You're not done finding deals though 😉
TODAY is our FIRST Cyber Monday! Make sure to check out the "Classes and Events" section below to see all the details on that!
We also have something very special happening on Tuesday...you know what, why don't I just let you read about what's going on this week 😂 Can you tell I'm excited?
Classes and Events
Today is Our First Cyber Monday! Head on over to our website for some sweet deals! It will only be for Monday, only be online, and only with the artists that have given permission for their work to be on discount. So make sure to check those items out before they're gone!
The first of December is National Holiday: Giving Tuesday. This year, we thought we would do something special for this holiday. As many of you know, one of our artists is battling a health issue right now. Her name is Ginger Stuart! She is our Artist of the Month for November (click the link to read more about her) and just such a wonderful lady.
We wanted to do something special for her, so for Giving Tuesday we are asking for your support. At the shop, we will be matching all of her item's sales dollar for dollar to help pay for her hospital bills. Another one of our artists, Chris Hamblen, is donating all the sales from his items to go to help her as well! She also has a GoFundMe page.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Click here to see the event information. We will also be doing something on our Facebook page for her this Tuesday, so be looking out for that!
Join us at the shop for our Holiday Hours! We will be here from 1-5 p.m. so that you can get some extra time to check off all that holiday shopping you have! Whoever is behind the counter will be more than happy to help you pick out the perfect gift. Come on by and say hi!
For those that are wondering about having classes with us, we are taking it as a case-by-case basis right now. We want to make sure that everyone who comes in the store, students and instructors alike, feel comfortable and safe while taking classes with us.
As we go into fourth quarter, we are mindful about the developments of the virus, mindful about the health and safety of those physically being in the store, and for the time commitment involved in teaching/taking one of our classes. This is a very busy time of year for the store and something we will have to keep in mind as we move forward into the holiday season.
Thank you for being patient as we continue to work to bring you the best products and courses for the time that we are in.
If you have any questions that were not answered here, please contact us however you are comfortable and we will be happy to answer them!
Shopping with Us!
There are so many options to shop with us now! We have been dedicated during the virus to make multiple options for you to still connect and shop with us. There is even a page where you can get to know the artists that your favorite items come from!
Let us know how we're doing on this front in the comments! Is there a shopping page that you would like to see? Is there one that has made your life super easy? We would really appreciate your feedback!
Shopping On or Off Line
In person or online, you will still find handmade artwork made by local artists. We just made it a little easier to find all that wonderful artwork! See all the options by hovering your mouse over the Shop option at the top of our normal website scree. It'll give you a drop-down menu of all our shopping options! Or you can check out this blog post to read about them!
About Phase 3
The Governor has continued with Phase 3! For now. We will keep you posted here what Phase we are in to help keep you safe as you start shopping for the holidays!
We have been working hard to make sure that we are following the states guidelines and incorporating the Phase 3 requirements. Our goal is to make sure that you feel safe, healthy, and have a great time shopping with us.
If you have questions about how Phase 3 is being shown at the store, click here to be taken to the blog post where I go in depth about the things we've been doing to make sure everyone stays safe. We are more than happy to answer any of your questions about Phase 3 and the store.
Artist of the Month
We released November's Artist of the Month last week!
We welcome Ginger Stuart to this month's Artist of the Month! She is an artist of many talents, including: stained glass, fiber arts, and other 3D works. This special lady is going through a hard time right now. She gave us permission to share with all of you what is going on right now.
Make sure to click here to read more about her and her story.
You'll also be able to read about what Impulsive Creativity is doing to help her and her family out during this month, how you can help, and how to get updates on her condition.
P.S. If you buy anything from the artist Chris Hamblen, he says that he wants to help Ginger as much as possible as well. So all orders from this artist will go to help with Ginger's hospital bills as well! We have such an amazing community! A special Thank You to Chris!
P.S.S. Tuesday we have an event scheduled to help support Ginger and her family during the holiday season! Make sure to see what's going on for Tuesday this week!
