Art received from Robin Krieger

What a wonderful surprise it was to unpack this carton and discover the treasures within: an art doll, for my collection, A box filled with beads, several lengths of fibres, and a tiny art journal. You can't see it on the photo, but the journal has pockets, and the pockets contain tags that can be pulled out. It takes real skill to do that with a journal this small!

Thank you very much, Robin!

Art received from Lynne White

This gorgeous carton arrived from Lynne White today. The carton is decorated with a map and slide frames. What a great way to use old maps!
Inside I found a piece of the famous Sedona red rock. Lynne also created this beautifully worked Asian-themed matchbox shrine, with lots of attention to detail. Also in the carton were an enclosed mesh tag, a fabric transfer portrait, and a baggie of tiny beads.
Thank you, Lynne!

The Final Space is filled!
