There are a lot of things that you need to grow a creative business- it takes hard work, a little bit of luck, creativity, hustle, innovation, saavy but more than anything (in my opinion) it takes a whole lot of BRAVERY.
In my 20+ years of building a success creative business, I've made lots of decisions, I've failed, I've experienced success that I never could have dreamed of, I've evolved, learned new things, fallen flat on my face, picked myself up, taken risks, listened to my gut and slowly built a 6 figure business that has supported our family for the last 10 years.
When I look at everything that I've created the common factor in it all is making brave decisions. Sometimes they were small- like sending an email to a new creative friend while other times they were big- like spending money on marketing. Over and over again, my brave decisions lead to growth, evolution, profit, new ideas and success. While my journey has not been easy or fast or perfect, it has been one the best things that has ever happened to me and I want to share everything that I've learned along the way.
In this year long class I am sharing my experiences, my secrets, advice, pep talks, inspiration, resources and ideas to spark your own brave decisions for the business or the creative dreams that you have for your life!

I am SO PASSIONATE about creating on a budget and using what I have one hand! I am even more passionate about using trash and recycled materials in my mixed media projects. In this class we will be using an art journal to explore all kinds of prompts, mixed media techniques and exercises that make use of recycled materials, trash or things that would otherwise get thrown out.

We will be working through 1 lesson a day for 30 days. I will be sharing all kinds of concepts- using recycled materials for printmaking, stamping, mark making, creating unique backgrounds, collaged pages, building unique compositions pages with trash and so much more! My hope is to inspire you to create with unique materials and find inspiration in everyday things that so often get thrown out!

One of the most important ways that I challenge myself creatively is to limit my supplies! I know this sounds like the opposite of the freedom that goes with creativity but I’ve found when I limit my supplies, my ideas, skills and inspiration totally evolve and grow. 
In this class we will only be using one supply- a pen- to create. I will be sharing some of my favorite ways to daw and create with pen and ink. From texture to shading to creating unique doodles and drawings that push that pen in all kinds of creative ways!

$65.00 EARLY BIRD $45.00

spin art gift boxes

If you’ve followed me all these years, you will know that I love finding unique ways to get creative with my holiday wrapping! It’s so much fun to incorporate making art with gift giving. In the coming weeks I’ve got som fun creative wrapping ideas coming your way!

Today I’m sharing a process- spin art gift boxes- that is fun for all ages and a really colorful way to create unique wrapping! Swipe left for the process.

We create lots of spin art around here and instead of using a spin art machine, we use a salad spinner. I add a heavy piece of cardboard to the bottom for stability.

Next, we placed our plain gift boxes inside the spinner. .
Then it’s time to add paint- we select 2-3 colors and added a dime size drop to the top of the box.

Then it’s time to spin! Sometimes you’ll get great results right away and then other times you’ll want to go back with layers of color and more spinning.

The boxes will need lots of time to dry and then you can use them for wrapping! They are perfect for small things or gift cards.

The best part of this process is that it’s colorful, messy and unpredictable! It’s also a fun way to add a little art to your gifting
