I Made 37 Santas this year. All ready for gift giving to family and friends.

The title I wrote on each one is "Santas New Outfit"

I started  making Santas in 1985 and have done it every year since, (28 yrs.)  except for 1981. That year was a Bad one with the death of one son and the serious long hospitalization of another.

Fellow Harrisonville Fine Arts member Hope (right foreground) and I took Christmas Tiles for the area health care facility to decorate. They dipped the eraser end of the pencil in bright colors to put ornaments on trees an wreaths.

Even though it was hard for some to hold a pencil they enjoyed the experience!

We always have 2 full tables + ready to work on an art project.

I always bring decorations for our Art Leagues Christmas Party. This year decided to use some of my blue bottle collection as well as the Chenille Snowmen from another year.

We are not a large group but we stay active in art projects

Decided to use my Blue Bottle tree instead of the evergreen one I usually bring

More of the members. Our president of longstanding is right in the center.

Our outgoing president for one year is picture in the center.

Our first Christmas party of the year was Sorority. This is always the setting for our Christmas picture!  Friends for a lifetime!
