The Muse Craft Open House...A Success!

The Teachers...Me, Liz Matheney & Chrissy Gemmill
What a fun event! We had a great turnout and everyone really enjoyed creating all the crafts, sipping wine and snacking on delicious cheeses and cookies. And the best news, we raised nearly $300 for Lily's Hope!

Margaret Hluch & Whitney with the Lily's Hope display.
Margaret was kind enough to let us use her amazing studio space. Margaret is a fiber artist and her husband Kevin is a ceramic artist. You can take a peek at their wonderful work by visiting their website Hluch Arts.

The Christmas tags went over very well. Love how everyone puts their own unique touch to a craft. Someone got creative and combined the stamped ornament and the tag:

Liz had everyone in a festive mood creating Pom Poms.
Liz crochets and sells her work through The Muse. If you look at Whitney's button cowl that she is wearing, you can see a sample of Liz's work. 

You already had a chance to see some of Chrissy Gemmill's work on my December Artist of the Month post. Chrissy also sells her work at The Muse and at her Etsy shop.

Hope you are surviving the hectic holiday preparation time. Try to find a minute to relax and just enjoy the season.
