It's a Circus Around Here!


It seems, recently, that many of my regular-blog-reads have noted how long it's been since they last posted.....and here I am thinking the same thing! What's up with that, I can't even explain.

I've been in the craft room and I've been makin' stuff...like these Itty Bitty Circus Book pages:


This is the last Itty Bitty Book Club Swap for a while. The head itty-bitty is taking some much needed time off--through the end of the year. Eleven swappers signed up for the Circus book and we were also invited to make more than one page if we wanted to. I always like a thick itty-bitty...hehee, I really like saying "itty-bitty". I found several great circus images out there on free image sites and decided to make three different pages (3 X 11).


Speaking of great images, for the backs of my pages I used three of them from the Logomachy Cards set I purchased from my friend Mary at her Green Paper Packages Shop. I added my blog information to them, but still a bonus page, don't you think? Mary also shares many wonderful free images on her blog, Green Paper.

It seems like there is less of this

and more of this

in our backyard today! Raking vs. blogging.....I'll get back to you on that!

Cute circus goodies! And as much as I miss the trees of my childhood home, I do NOT miss raking. That was always my job as a kid. Raking leaves every. single. weekend.

You're always creating wonderful pieces of art. Cute circus books! I've been enjoying the falling leaves...but probably because I don't have any in my yard clean up!

Hi Marilyn!

I've enjoyed my visit here and I read that you ate some Cajun Food??? You GO girl! I live in Louisiana...right in the heart of Cajun Country!

I wanted to thank you for your beautiful Vintage Spooky Halloween tag that graces my tag book! I'm so honored to have a piece of your art.

I will be posting about the tag book tomorrow (Halloween).

Your blog is so pretty and I'm so glad to meet you.

Have a wonderful Holiday~
everything vintage

Good grief I'm behind on my blog reading! Love your little book pages, and what a charming use of the Logomachy cards - I never even noticed the circus themes - you're so very creative!

Can I put the pic in my album? Please???

What a wonderful blog you have! So happy I popped by for a visit!

You're pages are fabulous! I can't wait to hold them in my hand and see them up close. I love a fat itty bitty, itty bitty, oh how I love those itty bitty books too. Thank you so much for making so many pages and for joining in on this swap. Hope to chat soon! xoxo Rhonda...
