Last night was the first Design Team Meeting. All the gals there were very sweet, energetic and in high creative gear. It was great to finally meet all the ladies and to put faces to names. Turns out, there were two ladies that I already knew; Rhonda and Rene'. It was great to see them again. Everyone was so nice and came from all different parts of Houston. What a creative group of ladies.
I confess that I had a bit of a rocky start at first. After having been at work all day and in left brain mode it took me a while to shift gears and go into right brain creative mode. It took me about 30 minutes or so but I finally found my groove and was able create.
The project Beth had for us was tons of fun. We got to make some really cute Christmas Ornaments for the Junkie Christmas Tree. Beth had a bunch of great stuff for us to work with. Paints, acrylic, chipboard, paper, buttons, bling, ribbon, glitter papers, decorative trim, styrofoam balls and die cuts. It was so much fun to just play and to see everyone working their own distinctive mojo. The results were awesome! Drats! My camera died before I could take more pictures. (note to self.....bring better camera with full battery to next meeting)
Our assignments are going to be a great challenge. Beth and Lisa hand selected items for each of us; so each of our packages were very different. We will be creating two 12 x 12 layouts using some great papers and embellishments. Acrylic, fabric and paper ribbons, flowers, and chipboard will be so much fun to work with and will stretch our imaginations.
Our assignments are due December 1st; whew, it is going to be a quick turn around. It's a good thing I am off the rest of the week! I would show you the papers and embellishments, but shhhhhhhhh it's a secret! You will have to wait for the final products. I will keep you posted on my progress though!
Until next time.
