i'm brand new to this concept - but a blog carnival is basically a blog-hosted article (like a magazine article) on a particular topic, with lots of links to other blogs on the same topic. several bloggers can band together to take turns hosting a carnival...and get a conversation going!
so i'm gonna try hosting a carnival on papercrafting - with the first "edition" coming out here on november 5th about making greeting cards or note cards from scraps - paper trimmings, sample swatches, old cards, clippings, etc. an example is the collage card i made from a paper manufacturer's old swatchbook.
if you have ideas or resources for my first article - leave me your comments on this post!
