Gena and I just got back from a weekend of workshops from Tim Holtz. Dina Wakley, Wendy Vecchi, Dyan Reaveley, Graphic 45, BoBunny, Sizzix and many more! These were workshops to bring back to you, so its starting to feel a lot like Christmas around here. Our Holiday classes are going to be send out in two newsletters so we do not overwhelm you. In this one we have planned a entire Holiday weekend with both of our talented Anita's!
Anita Houston is coming back to teach her Santa's Door Burlap Panel Tag Album and adorable Whirly Bird steampunk style. This is her last visit for this year so if you love learning new techniques and not having to bring a ton of stuff to class, you will love her workshops.
Anita Scroggins, our DT coordinator and talented teacher, is famous for her mini books and annual Christmas countdown albums, is bringing us "12 Days of Christmas Mini Book. If you are out of town and coming for the weekend, be sure and call the Comfort Suites and tell them you are with the Crafty Scrapper to get our corporate rate of $59.95, 469-517-1600. Classes can also be purchased online HERE!
If you are signing up for the whole weekend you will receive $10 off or a box lunch from Dove's Nest. Both classes have limited space so do not wait to long, we also offer layaway! All 3 classes are also offered as kits with colored instructions, so if you cannot attend or live out of state you can purchase a kit, just let them know when signing up and if it needs to be shipped.
UPDATE on our move, most of you know we are moving and are probably wondering when! We are planning to move after we close Saturday October 11th and will be closed that Monday. Our new location is 108 South Rogers, right across from the courthouse. We apologize for the mess at the current shop and any inconvenience this move may cause, we are going o try and make it as painless as we can. Mark your calendars and save the date for November 6th, that evening we will be hosting our open house to show off the new shop and all the holiday classes! It will be a fun evening with MNT, food, drinks and prizes!
