January 2020


CLASS SCHEDULE
january 2020

I can't believe that it's time for the January Class Schedule for 2020!!!  This begins our 9th year as an art supply store and it has been so much fun.  I wasn't sure we'd make it through that 1st year.  Along the way Lisa and I have had many joyous times and a few sad ones.  The circle of life has taken friends and family members and brought new babies to friends and family members during these 9 years.  We've had fun this past year and look forward to even more fun in 2020.  We're glad you're here with us on this journey and wish you a very Happy New Year!!!

Demo Day was a blast!  We welcomed new people and enjoyed the company of our good friends.  The FREE Make 'n Take was this really cute magnetic frame calendar using a new, but classic Mary Engelbreit image that RubberMoon Rubber Stamps is now producing.    We did sell out of the image used here as well as the tiny calendars, but will have more in stock as soon as possible.  This makes a great little gift for friends and family.


February's class schedule is really fun.  Lisa has 2 Valentine card classes and a project using the Master Page Create from last October.  If you didn't make it by on Demo Day, drop in and take a look at the classes in person.  My photos don't do them justice.
