Easter Projects

Date: March 23rd, 2017

Bunnies, eggs, chocolate, sweets and family gatherings are just a few things that describe what is involved in an Easter gathering. Family members exchange gifts, cook great food and enjoy spending time together. Getting someone something that isn’t redundant can be difficult to come up with, especially when times are incredibly busy. Gifts made with thought and love truly are the best gifts to give and receive – we can help you with that if handmade projects aren’t your forte!

There are so many useful platters, plates, egg cups and more that you can make for family members as gifts. Best part? Have the kids incorporate their creative touch to make it all the more special! Grandparents absolutely love the sweet gesture and it will be used for years to come! Come on into your studio to get some inspiration and create those one-of-a-kind, memorable and special gifts today!

St. Paddy’s Day

Date: March 16th, 2017

St. Paddy’s day for the kiddos is a day of fun where they get to dress in green the whole day and get green candies to snack on. If this day lands on a school day, some teachers are even nice enough to schedule in some fun games just to keep the spirits up during the day. For adults, this day is one where they can unwind after work or on the weekend with a green beer or 2… or more!

Fun fact: St. Patrick’s day was not always celebrated with beer! Ireland had this day set as a religious holiday for the whole country so that meant that pubs were closed for those. This lasted 67 years between 1903-1970 (International Business Times).

Fun fact 2: St. Patrick wasn’t Irish! He was born in Britain and then moved to Ireland. The more you know, huh?

If St. Paddy’s day is one you absolutely love to celebrate, especially to celebrate your Irish heritage, we have some ideas for really neat projects you can work on! Come on in to see what ideas we have for you or bring your own fun ideas to life!

Dr. Seuss Day!

Date: March 2nd, 2017

Happy Dr. Seuss Day, everyone! March 2nd, 2017 marks the 113th birthday of Dr. Seuss, if he was still with us today. So many of us grew up having our parents and teachers read his books to us. For a lot of us, his books were some of the first ones we ever used to help us learn how to read. For those of you old enough to be parents, you may possibly be reading his books to your children now. No matter the generation or age, Dr. Seuss’ works are some to be read for ages to come. Happy birthday to you, Dr. Seuss!

“Today you are you, that is truer than true!

There is no one alive that is you-er than you!” – Dr. Seuss
