There will be two Make and Take crafting classes held  11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  Take a fun break during your shopping and make one or both of these doll themed Christmas ornaments! Each ornament is just $7.50 and our Crafting Guru will have scissors and glue on hand for you to use. She’ll also be there to lead you through step by step instructions, as you make these quick, enjoyable doll sized Christmas decorations ❤

First come first served! We have a limited number of the kits on hand 🙂
