We're Getting Nostalgic

March is always a special month at Gingersnap Creations. It's our birthday! 3 years ago we started on this fun journey! Now, as we come to the end of it, we are looking back and celebrating our fabulous community by making Family our theme in March which is International Women's Month and National Craft Month. We'll be focusing on heritage and antiquing techniques all month as look to the past with fondness.


This month, we are pleased to have Retro Cafe Art Gallery as our generous March sponsor. Retro Cafe Art Gallery is an oasis for the altered artist. They carry altered art supplies, collage sheets and images, vintage finds, handcrafted jewelry, and original art. Find out more at their fabulous website - www.RetroCafeArt.com.


We are excited to have Laura Carson with us throughout this month as our March Muse. She is a fabulous collage, altered arts and mixed media arts. We are sure that you will fall in love with her beautiful vintage style and wonderfully imaginative designs. To find out more about Laura, come back on Saturday when we showcase her wonderful art. If you can't wait, check out Laura's blog, Artfully Musing.
