Boy! I have let the time get away with me. Truth be told…I push myself to get through the holidays and I really needed a bit of a sort of “down” time. I still worked but did take a couple Mondays/Tuesdays off. They’re posted closed as closed days anyways. We did manage to have our first completed class! Yay! All went very well in our Chalk Paint 101 class. Everyone learned the basics of painting and even got some demonstrations of the amazing line of Iron Orchid Designs products. After painting, eating and drinking and socializing, they happily brought home their completed pieces. We are looking forward to doing more fun classes.

Meet Manuela! We are blessed to have met this talented young woman. She will be spending some time at our little shop. Manuela is a graduate of Otis Parsons School of Design in Industrial Design and currently works as a Project Manager for a local paint company. She felt very inspired upon stumbling upon our store a couple weeks ago and will be “interning” with us at her leisure. Wait ’til you meet her. She is a lovely gal with the sweetest personality.
