Artist Network White Elephant Party meeting

  • Jan 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Sue T's house

Hi All!

Happy New Year! Here's to a great year for all of us!

January's meeting is our annual White Elephant Party.  This year Sue has offered to host it - they have an awesome rec room!  Please RSVP with what you are bringing so we have a nice variety of both food & drinks.  

What is a "White Elephant Party" you ask?  This is your chance to get rid of (at least) 1 thing you have that really bugs you.  Wrap it up nice and pretty and bring it for someone else to take home!  Basically the rules are that we will draw numbers to see the order of who picks gifts, after whoever has #1 chooses their gift and unwraps it, then #2 can either steal the unwrapped gift or choose a wrapped one for themselves.  And so on until the last # does their turn, after that, the #1 person has the opportunity to steal anyone's gift to complete their turn since there was no one for them to steal from when it all started!

Get creative, no one said you can't include more than one item (who only has 1 thing they want to get rid of), remember - eye appeal will get your gift chosen faster!

This month I will be in Cupertino, CA Jan 19-31 for training and to spend a week working in the Apple Store in Palo Alto.  I'm not happy to miss our WEP, I plan on giving Sue something so she can choose for me :-D

Please RSVP so that Sue has an idea of how many to expect, her address comes up on google maps so everyone should be able to find it.

Have a great time! See you next month!

    Wish I could be there. I fell on my driveway and broke my wrist. Had to have surgery Thur and should be getting my cast on tomorrow. Right now I can't drive anywhere. I may have to try painting left handed. Hope you all have a great time.

      Left-handed painting may be a whole new style! Hope you feel better fast.

    Wish I was there with all of you! Stay warm and have fun! Remember this is your chance to get rid of that ugly gift from the holidays that you don't know what to do with!

    Not sure a party is the best way to meet you all, but now that I found you, I hate to wait until the end of February :)

    I will be at the January meeting at Sue's but I can't RSVP because my dues are not paid up. I was planning on paying at the meeting. Lynnea

      Dues are now paid thru the meetup website, that way all records are consolidated. We'll figure it out!
