We are giving thanks!

We are so grateful for another year filled with Girlfriends fun and creativity.
Now with Christmas just a couple of weeks away we are offering our last few workshops for 2013!
The day after Thanksgiving we are clearing off the tables and rolling out the paper so we can all work on our wood projects...like letters and photo holders and whatever else is inky or painty or just messy!


Then on Saturday at 11 am we are making our wonderful distressed Christmas Book using the sweet Tim Holtz Christmas book covers and the ring binders...LOVE THESE!
This workshop is so cute and so much fun but we only have a few kits left so please call and reserve a spot in our workshop!
We have restocked our Christmas papers one more time so now is the time to come in and choose from our outstanding selection!
We also have a few of the paper mache houses available.  These come in a set of two and sell for $12.95
You know how we don't do Black Friday...well nothing has changed but we are running all of our remaining yarns at BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!
Also all our stamps are on sale through Saturday for 20% off.

I think that is all the news there is to tell...We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving and a safe and happy weekend.
Lisa and michele

It's a Joy

It is a joy to teach women to create beautiful books in which they will keep their treasured memories.  I think I forgot to tell my sweet friends how much I enjoyed our workshop today and how very grateful I am for their patience and friendship.
Our workshop today was the very unique SCORE, CUT & FOLD Altered Book.  It is a lot of work to create a book like this for all of us!  As students they need to listen, work exactly and ask for help as they need it.  My wonderful students did a great job at all these things.  Each book will be different as they are completed and each book will hold a myriad of memories.  I hope they are enjoyed by all the families they go to.
Following is a series of pictures of each page so the girls can finish up anything they may have missed in class.
