“Yea! so what” you say?
REALLY? You don’t know what that means?
Ok, let me explain. Two sisters, Josie Celio & Sally Griswold, had been in the creative arts business for a while, creating designs for scrap-booking, stamping and all other kinds of art projects. A couple years ago, they launched a line for home decor, Iron Orchid Designs “IOD”. I don’t know all the details and may have something a little off… but that’s the jist of it. They created products to use on walls, furniture, signs and just about anything else you have a vision for. They were selling through a wholesale company until the end of last year when they decided to go out on their own. I have been carrying many of their products in the store for over a year now. These products are awesome for adding a little something extra to your projects. Breathing new life into the furniture painting craze! The new designs will be shipping in June & July and I expect to have most of them in stock when they do.
To introduce you to these awesome tools of the trade, I will be hosting “IOD Wednesday” workshops once a month. In these workshops you will be creating one of a kind projects using the IOD stamps, Moulds and Transfers you choose from my personal supply. These workshops will be held in an open time format where you come when it works for you and work at you own pace. Our studio will be open from 1:00 – 6:00 and the projects will range in price from $25 – $40. You will have access to my DIY and APC paints & finishes as well as selected IOD Stamps, Moulds & Transfers. I will be there to assist and direct you. Most projects can be completed in 1 1/2 – 2 hours. At this time, you do not need to register, but that might change. You can call or text me and let me know if you are planning on coming.
This will be a great opportunity for you to get creative and try out the IOD products. The IOD products empower you to create unique pieces of art, furniture, gifts, home decor and so much more. There are groups on Facebook where others share their work and ideas to get you going! It really is fun and adicting.
I hope you will join me, starting Wednesday, June 13 to create something beautiful with IOD!
Here are some of the different projects I have created using IOD stamps, moulds and transfers.
