We3 Art preparations

Normally We3 meet in my basement studio, but we will be making Christmas cards this time and I think we will need more room to spread out and use a lot of paper friendly supplies. Since my paper, paint, ribbon, stencils, stamps, etc. are all in my main floor craft space, I decided to set up in my living room.

Now this room is so small it won't even hold a couch, but I measured and decided it would work for one day.

Before I set up the tables in the living room, I made stuffed peppers. All that is needed now is to cook them.
Next I baked some cookies I had prepared earlier and placed in the refrigerator.

The peanut butter cookies are ready for dessert.

Late in the afternoon, I set up the two tables I feel we will need for this project. We may have to refine the seating when the gals get here, but for now, I'm calling it ready.

Each of us gets a UHU glue stick and permanent glue roller. We will share a Twist & Glue and some UHU Tac. I want to thank UHU for providing this for us. Be sure to stop by their blog.

Also on the table are red, green, dark red, and white card stock, a rubber stamp I hope to use, some foam for a technique I hope to create, clear acrylic blocks for unmounted stamps, and a few charms and embellishments.

Although I didn't take any photos, I mowed my yard after I got all this set up. Hopefully I won't be too tired to make cards. All I need to do now is make tea and coffee.

If you have made it this far, We3 are probably now either eating breakfast or busy making Christmas cards. I'll post the results of our efforts tomorrow.
