BIG PLANS - Craft Explosion in October

Ok ladies, sorry things have been a little slow around here.  If you missed my last post, I'm moving {just up the street by the way}.  So check here for details for our August and September classes.

October 11 at my new home

But I need your help!!!

Here's my vision:
Time frame:  {help me decide}
1 Night - Oct 11
2 Sessions each 1 1/2 hours long
3 Classes available in each session


2 Nights - Oct 11 and 12
1 Session 3 hours long each night
3 Classes available in each session

To have each person to be able to complete 2 projects
To have 5 instructors who will teach 1 class and also be able to do an additional project of their choosing
To have each instructor do a run-through project for their class with me prior to teaching

Class Choice:
Each instructor will be able to choose their own class to teach among the following listed projects.
That's how the classes will be determined.  Someone volunteers to teach the class, the class will be offered. Each instructor will decide what supplies you will bring and what supplies they will provide.  They will collect money from you if they choose to purchase supplies in advance for the class.

Class Project Choices -  oooohhh I'm so excited.  I am loving our options!!!  oh the fun we'll have.

Delight Twinkle Board

Faux Metallic Letter

Anthropologie Printer Letter Stand

Magnetic Inspiration Board

Silhouette Embroidery Hoops

I will be teaching this silhouette class! 

Plasti-Dip Fun

Lamp Shades

Marquee Letter

Radiator Grate Jewelry Organizer

Chicken Wire Display Frame

Crystal Necklace

Sail Away with Me Necklace

Measuring Tape Bracelet

probably available as a side station, since would be quick to make

Final Thoughts:
Don't you just want to dive in!!!  Some of these would be perfect for yourself and some of them for others as great Christmas presents.

If you would like to do a project in particular, think about teaching it.  We will do a run-through beforehand at my house a separate time, so there's no need to fear and your guaranteed a finished project for yourself.

I've never attempted anything like this at all, so would love your feedback.  Let me know your thoughts on 1 nights or 2.

Start spreading the word!  We first need instructors, so ask all your crafty friends to contact me about being an instructor.

2 Classes added so far: Radiator Grate Jewelry Holder taught by Susi Munton and Silhouette Embroidery Hoop taught by me.

See a project you are wanting to do, volunteer to teach it!! We'll do one together first earlier in the month so you'll know how to teach it and you're guaranteed a completed project. You'll be great!

4th Class taught by Danielle Dwelley - either the Delight Twinkle Board {you could do it with any word} or the Marquee Letter

If you have a preference between this two, please let your voice be heard!

Briana, this is awesome! This is Heather(Erin's sister and Vanessa's friend) I've heard a lot about these and I'd love to take part, I've been invited before and haven't been able to come yet! If you need anymore instructors let me know, I could do the jewelry if you wanted, I have jewelry tools we could use too. I could definitely do the 11th and try to make the 12th work too. No prob if not not tho, I'll come and craft away instead! ;) Really cute projects! My email is

We have had a 7th instructor, Heather Andres, volunteer to do the Crystal Necklace and Measuring Tape Bracelet.

So excited! Watch for more details to come!!!
