This stuff is tough, and they were all super motivated to continue to
We are looking into doing online sales, in addition to our sales in house during Salt Lake Gallery Stroll! This is an exciting, and slightly overwhelming time for us here at CCA as we try to build inventory that we think you all will be interested in purchasing!

We are planning to make cards for the August Gallery Stroll. Calendars? Pins? Wrapping paper? Tell us what you want to see!

We are almost ready. The walls look fabulous, everybody is excited about ice cream treats, and there's just a little bit more cleaning to be done! We hope to see you tonight! 6-9pm. Be there
