Art and Papercrafting Gift Guide 2016

The holiday shopping season is fast coming up on us…and since I regularly get questions anyway about getting “started” with a variety of mediums, I’m tackling a bunch here. It’s not exhaustive – but it’s a start, and in the video I share a bunch of ideas for things you can do personally to help people get a little education too. Let’s go!Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Gift a Class! (Or get one for yourself!)

Choose a gift class – at a $2 discount until Dec 24th at midnight – to give as a Christmas gift! I will send an email on Christmas morning telling your recipient that you’ve provided them with this class, so be sure to put your recipient’s address in the notes section when you order. And after you purchase the class, in your receipt you will receive a link to a PDF you can print out as a “gift certificate” to wrap up! (Note: I don’t think I can tell them in the email who the class was gifted by, so you’ll need to let them know that yourself.) If you wish to gift a class at another time of year, just email me and we can arrange that manually.
