October 2012


Happy fall everyone! I have said it before, but my, how this year has flown by. I would like to start off by publically thanking Sandie Tieman and Pat Hull for a fabulous Painting Workshop. It was a fun and relaxing time and we have already received positive feedback. Perhaps we can find a way to make this a money maker for the club. At the September meeting, we brainstormed about several things, including ways to save money. First of all, let me give my definition of brainstorming: brainstorming is putting together ideas. I may be wrong, but it seemed that some actually thought we had already made decisions, and that is not the case. The one thing that everyone seemed to agree on is that we continue to not have a meeting in April and then not have one in August. More information to come later. Please feel free to contact me (or any of the board members) with any ideas or concerns you may have. Happy Painting, Stephanie Hauser

Painting is a Picnic!
The retreat committee has received some great projects for consideration. We have chosen a fantastic and varied selection to offer for our 2013 retreat. Something for everyone! Come to see the actual projects (always better than pictures) and make your selection at the Retreat Preview on Sunday October 28, 12-3pm at Mercy Health West Park. Great refreshments will be served.

More fun, more delicious food, more friends (old and new), better painting skills! Mark your calendar for April 19, 20, 21, 2013.

Sandie Tieman, VP Programs
Hi Ladies, As I write this, I can't believe it is the end of September already. It seems that once October begins, so does all the holiday madness and I'm just not ready for that yet. I am, however, ready for some beautiful fall weather after the summer we had! On Saturday, Sept. 22nd, we had our workshop that proved to be a great success and tons of fun for everyone. I'm hoping we have gained a few new members and that we might just see them at our October meeting. I want to thank Stephanie and Pat for all of their help with this event. I absolutely could not have done everything by myself. Our Chapter is very fortunate to have these two kind and generous ladies. Thanks Steph and Pat for all you do! Here is our program agenda for the remainder of 2012: OCTOBER 14: SERVICE PROJECT Final day to bring NEW art supplies for Children’s Hospital OCTOBER 28: GCDA RETREAT PREVIEW PARTY, 12pm to 3pm (pages 3 & 4) NOVEMBER 11: CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT BOX TAUGHT BY YOURS TRULY (page 2) NOVEMBER 12: SERVICE PROJECT, MATTHEW 25 MINISTRIES 10:00am to-1:00pm DECEMBER 9: CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR GCDA MEMBERS

We are working on a new schedule for next year and will pass on the information to you in the near future. As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions or comments regarding programs. See you in October!

