Lulu’s Crafty Corner in Payson is opening soon, and what better way to kick things off than with an entertaining evening of crafting benefiting the American Cancer Society? Lulu’s will have a wide assortment of ceramic wares for you to give your own personal touch. Join the Key for Women group at Lulu’s, 332 S. 100 West, Payson, on Thursday, June 9, starting at 6 p.m. You can choose your own ceramic to paint while you enjoy the fun, knowing that you are helping the Key for Women relay team raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
“We couldn’t be more excited,” said store owner Shessann Logue about the upcoming opening of Lulu’s Crafty Corner, which she and her sister, Kathy Anderson have built together. “My sister Kathy and I have enjoyed ceramics and wood crafts for as long as I can remember,” Logue said, adding, “Nothing provides better memories than sitting around a table crafting with friends or family while we share snacks and gossip. It’s not just about the finished project, it has always been about the experience.”
It is the memorable experiences that Lulu’s hopes to create with ceramics and wood cutouts. The sisters aim to provide a fun and friendly atmosphere where fellow crafters can make memories of their own. Lulu’s takes reservations for birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, date nights, family parties and girl’s night out. Lulu’s has teamed up with a premier local catering company, Fiesta Catering, and V Sisters Homemade Creations to provide everything from appetizers and entrees to desserts and baked goods for your event.
“We really want to go above and beyond for our customers,” said Anderson. “We hope that everyone who comes through our doors leaves feeling like royalty – we like to call it the Royal Tweetment.” In addition to Lulu’s “Royal Tweetment,” the store offers other “Bonus Tweetments” that can be added to sweeten the deal such as fresh floral bouquets, handmade chocolates, handcrafted soaps and gift baskets, with all available for delivery. “What’s better than getting a dozen roses delivered on your birthday in a vase crafted by your kids?” asked Anderson.
Lulu’s Crafty Corner’s grand opening is scheduled for Thursday, June 16, at noon. The public is invited to check out the store while enjoying light refreshments and are welcome stay and craft for the afternoon.
