Resin Jewelry Class at Cailin Art Studio

This is a partially sponsored post. We were given admission for the purpose of review.


Resin Jewelry Class for a fun Girl's Night Out or club activity!


 photo Resin Jewelry Class 1_zpsc913e29q.png 

Cailin Art Studio in Crestwood hosts monthly resin jewelry classes. Join them for a fun girl's night out or bring your girl scout troop to learn a new craft!

Ladies, grab a friend, your mom or your daughter and get creative at Cailin Art Studio in Crestwood. This community art studio hosts Girls Night Out, and one of the classes is creating resin jewelry.

 photo using tools_zpsgkp6qich.jpgA few ladies and I had the opportunity to check out the class for ourselves.  I was hesitant to try the class because I had no idea what to expect.  I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding it was to sit with other ladies, create, share stories and see our final pieces.

We were all in similar boats of not knowing how to even start the project, but there was plenty of encouragement around the work table.  Our instructor, Ivy Clinton, gave us easy to follow directions and broke up the project in manageable steps.  She provided examples of finished pendants and earrings for us to see before we started.  As we picked our backgrounds for our pendants and earrings, the project started forming.

All of the supplies and tools were provided for us, but your resin jewelry can include personal mementos if you choose.  Ivy explained that she has seen locks of hair included, special messages, birth stones, photos and more.

 photo e6af78e8-466b-4ecd-bb3a-ff941cdf256a_zpskzbtxdya.jpgOnce we were finished layering our materials in our pendant and earrings, we then poured the resin.  It was neat to learn about this process.  Creating the perfect dome above the materials required a little finesse, but nothing too difficult.  It takes about 24 hours for the resin to set so you will have to plan to pick up your pieces the next day or so.

The cost for the class is around $45. The studio invites you to bring in your own beverages and snacks if you want.  If you are looking for a unique night out with friends or an opportunity to create a special gift for someone, definitely check out the resin jewelry class at Cailin Art Studio.  You will leave with beautiful jewelry and a sense of pride in your creation.

Keep up with events & register for classes - follow Cailin Art Studio on Facebook here.
Cailin Art Studio is located at 7910 Floydsburg Road in Crestwood.

The Nature Center at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve

Indoor (or outdoor) fun at Creasey Mahan Nature Center! 

 photo Nature Center_zpsejiaeljx.png

Free fun waiting to be had a one of Oldham County's greatest gems! Check out the Creasey Mahan Nature Center in Goshen.

When it's too cold (or even too hot) to enjoy nature outside, Creasey Mahan's Nature Preserve is the perfect place to explore.  The indoor center is open Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am-2pm and is located in Goshen at 12501 Harmony Landing Road.

We recently visited the center and really enjoyed our time there.  There are 4 dioramas including wetlands, woodlands, Native American life and artifacts and Kentucky fish.  The center's murals were recently repainted and the new paintings are beautiful.  We did the indoor scavenger hunt that allowed us to walk around the entire center.  The list included animals, stones, artifacts and other interesting items.  The hunt allowed us to see the intricate details of the exhibits.

The bird blind is a neat small room where we were able to use small binoculars to see around the garden outside.  Bird feeders and a small pond are outside where birds, squirrels and other furry friends are having fun.  My kids love to see the different color birds that eat from the feeders.  In the warmer months, the preserve has many butterflies and hummingbirds.  Visitors can also see honey bees at work in this room.

There are plenty of hands-on activities for children to do at the center.  Complimentary crafts are set up for families to do together.  The Magical Forest Imagination Station is a small room where children can play with stuffed animals, read books or draw on the chalkboard.  There is also a small sandbox table filled with plastic bugs, reptiles and other creatures.

Groups can contact the center if they would like to set up a special visit.  Entry to the center and preserve is free.  The Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve relies on visitor donations, grants and other charitable donations.  Be sure to stop in soon, explore the center, walk the preserve and make a donation to keep this great center and other programs going.  The center is a great asset to Oldham County and the surrounding area.
