My studio is finally open for business! Angel Studio has been a dream of mine for so long that it hardly seems real and I couldn’t be more excited!
I held my first open house to showoff the studio and showcase 3 workshops that I will be having before the end of the year. Everyone had fun with the “Make and Take” Halloween and Thanksgiving cards and the feedback I got made me feel really good about the plan I have for my business!
My first workshop is Holiday Cardmaking. The workshop is Friday November 11, 2016 (that’s Veterans Day) from 10 am to 3 pm. The cost is $25 and includes a light lunch. All tools and materials will be provided. You will leave with a set of 12 Holiday cards. Additional kits with materials for 12 cards will be available for $10.00.
I’m still working on putting the kits together for the cards. My style is whimsical, non-traditional colors and I love Paper Smooches stamps (I have LOTS of them!). I will also have kits with traditional colors and greetings (I have lots of traditional Christmas stamps too). Here are just a few samples of both traditional and whimsical cards.
The next workshop will be on Saturday November 12, 2016. My good friend Karen Webb from Chocolate Lily Art will be teaching “Vintage Book Journals”. The workshop is from 9 am to 4 pm and includes a light lunch. All tools and materials will be provided. The cost is $60 and you will leave this class with a Vintage Journal.
Karen takes vintage books and turns them into beautiful journals filled with bits and pieces of vintage papers, envelopes, pockets and ephemera. Although the journals themselves are works of art, they are meant to be used. You can add words, photos, and art. There are even a few pages with drawings for you to color. Here are few photos of one of Karen’s Vintage Journals.
The third and final workshop of 2016 is “Wooden Tree Ornaments”. The workshop will be on Saturday December 3, 2016 from 10 am to 3 pm. The cost is $30 and includes a light lunch. All tools and materials will be provided. You will leave this class with a set of 4 wooden tree ornaments.
These are mixed media wooden ornaments and they can be hung on a Christmas tree or can sit on a shelf. It’s up to you! You will select the patterned papers, embellishments, and words for the back. They can be traditional or non-traditional. This workshop can be a “Mommy (or Daddy) and Me” workshop for children 4 and older.
If you live in Southeastern Arizona and are interested in attending any of the workshops, please contact me!
I want to thank everyone who came to the open house and helping me to celebrate the opening of Angel Studio! All your words of encouragement mean so much! I can’t wait for the workshops to begin!
Til next time…Be You & Be Happy!
