I DO Love Being a Part of Paper Whimsy

I thoroughly enjoy the various art exchange groups I belong to, and just this past week I joined another. Paper Whimsy has always been a favorite online source of collage sheets and other bits and baubles. The Paper Whimsy Ning Group also does not disappoint. What a warm, welcoming and highly creative group of people I've had the good fortune of getting to know. I highly recommend WhimsyLand to anyone looking for an inspirational, artistic home.
My first endeavor is the Whimsy Word Journal Swap. Each participant is to create a journal using found objects for the cover. I used bingo boards from an old Milton Bradley game. This is the journal I'll be sending to Sallie in California.

The Wonderful World of Swapping

I'm participating in A May Day Tussie Mussie Swap at A Swap For All Seasons, and what a wonderful place it is to swap! The blog owner and hostess, Linda has created a friendly and inspirational forum.
My swap partner is Melissa in Tennessee. We quickly got to know each other via email chats and creating a special tussie mussie and goodie package for her was great fun. We share a love of birds and nests and all things vintage. Unable to wait until the group's actual mailing date, Melissa is already in possession of her personalized tussie mussie so I'm able to share the creation here.
