Happy ONe Year Anniversary!!!
Since we've not had a scheduled meet-up in a while- I'm hoping that you can all make it, or at least stop by for a while and celebrate our group's 1st Birthday!
Funkyard Coffee and Art in Fountain Square has a cool private courtyard in back with plenty of umbrella'd tables and seating for at least 30 people, so- assuming the weather cooperates, should be a lovely spot to meet. (Even if there's rain, extra tabes have been added indoors, also)
Feel free to bring a journal to work on, if you'd like- OR if you're a new member, or new to journaling- just come and socialize and maybe check out some other members projects- no pressure!!
Note: If you want to bring a project to work on, note that the space is all round patio tables, so you may not want to bring a 'giant' supply stash =-)
But, even if you don't work on a project while there, I encourage folks to bring a sample of a journal that you'd be willing to let folks look at, especially if they are new to art journaling!
I just wanted to provide a location to "meet & greet" and hopefully meet new members, too!!! According to meet-up we have 75 members- but I've only met around 20 so far- so HOPEFULLY we can get more of you to come out of hiding and meet us!! =-)
Funkyard sells coffee/espresso style drinks(including a verrrry yummy decadent espresso milkshake)- in addition to some other beverages, and a small variety of dessert items, and have recently added ice cream to their offerings in 5-6 unique flavors.
There is free street parking on Sundays, and there is also a public parking lot just off Shelby around the corner from Funkyard. which should also be adjacent to the back gate entrance of courtyard (has a privacy fence around it).
Thanks to all our regular "Journal Junkies" who've made it such a warm and inviting group to be around and looking forward to meeting many new members and planning more fun events in our 2nd year!
Hope to see you on Sunday the 22nd!(or at another journal meet-up soon!)
