What winter blues? Embrace the cozy winter season with this light-filled workshop.

Linda of Lulumière, a familiar and friendly face around here, will guide as you pour your own candle with a custom fragrance blend using 100% essential oils. You'll be pleased to know that they are nontoxic, renewable, and environmentally friendly (unlike many of the candles you see in stores).

MAKE & GIVE WREATHS

Our most anticipated workshop of the year is here!

The marvelous Cozbi Jean Hultz will be returning again this year to guide us in creating and styling two different styles of artisan wreaths. We encourage our guests to give the second wreath to a friend, family, or the host/hostess at a holiday gathering to spread the love. But we wouldn't blame you if you want to keep both for yourself. ; )

As you know, we like to keep sustainability in mind, so a bonus is that with your newfound skill, you’ll be able to reuse the bases to make new wreaths year after year.

When:
Saturday, December 7
11:00am - 2:00pm

Join us for the most wonderful time.

CANDLE MAKING

This day may be full of tricks and treats for some of you, but here's a chance to treat yourself to something good for your overall health vs. causing cavities. ;)

Autumn ushers in the season of coziness and we have just the thing. Linda Takano of Lulumière, a favorite and regular instructor with us, will guide as you pour your own candle with a custom fragrance blend using 100% essential oils. They are renewable and environmentally friendly. Also great to learn for making holiday gifts that are sure to bring warm fuzzies.

When:
Saturday, November 16
1:00pm - 2:30pm

Make it a date or share this experience with your friends.

There’s so much around self-care these days, but did you know that self-care is not just about rest, exercise, and bubble baths?

Creating art also decreases negative emotions, reduces stress and anxiety, and betters overall health. Being in community also does all those things and more. Do something good for yourself and join us for calligraphy with the talented Crystal of The Fancy Cat Studio and connect with others in real life!

Hello friends,

We are excited to start this year's Collectives, but must temporarily pause to give some of our team members time to attend to urgent family matters.

It’s especially in times like these that the meaning of carpe diem and what our company stands for is ever so poignant, and we hope you will continue to experience life to the fullest with your loved ones.

We'll let you know once we're ready to announce the next Collective and can't wait to start seizing the day with you again.

Thanks and carpe diem,

Grace, Hun, Matt, Tim, and Veda

In lieu of a Collective this month, our team decided to go out and do something meaningful together. So we volunteered at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission/Hope Place where we cleaned, prepped, and served lunch for homeless women and children. We enjoyed meeting some wonderful people, we bonded over hairnets and french fries, and our hearts were expanded. What an honor to serve! #carpediem #carpediemcollective
