Think Big in A Small Way for May!

Once again it was our monthly "ATC Workshop & Swap" last Thursday evening.  Where does the month go!  As for all the months before, this month was no exception as far as creativity!  Everyone created beautiful ATCs in one of their favorite themes, "Vintage Mother's Day" or "Cook's Choice! (Anything Goes)", and everyone went to town to show off and share their special talents and favorite techniques.  Most everyone went with the "Cook's Choice" theme, and as always, it was amazing to see all the different ideas and designs that everyone came up with!
TOP ROW:  "Queen Bee", Deborah Schinzel; "Ways of Travel ", Jeanette Lee;
"Not So Vintage Mother's Day", Mary Patrick; "Bee Yourself", Nicole Durst; "It's OK to be Flawed & Fabulous", Mimi Lawrence; "Vintage Housewives", Sharon Van Dussen
MIDDLE ROW: "VIVA Las Vegas!", Janis Bush; "Bee Happy", Terri Durst;
"Bugs", Donna Anderson; "Rusty Rita", Rita Blocksom
BOTTOM ROW: "Choice", Charlotte Fern; "Gelli Arts Fun", Cheryl Wildman;
"Wonders of Metal", Charmaine Conway; "Vintage Mother's Day", Lyla Hagerty
Come in & check out these & all of the fantastic works of art
in our ever expanding "ATC Gallery"!
For those who missed this month's workshop, make your plans now to join in the fun next month.  Mark your calendars & save the date . . . Thursday, June 13th . . . when the monthly themes will be "Send in the Clowns!" or "Games People Play".  Start “thinking big in a small way" and we'll see you then at this fun NO COST workshop.  From experienced to novice . . . you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about for yourself!  Just create 14 ATCs using the monthly themes . . . all the same or each one different . . . then come and share with others in a true workshop atmosphere. Or just come and see what's going on with other artists, ask questions, share information, have fun, and become inspired!

Remember to save the date . . .
the second Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 8:00pm . . .
we look forward to seeing you there!
The group is growing, but there's always room for more!

As an added bonus, we were given another "Challenge" for our May Swap ~ "Altered Puzzle Pieces"!  We were each asked to create  Altered Puzzle Piece for "Show & Tell" to show off our "altering" talents.  Beginning with a large puzzle piece (children's puzzles work best) and embellishing to our heart's content, everyone who participated came up with truly beautiful works of art.  It's hard to believe in their previous lives, these were actually puzzle pieces!  Watch for a separate post coming soon to see all the results of this fun Challenge!

Upcoming Months -
   July 11th ~ "Go Fly a Kite!" or "Under the Sea"
    August 8th ~ "Sweets, Cakes & Candy!" or "It's About Time!"

We look forward to seeing everyone at this fun and exciting NO COST workshop! Call (480) 821-3758 for more details or information and let your imaginations & creative juices flow!
(If you can't make the workshop, but still want to take part in the Swaps, call and let us know.  We'll be your "Swapper"!  We'd still love to have you participate!)
