Tiny Books From Gigantic Talent

The "Tiny Book Swap" that was hosted by Lenna Andrews has come to an end.
Today I received four magnificent tiny books from four very talented women.

One came from Donna, that was beautifully wrapped with a pearl stickpin.

Each page so colorful and the last one had the famous Fortune Telling Fish tucked inside!

Next I opened the book that Kiki created. I soon learn that she lives close by in Salem and that we both have taken classes at the same place and we both know the infamous Dayna Collins! Every page of Kiki's book has a tiny pocket with a secret tag in each!

The third tiny book came from Linda in Pennsylvania. Filled with wonderful quotes - there is one secretly tucked away which has my 2011 word...."JOY" in it! The colors and art she chose and did are fabulous!

And then I open the last one. Oh's Corinne's book. She is the person that told me about the book swap. Her art is amazing; everything she creates is so unique and awe-inspiring.

Such wonderfully talented and creative woman - they are true inspirations! How lucky I am to have received theirs!

Thank you Donna, Kiki, Linda and Corinne!!!!

  2. Hello Bobbie,

    I saw your amazing mini accordion book on Donna's blog. I'm a geometry teacher and would love to know how to fold this. It would be a great project to use with my students. Can you point me to a website for instructions, please? Thanks so much. Patty
