Changes and Excitement and HELP!

Well, the ASBA Conference is on its way to Denver, and there are 204 registrants! Amazing!

We're so excited to present our Botanical Art with Altitude event for the ASBA. And so excited to find so many people will be here to share it.

So, to accommodate upcoming Conference needs, the following changes have been made:

The August Member Meeting is CANCELLED. It WAS scheduled for Labor Day weekend, which will limit participation.

It has been MOVED to SEPTEMBER 6, 2014 at 10 AM, at Vanessa Martin's home. She and Becky Hall have been working over the summer to create the favor for each registered participant at the Conference. Now, they need help. At this meeting, members will help sand, stamp and finish (spray coat) the items in Vanessa's back yard.

Come in old clothes, bring a sack lunch, roll up your sleeves and jump in! The favors are made from beetle-kill wood, and you're gonna love them, but we don't want to spoil the surprise for attendees by posting the details here. If work is not finished on the 6th, we'll be looking for folks to help on the 7th. Job needs to be finished up, and we can't do it without you!

Please contact Vanessa HERE to let her know you'll be there, and for driving instructions if you need them.

THANK YOU in advance. This will be fun, and you will love the items we're working on.
