Mesmerizing Mandalas Stones

 Mandala stones are all over Etsy and Pinterest, and it’s easy to see why.  Their colorful, symmetrical, dotted patterns are real eye-catchers, and can be recreated with little more than a smooth stone, paint and a brush.  No special skills are required – just a few simple tips and tricks – and you’ll get the hang of it in no time.  So join us as we get ‘dotty’ for this fun craft!  Class is open to adults and children 10 years of age or older.  A $10 supply fee is due to the instructor at class.

Webinar - Twitter (for professional networking & customer relations)

Businesses and organizations can no longer afford to ignore the power of Twitter. This social giant has proven it’s a critical part of any marketing mix.

It has also become the optimal network for thought leadership growth and development of branding and marketing. This is a fast-paced social network and this class will get you moving as fast as you can tweet! First, we will help you develop a Twitter handle - your username that will be recognized by those you follow and all those who follow you. Then you’ll develop a bio that includes your photo or logo. Finally, we will help you develop a plan to build your presence, or what Twitter calls ‘your following’, which is the key driver of success on this social network.
