After traveling for 7 months and visiting 5 other art-makers,

my "round robin"altered book has come home!

I am continually delighted when looking through the pages....

finding roses (The title of the original book was "Watching the Roses"), mermaids, poetry, personal memories and even paper dolls. Altered books are interactive...
sort of like a homemade "pop-up" book for an individual. This one has pockets holding more treasures and tags hanging in the binding.

THANK-YOU, Gayle, Lizzzie, Linda, Julie and Carmen! I hope your round robin altered books are soon home to you and that they bring you smiles of delight!

[NOTE: If you would like to learn more about how to make and altered book and what one is look here.]

It was my great honor to participate in this project. Thanks for asking me.

It was also my great pleasure - as soon as I gave myself permission to let go and have fun!
