JOY JOY JOY AND LOTS MORE JOY!!

That is what it was all about last evening at our JOY BANNER workshop.  (wish I knew who to give credit for this fun design).  We changed it a bit but the idea I think came from Pinterest.  You have to understand I have NO time for Pinterest BUT have great friends and shopkeepers who will send me pictures of things they think I would love.  They are always right and always inspiring - so thank you friends for that!!
Now about last evening. 
What a fun night...the rain, sleet and threat of snow did not stop anyone from coming and having some JOY!!  Here are some pictures...a couple of the gals were new to our workshops and never made a rosette or distressed anything - and they were "fabulous"...hmmmm maybe it was the instructor that was fabulous...(I am really smirking and rolling my eyes at me right now)!!
Cutting out those J's and Y's ( really a lot of cutting and gluing in our workshops...and oh...
 ..lots of glittering too!!!
You could hear a "pin" drop while everyone is concentrating....that doesn't last long though...(smiling)
 ..yep - quiet on this side of the room too!
 ..okay...here comes the chatter and laughter!
 ..except April...she was in deep thought making sure her rosettes were perfect!
...friends helping friends...!!!
..and a sweet newcomer - Shay - who did a great job!
 JUST LOOK AT ALL THE JOY!!
This is our Attic Studio...and yes the roof slants but those bent necks are on tall girls....LOL!!! (I didn't make them stand there long)!!!

HOPE THE RIGHT PEOPLE READ THIS....



Lies may be powerful if believed - but the truth is so rewarding if you have morals and ethics....some do - some don't  - My Mom taught me both and for that I am thankful...!

Cost - $8.00 - all supplies included!
 
Please email (cinnamonstick@comcast.net) or call the store 215j-541-7907 to save your seat!

THE MORNING AFTER...

....a big night of creating with a great bunch of girls.  Last evening we had our Winter Bottle Workshop!  Ten creative and fun gals attended and boy was the glitter flying...I think at least half a pound left the building  (and not all on the bottles) (big smile here)!!
I make up samples and kits for the girls to copy - but ALWAYS they come up with unique and fun ways to make the samples better.  AND, our youngest girl is always one of the most creative.  I know I don't have a picture with me today of what she came up with but I will add it later tonight. 
Here are some pictures - but bear with me - NO ONE likes me to get the camera out and they hide...well they try too!!
...getting started

...cut, distress, glue

...glitter table

...happy workers

...no one could hide this time!

...some of the finished bottles - so impressive!

...and some more!

We used vintage music pages for the wings and Kathy's copy had this title...so perfect for her angel bottle!

CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE...

It was a great open house last week, and we are truly grateful for everyone who came to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season with us!  We purchase from some of the most creative artists and I love displaying their craftsmanship at The Cinnamon Stick.  They always come up with "new and unique" art that helps us be different than the same old same old!  Thank you girls!!!

New goodies are still coming in - and I am working hard to keep the shelves and counters filled!   I love this time of the year as JOY is in the air and also one of our upcoming workshops...pictures soon!

This Friday is our Winter Bottle Class and I will be sure to post pictures.  I am working on extra kits for our Keep Calm & Create Thursday workshops if you are interested visit our picturetrail (just click on the sidebar picture and it will take you there)!
A few open house pictures -


Winter Bottles - the girls will "design" their own on the blank bottle!  Should be lots of fun !!!
