New Art Fix classes, New Blog and a Giveway—Enter to Win!

Greetings Dear Createful Community!

As we roll into the fall season, I have THREE exciting announcements:



Beginning in September, we are adding weekly Tuesday evenings to the Art Fix schedule. 

You can sign up for any Art Fix class in any week, which will now be:

Tuesdays, 5:30-8:30pm

Thursdays, 12:30-3:30pm


One Saturday each month (see Calendar), 12:30-3:30pm

Hop on over to our Meetup site to learn more about each class each week and to register. Find out more about the Art Fix program, class cards and our Special Introductory 2 for 1 offer here.

The next new thing that I am bursting with excitement to share with you is….can you hear the drum roll? I need a drum roll…



I am starting a new blog and it is awesome and it is for you!

I have exciting plans to share my art and my process with you on a weekly basis—a virtual extension of what I share at the studio—and it is up and waiting for you.

Check out my first post,  where I both SHOW and TELL my intentions: To share more with you about my creative life as a way to help you step into your creative life more fully too. 

The blog is going to be a fast read with lots of pics—because I don’t have a lot of time to write and you don’t have a lot of time to read—and super useful too. It's already filled with a full Resource Library that I built several years ago that includes tutorials, advice, and — bonus — “Best Of” writings from the early first years of my creative journey.


Oh, and it’s not going to be all serious all the time…For instance, there are hints that my Diva Art Journal will be making an appearance soon…








I hope you will subscribe and I know you will look forward to each new post. 

And in fact, just to give you a little incentive to subscribe to my blog:

I am super excited! The studio is growing and it’s just wonderful to see the creative spark come alive for more people at the studio. And I have to tell you it feels so right to extend the studio through my blog—to offer you more, to share more, and to create and teach and learn more with you—because that’s what we do together at Createful.  I want more creativity for all of us in our creative lives.

Thank you for being a part of it.
