A 'picture heavy' post today
of the delightful swap art pages
that I received from Valerie...
for my "Word & Number Play" theme.
They are full of games and vintage
rhymes and cute children.
There are so many clever pockets
The hands on this page are
The tag on the right has the
Swap and contact info.
I really love all of the vintage
style papers she found!
This amazing page opens up
to reveal a Snakes and Ladders
game board. I believe Valerie drew
this herself! So well done, and I know
it had to be time consuming. Not sure
if it's watercolor or marker, but the black
ladders look like they have been
oh-so-carefully drawn on.
I wish the little snakes and ladders
tag with the tiny game piece, die,
and letters on square beads had
scanned better. So cute!
I was somewhat dismayed to see
how many extra pages I received
from Valerie, as i had not sent her
nearly so many. She said that since my
'pages were so much smaller' (than
hers) that she thought I should
receive more of them! So sweet of
her, and more goodies in the box
besides! Thank you so much...
What a generous group of ladies
in this swap!
I must, of course, include some little
drawings from my Techo calendar. I
made a very quick road trip from Ohio to
Tennesee to see the grandchildren,
and be the proud Grandma at a
Saved the ticket, and drew my
best remembrance of her little
recital outfits. Lots of sparkly sequins!
If you are still with me after all these
images, I leave you with animals in
tea cups for T Tuesday...I found the
'black cat in a tea cup' on a collage
page that someone gave me, and
the hamster in the cup (left) is inspired
by Kawaii animals on Pinterest.
Some days you just gotta provide
yourself with extra cute stuff!
Hope your week is full of sunshine
and artful adventures! And maybe
some extra cute stuff too...
