School Days vs. Fairy Tales . . .

The fun and creativity at this month's monthly "ATC Workshop & Swap" last night was absolutely overflowing where the themes were "Vintage School Days" or "Fairy Tales & Nursery Rhythms".  Everyone came ready to show off and share their talents, and the results were absolutely amazing . . . as usual!  If you haven't already, come in for a visit to our EXPANDING ATC Gallery because the photo just does not do these fantastic mini works of art justice!
TOP ROW:  "Scrambled Eggs Anyone?", Nicole Durst; "The 3 Rs", Sherrie Moore;
"Nursery Rhymes", Kristen Johnston; "Brand New Crayons", Mimi Lawrence
SECOND ROW: "School Days", Jeanette Lee; "Off With Her Head!", Charlotte Fern;

THIRD ROW: "'I Just Want a Friend,' said the Spider!" Terri Durst;

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, October 10th . . . when the monthly themes will be "The Wild, Wild West" or "Things With Wings".  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 15 ATCs using the monthly themes (keeping 1 for yourself & bringing 14 to the Swap) . . . 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!

We were also given another new "Challenge" for November ~ create a "MOO Card"!  Even smaller than an ATC at only 1-1/8" x 2-3/4", Moo Cards or Mini Moo Cards, were first created from people's Flickr photos.  The cards became so popular that folks started making their own artwork, and the cards are now traded pretty much the same way as ATCs.  Each Challenge is voluntary and the "rules" are easy ~ each participant creates 1 Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . paints, papers, stencils . . . whatever strikes their fancy!  Watch for the final results of this fun Challenge in the November Workshop & Swap!

Upcoming Months -
    November 14th ~ "Remembering Our Veterans" or "In the Kitchen"
   December 12th ~ "Olde St. Nick" or "Winter Trees"
Watch for new Themes for 2014 coming soon!
