First round nears its end...

It is amazing to think that our first round of entries is nearing its end. So far this has been a wonderful fun and amazing experience for me and from all the posts that everyone has made to the blog - for everyone else as well.

As we continue forward, I wanted to remind everyone that in our second round we will have 2 new group members. Kelley and Rose who were displaced from an exchange that ended. Both of these ladies are wonderfully talented and I look forward to having them in the group.

In the next couple of months - once our first round officially ends - I will be updating the group mailing rotation and will send out the appropriate information to everyone.

Hello Ladies,

Just wanted to check in.  I'm sorry I've been absent.  You wouldn't believe the things that have happened to me this past month, none of them good, and some of them incredibly heart-breaking.  

I did get a new job, starting Monday as a graphic designer for a company called LearnKey.  Designer jobs are few and far between here in Southern Utah so you can bet I'm counting my blessings and looking forward to some new challenges.  I'm sure this means my stars are starting to align:)  

Thanks for all of the wonderful work and posts in this exchange, it is amazing how therapeutic and exciting these little books are.  It's cool to know there are people out there that think just like me and enjoy being creative.  And it's a gift to have their artwork to keep forever.  

Here's to the future.

I'm almost finished with Alice in Wonderland, I'll post this weekend.

Moly in the mail

Racheal's moly is in the mail on it's way to Kari. Should be there in the next 2-3 days. I realized as I was signing in to post this that I forgot to take pictures of the envelope. Ah well.

I don't know if anyone else has realized this but we are very close to finishing up out first round. Holy cow.

Racheal's moly - entry finished...

This one was a hard one for me. I was finding it hard to follow after Jen this time around. Her entry was so amazing!! Add to that all of the things that I have been going through lately and I am surprised that I did get it done. I am however behind now. I have 2 entries for a watercolor moly that need to be done now. I am still loving the moly exchange though. So, I know Racheal said that she didn't really have a theme, but after reading her entry - I knew what I had to do. My entry - is a recurring nightmare that I have had for years. What you see is only a part of it. The other part is me not being able to scream.
This was my first attempt at using crosshatching to shade. I will say that I don't hate it and am not as repulsed by my own entry as I thought I would be.

it's in the mail

Hello everyone!
I finally found some time to finish my entry in Kari's moly.
Here is the envelope... it's coming your way Jennifer
