I love having the luxury of offering a personal crop for up to 12 people in an intimate setting, natural light and main floor entry (no stairs and we have a wide double door).  Attendees have told me they really enjoy how much they accomplish when they come!  It’s very peaceful and bright and they get A LOT done because there are no distractions. Attendees also enjoy the personal assistance I offer and classes where they can learn something new!  It’s been a great escape in a country like setting.  Enjoying meals on the deck is just an added bonus too!

What is BYO Crops?  It’s truly a treat and I’m looking to share it with you!  

  • BYO CROPS:  you can “bring your own” or “buy your own” meals (keeping the event affordable).
  • Lunch: is included on Saturday, Sunday is only $5 more.   
  • Refreshments:  I have a Keurig machine, bottled water and coke and pepsi.
  • Food nearby:  The Fox Run Mall and a variety of fast food/restaurants on Woodbury Avenue are only 5 minutes away.  (TX Roadhouse, Appleby’s, TGIF’s, Olive Garden, Panera …. +++ more)
  • Hotels:  Many low cost hotels are within 5 mins. driving distance and just off the highway (I love using Priceline for the best price in hotel stays).

I look forward to sharing My Creative Studio with you!  I’m located @ 64 Gundalow Landing, Newington (Portsmouth) NH.  You feel like you are in the country, but 15 mins. from Maine and about 20 mins. from MA.

Our first Kit of the Month is so pretty, Sugar Rush.  I’ve created my own artwork (to be posted soon), but here’s a peek of the papers and ideas for this kit from CTMH:

The January Stamp of the Month is so pretty and I love the writing of “Adore You.”  You can easily stamp “Adore” alone or “You” alone.

Color in the few flowers and look at what you can do.  Thanks for sharing your creativity Tamytha …. these are stunning!

Every January, we celebrate National Papercrafting Month as a way of acknowledging the pure joy of playing with paper! We scrapbook with it, we make cards with it, we decorate with it—in short, we craft with it!

This year, we’re celebrating the joys of paper-crafted home décor with the beautiful Welcome Home wreath kit. The kit includes die-cut paper pieces and gold foil accents, including enough alphabet stickers to allow you to choose your own message. You can simply pop out the pieces and attach them to the sturdy chipboard wreath base, making a welcoming décor piece for your home.

There are four ways you can get the wreath kit:

  1. Buy it for $18.95—no qualifying purchase required!
  2. Get it for free with a qualifying $60 purchase!*
  3. Get it for free by hosting a party that reaches the second level of Hostess Rewards.
  4. Get it for free when you sign up to be a Consultant!  See kit details below

*$60 qualifying purchase must be full-priced retail product not including tax and shipping. Offer valid January 1 – January 31, 2017 while supplies last. Normal shipping/handling & tax apply.

No matter how you get your Welcome Home wreath kit—or how many you get—you are going to love how easy this kit makes it to add a little more papercrafted beauty to your life.

New Consultant Kit is HERE!

As part of your enrollment, you will purchase our New Consultant Kit for only $75 and receive the WREATH kit for FREE! Each kit includes the basic business supplies you’ll need to start your business and is valued at over $200!
