Help a Child get through the day.
We will be working as a group using the charity pattern "Scribbles", available on Cyndy's web site.  This is a free pattern for anyone in our club or person that wishes to use it for charity purposes. Liz Seibold will draw the faces for those that are not ready for that sort of drawing yet.  If you were fortune enough to come to Artistic Figures in Cloth 2011 then you will find a pint size version of the same pattern.  Copies will be available to Guilded Lilies members at the Jan and Feb meetings.

Don't forget to start a box for the Guilded Lilies Trading Post.  Do you have just a little too much of one thing and would like to share the wealth, trade for new goods or sell some stock off so you can buy some new great stuff. We will swap, trade or sell some of our stash in which we have out grow or studio's will no longer hold.  Clean out the old and bring in some new!

Christmas Party and Doll Exchange 

We had a lot of wonderful dolls exchanged this year.  However we really did not get any pictures of them.  I hope that they are brought to the Jan 2012 meeting, so that you can see them all.  We had a great dinner out and then went to Jody Miller's house to have a lot of laughter, a little wine and to exchange presents.

Winter Wonderland of fun

This past two years the Guilded Lilies have been invited to attend and promote Art Doll Making in one of the most upscale Art shows in Columbus Ohio.  "Winter Fair"  Talking to artist and patrons it was nice to be in a setting were we could really show off our work

 How to Personify anything by Kathryn Walmsley
 We have had Kathryn twice before but she is just one of those teachers you can have over and over again.  She has so much to teach, so much to give and her head is bursting with inspiration.  Beyond that she is one of the best teachers ever.

Here are the starting projects. Just look at Janet's art work.  She started with a wooden hinged box!

Vicki Lamer's scary man with no hands

 Boy did the Guilded Lilies really excel in this class.

 Everyone worked with wooded objects drawn form a bag and then dove into their minds.  We found out that we have some very weird, scary, sweet and bizarre members

Hidden Treasure - a Ribbon Ruching Class
by Cyndy Sieving
The being of a new technique.

Jody Miller

Jovetta Gorrell

 The class was all about the decorating the box and bust with different ruching techniques. Part of the fun of ruching is you can add beads and trinkets as you go.  Above you can see Jovetta has decided to implant eyeballs into her pretty pink ribbon
Janet McMullen

Jean Underwood
Over to top Janet went with her own large box and Jean Underwood got so caught up in the ruching technique that she left the bust off the box.  Way to go Jean thinking outside the box!
