NEW FPK Specialty Workshop with Susan Tidwell

Good Morning from the Front Porch!

I am so happy to announce that recently I asked Susan Tidwell to be a Guest Designer for our newest Front Porch Kit....Happy Home! She gladly took me up on the offer and we have teamed up to offer you a unique Specialty Workshop! 

After consulting with our awesome Wood Guy (aka Miss T's Hubby) he fashioned some wood houses of all shapes and sizes, some have interchangeable roof tops too! Then they were passed on to Susan....AND look at her wonderful transformations!!

Here's what Susan has to say about her NEW Specialty Workshop: HAPPY HOUSES"Welcome to my neighborhood! Join me in my “Happy Home” mixed media workshop where we will alter plain chunky wood pieces into these cute, whimsical houses. Mix up the various elements to make yours unique or match the samples. We will be using papers and goodies from the HAPPY HOME Front Porch Kit."

"Class will include three houses, but others will be available if you want to purchase the whole set. Sign up now for this fun class and let me help you build your own little neighborhood and learn some fun artsy techniques during the process!
All supplies will be included - just bring your basics."
