Week 180: OPEN

Tuesday, January 12, 2016


What a great week of simplicity we had last week!  The gallery was overflowing with beautiful, clean & simple designs!  Way to go!  We thought we'd try out another word that seems to go along with clean & simple design this week.  As usual, we'll leave it completely open to your interpretation!


Craft Classes Online is returning as our wonderful sponsor this week and is offering this week's winner a free seat to any of the online workshops found on the CCO website with a regular price of $25 or less!  (Winners have until the end of June 2016 to claim their prize.)


Craft Classes Online (CCO) brings multiple Creative Arts Instructors together on one site to provide students with the best choice in online craft workshops. 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 home and on their schedule.


Make sure to check out our blog, Everyday Moodlings, which offers a theme of the week and challenges us to use all of our craft supplies during the coming year. We offer ideas, tips, tutorials, and crafty inspiration.

We are excited to be sponsoring CASology blog. You can view our class list on our website at www.CraftClassesOnline.com. We continuously update our website with new workshops, so check back often.


Now let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
