School may be over, but at ellen j goods, the classes are just beginning!

Happy Friday! 
Well, we have been SO busy the past few months...getting our lake property liveable, working lots of hours gathering and restoring great pieces for ellen j goods and continuing our growing relationship with Fusion Mineral Paint and MudPaint. A few weeks ago, Lynne attended a two day training in Toronto to learn even more great things about Fusion Paint, including some great new techniques.

We are so excited about this group of workshops!  You will not only go home with completed projects, but you will have all the information you need to make even more projects! Our workshop setting is a great place to learn, laugh and be inspired. Feel free to stop by to see examples of all the class projects!
