Hi everyone,

Balletbon is coming into town, and I wanted to see if anyone would like to get together for an ATC make/trade on Saturday, Feb 19th at my house in Clarkston, MI from 1-pm - 5pm. If you are interested, please post here and let me know!

I'll have some snacks (cinnamon rolls, maybe a veggie tray) and will have tables setup for us to create. Bring whatever supplies you'd like to work with (and I can also supply basic materials).

I will also have some pendants/charms to trade :) :) :)

Attending:

Sounds like fun - I'll try to make it. My life situation is in a bit of a turmoil at the moment and I might be beginning a move that weekend, but I don't know for sure yet. And I'd be moving up your way back to Davison, if I do move! I'll let you know more when I know more about the housing availability.

Hi Dana,
I'd love to come. I have tickets to an event that night but might be able to do both depending upon when you get together is starting. I might even try to sell my tickets if it comes down to that. So what are you thinking about a start time?

Camilla,

Davison is pretty close to here--north of me by about 15 min maybe? Anyways, let me know if you'd like to come!

I take 75 to exit 91 from Detroit area - and then M-15 into Davison (that stretch is about 30 min from the exit to Mom's driveway!).

What time were you planning to have your gathering?

Let's do 1pm - 5pm! Then that way Lunamoth can get to her concert that evening still. We'll plan on wrapping up before dinner. Sound good?

Ok, I am pretty much right on your way. You get off of I-75 at exit 91, then take it north about 2 miles to Rattalee Lake Road (this is near that big Bridgewater church, before Ortonville). Then you take that to Allen road (about .5 miles) and go up Allen road (.5 miles) and walah!

Once I get a "who is coming" list, I will PM everyone directions to my house (that are a little more specific than this).

If anyone wants to bring snacks, those are welcome too. I will most likely make some cinnamon rolls and will have several varieties of tea available!

Ok, great! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Does anyone have a nut allergy? I want to make cinnamon rolls, but I usually put nuts in them...

I don't have a nut allergy, so I'm fine with whatever you use.

Hope not, because I'm planning on bringing Choc. Chip cookies with walnuts in them. Oh my sweet tooth is looking forward to Saturday, plus doing lots of art. I thought I might bring along some cards to swap, also my journal (loose leaf) if anyone wants to make a page for me either there or at home later. I'll make you something in return.

Cinnamon rolls are in the oven, we'll have two kinds of iced tea, fresh-squeezed limeade, and coffee/hot tea.

I do have two cats, but I can keep them away from our room. I also have a bird, but you won't see him, lol.

Using the word "estate" makes me feel like a Victorian lady or something!

Lini really did a great job for her first figure drawing class. I think it really helped that she enjoyed the subject matter.

Listen Ballet Lady, drawing nude pictures of your SIL is just a little freaky! And to think that Dana encouraged it. Penny and I were shocked...we had no idea what we were getting into.

By the way, the cinnamon rolls made by Dana topped with frosting made by Bonnie were so yummy. I brought two home and we had them for breakfast this morning. My husband suggests I should learn to make those. He should learn to make them!!!:idea:

Bonnie tried to get us all drunk and I was more than willing to participate. What was the name of the wine again??? I really do want to know so I can buy a big jug of it. It was tasty.

Hey, my icons showed up after another five times of shutting down the computer. Strange!
Dana and Bonnie, everything was excellent -especially learning to water color with models available! heehee!

Reuben says "When are you ladies coming back?"

He's also asking for better working conditions.

I had a wonderful afternoon. You were all so nice and welcoming to a n00bie - I felt very comfortable and enjoyed making new friends. Dana, it is so awesome that I am moving closer to you! It took me about 25 minutes after I left your house to get to my new place. Not a bad drive at all! Straight down M-15 all the way :) Once I am settled and no longer running between two homes, we will definitely have to get together for art often! Especially if Reuben is available to model again! Tell him he was very inspirational!
