'Tis the Season!

Last evening's "ATC Workshop & Swap" was another great example of what extremely talented artists will create when thinking big in a small way!  With this month's themes of "Winter Trees" and "Olde St. Nick", it was obvious just how talented this group of artists is, and as usual, we definitely weren't disappointed with the results.  Full of the Holiday spirit, each card was simply a masterpiece . . . take a look for yourself!  Better yet, if you haven't already paid a visit to our expanding ATC Gallery, stop in and check it out because this is an absolute must-do as photos just cannot do justice to these fantastic mini works of art!
TOP ROW:  "On the Naughty List!", Nicole Durst; "Winter Trees", Kristen Johnston;

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 in the New Year when we experiment with a new format.  Mark your calendars & save the date . . . Thursday, January 9th . . . when the monthly themes will be expanded to 4 categories . . .  "Ladies Shoes", "Recipes on ATCs", "Yin & Yang", or "Femme Fatale".  Pick just 1, or mix-and-match from 2, 3, or all 4 categories, but 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 12 ATCs using the monthly themes (keeping 1 for yourself & bringing 11 to the Swap) . . . all the same or each one different . . . then come and share with others in a true workshop atmosphere. Or just stop in 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!

Don't forget to watch next month for the results of our first "Challenge" for the New Year ~ creating a "Fascinator Hat"!   Each Challenge is voluntary and the "rules" are easy ~  for everyone who takes part, create 1 Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . embellishments, paints, papers, stencils . . . whatever strikes your fancy!  The outcome is sure to be amazing so stay tuned!
