This is my new friend Sandy Pitaoulis, along with the oh-so-lovely Allie. I met Sandy when Suzie Q Studio was just down the aisle from her shop, Dream Dog Boutique, at the Crossroads Market.
As I was winding down my shop at the Crossroads, Sandy was working on opening a second, much larger store in lower Mount Royal, and when I told her about my plans to offer Serendipity BEAD STEW jewelry-making classes, Sandy had the FAB idea to have some of my events at her new location… Fun, or what?!
Please see below for some info about Sandy’s business, Dream Dog Boutique...
Growing up in Calgary, my family and I had a wide variety of pets over the years, including two very sweet dogs; a German Shepard and a Miniature Poodle, who were the best of friends.
As an adult and running my own businesses since my early twenties, I haven’t had the time for any pets in my life, but if I did, my “Dream Dog” would be a Standard Poodle, for sure!
What kind of dog is your “Dream Dog”?
IT’S A DOG’S LIFE...
If you are lucky enough to have a precious pooch in your life, but you haven’t already been to Dream Dog Boutique, check it out. You can tell that Sandy loves dogs by the unique assortment of items at both of her locations and how she lovingly welcomes her two and four-legged visitors into her store.
FYI… Unfortunately, the Crossroads can't allow any pets because of health codes with all of the food-related vendors, but Sandy’s Dream Dog Boutique location at 1407 11 Street S.W., in Lower Mt. Royal, absolutely does allow pets, and there’s even a dog park right across the street!
DO THE “STEW”, IT’S GOOD FOR YOU!...
… And hopefully some dogs in need too
I’m very excited to be able to offer my Serendipity BEAD STEW jewelry-making classes at Dream Dog Boutique in lower Mount Royal, and I’m even more excited to announce that 10% of the proceeds from every class will be donated to one of Sandy’s favourite dog charities called “Parachute for Pets”!
Did you know… It’s been medically proven that being creative is important to you health and well being? Yes, it’s true. Being creative “Feels Good” and the feeling will be multiplied when you make your BEAD STEW Bangle-icious Bracelet at Dream Dog Boutique, knowing that a portion of your class cost will go to such a worthy cause, don’t you think?!
To find out more about what "Parachute for Pets” does, take a look at the informative VIDEO below:

OODLES OF CHOICES!
In the spirit of expressing your own inimitable style, the beads in our Serendipity BEAD STEW Kits are all INDIVIDUALLY and artfully hand-selected in distinctly unique color-combos… It’s almost like some mystical force draws the beads together that are serendipitously meant to be in each bead kit combo.
As well, our custom-designed kits are created in very Limited Editions. Once the Edition is Sold Out, we don't duplicate the combination, so don't miss out on the Serendipity Bead Stew kit that’s DESTINED for you!

Creating a BEAD STEW bracelet is perfect for a group setting because the project doesn’t require intense concentration, which means that you can still be social with your fellow participants, at the same time as creating your bracelet… Fun, or what?!
At every Serendipity BEAD STEW Class and “Private Jewelry-Making Party”, you’ll receive expert instruction and design help with the creation of your one-of-a-kind “Bangle-icious” Bracelet, plus it’s always great to be inspired by other attendees.
In addition to BEAD STEW jewelry-making class at Dream Dog Boutique, I’ll be adding other venues for BEAD STEW DIY Classes, as well as offering “Private Parties” for all kinds of occasions: Birthday and Retirement Parties, Bachelorette Parties, Bridal Showers, etc. Stay tuned for more details about pricing, private parties and and how to book your spot in upcoming BEAD STEW Class at Dream Dog Boutique and other venues.
