We have been having so much fun this summer with our adult craft program DIY!  In June, we learned how to decorate cakes.  In July, we learned to knit.  And now, this coming Wednesday at 2 PM, we will be learning the art of decoupage.  We'll be taking plain boring boxes and other shapes and covering them with beautiful cutouts to make nice little knickknacks and places to store little keepsakes.  Don't worry, all the materials will be provided.  All you need to do is click here to register beforehand.  We'll see you then!
