Going Really Old School in September

September will be full of fun at Gingersnap Creations! We'll be going truly old school next month as we celebrate Ancient Ages! In the tradition of great ancient civilizations like Medopotamia, Greece and Rome, we will be working with tiles and mosaics for the whole month.
