Oh, have we got some GREAT Fall Workshops ahead!

It never ceases to amaze me how the season changes can sneak up on us so quickly!   JR and I are scrambling to get the last touches on our cottage so we can move in before snow flies!  Even though it was a terrific summer, come September, we are about ready to settle into our homes and start nesting again, right? And nesting means adding some warm touches like plaids and woodsy elements, antlers and pumpkins, and of course a new rustic sign or two. 

Today I had to run a few errands which took me to a big chain craft/home decor store. There were signs and pumpkins EVERYWHERE!  But what did I  notice?  They all looked sort of the same. Flat, mass-produced and, well, uninteresting. And I thought, we can do so much better than this!


Probably the thing we've been most excited about is a new addition to the Fusion Mineral Paint line, called FUSION FRESCO.  I've shown lots of furniture and decor items done with this paint texture additive, and yes, you can probably sense my  crazy love for this product.  I'm offering a few classes where YOU get to use FRESCO and create some really rustic, textured signs that you are going to LOVE.

Not to mention that pumpkins are everywhere! And they are NOT just for Halloween! Pumpkins have become a staple of fall decor and we are offering a fun workshop which will take your faux pumpkins to a whole new level.
