Spotty Internet.

Please forgive me I have been having some troubles with internet this week… Making it quite impossible to keep up to date on my posts and work!

Here are a few things I have to tell you….

First… there are only two spaces left in our first Mini Summer Camp session…

Week One- Summer Night Camp

July 10-13th from 5:00-6:00 PM (All ages welcome)
For four days in July, your child will create beautiful creations based on the theme A SUMMER NIGHT. Each Child will create a night sky painting complete with glowing stars, a terrarium for a collection of fireflies, a special pillowcase and their very own up-cycled book.

Email or call me if you would like me to hold you a spot. You may also check our Calendar of Events Page for more options.

Second

Here are some photos from our Needle Felting- Cats workshop yesterday…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I usually try not to take every single workshop but I couldn’t help it because I just love Rachel Gerowe’s Classes and I love kitties. I didn’t take many photos because I was focusing on making my cat, Bunny.

This is her.

Please let me know if you would like to sign up for an upcoming Needle Felting Workshops…
