cf iconToday is the day!   Final numbers need to be in by midnight TONIGHT.

We need to see how many lovely ones will be joining us in May, as I will contacting the Harrison Hot Springs Resort this Monday to give them our total numbers.

If we have enough students booked, we can still use all of the ballroom/classrooms that we have on our wish list.  🙂

Therefore, I must say that “the time for hesitation is though” (quote from the movie Empire Records).

You will not regret joining us on this wonderful adventure! We will have so much fun, learn new techniques, try out new creative products and laugh late into the night.

Oh My Starshine, the  joy and satisfaction you will feel after our artsy Spring Fling will be contagious!

Registration:  Registration deadline is January 25th.

Staying Off Campus: There are other hotels in the Harrison Hot Springs area, however, we cannot open up registration for these types of bookings until we have filled our contracted booking requirements to the resort. Plus, honestly, Harrison Hot Springs Resort has given us a fabulous price, which includes the meals (as mentioned below), event rooms, late night crafting rooms, countdown-06classrooms, the use of their on-site natural hot spring pools and the great proximity to your classrooms and meal/event locations. There is also a very high possibility, as well, that we won’t even have classroom space left for anyone wishing to stay off site.
