I was so excited when my book arrived yesterday, wrapped up beautifully by Lolo with a golden ribbon, just like a present, which it is: a present from 9 very talented, gifted and loving artysoulsisters.
I have scanned it very big, so hopefully you can enlarge it and see each page.
Marianne, Mim, Lynn, Suki, Kate, Caroline, Lisa and Lolo, you are all such good 'team' players, such warm and caring women, such great artists, who have each created something so very personal for me, and it all fits together in this amazingly perfect little book, which I will treasure forever.
I am so glad that I started this project, (thanks Lisa, you were the first person to show a huge response and excitement when I first suggested it, and this spurred me on to make it happen).
Here it is on my window sill, where I can see it every day and think about a special cover I want to make for it. I do so wish we could display our books in some sort of arty magazine, as they are all wonderful achievements, and now Lynn has started a second round with more wonderful artists from round the World.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart one and all, you make my heart sing and my cup runneth over.


  1. It is a joy to see a completed book. And it all took four months...nothing at all in the scheme of things. I sure loved adding my pages to each book and think I have maybe two to go.
    (I am however unable to enlarge the photos, don't know why, but wish I could)
    Enjoy and thanks for running this blog and keeping us on track. It's been such fun!

  2. How delightful to see it all together!!
    Jossie, this was such a fun project, especially once I was a bit more settled into life ;)
    Now I'll be peering in on Lynn's new group, Artshine. I actually have a new idea brewing in my head and the postage won't be any more than a first class stamp! Stay tuned all...;)

  3. I'm so glad you got your book back. It is wonderful eh?! So fun to look through and see all the artworks. I echo Lynn in thanking you for hosting the blog. It has been great fun.

  4. Thank you Soul!!!!!
    A pity I can't enlarge the pictures.....
    But I am sure the end result is fabulous, as all of our 9 books will be!

  5. Well, this looks terrific, Joss! I also can't enlarge the pages :( but can well imagine that it is splendid. Thank YOU for getting us all together - what a wonderful project it's been.
