Have you been watching videos trying to figure out how to create these amazing Geode inspired paint pours? The tricky and often very expensive bit is the resin. 
Well I have a treat for you... Sign up for Creative Haven YXE’s new workshop and learn to create a beautiful Geode without resin. That’s correct, using a variety of Pebeo mixed media products we will create a stunning Geode masterpiece. 

Becky will teach you all about the amazing and incredibly diverse Pebeo mixed media products. From stunning acrylic paints to fabulous glass oil paints Pebeo has something for everyone. The possibilities are truly endless once you have the basics of these amazing products.

The House That Love Built -Our FundRazor for RMHC

Creative Haven YXE is proud to announce that we will be donating crafting supplies and Becky will be lending her creative coaching services to Ronald McDonald House Charities Saskatchewan. 

About Ronald McDonald House Charities Saskatchewan

“...Whether we know it or not, most of us at some time have had a friend, acquaintance or family member stay at a Ronald McDonald House, whether it be at Ronald McDonald House Charities Saskatchewan or elsewhere in Canada. The staff members and numerous volunteers at Ronald McDonald House are dedicated to providing a warm and inviting atmosphere for those families who are unfortunately living through a stressful period where their child is under medical care. Ronald McDonald House is a space where families who are experiencing similar stressful situations can bond, share a meal, exchange stories and, with the help of our staff and volunteers, support each other in their time of need. Having a "home away from home" plays an important part in easing the stress families feel during this time…”  - Jim Flath, Chair RMCH (

Crafting & Cropping for a local cause  

Through our upcoming fundraising event on July 27th, 2019, you can help us to provide brand new craft supplies for kids of all ages in RMHC craft space. 


On July 27th, 2019 Becky will be shaving her head in the DIY studio at 4pm for the cause. How can you contribute? From 10am-5pm, all proceeds of your DIY studio projects will be donated to provide brand new supplies for the RMHC craft room.  Pop into to the studio to make anyone of our DIY projects (various prices) and all proceeds will be donated! Also, We have a $5 donation link set-up on our website (you can donate as much or as many times as you would like) and the person with the highest donation will have the opportunity to do the honours of holding the shears and buzzing Becky's hair for the cause! 

Kids Helping Kids

Bring the kids into our studio on July 27th to make their own crafts for the cause. Every dollar of proceeds made that day will help a child have access to crafting and new supplies at the Ronald McDonald House Charity.
