This morning, Bev A., Barb R., Judi R and Barb S. came to my place to pick up their orders from Liz at Grandpa's Dollhouse. The other three people who had ordered were unable to attend - two got theirs at our club meeting on Tuesday and Gwen will pick hers up later. (We all order separately but have Liz ship everything to me which lowers our shipping costs incredibly. This year shipping was only $5.60 each!)
New member, Andrea, joined us as we wanted to give her a chance to meet some club members in a smaller, less formal, setting.
My mea culpa. Honest, I did have my camera on hand from the beginning but got so wrapped up watching the unveiling that I didn't remember to take pictures until we had finished lunch and were doing a round-table self-introduction. That was really interesting and enlightening!

|This is all that was left from the freebies from Liz.|
|Barb S. and Barb R. checking out the construction of a chair Barb S. bought.|
|My goodies! Bought a nursery set just in case I need to make a nursery roombox one of these days. (Not counting on that happening though.)|

Love this Bespaq cabinet. In an ideal world, I would make some of my 1;12 minis in 1:144 and put them in here but, realistically, that just isn't going to happen.
In addition to the club freebies, Liz also sent me a bag of freebies; The highlights were a blank canvas with palette with paint and brushes and the most incredible sewing box with spools of thread, scissors and other accessories. Also a telephone, copper mold and a couple vases. There were also a couple other things that I added to the other giveaway as I knew I wouldn't use them.
All in all, it has been an absolutely great two days!
