Do you wait too long each year to start creating handcrafted gifts and then run out of time and lose the joy of it?

Well if you would rather give handmade but never seem to get organized than you are not alone…

and it is not your fault.

You just haven’t had a fun community to hold you accountable plus a plethora of projects to keep you inspired with gift ideas that will make the receiver say “Wow!” instead of “Oh.”

Nothing compares to giving handcrafted gifts from the heart to your loved ones; however, it can be hard to come up with unique ideas that will be appreciated and finished on time.

That’s where we can help..watch this video to learn how.

  • “I have signed up for this class so that I can FINALLY make some Christmas presents for my friends and family. I always have good intentions, but rarely follow through. I’m looking forward to some fun creating and seeing what everyone else in the class is up to also.” ~Jackie D. from Mobile, Alabama
  • “Thank you for this wonderful class!! I love to give unique gifts to people, and I couldn’t have found a greater way to learn some new ideas and techniques for making gifts other than from you and all the other artists included in these lessons for the Holidays! “~ Deb Lund

    “I signed up because I like making things for the holidays. I love mixed media although I haven’t done a lot. There is so much to do and learn; not the least of which is the massive amount of products available. I could spend hours re-searching things on the web but then all my time has been wasted. Signing up to learn from the experts who already know this stuff is a short cut for me. I learn how to do great projects while getting familiar with the products as well as “meeting” the designers. This one I especially like because it utilizes as much on hand stuff as possible. I’m working on Andrea’s gift wrapping now. The weather has finally cooled making it the perfect time to start.” ~Elsa R. Crowley, Texas
