December Classes & Happenings!!

Can it really be that time of year already?!?!?  Hot cocoa (or toddies if you prefer!), cozy fires at the fireplace, friends and family happenings...and of course a little organized chaos to keep your metabolism revved up!   Please don't forget to give yourself a little break during the holidays to simply breathe and smile.  So very important to take care of yourself during this hectic time.  What better way to do just that than by taking a class or two at Artsy this month???  With all the craziness, we did roust up a few marvelous classes to help you relax, smile, AND even possibly check off a couple of people on your gift-giving list this year!  Especially those hard-to-buy-for folks.  We all have a couple, right?  How can you go wrong with handmade????  Check it all out below and call (970-613-1631) or visit the store now to get registered for your faves.   OH, and don't forget that ARTSY sells GIFT CERTIFICATES too for that special papercrafter in your life. You can purchase them in any denomination - and remember to drop a hint or two (or three!) to that Santa of yours.  He can swing by the store and be done with your gift in about 10 minutes - stress free!!  
Merry Christmas to all of you and be sure to watch your email often this month for some great holiday specials!  Enjoy!