GREATER CINCINNATI DECORATIVE ARTISTS CHAPTER MEETING –SEPTEMBER 9, 2012 President: Stephanie Hauser called the meeting to order at 12:07 pm. Secretary: There were no corrections to the July minutes. Ann Dick made a motion to accept, and Sherida England seconded. Treasurer: The Treasurer’s report was accepted as written, and will be published in the newsletter. VP Programs: Sandie Tieman reported that Jo Ann Heurich was teaching a Shrinky Dink Fall bracelet after today’s meeting. 18 people are staying. The September Learn to Paint workshop will be held on 9/22 from 9:30 – 2:30. 27 members and guests are signed up and it will be held in the downstairs room because a larger space was needed. A potluck lunch will be served, and a signup sheet was passed around to members for this. October is the service project meeting. Sandie will be teaching a Christmas ornament box in November, and the deadline to sign up is October 2. VP Membership: Melanie Wilmhoff was absent today. There was a reminder that it is time to renew dues/ membership. National dues can be done online. GCDA dues can be mailed to Melanie, or given to her at the October or November meeting. We had 2 guests in attendance today: Cindy, who is Carol Arend’s daughter, and Mary Lou, who came on her own. Ways & Means: Sherida England showed the raffle prizes for today and passed the basket around. Newsletter: Pat Hull was absent. Website: Melanie Wilmhoff was absent. Publicity: Pat Hull was absent. Service: Peggy Hermes reported that she painted a tree mural on a wall at Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly. She had asked for members to help her do an art project with them, and even though no one in our group volunteered to help out, she went by herself and helped the residents decorate around the mural that she had painted. She also reported that many members have already donated art supplies to our October service project for Children’s Hospital, and they will continue to be collected through the next meeting. Our chapter will be volunteering at Matthew 25 Ministries on Monday, November 12, from 10:00-1:00, and a signup sheet was passed around. 2013 Retreat Chair: Jo Ann Heurich reminded members that the preview party will be on October 28, from 12-3 at West Park. Christmas Raffle: Jo Sharpshair reminded everyone to turn in their 6 ornaments. There is an oval box that is an incentive prize. Members need to help sell tickets for the raffle as this is a moneymaker for our chapter. Each of the 6 prizes that will be raffled off includes an assortment of hand painted ornaments and a tray. Christmas Party Chair: No report at this time. Nominating Committee Chair: No report today Hospitality: Thanks to all who brought food today. The signup sheet for the October meeting was passed around. Sunshine: No report at this time. Historian: No report at this time. Old Business: Alice Goldfuss reported that the bus trip to HOOT on August 16 was very good. There were 29 people who went. The cost to our chapter was $150. New Business: Stephanie asked the members to think about a new way of organizing our chapter meetings. We are required by National to conduct 6 business meetings a year. If we did that, then sometimes on Sunday, we could just paint the whole time the room is rented which is 10:00 to 3:30, but not hold a meeting. We would still have short classes on the days we have the 6 business meetings. We would then be able to have 3 or 4 longer hour classes on the Sundays when we wouldn’t have a business meeting. We would still have the Christmas party, but no meeting in April or August. Stephanie will check into the details before the next meeting. Show & Tell: The items for show and tell were shown. Ways & Means Raffle: Winners of today’s raffle prizes include Linda Kohler, Ann Dick and Jan Bowen Name Tag Drawing: The winner was Mary Ann Slizewski, who received $5, Mary Ann Slizewski made a motion to adjourn and Peggy Hermes seconded. The meeting was adjourned at 12:38 PM. Respectfully submitted, Linda Kohler GCDA Secretary

October is the last month to receive tickets for the 2 incentive prizes for turning your ornaments in early. One of the prizes is one of the beautiful trays and the other is a painted bentwood box. Please bring your ornaments in – we have ornaments from 16 members and baskets/incentive from 5 members. We will accept ornaments/ baskets in November, but you will not get a chance to win the incentive prizes; however, you will still get credit toward your member in good standing status. Painting 6 ornaments (or a basket/incentive prize in place of ornaments) is one of the requirements for being a member in good standing. As a member in good standing, you will receive 2$15 vouchers good for seminars plus a $15 discount on your retreat package. It is also important to sell the raffle tickets as well. We have raffle tickets available to buy or sell at all meetings or you can call or e-mail me to have them sent if you won’t be at the meeting. There will be a prize for the person selling the most tickets. This is one of our two main fundraisers, so please join in. Remember the ornaments must be painted by you. Please sign and date ornaments. You may turn in ornaments to me or Sherida at any meeting. Jo Sharpshair josharpshair@zoomtown.com

News from SDP
Over the last several months, we have been developing a student membership. Student members will receive the magazine online, won't be able to vote, but can join chapters and enjoy all the other benefits of membership. We want this to go even beyond chapters and we want them to be full members of SDP so we can't do it for free, but we will be dropping membership dues, likely to $25. Information on this program will be published in the next issue of The Decorative Painter, and will be voted on at the 2013 Annual Meeting during the Conference in St. Charles. Interestingly, we found during our research for the project that SDP used to have a student membership. The program lasted from 1972 (the inception) to 1995–almost perfectly aligned with the entire growth period of SDP. We do believe that this will bring in new younger members and revitalize the organization. If you have any suggestions or questions about the student membership, please do feel free to get in touch. Thank you, Matthew Clagg Marketing & Communications Coordinator (316) 269-9300 x115
