Holiday Pot Luck and Swap

Well, I believe a good time was had by all.
Roll call:
Robert and I
Debbie Beasley
Hal Janice and Hal Paden
Karen Crouch
Kee Wild-Ramsing
Gail Marcus
Debra Pyeatt

The food was yummy and the swap was a blast! I scored a fab pair of goodies from Debbie Beasley! Everyone agreed the swap should have an encore later in the year. Our next meeting needs to be scheduled for January. I propose we have a round table discussion on "Artistic Integrity and her ugly step sister Copycat".

CFM Holiday Party and Swap!!!!

Hey folks!! Debra Pyeatt and I have conferred....Let's party!
Meet us at Independent Art Company's Wabi Sabi Warehouse for a pot luck and charm swap! Everyone bring two charms you've made out of your favorite jewelry making materials, copper, silver, beads, polymerclay, PMC, swarovski, wire, pebbles, pop tops.... go for it! We'll all swap. Wrap your charm in gift wrap and we'll number them and then draw numbers. Sound good? That way your charm "set" could be earrings if the winner so chooses. Don't agonize over them, just have fun! And bring a dish too.
I'm excited!!!!
