Pop Up Workshop Sneak Peak

I will be teaching a holiday themed pop up card workshop tomorrow at Paper Crane Gallery here in Bloomington with my close friend and colleague, Hyun. We are offering two one and a half hour sessions (10:30 and 1:00) when the participants will make four different kinds of holiday cards. We will also have card kits available for sale. If you haven't had a chance to check out Paper Crane, it is a great time to do so. It will be a ton of fun and a perfect way to ease into the holiday season!
