Blossom Tinkerings Workshop coming soon to the studio!

                   ("Kiwi" by Mindy Lacefield)

Living in small town Arkansas definitely has its advantages.  One of those is the presence of community.  Folks here always come through for one another anytime there is a need.  Opportunities, however, often have to be made.  
In late 2009 a small group of cohorts gathered with me in my grandparents 'party room' and together we launched our first monthly Craft Night Out.  
Since then we have painted, glued, soldered, hammered, sewn, sanded, stapled, ALL WHILE laughing, visiting, sharing, eating AND drinking.  We've been tangled in burlap,  lost in paperclay, and smeared in paint.  We are having a ball! 
A few months ago we moved to the studio.  Our group has grown along with our creative appetites.  Which leads me to this post.  This March's CNO is HONORED to have Mindy Lacefield at the studio.  She will be leading her Blossom Tinkerings Workshop on the 25th.  I can hardly contain my excitement! I've admired her artwork in several of my favorite publications for a while, AND guess what?? She is from right up the road, a mere 50 miles away! AND she went to college here! AND she has family here!  She graciously accepted an invitation to put together and teach this workshop.  The next CNO just can't get here fast enough! This is going to be FaBuLoSo!!
