Last minute gifts: one of a kind and personalized

Last minute Christmas gifts

Get some inspiration for last minute Christmas gifts: it is easy to personalize your gift by just adding some specific lettering or making up a set of something you know that person prefers.

I think that last minute gifts make up a lot of Christmas fun. For people like me who do not have all their family within reach, that is the best part of Christmas. I love making gifts, creating greeting cards and giving gifts. I wish I had more money, so more people could get their gifts and feel happy about them.

Gift Certificates for Art Classes and Art

Gift certificate for art classes

Gift certificates for teen and adult art classes are really loved since everybody can enjoy them way beyond the holiday weeks. Some people who receive  art classes as a gift keep attending them and create fantastic art works for quite a few months or even years.

Please check out the schedule here: https://inesepogagallery.com/classes-workshops-schedule/

Our small groups are very friendly, and the creative atmosphere is just fantastic during these classes. We have mothers and daughters in every class: they attend together watercolor and sketching, acrylic landscape elements and acrylic large flowers. Daughters usually get so many compliments since some are just 11 or 12 years old!

I am offering private, semi-private, private kids and teens, groups art classes and art workshops, as well as one can arrange their own painting party.

Painting party info is here:  https://inesepogagallery.com/make-painting-party/

I was sorting out the images which we had used during my previous classes, and I was surprised how many pictures there were. So many classes have taken place in this studio-gallery, unbelievable! Well, there are at least 3 classes every week for the most part of the year. It is amazing how each image allows to recall the group and particular students who were creating their art based on that image.

Please let me know if you’d like to purchase a gift certificate for art classes. You can pick it up at the studio-gallery, or you can pay by e-mail transfer and get it sent to your inbox. I can send a gift certificate by regular mail, as well. Please, don’t forget to specify for which class the certificate is.

All classes will resume in the third week of January.

Just like every year, I have created nice DIY decorations. I used lots of pine and spruce cones this year, I hope they will be liked.

There’s always new art, cards and 3-dimensional artworks for sale. Art is a long-lasting gift and will remind the person who received it even after many years.

Please, visit the Fine Art America site to see most of my art:

Christmas crafts and art, check out to create your own Christmas crafts

Lots of people are stopping by, sales are actually better than I expected, and we decided to extend the sale until Christmas.

I noticed also that many visitors really liked the traditional colors: red, white, green and gold.

Since the previous traditional Christmas decorations were sold, I created new ones in similar style. This time I used some baskets and more greens.

You might like these ideas, as well. So, get to work.

All you need is some dry tree branches: painted cedar looks very well, some glitter, hot glue and glue gun, tissue paper in your favorite colors and some pine cones and/or fir cones. I am also using some base (what you use for live flowers or for dry flowers), that makes it easier to arrange all parts of Christmas decoration: basket, plate, jar in a nice way, and nothing moves away from its place.

I start with arrangement of greens, after that, I’m attaching fir cones, pine cones and tissue paper roses wherever they look fitting.

Christmas crafts: a great way to make your home look very festive and welcoming

 

Nature materials for beautiful Christmas decorations: what could be more attractive?

Smaller Christmas decorations can look as good as the larger ones

 

And paintings look great, too.
