Happy Monday everyone!
How are you holding up during this time?
We are being productive (as much as we can) and trying to bring you guys as many options to hang out with us, without breaking proper social distancing protocol! Speaking of, we have so many ways to try and help you out.
Especially with some exciting news about our YouTube channel!
We also have some things in the works about a charity that you can participate in!
So, let's get into this week and all the fun things we have planned!
Classes and Events
Wednesday evening we will be having a Live Stream on our Facebook page! We started hosting an items Live Stream at 6 p.m. so that you can see the items that we have in the store without having to leave the comfort of your home to check out our products! Each Live Stream will have a theme (normally by art type) that we will be showcasing for your convenience. Join us in supporting the local arts and being together as a community!

Our YouTube channel is HERE!
We were able to get our YouTube channel up and running! Our first video is out and ready for you to enjoy! Let us know what you think by leaving us a comment on that video!
Coming up, we will have more instructional videos and crafts for you to be able to do while stuck at home.
The link to our channel is down below in the "Let's Get Social!" section of this blog post. Like and Subscribe to us there!
We need your help getting the word out about our Live Stream and Virtual Classes coming up!
Please like and share the events that are on the website, or on our social media pages. That is the best way that you can help us (other than doing what you can to take the classes or tune into the Live Stream!) so that we can continue to create amazing content for you guys as health concerns continue to rise.
Shopping with Us!
Are you local? Want to get out of the house, but protect yourself from getting sick? We have just the thing! Come Window Shop with Us!
We have decorated our windows specifically with things that will be coming up in future Live Streams as a "sneak peek" just for you! All of our information is on the window, so if you see something you like, you can contact us directly! Super easy, just for you guys, and you'll be able to stretch your legs for a minute.
Check out our Online Shop!
We have been working hard to get all the lovely artwork we have in the shop online so that you can still support local artists! We're adding items as fast as we can! For all of our Creatives that are not local, this is for you especially! So make sure to check out the Shopping page here on our website!
Face Masks and Local Charity!
One of our amazing artists have been working overtime to hand make face masks for the local doctors and for our store! These are high quality, come in adult and children sizes, and are reversible. Seriously, these are amazing!
We are only charging enough to pay the artist for her time and a couple cents extra to cover purchase fees. The couple cents that would have been profit for us, will be given to a local charity of our choice that has been doing amazing work during the CONVID-19 outbreak.
If you would like to purchase one of these masks, make sure to follow us on our Facebook page! We will be letting you know when we get new masks in and you will be able to purchase them by sending us a private message (or leaving a comment for us) on there. Because of the high demand for these masks, they will be first-come first-serve, and will NOT be offered on our website store (because of the high turnover).
Artist of the Month
You may have thought it was a joke...but we weren't kidding! I am this month's Artist of the Month!
Read my meta blog post here and enjoy learning more about the one who is writing these blog posts, and sometimes even answering you on social media!
This month, the deal I'm offering is going to be coming out with YouTube tutorials for you to be able to do at home. You will have easy access to my lessons, and you will be able to do them from the comfort of your home! Paint along with me as we craft and ignore our problems...like normal adults!
Question for Our Creatives
This week, we have two questions! We thought it wouldn't be bad though because they're connected to each other. We know that a lot of people are battling with anxiety during this time, and we wanted to know what you're doing to deal with it.
What are you doing for your mental health and how do you relax during this virus time period?
Shout out to those of you who were handling a mental battle before all of this hit. To anyone how feels like they are not handling this well, you are! We are proud of all the work you have put in and what you are doing every day. You got this! Please reach out if you need someone to talk to. (We have to put here that we are NOT licences professions and CANNOT give you advice, we just want you to know we are here for you if you just need someone to talk to.)
Let's Get Social
Do you have a question or an idea? Let us know! Leave a commit below, sign up for our email list, or follow us on Social Media!
Here's a link to our Facebook page!
One for our Instagram page!
And one for our YouTube channel!
Practicing social distancing is great for not spreading the virus, but we miss being able to see you in the store! Reach out to us on your favorite social media platform, or send us an email, so that we can still talk to you!
We hope that you have a great week, that you can just chill a little, and that you hang out with us on social media! Don't let this virus get you down!
