A small group of members braved the cold, rainy weather and gathered for the meeting at Beads by Design. With Stephanie’s guidance, we used several resources to help answer the question beadmakers all sometimes ask ourselves: “What shall I make?”

Stephanie brought a bag of ideas, quite literally! The large bag was filled with items she had collected from various sources, including a local “dollar” store. There were socks with patterns, foldable paper fans with fancy designs, pictures, stuffed toys and small toy animals…you get the idea! We talked about how to find new color combinations, textures and shapes from ordinary things we might see every day. We also searched through albums of ISGB Gathering Postcards from around the country. We experimented by sketching some of our ideas on paper - always a good way to spark creativity - brainstorming during much of the evening.

 With threatening weather, we concluded the successful meeting a bit early and went home with our heads filled with fresh ideas and newfound enthusiasm!
