Centerpieces: Inspiration Jars/Creative Containers

For those of you interested in helping out with the centerpieces this year, I am asking people to create a Creative Containers/Inspiration Jars.

These are containers that you have that you can upcycle, embellish/decorate, make festive, and fill. You can do anything you want to the container to inspire another artist in our group. The sky is the limit here. You can stuff the jars with paint tubes, crayons, paint brushes, sketchbook or journaling ideas on little slips of paper, add a plant to it, a small candle, a balloon, anything that you think will inspire or make someone want to smile or laugh. That way after all the laughter and inspiration, the artists will still have a fantastic container for their studios.

This idea comes from Cloth Paper Scissors (click on the link).

If you want to sign up to let me know that you are bringing a centerpiece, please email me at rendancechick@yahoo.com.

I look forward to seeing everyone there!
