Happy Monday! Up till recently, the Oh Joy! Academy has largely been geared towards business owners and entrepreneurs, so today, I'm super excited today to share that we've added two CRAFTING workshops to the academy!

Julia and Jess from our Creative Content team are hosting two workshops (Make it Dazzle and Wrap Stars) in Los Angeles to teach you how to make some of our most popular DIYs of all time. Both workshops will be at the studio and make for a really fun craft night out with friends or solo! Here's everything you need to know...

Make it Dazzle! Who remembers when we took pearl beads and turned plain cardigans into amazing embellished works of art?! Or the time we took large sequins and bedazzled a tule skirt?! Both projects show you how to give new life to a piece of clothing you already own, and in this workshop, Julia and Jess will show you how to do just that. Just bring a piece of clothing that you'd like to embellish, and they'll show you how to add your own sequins or pearl beads to make it totally amazing and one-of-a-kind. 

This class will be held in Los Angeles at the Oh Joy! Studio on Sunday, November 3rd from 7-9PM. Save your seat here! (There are only a couple spots left!). These workshops are a fun way to grab your friends and have a ladies night of crafting and fun! Hope to see some of you then!

This might be the coolest felt puzzle I've seen! And, guess what?! They were just bird houses before we turned them around! With a little bit of felt and velcro, they've been transformed into something super colorful and fun for your kids to play with over and over again. They remind me of a cross between paper dolls and felt boards, and I love it. Here's how to make your very own...

If you're ever looking for me at a party and there's a charcuterie board around, I guarantee I won't be too far away from it. It's one of my favorite snacks ever (I'd eat one for every meal if I could), and I love making them for my guests when I host. It's so easy and looks so fancy. It's fun to switch them up with seasonal fruits and snacks, so here's a beautiful autumnal charcuterie board for all your fall gatherings...big or small!
