Girls Day In....

On Saturday Create On Ormond held its inaugural "Girls Day In" fundraiser for women's cancers and it was a great success thanks to the many kind and compassionate customers we have. The day was centered around the "copic marker" and what it can do for you! Kristina Flynn our copic certified instructor gave our students a really good taste for the capabilities of the markers. They used the blender refill in an aqua brush on 1 design, a compressor on another and heat embossing and refills on the the end of the class the students got to relax with a beautifully catered 'High Tea" served up with asparagus rolls, butterfly sandwiches, cupcakes, mini cakes and more thanks to Helen Forrest and her creative culinary flair...and then to top it off the door prize consisting of 12 copic markers (valued at $78.00) was drawn and went to Ms Peta Ferrier who had made the trip from Warrnambool to be here!!

In conjunction with the day Create On Ormond has been running a raffle and a coin jar for customers loose change to help raise money for our $250.00 goal to give to the charity. Our 3 major raffle prizes came from some of the local East Geelong traders namely Grandmas Bottom Drawer, Reef & River, The Last Piece, Gallery of Enlightenment, Remedial Massage and donations from our wonderful customers namely Kerry Taylor. I know a lot of you will be wanting to know the result of the raffle that was drawn by Kristina in front of the class today and the winners are!

1. Debbie Johnston

2. Jacqui Cordedda

3. Mary Mitchell

Congratulations to all the winners today we hope you enjoy your prizes and support the local traders for their terrific generosity......

Many thanks girls for an enjoyable day and most importantly we superceded our goal and raised $337.30.....great job everyone.

What is Technique Tuesday?

Technique Tuesday's are designed to help you learn how to use some of the papercraft products that are in the market place today. You may have seen them demonstrated at one on the craft shows even bought the product and now you just cant remember what to do with it! We can help.

They take 1 hour and cost $10.00 all products included....
