DECEMBER MEETING - ART PARTY AND SALE!


Let's get this party started!
We had a great turn out for our December meeting which was an art party and sale.

Each year we have a members' sale where members can bring in "slightly used" or new art items for sale.  We thought it would be a good idea to have the sale in December, when we are all in a buying mood, thinking of Christmas gifts for ourselves or other artists we know.  It was a success!  We had a really good turn out.  In addition to our members' sale, we had another sale of Mary Marxen's art supplies.

We played a game that helped break the ice and allowed us to get to know each other better.  The photo below shows some of the members signing each other's game sheets.

At prior meetings we had sign up sheets for food - and boy oh boy - did we have food!  We filled the long table in the kitchen with "entree" and appetizer items - but later when I went to check it was all gone - just a few crumbs remained!  We put desserts on the table in the main room and I just couldn't resist, shall we say, 3 or maybe 4 (or, gee, maybe more!) of them.

All in all, we had a wonderful morning of fund raising, fun and games, great food and camaraderie!

Games, food and fun!
