My friend Mike of Coffee Break Design, often includes a little gift with my orders for Small Studio. Sometimes it is a cartoon or an extra item for me to make a sample. Sometimes it is some old ephemera that is quirky and makes us smile and shake our heads. Sometimes it is some cool tiny gadget for John.
Last week it was really something very special. I think I actually shouted when I opened it. I was so intent on opening it that I did not take a photo of the cool Coffee themed wrappings. Such perfect wrappings from Mr and Mrs "Coffee" themselves.
Last summer I wrote a post about this very one of a kind dresser that had drawers carved into letters.
And the drawers open...
My little dresser is the size of a cigar box instead of room size, but it is huge on ingenuity and pizazz. I am so happy to have this little gem. Thank you, thank you, Mike. You are always so good to me and such a great friend. Thank you.
I have had several questions about Small Studio Workshop Series. I will try to answer them as they come in both privately and on this blog if I think others may have the same questions.
1. When is registration? Registration is on-going for each class from now until that class is sold out.
2. Can we take the workshops online? NO! This is a hands-on, in-person series of workshops. I like online classes, but there is nothing like having the instructor right there helping you along. There is also so much to learn from the other students when you are all doing the techniques or projects together. One of the special things that happens is the camaraderie that occurs during a day or weekend of workshops. Sometimes life-long friendships are forged.
3. Can I sign up for one class now and others later? Yes, as long as there is room still in that workshop. Just fill out a new registration form for the added class(es).
If you have any questions you can ask in the comments or e-mail me at email@example.com
