Egg Shell Art

Would you believe I took some egg shells (instead of throwing them away I washed them and dried them) some alchohol ink and a lot of time and created something beautiful?

Well, I did, you just can not see it yet.  It is drying!
This picture is to tease you and I also want to know, would you prefer a VIDEO tutorial or PHOTO tutorial on how I did it?

Enjoy the picture and then comment which you prefer.

used watercolor paper, swiped it with white acrylic paint and after it was dry I sprayed with Lindy's sprays and then splatted a starburst dauber to make the "splatter" marks in green.

August Mystery Hostess Party & other updates

Hello Kraafters!

We are starting something new...each month I will start a party link on my CTMH (Close To My Heart) website for all to order from.  On the last day of ordering (usually the last day of the month) I will draw one name from the list of those that have ordered.  That winner will get to be the hostess for that party!  THAT MEANS FREE STUFF!  HALF OFF ITEMS TOO!

So, here is how it works...
Go to this link Kraaft Shaak Online and click on the monthly Mystery Hostess party link.
Order your goods - anything over $1!
Share the link with all your friends, because the party needs to be over $150 to get a hostess chosen!
and then wait for your name to be drawn.
While you wait, make a wish list of all the goodies you want just in case you win  :)

What else are we doing at the Kraaft Shaak?

Gearing up for the fall schedule.  I am excited to announce we will offer After School Art classes this year for kids under 13.  I am so excited about this.  We will run 4 weeks at a time during the year with a small break for holidays and so on.  It is my intention to offer smaller bite sized calsses that you will only need to attend the four classes being offered at a time rather than an ongoing year long class.

The registration for this class is in the Shaak noon - 9 pm Thursday- Saturday in August OR you may register 24 hours a day on our Events and Shedules tab above.  Just fill out the form for EACH little one you wish to attend.  That is also a good place to see the entire month schedule and sign yourself up for one of our adult offerings as well.

Two Saturdays a month we are hosting all day kraafting for only $10.  See all the details on the events page click ont he calendar for more info.
I will have pictures up real soon with samples of the up coming projects and workshops.
Thanks for stoppping by...we look forward to Kraafting with you soon!
