I love her blog, and I love getting packages from Poland- I hope she loves getting packages from the US!!!
Late last year, Michelle started a project with 50 participants- and asked me to be one of them. It was really more a project for HER! Everyone was to mail her 50 pages/papers of a certain size- vintage paper, art paper, ads, any old ephemera. She was then going to assemble 50 notebooks (!), cutting, mixing, and matching all the paper she received.
What a massive undertaking!!!!
Yesterday, a postage stamp encrusted box showed up at my PO - finally, after a long trip across the sea......
Here, also, was the Projekt Zeszyt- Project Notebook!
Below, was what I found in the brown paper - I had sent Michelle some canning jars a while back - and she was sending me one - a great Polish glass jar! Took me a minute to figure out how to get it open- and then, that spring just FLEW off at me!!!!
The jar was stuffed with wonder-full pins- crocheted by Michelle- little flower brooches - and an adorable little button tree!!!
The jar was wrapped in a beautiful crocheted purple shawl- it is so nice - THANK YOU, MICHELLE!
My daughter saw it, and said - "It's PURPLE!"
Uh, oh, hide the shawl - she loves purple!!! LOL
And, finally - here is the notebook - upside down, of course (thanks, blogger, thought we had resolved this....)
There were 50 pages of all types - so neat - just took pics of a few of them - everything from vintage, to hand painted vellum, mostly European. I almost don't want to even put anything else on the pages - each page looks great as is!!
I did already take some of the polka dot red tape that was on the package, and use it on the cover of the journal. I will probably use the stamps, and brown paper in the journal somehow also, and one of the flower pins!
What a great swap and project!!!
Be sure to drop by Michelle's blog and see some of the wonderful things she creates!!
