Swap Fever

Okay, I admit it. I have the swap fever, for just about anything art related. I keep saying I am going to do other things, like maybe make just one of something, but I keep coming back. Right now, I am hostessing 5 different swaps and playing in others. Am I crazy? Here are my pages for an itty bitty 3x3 book of abc pages I am hostessing in one of my Yahoo! groups. We started it back in December and won't finish until early March, and I can hardly wait to see all of the pages. I am doing two letters, so I can get two sets of pages, and make one set into a book for my aunt who loves this kind of stuff. She used to be a librarian in an elementary school, so it will be even better than just seeing the art. I chose I for inchies and Q for quilties. The inchies I made out of metal and glued down to some leftover background paper I did for a background swap on another group. The quilties are like little victorian style crazy quilts. I am done with the I's and almost done with the Q's.
And then there are the puffy hearts for a swap someone else is hostessing. The photo shows the fronts of some of mine. I made three kinds and four of each, but they are all different in some way.I am trading some on the online group, some with Penney, and keeping one of each, so I will be able to display them all like a centerpiece. I got so stinking excited about hearts after seeing the In Love magazine from Somerset Studio that shows a round robin project, kind of like True Colors goes to valentine land.


  1. Great stuff Jane. I can't wait to get your ABC pages!
