The Valley Gals Are At It Again!!!

Once a month, several of us artsy gals taking turns meeting at each others' houses and do some creating!

The hostess picks the activity, whether it be an area of her own expertise, or a new talent we would like to add to our artsy resumes!!!

So far, we have tackled wool felting, card making, upcycled china pedestals, hypertufas, and crazy quilting.

Meeting at Bobbi's house today, we were creating autumn themed centerpieces.

It is fun to create, commiserate, share life stories, laugh, and just be together- with lunch afterwards, of course!!!! So much talent, creativity, wisdom, and life experience around a small table..........

From left-Vicki, Bobbi (hostess this month) and Julie

Bobbi, Julie, and Susan setting up

Judy, unpacking her supplies

Decisions, decisions, Susan- will this look good?

Hard at work

Judy's finished piece

Mine's done- for my daughter's new apartment

Vicki decided to add everyone's photo to her phone list, so our lovely faces will pop up when we call her- now, I just need her cell phone number!!!! Ooops!

Everyone's working hard - except for the photographer (me) and Vicki, trying to get Bobbi's photo just right for her cell phone!!!

Julie, mulling over her gorgeous creation in a vintage box

Back side of Julie's and no, she was NOT quite done!!!!

Susan's - the art of placing a ribbon takes careful thought

Judy's is done - TA-DA!!!!

Even the box of supplies looks festively autumnal just as it is!!

Vicki's unique piece of wood, unearthed  by her artistic cowboy son, and dug out of storage, just for the occasion, is gorgeous in person

Delicious eclairs and strawberries followed and equally yummy lunch.

Somehow, I managed to miss photographing Bobbi's masterpiece centerpiece- SORRY!!

                                                Another fun get together!!!

Next month, will be at my house, where I will teach the "fine art" of making chocolate, long stemmed roses!
