Pinning OUR Way

A new class at Jersey Made!!!

Mary Kay and Holly have been creating items found on Pinterest. Combined with our lifetimes of being crafting women we have altered and adjusted as we went along. This is not a Pinterest-fail class at all!!! All projects are made ahead of time so you can see the finished result.
Flower wreathThis is a brand new class and will be held on Thursday July 31st and then monthly on the 3rd Thursday (8/21,9/18,10/16 etc) Cost is $20 and that includes all the supplies you will need. So just sign up, come to class and take home a finished project!

Our July project is this awesome wreath created from paper towel tubes. It just doesn’t even look like a recycled project!! Holly tested this project with the Kids Recreate class on ages 5,8,12 and 16. Plus she made one herself (notice I am not mentioned my age – hehe). So this one has been well tested and it came out beautiful!!!

Exciting UPDATE for kids

Happy National Recycling Day!

This seemed like the perfect day to announce a big exciting change at Jersey Made.    Our Kids Art classes are getting a re-do!!!

Please join me in celebrating Kids Recreate – Arts and crafts with a focus on recycling.    We will continue to have classes for kids on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.   When there is an event we will still have a project available on the table in the classroom so that adults and kids can still do some creating.    An additional class will be held on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5pm so kids can come after school if that is more convenient!

The main change is the focus of the class.   Since Holly Doyle is an avid recycler many of the projects have been created from materials that we have recycled.    We will be kicking that into high gear and thinking much greener.

Join us!

Registration is still requested.   Please call 609-914-1536 or email to

Kids Recreate - 11-2013b

October Special – Fall Into Drawing

Join us every Sunday in October for a special drawing workshop at Jersey Made.

Fall into Drawing

October 6, 13, 20, & 27 from 1:30 to 3:30

Teacher:  Holly Doyle

Several years ago I took a workshop series called 3D:Your Whole Life based on the book and workbook.    One of the assignments included an exercise from a book by Sybil MacBeth called Praying in Color.    Her ideas really caught on for me and I began using my drawing as a way to think about those who needs my prayers and good thoughts or to express my thankfulness.   It helps me to consider those who are on my mind and in my heart.

This class was inspired by my enjoyment of the Praying in Color book.   Although purchasing the book is not required for class, it certainly is recommended reading.  I will cover a variety of basic drawing techniques that are intended for the beginner or novice (maybe advanced students will pick up some tips as well).  Come enjoy learning some of the techniques I have tried out – from doodles to zentangles and everything in between.   There is much for us to learn each week whether you use this class for praying or just making art.

Workshop fee:   $15 which includes all the supplies that you will need.   If you have a favorite drawing tablet or implements of color then feel free to bring them along but I have plenty to share with everyone! (Doesn’t everyone own more than 10 colored pencils sets?  hehe)

Please RSVP to or call Jersey Made at 609-914-1536.   The class size will be limited to we need to know you are coming!!

Kids & Bunnies

At Kids Art this Saturday we had a bunch of fun creating bunnies and flowering trees.   We are hoping the springy crafts will encourage the weather to be a little bit warmer!



John had the most interesting creations.  Good for him for standing out from the crowd of girls!!!


After a few adjustments Isabel’s bunny had the perfect ears!!   Her little spring trees are next to her on the step.


Nicky’s bunny had a whole bunch of character. I found a flower tree on the table that she left for me!


Suzanne did an awesome job with her creations!


Rebecca is a Kids Art pro and did 4 spring trees in addition to her bunny!

Special thanks to Brittany who helped us out today!   🙂

Kids Art is held the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.    Just $15 which includes supplies.   Mention if you are part of a military family for your discount.   Call Jersey Made if you have any questions or would like to register for Kids Art!
