Yes, it is true. Jeanne Oliver is hosting another E-Course. Back in January I signed up for her Creatively Made E-Course and it was well worth it. Not only was I inspired to create, but I also met wonderful people, was able to watch videos about other artists and how they started in the world of arts, along with video tours of their studios, and best of all Jeanne is such a genuine instructor. I received many tools and the course was only $48.00.

The next E-Course is about building a business. To get a complete list of what is covered please click here. Jeanne is also giving away ten spots! Be sure to visit her blog and see the rules on how to enter.

Good luck! I hope you can be a part of Jeanne’s E-Course. Please be sure to stop back and leave a comment if you sign up or if you win a spot.

Friday Photo Party

Jeanne Oliver is going to host a photo link party on Fridays. All of the details should be available on her blog tomorrow. Please join in on the fun. Linking is a wonderful way to meet others, keep committed to a goal, and to be inspired.

Once the information is on her blog, I will also post it here. So get your camera ready. Jeanne is using Instagram with her iPhone. I will be using Retro Cam with my Droid. However you want to participate will work.

Stay tuned,

Santos Dolls

Have you heard of Santos Dolls? You can read about the history, here. The name is taken from the Spanish word, Saint. The dolls flourished during the 1700s and 1800s.

I had never heard of them, until I signed up for the Creatively Made workshop. We will be making these dolls. I went to Hobby Lobby today and did not find the supplies I needed for this project. However, I am going to look online and see if I can find the supplies.

If you have made these before, I would love to hear from you or perhaps you can share a link with a photo. Once I have completed the project, I will post a photo.

Altered Book Journal

Well I am still working away with the Jeanne Oliver Creative Workshop projects. Currently, I am working on an altered book journal. I have made these in the past and realized that I have always made them for someone else. As with some projects I was struggling for inspiration and the process was not flowing, I kept painting over certain parts, tearing other parts off and starting over, and then I walked away for a little while.

Thankfully, I have a wonderful muse and it happens to be my husband. He was my muse before we were married too. With his help, I figured out that I needed a purpose other than the workshop to create this journal.  After talking to my muse and watching some inspirational videos from other artists, I decided to make the book for myself.

It will be the place where I write down ideas, questions, wishes, etc. A place other than Evernote where I can store ideas and read through them again. Today has been very productive now that I have a purpose. I am hoping the altered book journal will be done tomorrow so I can post a picture.

The journal featured is one I created in Jeanne Oliver’s Class, Creatively Made. So far, I am really enjoying the class. There are several projects each week that we share with one another. There are guest artist videos and a lot of inspiration. People from all over the world have signed up to be a part of this adventure.

I will continue sharing some of the projects we create throughout the course.
