Updated 11/30/22

Laurie wants to revise the chunky box program so box 9 Holiday Box will be the last box under the current program. Paypal released some of the invoices for box 10 early. We have canceled all the invoices. If you paid for box 10 on 11/30 we have issued you a refund in paypal. Laurie will announce when the new program is ready. Thanks.


Our site has been up and down.  If you have questions or want to place an order you can call us.

It’s our 2022 12 Days of Christmas Workshop

 I say it every time but this year’s event is going to be our best one yet!!!! Each year we try to improve on our efforts and we are pleased to do it again. It is the perfect way to END your holiday season this year.

 It's Laurie’s 2022 - 12 Days of Christmas


 This year things still are not quite normal and that also includes our 12 Days.  So we will be shipping this year’s packages in early October. This will be how the program works this year.  You are familiar with countdown activities where you open a "gift" each day of the countdown. Our countdown works in a similar manner. Starting in the first or second week of October, large priority envelopes will start being mailed with 12 sealed envelopes inside. Each envelope contains a pattern, instructions, color photo AND THE SURFACE. There are also full online videos for each project in our designated classroom.

All the projects are NEW and have never been published. There are 12 ornaments - ALL NEW EXCLUSIVE PATTERNS

There will be also be EXCLUSIVE STENCILS included in the kit. 

This year again because of possible shipping delays, whenever your kit arrives you can begin to do classes.  You can open the day's envelopes and watch the videos.  Your surface and stencils will be there in your envelope. All you need to do is add paint.  We have a designated classroom for this group of videos.

NOTE: You will be able to work at your own pace 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 all at once!!!

It is easy to participate:

1.    Register online or give us a call to register.  The registration fee is just $89 which includes US priority shipping. The retail value if items were purchased separately is $259. Canadian registration is $109 due to higher priority shipping costs.  Early registrations qualify for a bonus 13th project, surface and video.

2.    Starting the middle to late November, 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 open your envelopes in numerical order. Once the videos are up, they will remain available for at least one year.  You have unlimited access.

 Remember you even get the surfaces and the stencils!
