What Do You See?

The latest QB5 swap is about making something from a "pile of stuff"
(or bits as Margaret and Carole call them).
We set up some guidelines for ourselves....
hmmppph!..... and sent them off.
We sent the same packet of stuff to each of the other swappers. Above is what Carole sent us. I forgot to take a picture before I began to assemble her's...so this is from Margaret's blog...the only difference is my lady is different.
Carole works mostly in fabric..... so she's really loving all the paper we sent her!
Below is what Nathalie sent us....she loves an Asian theme... which I find extremely difficult to work in.... Nathalie's foundation piece is a coaster and we are to not have things hanging off of it.
Next up is Patty.
Patty's foundation is a toasted, flattened sardine tin!
I think she sent a strange assortment of stuff.
She thinks they all go together quite well.
hmmmm...
Here is Margaret's assembly....
her foundation piece is a bingo card.
We all got different men... I got the priest.
Considering that it's bingo..I think they go well together!!!
I mailed them a chipboard house shape that I got at Michael's. So my hope is that I can hang them all together once home....a little QB5 Neighborhood!
I've already received mine back from Patty!
It is ADORABLE!
You are going to love it!
I'm waiting to show it....don't want to influence the others that are still working!
I have finished all of them except Carole's!
I also need to make a house out of my stuff.
Hopefully we will have a reveal soon.
Keep watching!
Maybe I'll show some sneak peeks soon?
Yeah.....maybe tomorrow....

I always enjoy the creative antics of the Queen Bee's! This will be really fun to see the reveals especially since each of you will be working with the same pile of "bits"...{great word!}.

So YOU'RE one of the Bee's who buzzed about Patty's bits being strange! ha ha You do know that strange in the art world is just a higher form of thinking, right?! That's what I tell my family when they don't "get" some of creative pursuits. LOL!

LOVE THAT TEXAS BLUEBONNET HEADER!!! Did you take that pic recently? Are they blooming right now?
Xo, Sue

What a wonderful idea for a swap and challenge! You're going to have such fun thinking outside of your box for Nathalies -- and what fun to get them back and do something with them!

I swear, you are the most creative group of women I've ever "known!"

(Love the new blog header, too!)
