FREE Craft Party

Our friends at the 817ArtsAlliance are hosting a FREE Craft Party next month!

Inspired by Etsy, the DFW Artisans' Craft Party gives you an opportunity to get in touch with your creative side.

WHEN: Saturday, June 18th, 2016; 2:30-5:00pm

WHERE: Sparks Studio of Creative Arts, 509 West Main Street, Arlington, Texas

Join in a fun afternoon of crafting and great company. The first 20 attendees will receive a swag bag. You can pick up promotional literature from the event's sponsors and see a display of some creations by the artisans that helped put together the craft party, along with their business cards. Light snacks will be provided.

Two colorful, free, make and take crafts will be available. Neither is very difficult. There will be volunteers on hand to give instructions and assistance as needed. Share your creations on social media using #EtsyCraftParty

While you don't have to sign up to participate, it will help the organizers have enough supplies and snacks on hand if you will let them know you are coming by claiming your FREE ticket for Etsy Craft Party: Arlington on Eventbrite.

Coloring For All Seasons - Spring

Coloring books, specifically adult coloring books, are currently all the rage. I was browsing the book section at a big box store the other day & there was a massive section full of very nice coloring books with various themes. If you search online, you will find tons of free coloring pages. However, if you don't have access to a printer or want a unique gift for someone, a coloring book is the way to go.

I recently received Coloring For All Seasons - Spring, a beautiful coloring book from Greenleaf Book Group, for review. It is a wonderful book full of magical Spring illustrations perfect for celebrating the season of rebirth. There are many claims that coloring is a wonderful way to relax & unwind. According to the book's description on Amazon, by concentrating on specific patterns and hues, coloring can unlock creative potential and help alleviate stress. Sounds good to me...and it's a lot cheaper than therapy! So grab a copy so you too can ‪#‎ColorAndChill‬
