If you have been reading my blog for awhile and if you were a shopper on my etsy shop, then you know how much I love the old red London double decker destination signs. We now sell them in the store and they have been selling pretty well, as well as anything in the short four weeks we have been open.
See where it says "Bricklayers Arms" and "Noah's Ark"? I just read that those are the names of pubs. Since pubs in England seem to stay in business for 100 years and are located often on corners, the busses use the names of pubs for many of the stops. I love knowing that.
And....Look what my clever husband John did today:
He did a wonderful job of adding a few of the destinations to a dresser. It is for sale in our shop.
Maybe it won't sell. I know a perfect place in our house for it to live.
Here it is March already. So what are we doing in March at the store? Well on Saturday March 10th from 10:30-12:30 we are having a Mail Art Morning. Come play, decorate envelopes, amuse our postal workers and maybe help out the PO a bit. This will be free, yes, free. I will have all the supplies needed such as stencils, stamps, ink, markers, envelopes, paper scraps, glue sticks, scissors. You just bring yourself and a friend if you like. We have plenty of room. RSVP at 440-808-8599 just so I know how many to prepare for.
Then on March 31st, Candace Rich will be teaching "Mixing it Up: Making Cloth Paper". This is a great technique class from 1-4 ($35 per student). You will learn how to combine and layer to create a beautiful and strong material that can be used to cover books, add to collage and can be sewn. Full details are on our website. Just click on "Store Classes". While you are there check out the Workshop Series too. We have awesome teachers coming just for you. We will host all your favorite retreat instructors without all the pressure of a retreat. We have Leighanna Light, Michael DeMeng, Andrea Matus, Carol Owen, Teesha and Tracy Moore, Pam Sussman and Keith Lobue. Sign up now for one or all. Registration is ongoing throughout the year until classes are sold out.
