We travel within a 60 mile radius to our clients,  and Monroe Township was 59 miles away!  I think we would’ve traveled there if it had been over 60 miles because we really wanted to try out PTNJ on the 55+ community and see if we could bring fun and relaxation to that age group!  We really believe our workshops, kits, craft tables and party entertainment are great for the mind and soul for all ages.

This trip down to south Jersey was more of a demonstration for the audience.  Thinking it would add some fun for the group, we selected various types of paper in fun, bright what we like to call "PTNJ colors", with the idea that they would try three different paper crafting techniques—stamping, embossing, and using three types of adhesives: a tape runner, a glue stick and washi tape. As we explained each product and demonstrated the techniques, everyone had the opportunity to repeat each method on their papers. The outcome would be a template for each person to display a picture o...

Today was His and Her Pirates Day!  Our birthday boy, Richard, was turning four and loves pirates so his mom asked us to custom design a pirate-themed craft for the party. Amanda, our creative director, decided to design pirate masks, an age appropriate craft not just for the boys, but for the girls too!  The masks were versatile enough with style and color choices so each child's craft would turn out unique. 

When we arrived to set up, we were greeted immediately by Richard, who wanted to know exactly what we were doing, what all of our stuff was and what we were going to be doing there.  To say that Richard was the best four year old host is an understatement.  He was the life of the party, greeting each guest as they arrived.  His mom told us they often call him "the mayor" because he has to make sure he talks to everyone. It was the cutest thing to observe and honestly, we can't say we have ever seen that before from a four year old....

Today was so exciting because we got the opportunity to share our love of crafting and entrepreneurship with a fantastic group of 10 year old Girl Scouts! We were hired to help kick off the girls' opening day with a bang, and what better way to do that than with a unicorn craft?? Right away when the girls came in, it was clear based off their excitement that they all shared a love for unicorns. One girl was dressed to the nines in complete unicorn attire (a shirt and socks to match), another girl had a unicorn keychain - SO adorable. It was very apparent that we were in the right place!

Samantha tried her best to start off the class with as much organization as possible but after school on a Friday proved difficult for their attention spans to focus on one thing at a time. Some kids were jumping ahead so we switched from one big guided class to two small sections with me at one table and Samantha at the other, which actually turned out to be much better! Having...

What a fun day to kick of the new school year!  PTNJ was hired by a mom who was throwing a birthday party for her six year old daughter, Liliana. She chose the Drop-In and craft option, which is our loosely guided approach to crafting. The kids can come and go as they please, make their craft and scamper off to other areas of the party and they aren't restrained to sitting down for a certain amount of time. For this party, Liliana chose two crafts for entertainment so her guests had an option - The Kids Real Selfie and The Unicorn Kit.  I would say by the kids reaction they couldn't wait to get started!

To our surprise, they all wanted to craft at the same time and came in a big wave of enthusiastic energy! Most of the girls (about eight or so) wanted to make a unicorn and about three kids wanted to make a selfie. Samantha was on the unicorn side and managed to hold the attention of all the girls and help them as they put their unicorns together.  I was on...
