January 2013 Classes


Can't believe it's time to show you the January classes.  Although it is not a complete list, I think you'll like what you see for the first part of the month.

Be My Valentine
January 3 &4

Can you say "lovely"?  Just what this collection of Valentine cards are....  AND they are made with the "Lovely" collection by Authentique, stamps from B Line, Hero Arts and the newest Impression Obsession Valentine collection.  

Love One Another Canvas
January 10 & 11

Lisa has returned to the backside of the canvas.  Whew!  Thought she'd reformed for good, but as you can see it is an awesome piece of art.  You will love making this canvas.

Watercolor Wonders
January 17 & 18

Scared to watercolor?  Fear not.....  Lisa walks you through some incredibly easy ways to "watercolor" your cards using ink pads and distress markers.

Demo Day
January 19

You know the drill (unless you're new to us).  It's always FREE.  It's the 3rd Saturday of the Month (most of the time). It's Come and Go from 10am to 4pm.  Always a FREE Make-It-Take-It AND the Class Schedule for the following month is ready.  We always have loads of new things for you to see and it's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!

December 2012 Demo Day

December 2012

As December progresses, Lisa and I are truly thankful for your friendships and your patronage.

We had a wonderful Demo Day last Saturday.  Here is a picture of the really cute and inexpensive party favor we made.....

Seriously, it's so cute and so simple.  We used a toilet paper roll..... really, we did.  You paint the inside with acrylic paint (we used the Claudine Helmuth Studio paint we offer) and then you cover the outside with the paper of your choice.  Add ribbon and stamped embellishment and voila'.... cute party favor you fill with the small gift of your choice.....  If you came Saturday, you got a nail file (til we ran out) and a tiny bar of soap.  You can fill it with Hersheys kisses.....  whatever your sweet heart wants.  Darling!

Coming in 2013

As 2013 approaches we are planning so many new and wonderful things.  

Our friends, Donna Downey and Dina Wakley are returning to teach this spring - so excited by that.  

I'm looking into PayPal for odd transactions that you can't make in house.  

We are exploring more swap options.  I want to keep doing the 4 seasonal swaps we do and add in a "challenge" during the off times.  More about that later.

I'm thinking about a monthly newsletter.  Just found a wonderful email service that seems to be perfect for our needs.....  

If there is anything you would like to see us do, let me know.  This is really all about you.....  No matter what I want to do, it's fairly worthless if you aren't interested.  That's my 2013 resolution..... to be more sensitive to your needs.  So keep hammering me....  sometimes I'm a little dense, but I'll eventually get it.  

That's it for now..... Until next Post..... Happy Creatin'

oh, and

Merry Christmas!
May the one true God, the Great I AM, keep you and yours, and may you be blessed by the love He has for you!
