Round Robin #9

Round Robin #9

Honlulu Altered Books Group 4th Quarter final round up.



Aloha, and Happy New Year,

Well, we finally got the blog back on line after a long time of fighting those dreaded electronic bug-a-boos. But I learned a lot from this last round robin by using the themes of the books to help me get through this ordeal. Such as, It can be mundane doing this blog every month, but when it is finished it is sublime. When the blog is finished I can then chill-lax'. Also, when the blog is finished it's what makes me sing. Weather I'm on a high rise adventure or constructing a game plan, I can always design and create art, be it a circle of color or by way of a mystery palette challenge.  I can thank my faerie folk friends for they are my true heroes, with their imagination illustrated guidance.  It's about time to thank everybody for their patience for the long wait.  Now
what's my line? Oh, yes! Thanks to Deb Z for her generosity for giving us a place to meet each month at Rubber Stamp Plantation.
Please enjoy the last three months of creative art..
