Updated 12/11/16

I have some great news for our 12 Days of Christmas participants.Thank you to all who shared, it worked. The elves have been over the top busy and the packages are on their way. The 12 Days of Christmas will soon be there. Remember you can start whenever is convenient for you. If you don't receive your package on Monday don't panic, t will be there soon. We only put starting dates on the opening of each video. It took this elf a little longer than expected to get everything painted but I hope you enjoy the extra effort. Everyone who participated will receive the bonus online project!!!!




It's Laurie’s 2016 Twelve Days of Christmas

You are familiar with countdown activities where you open a "gift" each day of the countdown. Our countdown works in a similar manner. Starting December 8th large priority envelopes will be mailed with 12 sealed envelopes inside. Each envelope contains a pattern, instructions, color photo AND THE SURFACE OR KIT. There are even videos for each project. All the projects are NEW and have never been published. They are all holiday ornaments this year and we have included some additional extras to help make it even easier to create the projects.  This year we are again including our EXCLUSIVE STENCILS that you are going to need to do the projects.  This has been a huge hit with our participants.

Each day starting December 12th and ending December 23rd. You can open the day's envelope.

NOTE: If your schedule does not allow you to work on this now, no problem.  You will be able to work at your own pace in the future and the videos will be there for you for up to one year. That gives you plenty of time to paint. If you are not into videos, you don't have to worry; you are getting all the printed materials, photos and surfaces for each project in the envelope. No downloading or printing needed. So if you are too busy now, don't worry you can start when your schedule permits. If you are an overachiever there is nothing I can do from stopping you from ripping into the envelopes ahead of time and paint!!!!

It is easy to participate:

1.     Register online or give us a call to register.  The registration fee is just $75 which includes US priority shipping. The retail value is over $150. Canadian registration is $90 due to higher priority shipping costs.  Early-bird registrations qualify for a bonus 13th project, surface and video.*

2.     Starting December 8th priority envelopes will be mailed to participants with the goodies. You will be given written instructions, addresses and codes for getting additional online materials in your packets.

3.     To participate during the "live" event, open your envelopes in numerical order. One per day. If you are not participating each day, you can join in anytime during or after the live event. You will be able to open any of the days in any order after the entire live event is done. Online materials will go up in order, each morning at 8 am CST. Once they are up, they will remain available for at least one year.  You have unlimited access.

So join us for this holiday event that will be unprecedented! Packages will ship in the order they are received, so order early and get your materials first.

 Remember you even get the surfaces and exclusive stencils!

12 projects...12 surfaces... 12 patterns...12 videos…EXCLUSIVE stencils…

There are new lessons to learn and techniques to try.  All new designs...oh my!

You WANT MORE…To make this a true success, I want to beat records. As most of you know I am extremely competitive. Last year we broke records and everyone benefited and I want to do it again.  I will need your help by letting all your painting friends know about our event and encourage them to join you by ordering their kit too. 

This year we are giving bonus items for meeting goals. 

If we exceed the number of participants that we had last year and I will provide an additional downloadable pattern and video for all participants to enjoy online.  So share my posts and notify your friends, painting groups and post on your Facebook pages.  Let people know how much you have enjoyed past countdowns and share past projects.  Let's get the word out and I will reward you all for it. So it is important to participate and spread the word.  Orders will be filled in the order they are received so enroll early. Watch our Facebook posts for prizes being given away during early registration. 

Check back to see our progress and how quickly we meet our goals.

Hope you join us, it is going to be fun...
