Welcome to the second to last blog of the 2012-2014 Honolulu Altered Books Group. We have just one round left to go then we finally get to hold, touch, get lost in, enjoy and share with friends all the fabulous art that we created in each others books.
We couldn't have done it without the generosity of Deb Z
giving us a place to meet each month. Please visit her web site for Rubber Stamp Plantation for some great Island-inspired products.
An altered book can take you on a journey.
a trip to the past, a visit to the future.
a time of happiness, a time of sorrow.
sometimes funny, sometimes sad.
We can travel the world or stay in our own backyard.
Thank you for going on this journey with us.
