Last Week of September Already?

Can you believe that September is already leaving us and that October is on it's way?  It seems like September just started!  The end of September brings Christmas all too close.  Have you started thinking about your gift list and what you are going to make for people? NO? Well you better get started because with our busy lives time will fly and it will be the week before Christmas before you know it. 

We have some wonderful classes coming up this month to get your mind started in that direction. We have two fabulous classes coming up this week. On Friday night from 5:30-9:00 Amy will be teaching the Fall Foliage Earring Class.  This class is awesome!  Amy will be teaching students how to metal stamp copper with design stamps, how to dome and patina their pieces, how to punch holes in their metal, and finally how to add fun embellishments to make these earrings dazzle.  This is a great class for anyone who wants to try their hand at Metal Stamping. Each student will leave with their own design stamp and more copper blanks will be available for purchase because we know that you will want to make more!  This class is $36.00 and includes all of your supplies.
The Second great class for this week is the Diamond Windows Bracelet on Saturday from 10-1.  This class is $30.00 and includes all of your supplies. This project is so much fun because the bracelet can be made into a ring or earrings or even a necklace.  It has tons of possibilities!  This class is great for beginner to advanced beaders.  Students will need to arrive 15 minutes early to pick out their colors.
Did you see last weeks technique video on the website?  If not, then you need to check it out.  Last week I taught how to do Peyote Stitch.  Sammy is busy trying to get this week's video uploaded.  This week I am teaching how to make a fantastic dutch spiral bracelet that uses size 11 seed beads, size 8 seed beads, and 4mm bicone crystals.  This bracelet takes no time at all to make and it would make a wonderful gift.  Be sure to check back later on in the week and I will try and have it ready for you to watch. 

I hope that each of you have a fantastic week!
