Karla Nathan has great swaps that she puts so much of herself into.  The current one Karla has Fairies for the theme.  She is a great artist and she has made covers for a book and we are each sending 8 pages which will be shared so our book when returned will have the covers and 8 different pages made by others.  Karla does great watercolors and she painted the cover of the book herself and it is great.  She has near 100 participants and you can just imagine 800 pages spread around while she compiles almost 100 books and returns them to us.  What a gal.  Shealso has a great blog and etsy site.

She asked that we do our artwork on the front of the page and just put some sheet music, etc. on the back so no blank pages.  I did a fairy on the front and then used her sheet music for the back but added a little book that tells about Fairy rings. You can turn the page and read the story.  I sent mine off a good week ago so Karla should have mine by now.  I look forward to receiving my book sometime the end of sept. Her little Yorkie named Twinkie gave birth to 9 pups which is a huge amountfor this little dog.  They will have to hand feed them for the first while so the books certainly can wait.  Pups come first.

Your pages are beautiful Freda and I love the little book about fairie rings on the back page.

I did Karla's last swap 'Birdsong' but I ran out of time for this one.
Look forward to seeing the pages you receive back - how exciting for you!!!

wishing you a wonderful weekend Freda

I love Karla's blog and have been reading it for years. she feels like part of the family, LOL. (actually, she does have some family here in Utah). I wanted to play in this swap, but am busy preparing for the CQI retreat here which is next week!! Hugs to you, dear Freda! Cathy
