March 14, 2009 Bookmarks by Nance

Hi clayers! It’s almost time for another fun and interesting poly clay meeting! The next meeting will be **March 14, 2009, 1-4 p.m., at Hobby Lobby in Norman (2417 W. Main, Norman, OK)**. We are truely blessed to have such skilled members in our group. Every class taught by our wonderful members has been exceptional. And speaking of wonderful members, are own red headed Scottish lass, Nance, with be teaching us how to make book marks. She says we will be making four different kinds of bookmarks, and the same supplies will work with all of them. In Nance’s own word, the supply list is as follows:
Tools: cutters, blades, rollers, work surface, modeling tools, texture plates or stamps, scissors to cut paper.
Supplies: several shades of clay, mica powders, tiny beads or glitter, if desired, Zap-a-Gap glue, (or whatever permanent glue you prefer), ONE metal bookmark sold at HL in the “Findings” area (“S”-shaped, or straight) with a chain and jump ring attached.
Do-Aheads: You might want to draw a design for a 6 inch long bookmark, and bring along some pre-made canes or “button” style thin, round or rectangular decorative pieces…..about 3/4 of an inch wide, and up to three inches long. OR YOU CAN JUST BRING CLAY AND SUPPLIES AND WING IT!
This month is our swap. The winners of the swap in January should bring something for this month’s swap, unless of course, they are brand new baby mama’s and may not be able to attend! The January Swap winners were Sue M. and our own new mother, Angela M.
Everybody be thinking of which books they would like to add to our wonderful library and bring a title or two for the library draw.
I hope to see everyone there!
