Let the Christmas Book Begin

We were all a buzz here on Tuesday, July 14th. Kat brought the paper bags, everyone brought something to share and we all dug in and sorted out paper and pieces to start our Christmas Paper Bag book.

I think we all got a good jump on the book and will come back in September to complete. I know I have heard from a few that they are busy working on their books at home enjoying the vintage christmas look.

2 new artists came to play. Welcome June and Chris.

Here's some pics to give you the flavor.

I mentioned people brought different things to share: Kat the bags, Bet lovely vintage magazines and more, Sally scads of paper and a CD of vintage empherma, Elena paper and acetates, Maryam planned ahead and left us a box of lovelies, If I missed you sorry, if you didn't bring anything don't'll get your turn :} Jane made a little kit for each of us to make a Christmas ornament maybe to place in or on the book. Very cute....thanks Jane.

Christmas in July!

Next Art Meetup

Tuesday, July 14th

We will be starting our Christmas Paperbag book at our July meetup.

We have a basket full of Vintage and Vintage looking items for us to begin to assemble our book. Kat is bringing the bags and some of you have already contributed to the "basket of goodies".

Some have asked "what can I bring" or "I can't find anything vintage". I completely understand and I say "just come and have fun getting started."

We will finish up the Christmas paperbag book in September. This will give you time to find other things to add and share. You will take home 3 CD's of Vintage Clipart to print out for your book. I am sure we will be inspired and think of lots of things we can do after we get together in July.

I hope you can make it. I know that Melanie and Maryam cannot attend but I'll be assembling two additional books for them (with your help) so they won't fall behind.

We're also lucky because Elena will be bringing her Canon Photo Printer and the great photo paper to demo the printer for us. After you see it in action, you'll want one! I did! I ordered mine and it's on it's way.

To see pictures of the Christmas Paperbag book check out below on the post from Thursday, May 21, 2009.

ALSO, if you exchanged a magazine or book at last meetup, bring'um back and maybe bring some others to exchange. Anyone that has art books or Magazines they would like to exchange with others bring THEM!!!

See you next Tuesday, Happy Holidays!
