At our last meeting, Karen had the idea of a “new members display” with information about the club, to encourage people to join. I therefore threw something together on Sunday evening while the little one was in the bath (which resulted in rather a long bath!) but what I hope is an effective display that does what says on the tin.
I’ve let several newspapers know about the event, and (feeling a bit like a Jehovas witness), distributed some flyers amongst friends and family (“you can use it as a shopping list if you don’t want it”), and put others up in libraries and other public places.

I’ve also test baked a batch of healthy options blueberry muffins (see last week’s post), to be sold in aid of funds. Elizabeth (another art group member) was my poison tester and gave them her seal of approval. I have also test-frozen one of them to see if they freeze well. I haven’t test defrosted or test eaten it yet. And I spent yesterday morning helping Elizabeth get her paintings ready for the show. As she has arthritis, it is difficult for her to frame her paintings, so I helped by cutting the edges off to neaten them and wrapping then in cellophane to keep them clean and make them look presentable.
As with marmalade sandwiches, so with art shows. But will I get anything out of it? Watch this space.
