January weather kept us from holding our January 3rd Transitional Board Meeting, but February 14th should be a bit more accommodating. Of course, you never know about Texas weather! We had 70 degrees yesterday and today we have wind chills in some places that are below freezing!
The February 14th Board Meeting is making up the Transitional Board Meeting that was weather-delayed. In addition, we will be covering the budget. Since these two items will run the meeting a bit long, we will not have a Paint In afterwards. We look forward to seeing everyone at the March General Meeting/Workshop.
At the March General Meeting, we will hand out the youth backpacks for the Society of Decorative Painting initiative. Decorated backpacks from chapters across the nation will be delivered to the SDP Conference in Wichita, Kansas and ultimately distributed to children facing relocation due to a family crisis. Information on when backpacks must be completed and returned will be handed out at the General Meeting.
It's 2019 - and what an exciting year ahead for the Bluebonnet Chapter! We have a new board (see the updates under Chapter Information. We have a great slate of classes lined out that includes acrylic, watercolor, a new fabric dye, chalk, and more! We are thrilled to have a seminar coming in July (25 & 26 - mark your calendar!) with Sandy McTier. As the year progresses, we will highlight upcoming events here in the blog. We will also post a number of articles about decorative painting, creativity, and special posts from members. If you are not a member, we hope that you will consider becoming one soon. Membership information is located under Chapter Information.
Happy New Year!
