EXPLOSIVE EVENTS! Special Guest Artist & Grand Opening!

Honestly you guys, things are happening at The Pickle that you do NOT want to miss!  Wonder what we're concocting over here?  

Special Guest Artist - Nathalie Metivier from Magenta Style!
Well last week I mentioned that we have a special guest artist coming in from Magenta Style.  Magenta Style is a Confidently Canadian rubber stamp company who has been in business since the early 90's.  We have been carrying Magenta rubber stamps in our store since day one.  Their designs are versatile and offer a very wide range of imagery suitable for any occasion and the quality of their product is second to none!

Nathalie made a special appearance a couple of years ago when I was going through some changes at the store.  It was also during that same time that Jen was just starting Homebaked Kitchen.  Many beautiful things have developed and happened since then.....I am BACK in our dream space.  Nathalie has grown and developed as an artist and Jen now has a storefront and has developed the confidence and skills to wow you.  Trust me when I say Nathalie's MAGENTA classes will be magical this year!

Here are the details!  Click on the photos to see these cards in detail.  Cards will also be in the store in the next couple of weeks for your viewing pleasure!

Additional Details
I should mention that seating is limited for these two class and they will fill up.  You can call to register or stop by the store during store hours.  Please NO EMAILS or facebook messages. You will be required to pay for your class by no later than October 11.  If you cannot make the class for some reason after paying, it will be your responsibility to find a replacement.  I'm sorry but absolutely no refunds will be given.

So what do you think?  I know I am SO pumped!
