Jeepers October 2012 E-News


"The Nook"

Saturday, October 27, 2012

"The Nook" is a one-day workshop during which we will paint and decorate a lamp style roombox. We will finish the exterior of this fully assembled lamp base, which includes a four-way light switch (offering a wonderful nightlight interior), with a paint and stucco treatment. We will also stain the door and windows.

The magnetic front panel is removeable for ease of interior decorating with wallpaper and flooring as well as furniture placement (approximately 5" x 5-1/2" interior space). The door and two windows will be selected and purchased separately at the time of the workshop allowing you the opportunity to choose the style you prefer. The first model shown has the Palladian door and windows, but it is also available with Victorian or Traditional components.

The all-day workshop is October 27, 2012 beginning at 10:30 am. Remember, registration with your $85 payment is due by October 25, 2012. The lamp shade, door, and windows are NOT included in the base cost. You'll have the opportunity to select your favorite at the time of the workshop.

Jeepers 1st Annual Trees for Charity Event

Beginning Monday, November 7, 2011 we invited anyone to participate in our First Annual Christmas Trees for Charity event. You can still stop by Jeepers and pick up a free miniature Christmas tree to be decorated and returned to the shop for entry in the fund-raising competition. The tree must be mounted on a cardboard base not to exceed 6" square. All we ask is that participants agree to decorate and return the tree for display and judging throughout the month of December. Participants are limited only by their imagination! Create a country tree, a Victorian tree, a patrotic tree, whatever inspires you. Make your own ornaments, use beads, ribbons, whatever (non-food) items that you wish. Its all up to you. Its all for fun and a great cause. The trees will be on display in the shop throughout the month of December, during which time visitors will vote for their favorite tree by depositing money into the corresponding box above the trees. Anyone was welcome to participate. There are two categories: Youth (13 and under) and Adult. Prizes will awarded to one winner in each group. Trees are to be picked up the first week in January, following the event. Unclaimed trees will be sold.

Contact Jeepers (812-597-4346) for additional details.

All proceeds will benefit the Morgantown Community Kitchen. Trees will be on display the entire month of December. Vistors to the area and Jeepers are invited to choose their favorite. If you can't visit the shop, you can place your $1, $3 or $5 vote online using PayPal! The event is great fun and funds a great cause!
