Good Monday evening! Just got home from the shop and have to run up to see Dad - after I pick up grandson Gannon, so I'm going to try to get this on here pretty quick. I wanted to share our shop skeleton in the vintage costume and bucket head! Isn't he a hoot? We have a smaller version coming soon.
Terry brought in these candy corn on a stick with a little mouse peeking out from behind and some old grubby cheesecloth. $16.95 ea

Handmade witch's broom! $19.95/ea.

Sunday evening we had birthday cake and presents with our Abbey. Don't you just love her new "hat"? Can't believe she is 7 years old already!

Sunday afternoon I went to Val's shower (our future daughter-in-law) and got to catch up with friends and relatives. Looking forward to a September 26 wedding (my birthday - what a fun way to celebrate)!

Now on to some business! Classes are lining up for the shop this fall! Kari is going to be teaching soldered necklaces. They are SOOOO cool. The class will be October 8th from 6:30-9:00. The cost is $25.00 and will include supplies, pizza, drinks and desert. You only have to bring a soldering iron. Be sure to get your Michael's or Joann's 40% off coupon before purchasing one. You will learn all kinds of things you can do with this! Pick your own images and more! We are limiting the class size to 10, so be sure to sign up soon!

The first class Carol will be teaching is altered journals for either Halloween or fall - your choice. You not only learn how to do the journal, but you also will learn where to find images and more. It will be so much fun! The class will be September 10 from 6:30-9:00. Did I mention there will be pizza, pop and desert? Also bring sponge brush and modge podge.
Come into the shop soon and sign up for the above classes. We only have room for about 10 in each class and they are starting to fill up quickly. Get ahold of your girlfriends and enjoy an evening out!
Time to keep moving - as usual.
Until next time...
