This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a handmade greeting
card workshop at a local art supply store. I learned about gold leafing, hot glue guns,
electric pens and most importantly, that people, no matter what their age, enjoy things
that glitter and shine. But I digress. I'm mentioning greeting cards in my Ewesletter
because my friend makes her own charming Christmas cards every year, no matter how busy
she gets and everytime I receive one I say to myself, "Next year...I'll make my own next
"So when this workshop came up, I thought, "Hey, it's last year's next year and this is the beginning of November -- I still have time. This year I'll do it!"
And here's your chance too. Homespunspa is a party-planning service which reveals natural recipes for sleep and beauty and this season we're offering special party themes that revolve around making greeting cards and gifts for the holidays. You can make bath bombs or bath salts or hand creams -- there are so many things you can learn to make yourself for less money and with more heart. So let's plan a party.
