12-13-14 or Annual ARTsistahs Holiday Day in the City

Every year the ARTsistahs gather to celebrate the holidays in New York City.  This year we decided to have lunch and take a class with Donna Downey at the Ink Pad.  Just like last year, it was Santacon, but instead of showing you a bunch of Santa clad celebrants, I'm showing you a lovely bunch of carolers who greeted us in Grand Central.

We were off, first stop lunch at Commerce in the West Village.  On the way we found the cutest little bakery called milk and cookies.  It was too soon for snacks, but I picked up a magic cookie bar for later.  Anyone who knows me, knows I like a cookie!

Look at this adorable painting hanging inside: artist unknown.

Lunch was at Commerce.  It was the perfect meal.

We started with cocktails

and exchanged little 'gifties'

Then we headed over to the Ink Pad for our class. 
It was held at the Westbeth Gallery. 
Donna Downey was a wonderful, fun teacher. 
 Here she is demonstrating a technique.

We worked diligently on our mixed media books.
 I was so busy, I don't have many photos.  I'll post my finished book soon (probably after the holidays).

We posed for pics with Donna before we left. 
(missing from photo Elizabeth and Kathi who ran to catch their train)
I love my days in the city with my ARTsistahs.  I have found my tribe!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



I MISS my tribe....looks like you had an absolutely fabulous day....wish I could have joined you.
