Believe Me... Welcome!

Updated 11/21/15

2015 has been a very busy year full of great events.

Announcing our 2015 HOLIDAY EVENT!!!

 This year’s event is going to be our best one yet. It is the perfect way to wrap up the 2015 painting season. It is our way of saying thank you to our followers and to offer something very unique and special.

 It's Laurie’s 2015 Twelve Days of Christmas

 You are familiar with countdown activities where you open a "gift" each day of the countdown. Our countdown works in a similar manner. Starting December 8th large priority envelopes will be mailed with 12 sealed envelopes inside. Each envelope contains a pattern, instructions, color photo AND THE SURFACE OR KIT. There are even videos for each project. All the projects are NEW and have never been published. They are all holiday ornaments this year and we have included some additional extras to help make it even easier to create the projects.  This year we are even including EXCLUSIVE STENCILS and the tissue wrap that you are going to need to do the projects.

Each day starting December 12th and ending December 23rd. You can open the day's envelope.

NOTE: If your schedule does not allow you to work on this now, no problem.  You will be able to work at your own pace in the future and the videos will be there for you for up to one year. That gives you plenty of time to paint. If you are not into videos, you don't have to worry; you are getting all the printed materials, photos and surfaces for each project in the envelope. No downloading or printing needed. So if you are too busy now, don't worry you can start when your schedule permits. If you are an overachiever there is nothing I can do from stopping you from ripping into the envelopes ahead of time!!!!

It is easy to participate:

  1. Register online or give us a call to register.  The registration fee is just $75 which includes US priority shipping. The retail value is $125. Canadian registration is $90 due to higher priority shipping costs.  Early registrations qualify for a bonus 13th project, surface and video.*
  2. Starting December 8th priority envelopes will be mailed to participants with the goodies. You will be given written instructions, addresses and codes for getting additional online materials in your packets.
  3. To participate during the "live" event, open your envelopes in numerical order. One per day. If you are not participating each day, you can join in anytime during or after the live event. You will be able to open any of the days in any order after the entire live event is done. Online materials will go up in order, each morning at 8 am CST. Once they are up, they will remain available for at least one year.  You have unlimited access.

So join us for this holiday event that will be unprecedented! Packages will ship in the order they are received, so order early and get your materials first.

 Remember you even get the surfaces and this year for the first time - stencils!

12 projects...12 surfaces... 12 patterns...12 videos…EXCLUSIVE stencils…tissue wrap

There is new lessons to learn and techniques to try.  All new designs...

You WANT MORE…To make this a true success, I want to beat records. As most of you know I am extremely competitive. I need your help by letting all your painting friends know about our event and encourage them to join you by ordering their kit too. 

This year we are giving bonus items for meeting goals. 

Our first goal is to register by November 30th and you get a bonus 13th project and surface FREE. 

Our second goal is to get 50 more participants than we had last year and I will provide a 14th downloadable pattern and video for you to enjoy online.  So share my posts and notify your friends, painting groups and post on your Facebook pages.  Let people know how much you have enjoyed past countdowns and share past projects.  Let's get the word out and I will reward you all for it.

If we meet those goals, we will look at adding another reward.  So it is important to participate and spread the word.  Orders will be filled in the order they are received so enroll early. 

Check back to see our progress and how quickly we meet our goals.

Hope you join us, it is going to be fun...
