We are so proud and honored to announce that Hastings, Ne artist Jocelyn Weber, along with her business, A Perfect Gift, have been asked to participate in a fantastic opportunity to showcase their talents in Omaha, Ne. Whether you know Jocelyn personally, or have just wandered into the doors of A Perfect Gift, you would know you are meeting someone very special. Every week when students enter APG for art lessons, it is wondrous to watch her help lift a person’s confidence by encouraging them to find their “inner artist”. She has been creating art and jewelry for over 20 years. Jocelyn is a truly beautiful person, inside and out. She exudes her beauty and creativity into anything she does! Thank you, Jocelyn for being an inspiration to the town of Hastings, Ne.  Best of luck to you as you take on this new adventure at HOLIDAY RAWk 2014.

Had such a wonderful time celebrating Lucy’s birthday today! She and her friends painted some fantastic tiles! Can’t wait to see how they turn out! Thanks for celebrating your birthday downtown Lucy and friends!!

We would like to introduce yet another fantastic opportunity to show your creative chops at A Perfect Gift!  We are now offering classes and parties for pottery painting. Come down and pick out your favorite bisque design. “Trendy Tiles” classes have started, paint a cute quote or a seasonal tile (6×6), with ribbon and wire included for $25 or a 3×3 tile for $20. Stop in or call to set up your appointment today!

We had such a fun time with Karys and her friends celebrating her birthday with a painting party at A Perfect Gift!! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day! Here are some pictures of all of you creating some real masterpieces!

My amazingly talented sister has been awfully busy with her newest pieces of jewelry. I would love to wear all of these myself and be a “walking billboard” for her designs, but I must not keep these to myself! She has been handcrafting jewelry for over 15 years and it seems that every time she starts to design she brings these fabulous pieces into existence! Come down to see her newest stuff!! Or check out her items on the website!
