I couldn’t be more excited…I love the Creative Cafe product line and the new additions are just amazing…Danelle and Allison out did themselves this time.

The papers and epoxy are great but I have to say I am most thrilled about the felt butterflies!

We did get a few other things…including new issues of Scrapbook Trends and re-stocks on Simply Swank…

Enjoy the eye-candy!

December First?? Oh my! How did this happen?? Well, like it or not, we’re sliding into the end of 2008. I have to admit, I love this time of year. The cold mornings make it feel so good snuggling down with a hot cup and my “stuff”

Thankful? I am so incredibly thankful and blessed to have the best business partner in the whole world, the most supportive family ever and the most creative and inspiring community here.

Now, on to the business at hand.

This week in the studio we are:

SOLDERING: memory glass slides (Tues Dec 2nd)Add the special silver metal finish to mini glass slides. Learn this technique and you will be able to MAKE! dozens of gifts from tiny bits of beautiful paper. Imagine the customizing possibilities. It all starts with one incredibly simple technique. Join us Tuesday night at 7pm to learn the basics and get certified to use the soldering equipment anytime you want to in the studio.

PAINTED BACKGROUNDS: img_0687(Wed Dec 3rd) Having Traci Bautista here was an inspiring experience. I just can’t get enough painted paper backgrounds. This evening will be a self-indulgent night of adding texture through dyeing paper towels and scraping paint. If you are even a little bit curious plan come in and check out what we’re up to. Wednesday night at 7pm we’ll each have our own table to spread out on. I’ll have a dip dye station set up and all the paper towels you need. I’ll even have gloves for those worried about their manicure.

PMC: pmc(Thurs Dec 4th) Did you know that you can MAKE! your own 99% pure SILVER jewelry, pendants, charms and more? Precious Metal Clay is microscopic silver particles suspended in an organic binder. The consistency of clay, this material is easy to roll out and press texture into using stamps and other tools. Make your pieces and we’ll fire them and have them ready for you within a week. Your class fee covers your studio time and firing fee. Materials fee is based on the current price of silver ($45/20g) Thursday night from 7-8:30pm

Saturday and Sunday (December 6 & 7) is our HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA

There is still a couple of spaces. It is an incredible value at $75 you get an entire weekend of crafting/scrapbooking time. The goody bag that comes with your registration is worth well over $75 itself. PLUS we are having a silent auction to raise money for the Second Harvest Food Bank.
