Amanda Shimmel's Pallet Painting Party | Bubba O'Malley's | Saturday, 13. January 2018

Are you a friend of Amanda? Come join us & create a beautiful sign. Never painted before? No worries! The instructor, Emily, will make it easy. This is a Pay-In-Advance event, so please make your payment to Amanda by Friday, Jan 5. The basic sign cost is $30, but there are a few options that may cost more. Your project includes everything needed to create a completed hanging sign. Choose the quote/sign that you want to make from the quotes/projects shown on the survey (everyone will choose their own quote/sign). Only those planning to attend should check an option on the survey – please check only one and that is the one that you will make. RSVP on the event page, comment on the post that you want to make, & then contact Amanda to make your payment by Friday, Jan 5. Invite your friends ahead of time to join us – it reduces confusion when they can choose their project.

  • Payments have been made & supplies have been ordered, so any of you that are unable to make it you will be able to pick up your supplies from the host after the event. You can paint it on your own (I have instructions) or you’re welcome to bring it to one of my upcoming studio workshops (RSVP in advance). I offer 2 workshops a month, and dates are usually listed on my FB website. Feel free to message me on my site if you have questions. I am looking forward to meeting you all!
  • Time is up! Make your final choice, give your payment & complete project info to Amanda by tomorrow. Make sure she has all of your project options - give her all pertinent personalization info, any special requests that we’ve discussed, & add-ons. You will be asked to verify this info again on FB at the beginning of next week . It's important to check it on Monday to look it over. IMPORTANT: I get so many messages from party guests about custom designs or requests that it is difficult to track them all. If you have contacted me about creating a custom sign or any other question, please provide your host with all details including: exact quote, size, specific graphics, etc.
  • As all of you are aware, I had a loss in my family! Thank you all for your support. However this is resulting in the reschedule of this event to January 13th @ 330pm. Please see updates to options for the party since it is after the 1st of the yr. I will let you all know more in the near future!
  • Only 4 more days to register & invite a girlfriend to Amanda's Painting Party. You’re going to love this party - it is fun, relaxing, and addicting! Be sure to invite a friend, check the box on the survey with your project choice, and get your payment to Niece ASAP - don't let her stress. She will have her design fees waived & chose the quotes/projects offered. Plus, she gets her sign for free! For those who can't make it, you may date your own sign party and get the same bonuses. AND Niece will get a half-price sign at your party when you host. I am now dating parties thru January. You are welcome to use my studio for groups of 12 or less. Do you think that you friends would love this too? Ask me what dates are available!

  • IMPORTANT: Are you confused about how this painting event works? Can't see the photos or descriptions for each project? Make sure to: 1. Read the event description. 2. Read the survey post instructions at the top of the discussion page 3. Click GOING & then check which project you want; then, comment with your size, price, and any other project info. 4.

Feel free to post any questions and Amanda or I will be happy to help. (tag Emily Gieselman to ensure that I see it)
  • Alright peeps just few days left to get your project set! Any questions please get with myself or Emily Gieselman!
  • Are you planning to make a personalized sign? When should you use an apostrophe with your name? It is so confusing! I use this chart that shows the proper spelling for plural names. I will be creating your stencil using these rules. If you want it to be different, please specify this to your host when she writes down your order. I will change it to look like this chart, unless it clearly states that you want an exception. *If your sign includes a name that is possessive (i.e. Bruce's Barn) then it will have an apostrophe.
  • What is the difference between pine and pallet wood? Please choose the wood type when ordering. Either will work & can be painted to your liking. Pine is milled and is smoother. It is wood that you find in a lumber yard. There are less gaps and imperfections, but it is usually heavier. Consider the weight when choosing the wood for larger sizes. Pallet wood is usually thinner, and there will be gaps and more imperfections. - it is rustic-looking. Pallet wood sign boards come in a variety of wood tones and different types of wood on one sign - or it may be all one type of wood. Pallet wood tends to be less stable & may warp slightly after you take it home.

  • If you are planning on bringing a guest(s) with you for the painting fun, please tag them so they can join the event and pick their project! :) I am so excited, these are so much fun to do and they look amazing! Plus you add beautiful decor to your home that YOU made!
  • Amanda has really been looking forward to this painting party! She is looking for at least 8 friends to attend. We have limited space so RSVP before the space fills up. This is so much fun - and this is one painting that you will be proud to show off! Do you have a girlfriend, sister, or mom that would love to join us? Just add your girlfriend to this event and she can choose her own quote.
  • Do you have a friend, sister, or neighbor that would love to get out for a bit or do some painting? Even guys can join us. There is no free-hand painting involved & anyone can do this! Many self-professed "non-crafters" have changed their tune once they are finished. It is a lot of fun!! Please add your friend to the event & she can choose her own project.

  • Okay all my invites have been on days I'm scheduled to work.☹️😥I really miss you and a few others. Wish I could be there and catch up and have fun. Maybe next time I won't be working 7am to 7:30 pm. Have a great time!
  • Be sure to RSVP, check a project option on the survey, & then make payment arrangements with Amanda no later than Wednesday, Nov 22. Many of you will want an easy way to pay for your project. PAYPAL is a terrific, safe way to transfer money and pay for online purchases. No need to mail checks or meet to deliver payments. You may also transfer $ to anyone else who has a PayPal acct - it is free to use & are no fees if you transfer from your PP acct or bank account. You'll need to verify your acct in advance for these options. Consider setting up this easy payment system today, because IT TAKES A DAY TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS. It Is simple to do, but they will have to authorize your account. Look into it so that you can make this & future payments effortlessly. Amanda, can your friends transfer money to you using Paypal or do you prefer something else?
