Row House Swap Arrived!



I was so excited to receive the 11 row houses from the swap I joined. It's been quite awhile and I had almost forgotten them! My good friend, Jeri , of The Artful Gathering hosted this and there were approximately 30 participants, all of whom made eleven houses and received in return eleven houses from other artists. It is so inspiring to receive other artists' work and to see the different interpretations of the same theme. The only "rules" to this were to make the houses on matboard with dimensions no taller than 8" and wider than 4" (at least that's what I remember the dimensions to be!).

I received houses from:

Elaine Akers, Kathy Wasilewski, Gerdie Fisher, and Connie Hippen (top photo left to right)

Chelise Stroud Hery, Virginia Madison, Heather Robinson and Laurie Blau-Marshall (middle photo left to right)

Lydia Hildebrandt, Mary Wagner and Cher Blasengame (bottom photo left to right).

Click on any of the highlighted names to go to their blogs or websites and check out the other art of these talented women! Thank you so much ladies for sharing your art with me!

Susan -

Thanks so much for your sweet note! I'm glad you got one, too!

And thanks for posting a picture of all the houses you got. I hope everybody does that. I'm dying to see them all!

Hi Susan!

The houses look great! Thanks for posting them. I was elated to receive one of yours also which I've posted to my blog.

As an FYI, you may have the houses from Gerdie and myself reversed. Mine is actually the 2nd house in the 1st row, not the 4th one.

It is so exciting to see all of these beauties together! I'm thrilled to have been part of this project. Now if they'll only cross the border and get into Canada!! Thanks for posting them all.
