A Brown Paper Bag Zine

After I had The Brown Paper Bag Swap, Lori Garver, contacted me and asked me if she could interview me regarding the Brown Paper Bag Swaps because she was making a zine. Lori was so sweet and sent me one of the finished zine's. She did an amazing job and so I wanted to share it with everyone.

The front and back cover

The contents, introduction, some beautiful flowers Lori made and part of the interview with me.

the rest of the interview with me and a picture of the roses my sister Robyn made for me, a wax paper art doll that Lori made and some different types of paper that Lori made.

A paper bead and a recipe for Brown Sugar Cookies, Fun Facts, links and Thank you's.

Lori did a really nice job on her Brown Paper Bag Zine and I really appreciate her including me and sending me a copy. She really does amazing work!

Oh this is so neat. I just love this and you deserver recognition. I have never heard of this. I hope you are doing well. Everytime I am in my sewing room I think of you because of my little Annie doll that you made me is always looking down as I work.
