Craft the Perfect Holiday Card
Can’t find a family photo where dad isn’t blinking? You can still send out thoughtful holiday cards thanks to PaperSource’s helpful workshop. Sign up to reserve your spot in the Thursday class ($28) at their NorthPark location. (That’s tonight!)
Create a Picture Perfect Tree
Local designer Billy Milner trims Christmas trees for a regular stable of clients around the country. If you’re looking to up your decorating game this year, Billy is offering tree-trimming classes at his Deep Ellum shop, Life of Riley.
