2011 NORBAG Holiday Card Exchange

This exchange is a favorite of members and the following slideshow captures much of what makes the event so special. Thanks to Sandy for hosting, and Ellen for taking photos of each of the cards for Flickr, thanks Bonnie for all of the photos used to create the slideshow and photos of cards for the monthly newsletter. Did you know that the NORBAG library keeps a set of cards from each year, allowing members to check them out? I wish we could check out some of those cookies.

Reminder * Arrow over the slideshow to reveal controls that allow you to move through the slides yourself, or if you click on the slides you can view still images *



Time to start planning for next year!

Happy Holidays!

Holiday Card Exchange, 2011

Royalty-Free Image, Dover

It's time again for our annual Holiday gathering and card exchange. This is our most popular exchange of the year with 29 members participating in the exchange this year (sign-up was in October). Each member will make 29 cards plus one for the guild library—a total of 900 cards!

Members who are not participating in the exchange are MOST welcome.
Details on the location and time of the event are on page 1 of our newsletter. You can also call any board member listed on page 2 of the newsletter if you have additional questions. 

Also, we will not have the library at the exchange but there will be a box so that you can return any you may have checked out, or any you wish to donate.

Note: Please bring a finger food to share!

Library Kiosk for the Holidays

If you're still looking for ideas for creating your own unique holiday cards, these photos of cards created by our members are sure to inspire. If you would like a closer look (besides clicking on the images) you can see them in the kiosk behind the checkout desk at the Humboldt County Library. Thank you Bonnie for the display and thank you to all the members who make these cards for our annual holiday card exchange.
