This month, March, Create celebrates The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow. For many of us, miniature projects are what we often use to comfort or distract us when life’s storms come. The joy they give us is our personal Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow. And, for many, March means St. Patrick’s Day, Irish cottages, and the leprechauns' Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow. The challenge this month is to send a picture and a sentence or two about YOUR kind of pot of gold to Preble at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll send you a gift for participating. And, by the way, we really appreciate it when you remember to include your address. For challenge details, click here. To see the challenge submissions, click here.
There are five Creative Offerings available for signups during March. Ginger Landon Siegel is teaching Annabelle Goes to Paris on the 4th. Carolyn Eiche is teaching a traditional Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner on the 18th. And Alician Pearce is teaching the Rainbow Bridge on the 26th. In April, Cat Wingler is teaching an Easter Bunny doll and Sam Murray is teaching an Art Deco roombox. Click here for information on all of the Create-ive Offerings.
We are offering a brand new Create Shares with Laura Miller on making your own wallpaper using Microsoft Word on the 5th. Check the Create Shares page for links and times.
