 We hope that everyone is being safe and washing your hands often.
What a crazy world we live in. What better thing to do when you are quarantined then to do art, play music, enjoy your family and binge watch Netflix!

This round robin has a wide range of book themes. Book Jewelry, Everything & Nothing, Fishing Tales, Gratitude, Threads, Keep on Truckin, Keep Calm and..., Tea with Friends, Your Last Meal, Gypsies Tarot & Earth Magic and Shape.

Please enjoy this months art.

"Tea With Friends" book.
