The Aurora Borealis Fireflies, a local beadmaker group that I co-founded with my friends Pat and Janelle, celebrated Christmas this week with our Annual Xmas party, full of good food, great company, and this year – the changing of the guard. Pat is stepping down as Secretary, and I’m stepping down as President after 4 ( or is it 5? ) years. We’re delighted that some really competent and energetic people are stepping into these roles. To celebrate, I got darlink dollar store tiaras for the new Executive team – pictures were taken, so when I get a copy I’ll post it here. We are, at this point, the only Canadian chapter of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers, and Edmonton has become a real hotbed of bead-making talent. So I’m glad to see the group healthy and with plans for the next year.
Thanks Cindy, Tara, Kyra and Marianne (who is carrying on as Treasurer)! And thanks to Cindy (hostess supreme) and everyone at the party for a lovely evening.
