On Saturday, January 21, we had another exhilarating Art Play Date. In attendance:

  • Karen
  • Annette
  • Nyebbi
  • Ellie
  • Jilly
  • Chris
  • Kathy
  • Jessica
  • Nakita


I brought donuts from DD to celebrate my (mumble)th birthday (it was a BIG one) and we happily munched and chatted and got our creative on. Some of the topics covered and projects in progress:

  • methods of binding books, including the sewn-over strap binding that our pal Marcy McKenzie is famous for. Nakita brought in enough composition book journals to cover a full table and was pulling the binding so she can turn the covers into a book of their own.
  • Jim from Creator Hub came buy and told us about what’s happening with that group, as well as what’s going on with FC Public Media (they’re looking for content!)
  • gelli printing (which Karen, Chris and I were doing and showing)
  • crochet (Nyebbi)
  • “Mommy Made a Bad Choice” project, in which Ellie was sewing 100 pennies on jump rings to a tshirt for her 1st grader’s 100-day celebration
  • polymer clay figures (Jilly)
  • collage (Kathy, Annette)
  • journals and watercolor (Jessica)
