June meeting at Wendy's house

This months meeting held at Wendy's in Forest Lakes was a fantastic evening, with Wendy demonstrating how simple making your own natural beauty treatments can be. We watched in awe as Wendy whipped up a batch of honey lip balm for us! Containing goodies such as cocoa butter and vitamin E it is a real treat and lasts on the lips for ages. Wendy has also said that anybody wanting some can let her know before the next meeting and she will bring some along with her. It was a double deal evening with Fay bringing along her snazzy Cricut machine and demonstrating how it takes away the necessity and pain of fussy cutting!
This months minutes are as follows:



Apologies from Fiona and Lyndal

Discussion of the role of the UWA with supportive, friendly, tutorial elements included in its ongoing form. (the Role of Tim Holtz, Wendy said I had to write this!)
Discussion of the blog, Barbara has purchased the domain name, we talked about starting a website, with a support forum, requests and classifieds. If anybody has any thoughts or ideas on this please let us know.
Size of group was discussed, it was felt that this is the groups inaugural year and that after the first 12months the group will be able to expand exponentially. With this in mind we have started a discussion around ongoing interests, with future goals and ambitions, and the ironing out of kinks.
We have started to discuss a library lending system and are looking into how to run it and what it would involve, if anybody has further ideas please share!
We talked about putting a list of members birthdays up on the blog to enable sharing of birthday cards, and warm squashy feelings! How do you all feel about this?

The next monthly UWA meeting will be CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Christmas in July will be held at Fay's on the 16th July, starting during the afternoon and continuing through into the evening. Sending of birthday cards, maybe putting list of birthdays on web, sending of cards.

Secret buddy cards are still going ok, with participation being optional. This months theme is Christmas.
Fay has her slippers on! and has a nice Cricut suitcase. Barbaras slippers look like cookie monster! Wendy's house is awesome.
