October meeting - dolls and jelly!

I took some dolls I had found at a trash and treasure sale to Cathy. Cos I know she likes them. Here's one of them:

And here's another one. I'm sort of glad I don't own it now.
Then Lizzie brought these, more cool dolls!

Michelle works on her journal, while Chris samples an apple muffin. She doesn't like junk food, so they must have been awesome.

I had a play with a Gelli Plate I got got from Michelle at Picture to Page. I was thinking it might be a bit of a hassle to use such a cool thing. But once I got started - well, it turned out to be so simple to get going, and no big deal to clean up. I made some cool stuff! These are backgrounds for the next step, whatever that is.

October - come and meet!

Hey Melbourne stampers, the weather's getting warmer. We all know what that means. Time to start the Christmas cards! Or the decorations. Or just round off your art journal for the year, and get the next one ready.

And here's a good idea - come to stamp club to do it!

We're meeting this Saturday. I'll be up to my ELBOWS in cool new stencils and paints and inks and stuff that I got at Michelle's awesome Mixed Media Art stand at Picture to Page a couple of weeks ago. I was her right hand lady for one of the days. Well, actually her sister was her right hand lady, but I was the eager helper. Bendigo show in March next year!

Hmm, did I get all my plugs in?

Nope, there's one more. Naomi (of Paperific fame) is running a cool event next year - Paper Art Tarts. This promises to be a different sort of a day out. Not just a shopping day, this is more of a doing day. Oh wow.

So, why not join us at SERS for a completely relaxed stamping day, where nobody tries to sell you anything. Well, sometimes someone brings in a box of preloved goodies, but that's pretty exciting, actually. Saturday 25 October, see you there.
