 people participating.  Everyone in our Round Robin group begins by putting their journal together and deciding on individual themes.  Each person starts the process by decorating the first part of their journal.  The journals are then sent to each person in the group following a mailing list. Everyone will work on each journal sent to them and then send it to the next person until the journal has returned back home to its owner. 11 months, my journal will be returned to me - fully decorated!

The theme of my journal is "In the Kitchen".   Here is a picture of the cover:

And here are the first pages inside of the journal:

I'm looking forward to seeing what the other artists contribute to my little book, as well as what themes they have each decided on for their own journals.  I'll be sure to share my contributions with you each month during this little artistic journey.   It's going to be one awesome little adventure!

Felted Christmas Tree by Denise Toepel - How Cool is This?

Recently, I featured one of Denise Toepel's (ChaChingCk on ETSY) felted Christmas trees in this ETSY Treasury, "Recycled Christmas Goodies", and look what she sent me!  My own felted tree!  It came in this adorable little box.  Denise - thank you so much - I LOVE IT!!!

Denise's clever little creations are made from wool sweaters which she washed, dried, cut up and repurposed into adorable trees!  I absolutely love these!   When you go to ETSY, be sure to check out Denise's line of felted Christmas trees.  She makes them in several color palettes - everything from off white to cheery red - along with felted garland and other holiday decorations.
