Jazzy Crafts New Web Site

Hi Everyone!

I just thought I'd let you know that Jazzy Crafts now has a new web site up and running.  It's the same address, but a different experience.  Of course, if you got to this BLOG via that site, then you've already seen the new version.  If not, you can click on our logo on the right or www.JazzyCrafts.com to go directly there.

One of my favorite features of the site is our new interactive calendar.  The calendar will allow you to quickly see what classes are coming up, but also get details about the classes that were not available on-line before.  The calendar is also constantly updated as we make changes, so you'll always know the latest.  If you're looking for a time to do "open crafts" or book a party, you can quickly see if the time is available.

We've also got a craft gallery going that is better than the old one and will become even better as time goes on.  We'll try to keep you up to speed on new products via the site, as well as through this BLOG and our mailing list, so you'll have plenty of ways to keep up with what's going on in the store.

Needless to say, this has been a fun experience...except when I lost my first two sites... and I've learned a lot about web development...and the importance of backups!   As I learn more, we'll be adding functionality to the site as well.  We hope to be able to bring on-line class and party sign-up features in the near future, but who knows what else we might do.

Keep smiling and keep on crafting!

Scott (aka Mr. Jazzy da Web Master)

Loves Me, Loves Me Not

Friday night was our Loves Me, Loves Me Not mini album class with "Rep to the Stars" Cory Phillips! What a blast we had! Everyone was begging Cory to do another class soon. We used Basic Grey's Bittersweet paper line with their Eclectic mini album and even got to use Glimmer Mist which is brand new to Jazzy Crafts to make this adorable book. Look for more mini album classes soon!

Malice in Miniature at Jazzy Crafts

We were honored Sunday to have the talented Margaret Grace(on the left), author of Malice in Miniature, and better known as Camille Minichino, in our store. Camille is a long time Castro Valley resident who has just released the third book in her Miniature Mystery Series. She signed autographs for us and we made these darling miniature vases with FlowerSoft, a great new product we have from England.
