December 16, 2010

Members Present: Betty, Lynda, Joanne, Sandy, Karen, Michele, & Lois

White Elephant Holiday Party
We gathered at El Azteca in Appleton and had quite a lot of fun. As always the White Elephants are a hit. Everybody got one and I think a few will be back next year. We didn’t discuss much business, but we did discuss a donation to the Menasha Public Library and whether or not we will be able to continue meeting there in 2011. As of January we will still be at the library.

Dues are due!
2011 dues are due at the March meeting. It’s $5 for e-mail newsletters and $10 for snail mail newsletters.

2011 Challenge Project
If you recall we discussed three alternatives for a group challenge.
 Color Chip Design
 Continuous Line
 Fractured Photo
No matter which we choose, when put together, each finished piece will demonstrate our differences and our unity as a group. Examples of the formats can be viewed on the CiC Yahoo group website under photos. Check for the names listed above. This will be part of January’s agenda.

The very first photo at the top of the post shows boxes beaded by my friend Lindi.
