Happy Monday Everyone!
Did you know that there are only18 days left until Christmas! Me either! I've got to get on that Christmas shopping!
Truthfully, I got a little behind this year 😅
What better place to grab some unique and amazing gifts from than Impulsive Creativity! There are some perks for working in the shop. Like not having to go far for presents! 😂 Normally, I get my Christmas presents way ahead of time. I'm taking about buying Christmas presents in July or August!
Are you all caught up on your Christmas shopping? Or are you like me and let this year get a little away from you in the present buying department? Let us know in the comments what kind of shopper you are!
Classes and Events
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!
You may notice that we are offering less classes as we move into the last part of this year. 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!
Christmas Shopping with Us!
Are you ready for the coming holiday season?
The physical store is open and ready for your Christmas shopping! We are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and then we are open for Holiday Hours on Sundays (just until Christmas!) from 1 - 5 p.m.
We also have our website up and running! This year has been difficult. We don't want shopping with us to add to that. For everyone who feels unsafe to go out in public to those that would rather just stay in their P.J.'s, we got you covered! We have several different tabs for you to shop from (just look in our Shop dropdown menu!). If you would like to just take a look of all the lovely, local art, click here!
Feel good by shopping local, and have the best gifts this year!
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!
Question for Our Creatives
This question is open for anyone to answer! If you are reading this blog and/or signed up to get our emails, you are one of Our Creatives! Get Social with Us or leave your answer in the comments 😊
What is some of the best advise that you have ever received?
Recently, one of the best things I've heard is "Take your judge robes off. You don't need to judge yourself so harshly to get things done." I don't know about you, but that hit me hard. I'm not one to judge those around me; normally I try to see the good in everyone! Well...everyone but myself. So here's me, just trying to give myself some slack and not striving for perfection, just striving for progress.
Whether your advice is new or old, share it with us! We're not judging this week! Leave your advice in the comments below or on one of social media pages by Getting Social with us! Check out how in the section below!

We hope that you have a wonderful week! Continue to be safe and calm as you go out and about on your Christmas adventures.
