December 2019
It's the HOLIDAY season! A bustling time of visiting friends and family, enjoying scrumptious meals and preparing for the NEXT holiday. With all the cheery music and vibrant decorations, the next few weeks can be almost magical. Like it was when we were children without responsibilities.

Yet instead of embracing a joyous, uplifting time, we are often burdened with so much stress that it makes us miserable. We obsess over preparing a perfect meal, getting the perfect gift, appearing to have the perfect life and worst of all... we are excrutiatingly critical of ourselves for falling short in our attempts to make everything 'perfect'.

During the holidays please try not to be so hard of yourself. It is a guarantee the world won't end if we burn the turkey, buy the wrong gift or heaven forbid, let others see we are indeed human and make mistakes.

Make time for yourself. Breathe. Gravitate towards those that bring you peace and support you. Grab hold of that holiday magic and let it fill your heart and soul with happiness... then share it with those who need to be reminded they are not in this alone.

Remember... you ARE worthy of the love and joy that is often spoke of during the holidays. With all your faults and failures you are still worthy and deserving... and always will be.

Did you know Serenity Bead Shop can help you with your fundraising? Rather than do the same old 'been there, done that' fundraisers, let us host a jewelry making event catered specifically for your group or cause! School colors, themes, we are happy to work with you to create a memorable, enjoyable jewelry project.

Private Parties

Are you or your group looking for something creative to do? Consider a jewelry party! Bridal groups, mommy & me, birthday or reunion celebrations, ladies night out! We can accommodate  up to eighteen guests and we will be glad to work with you on picking a project that would best suit your group and budget. Bring whatever food and/or beverages you desire while you enjoy learning how to make your very own jewelry piece.

Open Beading

Every Thursday from Noon till 4:00pm we invite you to join us for Open Beading in our spacious classroom. Stuck on a project and need assistance? Bring it with you and we will try to help! Wish to learn some jewelry making basics such as stringing or earring loops? Come on by! We would love to teach you! Come enjoy the pleasant company of other beaders while working on your current project. You are welcome to pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee with us!
There are so many great events happening in our little city all the time! The Greensburg Business & Professionals Association, the Downtown Greensburg Project, the Westmoreland Cultural Trust and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art are all excellent about posting local events on their websites and Facebook. Parking is free on weekends and after 5pm weekdays.

Does the thought of wrapping presents make you cringe?
Come wrap your presents at Serenity from December 4th - 20th!
Take advantage of our large table space to wrap your gifts in peace. No kitties or puppies attacking your wrapping paper. No children or nosy spouses trying to see what you're doing. No sitting on the floor because all your flat places are filled with beads and projects. Relax in a calm, peaceful, uncluttered environment that will prevent you from turning into a Scrooge.
Yes, along with your wrapping supplies you can bring wine and friends but please call ahead if you have a group.

Really, really don't want to tackle the wrapping at all?
Bring me wrapping paper, tape, bows and tags and I'll do it for you! Seriously!
I do kindly request gifts be left for me to wrap at my leisure. And yes, it is free!

There will be no gift wrapping in the classroom on Saturdays during classes but a table will still be available in the back. Any gifts left for wrapping MUST be picked up before closing on December 21st. A fee will be charged if you did not bring wrapping supplies.
