Autumn is my most favorite time of year! The smells of the crisp aspens just as they turn, fresh apple pie and homemade cranberry sauce, the crimson-lined streets as the trees show their best shade, grateful blessings, friends and family. It doesn't get any better! I wanted to share with you some beautiful artwork today, created by Karen Pedersen, where noted. She has designed some amazing classes, which I am offering in November, and she has graciously allowed me to share her art with you.

3. Play Dates
Christmas Advent Calendar Workshop
|Artwork by Karen Pedersen|
- Come to an in-person class (see dates and times below)
- Participate long-distance
- Host this workshop in your home with you and at least 5 friends and I'll come to you (in Utah).You, as hostess, will earn at least $40 in hostess rewards and at least one half-off item (and that's only if everyone only purchases the Basic Kit. The more you sell, the more you earn)!
The finished project is 14" x 14" x 2 3/4" and each daily drawer is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square. It's a darling Christmas decoration and very functional. One of the things I love most about it is that the little drawers are so roomy you can easily fit enough treats in each one for each child or grandchild that will want to pull out the drawer each day in December. (Most advent calendars are only for one treat or prize.) My friend, Karen, had the great idea of filling each drawer with Hershey's Kisses and a scripture reference.
In person classes at my South Jordan Home (if you want to attend one of these classes, I need to hear from you no later than Monday, November 19):
- Monday morning, November 26 from 10 am - 1 pm
- Saturday morning, Novemberer 24 from 10 am - 1 pm
