Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year



Photos from the November Meeting
Show and Tell

Rosie brought creations her grandsons have made during their visits. The three stump dolls
are beautifully displayed in a shadowbox designed by Rosie.

Rosie also brought several of her latest bell jar
ornaments. This one contains two skaters.

This ornament features two tiny figures
on a sled. So cute!

Suzanne R. displayed a darling curly-headed
doll. Love her sense of color.

Suzanne also brought this Santa for
the book store window display next month.

Prolific Zanaib always amazes us with a wealth of
items she completes each month... while working
full time at her day job!

This is a close up of some of her paper ornaments
made from book pages.

More of Zanaib's ornaments and her fiber necklaces.
Zanaib will be the featured artist for the book store
window in February. She has invited Phoebes and
friends to contribute altered books, and thanks to
Christine Delgadillo's October workshop,
many fabulous items will be on display.
The deadline for submitting books is January 15.

Sally brought to the meeting all the items we needed to make
button flowers for our "make and take." The stems can be
wrapped with floral tape and leaves may be added to make
a button bouquet.

Marcella brought examples from her collection of doll pins, some
made by well-known artists, including the late Susanna Oroyan.

Elizabeth never ceases to amaze us with her creativity.
Her zombie ballerina for the window display is based
on a character from the children's book, Zombelina.
Who knew Zombie's could be so adorable!

Happy Thanksgiving



Suzanne, Mary and Stephanie are hard at work on their books. There was
100% positive feedback after the class was over... everyone had such a great time
and we all learned so much!

Pame Rose works so fast, she finished most of her
altered book before the class was over.

Christine brought one of her completed books as an example.
She was so generous with the items she supplied in the class kit. And,
she brought many other wonderful items which we could and eagerly did purchase.

Daisy and Ophelia are hard at work... everyone loved the class so
much and were so focused on the project, there was hardly any talking.
