She also handcrafted these little heart pins!

Lots of heartfelt handmade items at Jersey Made.   Please think local for your Valentine gifts this year!!

Green Alternative

We did something new this year at Jersey Made on the day after Thanksgiving.   The Green Alternative Greeting Card Workshop was a huge success and many came by to make greeting cards, tags from recycled holiday cards and bows!!   It was open to kids of all ages and they paid just $1 per card made (including their envelope).    Cookies from Isabella’s and hot tea were served.

Supplies for several cards and samples were set out for everyone to use.    I demonstrated a few techniques for each of the groups that gathered.   Then they set out to create their own designs.

It was a great way to kick off the Christmas season and it is going to be on the schedule again for 2012!

Sorry I didn’t get photos of all of you but I think the few I did get show some of the creativity that was happening at Jersey Made that day!!!

 

 

 

 

Workshop Time Available

Do you want to create your own handmade gift items?

Many times doing this at home create obstacles….lurking eyes that will ruin your surprise project……a kitchen table piled high with other projects or holiday baking………guidance to take the idea in your head and make it into reality………..encouragement to get the project finished……I could probably go on and on!!

Jersey Made is offering you workshop space and I will be on hand to assist as needed and offer tools and/or supplies!     $10 per hour – just call to set up a time for yourself and the table will be ready for you!!   609-914-1536

Friday evenings are a great time to come since Jersey Made will be open until 8pm from now until Christmas!!    Why not come by right after work?

Need an idea?    Jersey Made now carries wooden letters, numbers, ornaments, crowns, and dog bones.    Just $5 each (special pricing of $4 each if you buy 5 or more).     Make a message like USA or a child’s name or create a decorative house number.   There are many ideas on how to crate them for that special person on your list.

Another large project during the holidays is creating handmade greetings to share with friends, family, co-workers.   Let’s not forget how nice it is to include a tip or gift card inside a custom created holiday card!!

Come use the classroom at Jersey Made as your workspace!   Bring a friend along and work together.

The ideas are endless.

Of course I will be here to assist however I can, answer questions, offer supplies or ideas.    Perhaps some hot tea with honey to help you along….

Hope your holidays are handmade and wonderful!

Call Jersey Made at 609-914-1536 with any questions or to set up your workshop time!     Schedule a few sessions to insure you have time to finish your projects!!!
