Makerspace Monday: Recap and What’s Next

Makerspace Monday @ The PlaygroundOn October 11th we were joined by guest Christine and Shell from “Artful Connections” who taught us how to relax, find our inner peace, and of course, zest for life. Say what? This sounds like fun! We cranked up the music and began mixing together potions of Essential-Oil Blends. The night felt like being on a retreat at a tropical resort with all the smells that filled the air. Each guest made their very own personalized scent of mixes. In addition to the essential oil blend roller each guest was given, jewelry was designed with actual lava beads. As the evening drew to an end, we added our final touches of paint from last month’s Pottery Workshop!

Next month on November 8th we will be creating the “7-Days of Gratitude Wreath” and mixing together homemade Pumpkin Spice Bites. This month’s Makerspace will be a month full of gratitude and thankfulness with a dusting of dessert to tantalize your sweet tooth!
