Veterans in the Kitchen . . .

Last Thursday evening's "ATC Workshop & Swap" was another exciting gathering of extremely talented people.  With everyone's busy schedules we were missing several people, but that didn't stop the creativity that was still flowing strong with themes of "Remembering Our Veterans" and "In the Kitchen".  As usual, those that were able to come were ready to show off and share their artistic talents, so that once again we definitely weren't disappointed in the results . . . just take a look for yourself.  Better yet, if you haven't already paid a visit to our ATC Gallery, this is a must-do because photos just cannot do justice to these fantastic mini works of art!

TOP ROW:  "Gingerbread Cookies", Terri Durst; "My Dad", Mimi Lawrence;
"War Posters from Home", Charmaine Conway; "Our Fly Boys", Sherrie Moore; Remembering out Veterans", Deborah Schinzel
BOTTOM ROW: "Nor Shall Their Story Be Forgotten", Charlotte Fern;
"Thank You for Your Service", Jeanette Lee; "Jammin'!", Nicole Durst
Stop by & 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, December 12th . . . when the monthly themes will be "Olde Saint Nick" or "Winter Trees".  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!

In our last Workshop, we were given a new "Challenge" to share in this month's Workshop . . . what can you create on a MOO Card?   Even smaller than an ATC at only 1-1/8" x 2-3/4", Moo Cards or Mini Moo Cards, were originally created from people's Flickr photos.  These cards became so popular that folks started making their own artwork, and they are now traded the same way as ATCs.  Be sure to watch for the exciting results in our next Blog Post!

In addition, we were also given a new "Challenge" for our first Workshop & Swap of the New Year ~ create a "Fascinator Hat"!   For each of those who take part, each Challenge is voluntary and the "rules" are easy ~ just create 1 Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . embellishments, paints, papers, stencils . . . whatever strikes your fancy!  Watch for the final results of this fun Challenge in our January Workshop & Swap!

Upcoming Months -  Watch for new Themes for 2014 coming soon!
