Summertime and the Living is Creative!

One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by. ~Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle Not only do we have more light to read by, but think of all the other creative things we can do with the longer days! We have lots of new classes in the latter-half of June that you’ll love to try. Pamela Kearns has a new way to bust your bead stash by beading round a cord. Iris Rogers Melamed has a new metalsmithing class for metalwork lovers. Wireworkers will enjoy learning a new wire wrapping project with Jen Rosen …

Did you know, it takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn’t add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every …

Have you also noticed that Santa’s helpers are starting to decorate some of the stores? (No, come back and finish reading!!) Now is the time to start some of your holiday projects to finish in time for gift-giving! And what better time to learn a new technique to create beautiful gifts for your family members and friends – and yourself! We’ve had a lot of inquiries about photographing jewellery and we’re proud to announce that …
