we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and made the most of our wild arctic blast.

we were forced to cancel workshops and even close down completely for a few days.
we are back and bustling to reschedule workshops, reconfigure sale events and the like.
(please keep checking the blog for updates).
the January schedule will be up within the week and we are re-offering our gift card special this coming Monday and Tuesday.
also, get ready for a HUGE sale!! affectionately titled"THE ARCTIC BLAST RECOVERY SALE!!" this sale will run next Saturday (Jan. 3rd) sure to mark your calendars!! you won't want to miss the savings and fun we have planned! (and we need all the help we can get in recovering from a very lackluster holiday sales week!....pray for no more SNOW please!!)
be well, be safe, be warm!
