Welcome to the summer edition of the Honolulu Altered Books Group blog. It sure has been a hot summer here in the islands, but that's the price you pay for living in paradise.
We have a jam-packed blog this month, filled with some fabulous art created by the talented artists in our group.
We meet every month at Rubber Stamp Plantation. Thanks to Deb Z. for being so generous and letting us meet at her shop. Please stop by her shop or visit the web site for some great island inspired stamps, stickers, decals, and more!
Please enjoy the art.
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
