New Groups

Good Morning All,

Finally I am getting my act together and am going to get the new groups up and running. This year I am bringing back a favorite, birthday club, and adding a new one, Round robin Journal.

First up: Round Robin Altered Book

For those who haven't done one of these before this is how it works; You will supply your own book (a sewn binding is best) and to start you will do the front and back, inside sign in page and the first layout. Then each month your book will be passed along and you will receive some one in the clubs book along with a theme. You will have one month to do the two page spread and bring it back for the next month. At the end of the cycle your book will be returned to you as a finished book.

Second up: Trading Cards

You will create a work of art on a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" card for every member of the group with the theme provided. You will mail these out monthly to the group members.

Third up: Birthday Club

A list will be compiled with members who would like to share birthday cards. In previous years these have been handmade cards, this isn't a requirement this year, although handmade is most pleasant to receive. You will be require to send out birthday cards to every one in the club.

Fourth up: Round Robin Journal

This is a so cool one I seen a group doing and I thought we should give it a try. You create your journal in any style you choose. For the first month you will write in your journal as many times as you feel led too. The next month will start the round robin and your journal will be on its journey around the group. In the journal you receive you will be expected to post as many times as you feel led too sharing thoughts, ideas, and inspiration. Please feel free to add doodling and any form of art work to make your posts pleasing to the reader. It is in hopes that though this journal we will all become closer and more in tune with each other.

Fifth up: Faithbooking

OH my gosh I am way excited about this one. You will start a scrapbook....your choice size, design, everything about it is yours. Each month we will get together and discuss our month and create a scrapbook page around one of the scriptures that spoke to us this last month. In doing so , I am hoping we will all draw closer to God and to each other.

Anyone may join these groups, if you are a long distant member you will just have to mail the books etc. Please take your commitment seriously, if you plan on starting please plan on finishing. I know how hard it is sometimes to keep up ( as I am behind myself in last years trading cards, they will be coming ladies very soon) if you fall behind please make it a priority to get caught up.
ok enough said....please email me with your desire to join all or any of the groups. I will then decide on a date for all of us to meet and get started.

Waiting anxiously to hear from you,
