Events: Brisbane ABCD Meetup November 09 Photos

Wow - what a great night we had at the Powerhouse on Thursday for the last Brisbane ABCD Meetup for 2009. Twenty-four of us (plus one gorgeous 4 month old), chatted at Bar Alto about all things art, craft and design (Brisbane ABCD stands for Artists, Bloggers, Crafters and Designers). Here are some photos from the evening:
