We <3 October around here!

Starting with Cathy’s birthday on October 3 and ending with Halloween, we pack a lot of pumpkin-carving, costume-choosing, spooky-decorating, candy-corn-eating FUN into this month.

We created two fun Halloween projects for our October Paint Workshops at All Things New Again in Leesburg. Workshops are held on Saturday mornings and advanced registration is required. Please join us—and invite a friend! Or round up a group of friends and schedule a Private Paint Party. (See details below.)


We will supply everything you need to go home with a finished project—and look how cute these projects are!

INTRODUCING … Private Paint Parties!

private paint party graphicWe are very excited to be launching our new Private Paint Parties this month. Here’s how it works:

  • YOU: Round up your friends (minimum 4 people; max 6)
  • YOU: Pick a date/time for the party
  • YOU: Pick a project
  • YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS: Show up, paint and have fun!

Here’s what we’ll do:

  • WE: Supply everything you need to complete your projects
  • WE: Offer instruction and guidance so everyone goes home with a project they love—NO PRIOR PAINTING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY
  • WE: Provide refreshments

The cost per person depends on the project your group chooses and is the same price as a regular workshop. Both the Light-Up Pumpkin Trio and the Boo Sign projects are available for Private Paint Parties so if your group chooses the pumpkin trio, each person pays $39. We do need a firm head count prior to the party to ensure we have enough supplies for everyone’s project.

Private Paint Parties are a fun idea for a Girls Night Out, Moms’ Night Out — or anybody who wants a fun night (or day!) out with friends. Our schedule is flexible and our parties are a lot of fun. Call Cathy at 703-779-2991 to book your Private Paint Party today.

New Open Studio Hours on Saturdays from 3 to 5 pm

open studio hours graphicWe will begin hosting open paint studio hours on Saturday afternoons from 3 to 5 pm beginning October 4. Bring a small project to work on and we will supply all of the paint and finishes for you to make it beautiful. The cost is $35 and includes all of the paint and supplies you use during your open studio time. This is a great way to try out lots of new colors and techniques without the expense of buying several cans of paint.

Thursday, September 25 will be our last Thursday Night Paint Party. After that, the shop will no longer be open on Thursday nights.
