Let's Swap! 

TPBP will host an ongoing  Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap for our in-store shoppers.  ATCs are a fun way to share your art with other artists while also creating a collection of works from other artists.  
Here's how the on-going swap will work:
  1.  When you visit the store, let me know that you'd like to swap ATCs and we will, it's that simple!
  2. We will limit the swap to once a month per person
If you are wondering what the heck an ATC is, follow this link for a definition, instructions and a video.  

Dear Friends,

Even though our new class and crop space is not quite complete, we did take it for a test ride on Wednesday during Veronica Leggett's class.  It worked out very well and makes me even more excited to see the end result and share it with all of you.

New Crop Date
Our next crop is schedule for Friday, October 4, 10am - 5pm, $5 and 5pm - 12am, $5.  We have a great time at our crops and I sure hope you will be able to join and try out our new and improved crop space.

New Local Design Team
Many of you have told me how much you love the inspiration provided by our design team and their projects each week.  To expand on that inspiration, I'll be establishing a local design team which will allow me to have the inspirational projects in the store for you to see and touch.  I've already recruited a few designers and can't wait to work with them.  I may need to recruit a few more designers.  If you are interested in joining TPBP local design team I sure hope you will throw your hat into the ring for consideration.  In the coming weeks we will publish the design team requirements and application process for your consideration.

 Gina's September project proves that inspiration can come from many places, even a rolling pin! This "recipe for a happy life" is a lovely gift and and a very creative project.
