Tip of the Month
Two for the Price of One
Most Scissor and Eye Glass Case Canvases are two sided.  Instead of making ONE two-sided piece make TWO one-sided items.  Get two gifts for the price of one.

Finished Project of the Month
DIY Witch Hat Contest

With the popularity of the egg and flag contests done earlier this year, we are holding a witch hat ornament contest.  Stop in HON and pick up your hat outline canvas on 13 or 18 mesh and let your creative juices flow.  Pictured below are two examples for inspiration. All canvases must be returned to HON the first week of October (or sooner) in order to be finished for Halloween.  The voting will begin the last week of October and the winner will be announced on Halloween.  As before, the winner receives free finishing and all other participants get 20% off 
their ornament finishing.
