So it begins. We have our lease signed, our website up, and a social media presence. Does that make it official or what?!
Tis’ the season for gatherings with friends, family, loved ones, and maybe those you don’t care too much about. We wish we could be open this holiday season so you all could come in to make your gifts! But it’s looking like we’ll be opening early 2017. You can keep up to date with us by subscribing to our email list here.
As our gift to you, we would like to offer a simple and inexpensive project: A Himmeli ornament. Himmeli Ornaments were traditionally made from straw and hung over a family’s table from Christmas through summer to ensure the best of a harvest season. Since we don’t live on a farm (unfortunately), we’ve made them from straws of a different sort and painted them to look, oh, so fancy!
If you live in Portland the best way to acquire any of your art supplies in the least wasteful way possible, is to hit up SCRAP PDX. It is the type of place dreams are made of. And, yes they have straws and string right now! (It's what we made this project with.)
Please be sure to share this post with those crafty (and not so crafty) folks in your life!
