Creative Thursdays: Upcoming TranquiliT Creative Events

The holidays are fast approaching but it's not too late to start working on DIY projects for Christmas gifts! Avoid the frantic panic by starting your planning now.

Here's some *relatively* easy projects that might interest your fancy (think of projects that can be made in bulk):
-soap making
-bath salts
-handmade books (journals or narratives)
-hand-stamped stationary or cards
-candle making
-beading (easy tutorials for mala beading can be found in these previous posts: 1, 2, 3)
-knitting and/or crocheting
We encourage you to check out your local craft communities for classes and workshops.

If you are local, TranquiliT has a great line up of classes designed to get you DIY-ing for some great holiday gifts this year:
Holiday Knitting Project: Beanie, Dec 6, 9:30-12:30pm
Crochet Jewelry, Dec 8, 6-8pm
Revamp your Old Jewelry (Earrings), Dec 10, 7-9pm

Lastly, check out the great necklace above made by Kim, who joined me for the Revamp you old jewelry (necklace) workshop last night. The piece above was made from 3 separate necklaces Kim had on hand that were broken. Yay, Kim! Thanks for letting us share your work.

If you have a DIY project that you made and would like to share, please pass them along to me at
