Valentines Day Makerie Workshop

Hello my friends.  I feel like I've been a way for so long but it's not been quite a week yet.  Our whole household got hit with that awful nasty flu bug.  I held out the longest but finally got bit on Saturday.  I am feeling almost back to my old self so hopefully now I can officially celebrate the New Year!


Like most of you, I have so many plans and a few changes that I would like to see happen in 2015.  One of those is more workshops with fewer people in them in.


I have learned in the last couple of years that I need to know my limits and stick with them.  I love having women in my home and I love to teach.  The best number for me to feel connected to is right around 8-10.  Any more than that and I start to lose that one on one aspect and I don't like that feeling.


You see, if you come to my home for a workshop I don't want it to just be about learning a craft (anyone can log onto pinterest and do that) I want it to be about feeling like you are sitting with friends and enjoying an evening together.


A few appetizers, maybe a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and you get to take home a couple of cute things that you made for yourself.  What could be better than that?


So with all that said, I have officially launched my first workshop of the year, a Valentines Day Makerie.


We will be making these adorable Valentine Trees, which could easily be adapted to any holiday, and painted ball jars.  (I mean who doesn't need yet another reason to collect ball jars, right?)  Neither of these ideas are original to me and you can find my sources here on my "My Valentine" pinterest board.

I just love a good craft night, don't you?

xo, Patty

This is normally the place where I would invite you to join me but I leaked the event on my FB page last night and it is already sold out.  Eeeeek!  Didn't expect that to happen.

  3. These crafts are just adorable! As a fellow craft night host-how do you let others know about it and get people to sign up? My local peeps just aren't signing up for things like I'd wish…it's all my faraway friends that won't to come but can'!

  5. Sounds like a really fun evening. I can only imagine how I would enjoy sitting and crafting with you. A Valentine tree...so cute, and the painted ball jars would be fun too. I love Valentines Day and decorating for it. It's no wonder your class filled so quickly. Have fun.

  6. This gets me in the mood to decorate for Valentines Day. Since moving, I'm still getting things in order and have a corner in my kitchen that I want to celebrate each holiday. Hmmmm. This might be the time to do just that.
    Thanks for the inspiration!
