THOUGHTFUL GARLAND(S)  December 16: 2-5pm

Decorate your x-mas tree with pictures of your family and friends, your kids drawings (they make sooo many, this is a great way to use them!), your own sketches, words that you cherish or even wrote, old letters you've kept in a shoebox for years, souvenirs ... or just letting your imagination go wild with collage and the inspiration of the moment.  Bring pictures, drawings, letters, notes ... whatever you wish to include and I'll show you how to cut snippets from them to make a very thoughtful garland.  Precious papers, neat tools, ideas, studio and stitches will be provided.  3 hours of CREATIVE FUN.  30$/person.  You should be able to make one garland for your tree and one to give as a gift.

Create your own collection of cards which double as ornaments.  An ingenious mailable gift!  Although you can buy BLANK ones in my shop, here we will make them personal and personalized.  Keep in mind the person you're making it for or just imbue it with your own sparkle- be it photography, writing, drawing, collage ...
