Hey, Mattians, who would like to join? I would like to hold my membership for April and pay for 3 months starting whenever the studio opens again. Rachel Jorrie Farber, can you make that happen? (I'm not FB friends with Samamantha.)
I am in love with both the Plano and Dallas locations. The teachers are great!! I am so glad I found this studio!!
Amazing staff and experienced instructors with great atmosphere and convenient location.
Last chance to save $100 off your registration! Come to the open house on Wednesday, August 1 at 7pm.
Thanks Chrissy for the awesome class this afternoon. Just what I
needed!!💖
As requested: Jackie's Pumpkin Spice Cashew Butter recipe 1 cup cashews
½ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
12 pitted dates
⅓ to ½ cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground clove
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup

In a food processor grind the nuts, seeds and dates until uniform gritty, sticky texture. Add the pumpkin puree and spices, salt and vanilla. Process until the mixture becomes smoother. Add maple syrup one tablespoon at a time and continue processing. Taste between each addition and stop when sweeten to your taste. Process until the consistency is as smooth or as crunchy as you like. I keep mine in the frig for freshness. Makes about 16 ounces.

Join us this Saturday, June 19, from 2-4:30pm for this fun and creative workshop with recycle artist Sharon Zigrossi.

At the painting party, you'll select a hub cap/wheel cover that has been 'rescued' from the side of the road and degreased/cleaned, and primed, making it ready for you to paint.

Sharon will provide an overview and show some techniques to help get your creativity started. Each hub cap already has a design pattern so all you have to do is pick your color and let your imagination go!

All art materials will be provided including lots of bling, buttons, beads, bottlecaps, etc. if you should want to embellish your creation. When you are finished a protective acrylic glossy spray can be added.

You'll leave the party with a painted hub cap that is perfect to hang in your garden or indoors for a unique wall hanging.

$75/person includes all materials and an afternoon of fun!

This party will take place outdoors weather permitting. If needed, we'll move the party indoors.
