Week 112: THREE


Three's usually a crowd, but not when it comes to clean and simple design!  We're going to find out what this number makes you think of!  Interpret away!

Before we take a look at the design team and guest designer inspiration, we want to welcome back one of our sponsors!  Previously known as My Creative Classroom, Craft Classes Online is joining us this week and offering our winner a free seat to a Workshop class valued at $25 or less!  Since they've changed their name, we thought you might like a little update about them!

Craft Classes Online (CCO) brings multiple Creative Arts Instructors together on one site to provide students with the best choice in online craft workshops. Classes are advertised on the CCO website, but are paid for and held on individual instructor's blog/website. This enable instructors to have more freedom and flexibility in their independent businesses. 

Our instructors offer online workshops that are engaging, affordable, and time-saving. Students from across the globe can learn any number of techniques and creative projects from the comfort of their own home and on their schedule.

We will relaunch our blog, My Creative Life 2014, on September 15, 2014, where we issue challenges to help us use all of our craft supplies during the year.

We are excited to be sponsoring CASology Blog. You can view our class list on our website at www.CraftClassesOnline.com. We are bringing in more instructors throughout the fall, so check back often. Sign up for our newsletter. Visit us on our Facebook page, too!
