Honolulu Altered Books Group May 2014

Aloha,
 
Well, we did it!
 We finished round robin # 8!  It ran from Sept. 2012 to May 2014! We have come to the end of a long journey together and
we created some fabulous art in each other's books.
 
 Debbie and I are excited to continue hosting our second decade of Honolulu Altered Books Group. You should all be proud of the art you have
created. I thought you would like to know that a lot of people have viewed your artwork on this blog.
 This round robin has been viewed in 51 countries. Here is the round up by country:
United States, Canada, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Malaysia, Argentina, New Zealand, Columbia, Finland, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Romania, Venezuela, Thailand, Belgium, Greece, Ecuador, Korea, Norway,Portugal, Taiwan, India, Philippines, Chech Republic, Israel, Denmark, United Arab Republics, Malta, Qatar, Ukraine, Turkey, Maurtitus, Hungry, South Africa, Switzerland, Belarus, Slovakia, Chile, Indonesia, Iceland, Singapore and Egypt.
 
We want to dedicate the round robin to Lori Mitrulevich who we lost late last year. She was an inspiring artist as well as a great friend and we will all miss her.
 
 
 
Art enables us to find ourselves
and lose ourselves at the same time.
