Announcing our 2018 Santa’s Summer 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 get a jump start on your 2018 holiday painting season. It is our way of offering something very special and unique for you.  We are pleased to be able to offer another exclusive great event.  We keep the projects secret until we reveal some of the bonuses.  Many people enjoy the suspense and other people tear into all their packages when they arrive and peek.  Either way you win!!!!!

 It's Laurie’s 2018 Santa’s Summer Workshop

 You are familiar with countdown activities where you open a "gift" each day of the countdown. Our countdown works in a similar manner. Starting July 10th 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 online videos for each project. All the projects are NEW and have never been published. There are 12 ornaments being featured this summer. This year we will be also be including EXCLUSIVE STENCILS and a great stamp that you are going to need to complete the projects.

Each day starting July 17th and ending July 28th a new project will be presented online. You can open the day's envelope at home, open your pattern and watch the video if you wish.  Your surface and stencils will be there. You even have a stamp for your projects.

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!!!!

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 $125. Canadian registration is $93 due to higher priority shipping costs.  Early registrations qualify for a bonus 13th project, surface and video.*

2.     Starting July 10th 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 summer event! Packages will ship in the order they are received, so order early and get your materials first.  Early orders also get a bonus project and surface.

So it's 12 projects...12 surfaces... 12 patterns...12 videos…Stamp and EXCLUSIVE stencils…

These are all NEW EXCLUSIVE designs...


Our first goal is to register by June 19th and get that bonus 13th pattern, video and surface FREE. 

Our second goal is to get more participants than we had last summer and I will provide a 14th downloadable pattern and video for you to enjoy online. You supply your own surface.  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.

Orders will be filled in the order they are received so enroll early. 

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

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