I hope you have enjoyed the mild weather so far! I know that all this mild weather had me a bit fooled that Christmas really was still a while away but I am here to tell you it's not!
December 2 Meet the Maker event, Hot Chocolate Bar and Mulled Cider!
We want to help you with all your Christmas shopping needs, and this Friday December 2nd, we will be open late, until 9 pm, and have some of our talented makers on hand to help you out! Come and meet them, ask them questions and see their amazing products!
We will also have mulled cider, a hot chocolate bar, and snacks for your enjoyment. Come and make and take a craft if you like too.
Take a look at our events page here to see what all the fuss is about, and be sure to invite your friends and share on your pages!

New Food Items
Did you know we have some delicious food items in the studio boutique? Back again is candy sushi by Sweet C Bakery, we have the fabulous John Russell Honey in a variety of flavors and honey sticks! Decadence Chocolates has also joined us with a selection of delicious treats and chocolate bars, and we also now have Gourmet Inspirations with a selection of their sauces, including my personal favorite, the Salted Caramel Whiskey Sauce. All of these great items make wonderful Christmas gifts, teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, or just a treat for yourself for all the hard work you do!

I also want to just say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported A Pinch of Creativity, and our local artisans by purchasing our products. No matter how small, every purchase helps. Thank you to everyone who has attended a workshop with me, as I try to live my dream of bringing more creativity, peace of mind by creating a warm and inviting environment where we can put all our fears, anxieties, depression and world troubles on the table and let it all drift away as we become creative together! It really is all I want to do, bringing us together in a busy life to connect and create!
