Wouldn't you know that a year after creating this blog with the best intentions, my first post is to enable me to GET SOMETHING.
And it's because I don't think doing it on Facebook counts.
Anyway, I follow the blog of an artist, Creative Lenna, who holds swaps which are also online classes. I would love to take one, but my back pain won't allow it just now. However, she has made an art journal and is going to give it away. Some people won't understand that -- and even as a longtime artist trading groups member and swapper, I am amazed at the generosity of giving away an art journal. The passion and effort involved in creating an art journal is so intense, at least in my mind, I'd have a hard time. But perhaps Lenna does them so often and so easily it's not much more than trading an ATC.
Here is her blog entry about the new class:
And here is the entry about the giveaway:
And here is her blog's button, which I hope will appear on my sidebar, and not create all the problems it did on Facebook (e.g. including a comment as the only text).
