Christmas in July
In the midst of the summer heat, I find that nothing is more welcome than a bit of wintry, Christmasy cheer. JennJill Designs wants to help with that by providing a Christmas in July 10% OFF EVERYTHING Sale. Place early orders for Christmas gifts (Christmas ornaments or iPad Covers are always good choices), or just purchase a special item for yourself to enjoy right away. Either way, you’ll bring a bit of Christmas magic to your hot July days.
To take advantage of the Christmas in July Sale, simply make your selections from the JennJill Designs Shop, and enter the coupon code “10PEROFF” during checkout. Don’t wait too long – the sale will end at 6:00 pm on Sunday, July 31.
JennJill Designs Now Offering Bead Classes
About a month ago, I was hired by the Michaels store on Colerain Ave. in Cincinnati as their new bead instructor. After several weeks of certification training and preparation, my bead classes have officially begun! The first class took place last Tuesday evening, and additional classes are scheduled every Tuesday evening in July and August.
Class projects cover all the basics of beading and jewelry making. Each class discusses a different technique, ranging from bead stringing and crimping to metal stamping and wire crochet. The class topics are varied enough that everyone, from beginner to advanced, will learn something new and be inspired by fun ideas.
Have a great July, and I’ll be back with more crafting and design news next month!
