Book Club - May, 2010

Book Club was creatively fun this month. Unfortunately, everyone forgot their camera, but we certainly noticed a new flare amongst our beautiful projects. Even the books we've been choosing have more of a mixed media flavor. With that in mind, the group agreed that our Book Club would continue on that course and be a mixed media book club.

This was our first month at our new location, Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club. The room is spacious, with a large area for creating. Most everyone brought something incredible to share. Our awesome make and take was a 3 panel wall hanging and included papers and embellies.

The group made some unanimous decisions on a few changes:

Pricing: Sign up for a quarter (4 months) and pay $20 per month. You can pay cash, credit card or Paypal. You will be responsible for payment for all four months. If you are unable to attend the meeting, your credit card will be charged and you can pick up your kit at the next meeting. The new quarter begins next month on June 3rd.

Book: We will use the same book for all four months. Currently we are using Delight in the Details by Lisa M. Pace. I got mine at Amazon.

Venue: Meetings will be at the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club on the first Thursday of the month, at 6:30, until further notice. Gee Gee's stamping store and a bead store are both within walking distance.

July's Meeting: Because of 4th of July, our meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 8th.

Swap: The swap for the new quarter is BIRDS and the due date is July 8th. If you haven't already signed up and you would like to be in the swap, please send me an email.

FYI: A new Book Club is starting this month at Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway. This will be a Scrapbook Book Club. We will meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at 6:30. If you would like to be a Charter member of this new club, join us on Wednesday, May 19.

Hope to see you soon!
