It seems there is lots to say this week!
So, Bizzy B buffs, February is already upon us. A Canadian winter is in full swing. It’s been very brrrr with some snow thrown in – all things that can cause us to hibernate. However, we have sunshine now and it’s time to emerge from house to Hive! They managed to pull out Wiarton Willy (or some other cranky groundhog) from his hole. They seemed to have predicted his crankiness at least as they had some heavy duty gloves on! Nobody seems to know when Spring will arrive – probably around March 21st if you ask me, but there seemed to be lots of confusion as to what happens if he sees his shadow or not!! All I know is that The Hive is always Spring like with our lovely sunny yellow! So come and visit for a breath of inspiration.
Whatever the weather, it’s always a good time to get creative. Take some time for yourself, come out and get a kickstart with one of our Bizzy classes or groups. Our February calendar is packed with classes, events and group meetings.
Check out this line-up:
Classes include Tile Time, Pocket Scrapbooking, Embossing Folder & Die Cut, Scrapbooking Design, & Gelli Plate Art Cards. That’s just in the next couple of weeks! Come on out and learn something new.
We also have some special events such as this Sunday’s Creative Jump Start afternoon. This is the last chance to sign up if you haven’t already. For only $10 you will get to play with some Liquitex products and we will be doing a project from CJS. We do need your order confirmation number from CJS when you sign up. It’s going to be a great way to spend a winter Sunday afternoon.
CALL NOW! 416-203-0433.

Stamp & Die of the Month
Don’t forget we also have our SOTM & DOTM demo on February 14.
Daniza always has lots of ideas for you on ways to use our monthly dies and stamps. We have a first this month! The stamp is “clear polymer”! She is soooo pretty! This demo is always followed by Stay & Play where you can bring your own projects to work on and socialize with like-minded people.
Oh wait, I perhaps should have said socialize first
SAVE THE DATE: February 21st, 2015
This is the day we have our behemothic (sounds big eh!) Bizzy B 2nd Hand Stamp & Schtuff Sale! We have almost run out of vendor kits, so lots of people are purging (in our words making room for the other items that go home with others at the sale :)) and getting ready to bring out all kinds of great deals. If you are interested in selling anything please contact us as soon as possible so we can ensure you get a kit.
If you just want to check out the bargoons make sure you get out early before it gets cleared out!
Here are some pics from previous sales:
In between we have our regular monthly group meetings for ATC’s, Art Journal, Christmas Club, etc. These are great informal gatherings for sharing ideas, swapping little pieces of art and enjoying a few hours of relaxation. We welcome all visitors if you just want to check it out to see if you would like to participate.
Check our calendar HERE for more information on all these fun events.
Nathalie Kalbach – March 13 – 15, 2015
Still on our class note, we are very excited to bring you the start of our Guest Instructor line up for Spring with Nathalie Kalbach. Have you heard about her? If you have, you will know it is going to be a fun weekend. If not, please visit her website at www.nathaliesstudio.com to find out more. Nathalie will be doing 3 amazing classes. Don’t worry if you have taken classes with Nat before; these classes are all different from before. They will include an Altered book that will incorporate some sketching lessons, followed by the demystification of all things acrylic paint (canvas involved), and lastly the staining of raw canvas. I have to say I am quite intrigued by this last class and definitely looking forward to a great weekend with Nat. You will learn sooooo much in these 3 classes, it is worth every penny.
Now, this is important, if you sign up before Sunday, February 8th you can save $5 per class, so make sure you give us a call ASAP to get in on this deal! We would really love to have
you join us for Nat’s classes.
When you check the list of products a student needs to bring, we want you to know we are here to help. See products you need? No time to get out to get them? For your convenience, we can gather a kit for you and keep it in the store ready for your arrival. Just let us know your needs and we will do our best to save your time!
Still with me????? Keep reading! Need a refill?
Well, it’s that time of the year when new products are starting to arrive from the CHA trade show!
We just received the new Distress January ink products and boy is that Cracked Pistachio a yummy colour.
Somehow I don’t think they are going to be around very long! Wonder what February’s colour is????
Other products are starting to arrive too, such as these very cute little leather albums filled with great embellishments. Imagine all those pretties on your shelf!
There are many other things coming in, too.
Come on in and see what else is new.
Okay, that’s it, now it’s time to put your beverage down and pick up the phone and dial 416-203-0433 and get signed up for something! Or better still, put your coat and boots on and head on down to the hive – we would love to see you all!
See ya soon!
