April 27, 2010
Hi ♥


.. and a special welcome to all new members to our Art Community , I hope you are all settling in to our creative space, feel free to peek at our NEWBIES INTRO .. and I look forward to getting to know you and your ART :-)


A Season of Artful Orange

~ We are going to Play with Orange ... embracing Orange in Mixed Media Art, Photography , Art Journaling and everything in between ..
Orange is one of my least favorite colors..I rarely ever use it .. I am tickled to explore something that does not come naturally to me ... will you play with me ?


Ning News

There have been lots of speculations over the New Ning Changes .. no concrete news yet far as I am concerned we are just continuing as usual taking each day as it comes... I have now added a DONATION button on the right hand side of our community page so that people who wish and can are invited to donate towards the running costs of our community ..
A big thanks goes out to all members who have donated into our Community Kitty so far .. on behalf of me and the fireflies I would like to show our appreciating for supporting our Community Space for Creative Women .. Daily we have between 10 -15 new members that find their way here and we are growing together into the supportive environment that makes our community so refreshing ....


" Art to let one's heart do a dance on tiptoes ...knowing that one will reach the height of one's expression ...regardless of the tune playing ... "

IMPORTANT TECH NEWS - I have decided to switch the NEWSLETTER to a different host, to avoid the problems we have had with the Ning provider changing their settings often .... I hope this makes it an easier solution for everyone to access community news
Please SUBSCRIBE to our new newsletter here

~~~ CHAT ~~~


THIS WEEKS CHAT will be FRIDAY , February 26th at 2 pm EST

We are currently looking for members who might be willing to host a chat , maybe on fridays, maybe on a different day/time convinient for a different timezone ... all it means that some person is always present to greet newcomers and facilitate an encouraging athmospere in the chatroom ..
If anyone feels drawn to support us this way ..please send me a message :-)

*** On the Lookout for Fireflies

As our Community keeps on growing ...there are new openings for becoming a Firefly ...
What does a Firefly do ?
~ be a bright light for their particular subgroup and help faciliate group dynamics
~ encourage conversation and supportive interaction
~ keep an eye out that everything runs smoothly and inform Milliande and Letha( Tech help) if necessary
~ create art prompts , challenges and swap if so inspired
~ be part of a team of creative fireflies to discuss the growing of our community

If you feel like that might be something you enjoy and/or drawn to a particular subgroup.. please feel free to contact me :-)
I envisage at least 3 fireflies per subgroup to work together as a team eventually .. :-)
