MMSA paperbag book - incoming

Received my paper bag booklet today. Actually, it's prolly been out in the mail box for a few days but only collect the mail a couple times a week, despite the fact that it's about 50 feet from my front door. Just seems like too much trouble at the end of a long day at work. #lazybroad

It's from Laurie Morris and it's great. I love the colors. I'm not sure if Karen knows that or not but she more often than not sends me just what I wanted in the swaps. It's difficult to tell in the photos but the splotches of what looks like brown are actually metallic bronze which contrasts marvelously with the blues and greens. Each page has a flap that's either blank or with a quote on it. And each pocket held several pieces of painted papers to use in my art, last photo. Thanks, Laurie!



  1. Leslie -- score! that looks great. You don't collect your mail every day??????
    Shocking! lol

  2. I'm so glad to hear that you often get what you want. I really make an effort to match the pieces with the recipients and the more familiar I am with the swappers and their styles, the easier it gets. Plus I think you and I like a lot of the same things, so for you I can just pick the things I'm personally drawn to.
    (and I'm as shocked as Pamela that you don't check your mail every day - getting the mail has been my favorite task my whole life, even before I had such great things being regularly delivered.)
