Welcome to your exchange group this year!!!

As a group you can decide on a theme or choose to be surprised. It's totally up to you guys!! I always ask each group member to say HI and share 1 fun or interesting thing that they did this year. It's a great way to break the ice and get folks chatting.

Hi Christen, Caroline & Robin!

I'm Beth. This is my 2nd Blu Penny ornament exchange. Last year was fun, so I'm looking forward to this one.

I can't think of a fun thing that stands out that I did this year, but I love life and the group name "Fruitcakes" fits me to a tee. Laughing

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to participate in the ornament exchange this year!

A little about me ... I'm Director of Publishing for Stampington & Company, so you can say I'm up to my eyeballs in wonderful crafty things every day. Nothing stands out as being particularly fun from this year, but I'm always laughing and having a good time, so the Fruitcakes is a total fit for me.

Do we want to choose any sort of theme, or material, or just go for it?

Hi Christen! What a great job you have! I own a sign shop in a little resort town and I'm an artist who paints whimsical, funky art.

Do you guys wanna just wing it and do our own thing? I was thinking of starting mine this weekend and Caroline hasn't checked in, yet. I'm excited to get my hands messy and play with my craft supplies. Very Happy

PostSubject: Hello Creative Ladies!   Sat Dec 01, 2012 5:55 pm

Hi creative ladies and many thanks to Cindy Ann for connecting us! Sorry I have not been in touch...wild few weeks here in the studio and with family and oh yes, it's December! I have been teaching 2 mixed media classes here in Charlotte so I have already completed my four decoupaged ornaments for you and will mail to you by the deadline. I used my own Christmas patterns on the ornaments. Would love to know a little bit about each of you and how you ended up here in the ornament exchange.
I am a licensed artist and mother of four in Charlotte, NC. My brand is Multiple Blessings and I feel so fortunate to design mostly faith based and inspirational products for 12 manufacturers.
Looking forward to seeing what you all made and saying hello here.
Christmas blessings to each of you and your families!

Hi Caroline! Nice to meet you!

I am familiar with your brand and follow what you're up to, as I am an aspiring licensing wanna-be, learning all I can from those of you who generously share your journey. Thanks so much for that, and your art is beautiful.

Following talented artists is how I found this ornament exchange last year. Our group was a chatty one and so fun!

I have started on my ornaments and will get them mailed by the deadline. I'm having a great time so far. Smile
