Welcome to the "Grow Your Blog" party! It's exciting to see that over 500 blogs are participating ... I am thrilled to be one of them!
My friends call me Jo ... and I write here in this little bit of space out in blogland ... my blog is called "My Paper Playhouse" due to both my love of paper and my love of play ...
I am a scrapbooker and cardmaker, who is also passionate about art journalling and altering objects ... to me there is nothing more fun than getting my hands inky and painty and sticky with glue! Somehow from out of all of this chaos I manage to make a few projects I love! I also love fabric and in the past have made clothes, quilts and dolls ... but right now my focus is paper.
I thought i would share a couple of little items i have altered in the past ...
I made this little vintage style spoolie for a "spoolie" swap ... i actually used a vintage thread spool ...
This is a fun little art journalling page i did for a challenge group! The prompt was "somewhere, a simple place" and this is what I came up with... I do love mixing vintage images into my art journalling.
For those of you that have read all of the way down to this point, i am offering a small giveaway to celebrate this blog party. I am making 4 vintage styled greeting cards with coordinating envelopes (picture will be up in a couple of days ... yes i do procrastinate)/ If you want to be entered simply leave me a comment on this post. I will do a random draw on February 15th and announce the winner at that time! I will also add in a couple of little paper play goodies!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the blog hop ... just click the "Grow Your Blog" button up top right, to see all of the other participants!
peace, love & paper
