First Friday at A Creative Art Studio

First Friday at A Creative Art Studio

First Friday March at A Creative Art Studio

Join us for First Friday Denton at A Creative Art STUDIO, March 2nd, 2012 from 7 – 9 pm. This month we will have the double hitter musical talent of Kylee Pannel and Ben and Pia Owens. Kylee Pannel is a young singer-songwriter who will dazzle you with incredible voice. The Ben and Pia Owens Duo are new to playing at the studio but not new to music. Ben has been playing the guitar for about 20 years, sings, writes music and has performed in churches across the US and Japan under the name Two Tenors. Pia is originally from Lima, Peru and said that she has always been a closet singer.
Robin Jansen, the 5 minute Novelist, will return by popular demand. We will have our community painting and artist trading cards and art demonstrations so grab your friends and come join us at A Creative Art STUDIO for an evening of art and music.

Send in Your First Friday Announcements

For all the First Friday Denton participants – please have your announcements in by midnight Wednesday before First Friday. You can pretty much count on it not being published if it doesn’t arrive by Wednesday.

We obviously have some great new participants, and I took the opportunity of changing the look of the site to also add the newcomers to the site. Many of the kinks that had been finding their way into the site I’ve ironed out as well. Please join me in welcoming Atomic Candy, Seven Mile Cafe and SCRAP Denton. We also now have a permanent spot for The Chestnut Tree Tea Room. Not only do you have links in the sidebar, you will find a description of your businesses on pages that most closely match your “category” of business. As always, First Friday Denton benefits from links from you just like you benefit from links going your way from First Friday Denton.

As you peruse the new site, there is a sidebar on the right, and there is also information at the bottom. In the right sidebar, along with everything else, are the links for everyone involved. IF you have been missed, or want to be added, you will want to let me know.

Welcome to the ATOMIC AGE

Welcome to the ATOMIC AGE


We stopped in at Atomic Candy on the Square today, and just love the place. You can find every candy known to exist, and a lot of it is packaged in retro style wrappers that are sure to take you back in time. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to wait until next First Friday to visit Atomic Candy. I know I won’t.

Make sure you welcome Atomic Candy Owner Tim Loyd to the list of First Friday when you stop in at 105 W. Hickory St. His hours will be short on First Friday, closing at 8-pm is necessary as part of his location, so what you do is go get dessert first, then go eat! You can visit Atomic Candy’s website at www.atomic-candy.com, and be sure to check out their Facebook page as well at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Atomic-Candy/142414829202725?sk=info
