Do It Yourself!!
That's a good thing to holler at the kids every once in a while...but I'm actually using it in conjunction w/ a fun night at the shop. Come on over to JB Knacker Wednesday, June 17th from 6-8pm for a fun evening of hanging out w/ the gals, munching on some healthy (such a subjective word, really) snacks and creating!
Last month at DIY night, Amy decoupaged a vintage suitcase w/ maps; Natalie made an awesome memo board from an old green chalkbord, a drill and some wire; and Kris created a whole bunch of altered tags. I talked a lot and then finally got down to business and created a photo holder from an old wood shoe form and wire. It was a fun night!!
So...grab any project you've been putting off forever or come empty handed w/ the hope of being inspired to create that great gift or vintage what-not. JB Knacker will have a bunch of ephemera, trinkets, old photos and stuff, stuff, stuff for you to enhance your project or create a totally new one. If you have the time and like to share, bring a little treat for others to nibble on.
The cost of the night is $10.00. Email me w/ any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the shop at 233-2600. And notice the new workshop for July is posted in the left column here of the blog. And oh yeah, June 27th, Saturday is the Breakfast Club from 8-10 am ~ bargains (20% off the whole shop), breakfast ( a little food to get you going) and barns (maps to area barn sales)! You don't want to miss that!
