Scratching your head over what you and your beloved can do to celebrate the holiday? Consider buying a spot for each of you in a class you can take together! Write a sweet note in a card revealing the skill you'll be learning together, and POW! You've got a handmade Valentine's Day done right!
"This Thursday evening, we have Fern Richardson from Life On the Balcony teaching a blogging class. For $25, you can learn about basic set-up, scheduling and what it takes to make a successful blog. Her blog is now a book coming out later this year!"
Handmade Galleries LA hosts its popular Intro to Art Clay Jewelry class on Feb. 26--don't miss it. Led by Linda Thibodeaux of Solstice LTD, participants will create a textured pendant and a pair of textured earrings and turn a natural leaf into a fine silver pendant. If you're looking for a fun present for your lady friend, you pretty much can't go wrong with a jewelry-making class.
