This Sat. (Nov. 30)  is   SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!  We will have the same sales and refreshments again the day after Black Friday.

A  few facts about SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY--- Small businesses employ over 28 million people in the US!    1/2 of all US jobs are because of small businesses employers!   Every $1 spent at a small business generates $.52 back into our community! 
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SHOP LOCALLY AT OUR SMALL BUSINESSES BEFORE SHOPPING AT A BIG BOX STORE, or SHOPPING ONLINE!  It benefits our whole northern Colorado area, bringing more revenue for all of us who live here!  Small business owners and employees then spend their earned dollars locally for groceries, clothing, meals out,  etc.

AGAIN, our thanks go out to all of our customers who continue to pay us with cash or checks.  You have helped us spend much less on our credit card processing fees and we've added items to our inventory instead!

PLEASE remember to bring your own basic tool kit with you to every class, including free card making days!  It should include detail scissors, adhesives, pop dots, ruler, paper cutter, paper distresser, paper piercer, etc.  We do sell these at ARTSY, of course. 

Every student gets a 10% discount either right before or right after their scheduled class time.

Please remember to call and register, including payment at least 36 hours before class so that our instructors have time to prepare for each student.
