Event Calendar Workshop this Saturday 9/24!!

I do still have a few spots left for my Event Calendar Workshop that is coming up this Saturday, September 24th (4pm to 10pm)!! It's not too late to contact me to reserve your spot now!!
I am SO VERY EXCITED to show you the NEW EVENT CALENDAR WORKSHOP I've designed for you all to create with me in September and October!! My Event Calendar Workshop price is:
Create ONE calendar with me for $22
or Create TWO calendars with me for $40!
This price includes all of the papers you will need (pre-cut and ready to stamp and assemble), the 4"x18" spiral-bound calendar (Z126, shown on page 129, $8.50), and all of the embellishments needed (Z1393 Black mini-medley accents collection $4.95), PLUS you get free use of my stamps, inks, and other tools I will teach you how to use (my expert instruction is free when you purchase from me)!! Now, if you're wondering what exactly an "event calendar" is and what makes it so useful...I will tell you! An event calendar is a place you can write down all of the birthdays and anniversaries you celebrate each and every year. You can hang it on your wall in your home or office to help remind you of important dates you want to remember and you can re-use it again and again year after year!! Why not create one for yourself and create another one to give as a gift?!! Or, if you want to invite a friend to attend and enjoy this fun workshop with you, I am happy to give you the 2 for $40 price deal (meaning your cost will be just $20 each for both of you)! To start, I am offering you THREE DATES to choose from (you can attend any one or all of these dates, come at any time that works best for you) on Saturday, September 24th (4pm to 10pm), Friday, October 7th (6pm to 10pm), and/or Friday, October 21st (6pm to 10pm). Experienced stampers can expect to complete one calendar in about 3 hours. If you are new to stamping and paper-crafting or you just want to take your time, it could take you up to about 6 hours at the most. I will continue to offer additional time in my stamp room to complete this workshop on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays in November also, if you need more time to create additional event calendars or if the earlier dates just don't work out for you.

This is wonderful. I might just have to lift this and give it a try. I have yet to make a calendar yet and you have inspired me to give it a try.
