Inspiring Ladies

I think I have mentioned before, but Krissi and I, and now Sacred Momma, have joined a group of insanely talented ladies. They call themselves Mixed Media Artists Of Northern California. They meet monthly at Beverly's Unique Scrapbooking. The fourth Sunday of each month, these ladies from all over Northern California get together to share, create, tutor and fellowship. I always look forward to this meeting and I have not missed one meeting since we joined 4 months ago. This month's meeting was extra special because Corky, a fellow craftista I met on the Crafty Chica cruise, drove in from Santa Clara to take part in the "Exploding Box" tutorial. Along with the tutorial, we shared our monthly "challenge' that happened to have the theme of "Houses". As usual, these ladies hit it out of the ball park with their creativity. I just had to share pictures!

Next month, our challenge is altering a checkerboard and yours truly will be giving a "Paper Bag" book make and take tutorial.

Ok, peecture time.............. All these creations are made by the wonderful Artists in my group. I was just snapping away, and I wish I would have wrote their names down to give them proper credit. I'll be pimping this blog to them, so hopefully they can stop by and take credit!

This is the inside of an altered cook book made by one of the Artists.
These are miniature houses made out of chip board. I believe she is going to attach them to pin backs and make broaches out of them. there were Awesome!
Class waiting to start.

Look how small her houses are! Fantastic!
