Greenville 2021

After a year of Covid, six of the birds ventured out for a weekend in Greenville, South Carolina in December 2021.

Julie, Nancy, and Janet Zoomed in for the Magic Bags.
Nancy Zoomed in from her hospital room.
Danger girls posing on the rocks.
Gina taught a session on creating a marvelous charcuterie board.

Covid Christmas 2020

Covid arrived in late 2019 and affected us all in 2020. We zoomed, texted, and sent mail. We ordered things online. We shared resources (toilet paper). And generally did what we could to stay in touch.

The gang is almost all here. Missing Nancy and Janet.
We saw ghosts.
And we had bugs – literal and technological.
We had makeup tutorials – sometimes with marginal success.
We had Show and Tell Zooms. This is a “lovely” piece of jewelry on display.
We loved wearing masks. (sarcasm font)
We enjoyed the magic of Zoom.

Olivia appreciated her TP rescue.
Joanna shared some mask tips.

Julie was sad when we missed a Zoom.

Cindy was up to her shenanigans again.

It was a tough year but we kept it together because that’s what friends do!

Merry Christmas 2020.

Red Truck (Craft) Christmas 2019

We had another special Christmas gathering at Joanna’s lake house for our annual Christmas party. This year the theme was Red Trucks. Instead of Magic Bags we had Magic Trucks delivering goodies throughout the weekend. Beep Beep!

Gingerbread Christmas 2018

We met at Joanna’s house November 30 – Dec 2 2018 for our annual Christmas party and gift exchange. Julie and Gina planned and Joanna offered her lake house as the location. The first picture is a group photo at Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa. It was taken on Saturday. The rest of the photos are in chronological order.
