- Art Challenge Window Boxes – Sometimes inspiration needs a little kick start, so we are going to hold a quarterly art challenge for our members. Take the suggested theme, this time window boxes, and run with it in your own imagination and style. Submit a picture of your creation to Joan Stackpole joanstackpole@gmail.com for her to post on our website and facebook page. We will bring our creations to share in person at our annual member meeting in September where we will also announce the next challenge.  Thanks to Valerie Wiehman-Rock for this suggestion and Mary Zierold for the first theme!
