Please bring all finished Christmas ornaments to the meeting on Saturday. Craft shows are starting and we want our ornaments to be in some of those shows. We are supporting Ways & Means, which supports the painting group. Thank you so much to those that have already painted and turned in ornaments. Your time, talent and hard work are greatly appreciated.

Ways & Means is also offering lunch for after the meeting on Saturday as well. We will be having Subway 4″ cold cut sandwich, chips and fruit for only $6 (you may pay at the meeting). I am personally loving the meals that are being served after our meetings because it is one less thing I have to worry about. Our Ways & Means chairperson, Vivian Karros is doing a fantabulous (I made that up) job of coming up with ideas for raising money for our paint group. When you see her on Saturday, please give her kuddos on a job well done so far. (We are trying to get her to continue next year, so the more encouragement the better) LOL!!!

Also, if you would like some of your painted pieces to be on display at the Linebaugh Library in Murfreesboro, please bring those pieces to the meeting on Saturday as well. Those will go to Laurie Coates and she will be getting the pieces to the library. I believe that this is a fun and amazing way to display our talents and also to possibly get more people to join our painting group. Thank you to Laurie for this great idea.

It is also time to turn in retreat projects at the meeting on Saturday as well. If you plan to teach a class at retreat, please bring your project along with a color photo and the form (filled out) that was in the newsletter. Projects will be turned in to Betty Hooper, retreat chairperson.

Don’t forget, if you were saving toilet paper inserts for Sandee Lemons to bring those to the meeting as well. Sandee will also be teaching our workshop after the meeting. Get those pieces basecoated with desert sand before coming to the meeting. The line drawing and instructions will be handed out at the meeting.

I am sorry this post is so long but we have lots going on for this meeting. I hope you all don’t mind the reminder. Melissa
