New Members Wanted

The Circle of Friends is Looking for New Members
and you could be just what we need!

What is The Circle of Friends you might ask...well we are a group of Artist/Crafters that loves to share our work and chat. Sound like fun...that's because it is.

What makes us different from other groups? For starters we are small so we have gotten to know each other quite well, giving the members another place to turn when they need support in life or art. We are also all at different levels of art/crafting and different styles so it is a great place to learn.

Want to see some of our is a sampling of our members (not all of us) work...

Here is the e-mail we send out to all interested persons...if it sounds good to you please stop by

Are You a Good Fit for the Circle of Friends?

Hello, and thank you so much for taking an interest in our group. A little background as to who we are. We are a group of artists that have come together over the past four years. Originally a magazine advertisement brought us together, since then we have welcomed new members brought in from other connections and watched other members grow and leave us. It is important for you to know that we are a tight nit group but we are open to new members.

So, since we don’t want to create any uncomfortable situations let’s see if we are compatible. If you can answer yes to the following questions this is most likely the group for you.

You love to craft
You communicate well in e-mail.
You respect mail by deadlines

All project participation is up to you. We currently offer a monthly project hosted by various members and a journal rotation (you must successfully complete 3 swaps before taking part in a journal rotation).

Monthly Projects: Host determines the theme, medium and any other details.
Our 2009 Monthly Projects were…
January: Altered Domino's
February: Secrets of the Heart
March: Tag book, theme = Spring
April: Asian
May: Newspaper
June: Food and Drink inchies
July: ATC kit
August: Gothic Arches, Theme = Medieval
September: Advent Calendar ATC’s
October: Advent Calendar ATC’s
November: Mystery Stamp

Currently we make one piece for each member that is participating. So if 7 members sign up for that swap then we make 7 of whatever the monthly item is. The most of each project we have ever had to make is 12. As stated earlier the amount you participate is entirely up to you, all swaps have a sign up period.

So if this sounds up you alley great, we look forward to getting to know you. But if you think our group is not for you that is fine and we thank you for taking the time to check us out.
