Last evening a really cool group came to The Cinnamon Stick to "play and create" - and that is just what we did!!  Scissors were snipping, glitter was flying and sticky fingers were some of the fun happenings!

After a few instructions we started to put our jars together...not as easy a task as it sounds - however this group listened and did fantastic!  Really fantastic!  We finished in record time and had time leftover, so we decorated the "take home" sacks!  I think the girls had as much fun doing that as making the jar - lots of pictures to share.  One long picture explanation first - This is Mike and Maria who take many of our workshops.  (they are engaged and much, much fun)!  Maria has taken the Witch in a Jar workshop before so she made a "Mike" witch and Mike took a picture of Maria (they came to our last Witches Nite Out and I snapped a picture of Maria in full costume)  dressed from that night and made their own jars using these pictures. I am showing this picture first so you get an idea of how much fun and how much creativity goes on in our workshops!
(If you click on the pictures they enlarge to see more detail!!)

Mike and Maria - Mike (owner of Valley Forge Antiques) is in full Revolutionary Soldier uniform ( his passion and business)

Waiting for the girls (and Mike) to come!

Everyone is working diligently..

Sticky fingers with orange glitter - what could be more fun!

Mary being very patient waiting for the glitter to dry on her witch!

I have had several requests to repeat the "Witch in a Jar" workshop and am most willing to do so (it is a fun workshop)!!   If we can gather enough gals I would have this class -
                                        Thursday, September 18
                                                    6 to 9 pm
                                        Cost:  $12.  (all supplies included).
Even if you have taken this class before it would make a great gift for a special friend!
Please let me know ASAP if you are interested.  Email -cinnamonstick@comcast.net or call the store  215-541-7907 to reserve your seat.
Here she is with one of our "solar lids" shining down on her.  The quart jar comes with a vintage zinc lid - but solar lids can be purchased at the workshop.

Looking forward to another fun get together!!
Spooky fun in the Attic,

I am loving the store right now - dressed in gold, black and orange with a tatter of sparkling glitter here and there!!  Beautiful faux garlands, wreaths and candle rings - Bittersweet Orange, Feed Corn Gold and Halloween Cat Black!  Love it all!
We are busy creating and decorating and trying to do everything at once...(you know how that goes) !! Planning Halloween workshops, open house treats, pricing everything (ugh)!! and time goes so fast when you are having fun.
Waiting on a couple more handmade orders - I think this will be our best Harvest Thyme Open House ever.  Hope you can join us -
