Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year!  I hope 2018 is off to a great start for you!  That week between Christmas and the new year sure pass by quickly didn’t it?  Wow!

As you probably noticed, I decided to take a little break from blogging, and work in general, during the last week.  I spent time focusing on some painting and organizing that needed to be done around the house.

I am ready to get back to a normal schedule now, however, and I’m getting super excited about upcoming classes!  I purchased items for some of our decor classes the other day and my brain is busy preparing!

If you notice the picture, this is a little sneak peek at the Snow Decor piece we’re going to start making in class this Thursday.  Check back tomorrow and I’ll have the finished project for you to see.  You’re going to like it!

In the meantime, I want to make sure you’re ready for Sale-A-Bration which starts on Wednesday and continues through March 31!

During Sale-A-Bration, you can earn exclusive free products with every qualifying purchase. You will reap the rewards when you shop, host, or join during Sale-A-Bration.
