2012 Holiday Card Exchange

This event is a favorite for so many members. There were twenty-seven cards exchanged this year with nine of the cards from out-of-town members. Members signed up for the exchange in October and once the count was known, each participant made enough of the same cards for each member in the group. It's a wonderful way to collect a large number of very creative "cards". See all of the cards/books/ornaments at: NORBAG Flickr

Some of us were SO eager for the exchange to begin!

The collections starts to take shape.

 A special non-holiday card for our enjoyment—sent by Becky L.  She purchased this in Vietnam  because she is a book artist who loves laundry hanging on clotheslines. 

Of course, we love our finger foods too. 
Won't you think about joining this special exchange next year!

Humboldt County Library Kiosk

It's Not Too Late for Holiday Card Inspiration!

Every year North Redwoods Book Arts Guild members create a large number of Holiday cards. The kiosk is filled with some of these gems so head down to the library and be inspired to create some of your own. Thanks Becky M. for the great displays and Dolores G. for the photos.
