Lots Going On! Special offers, Giveaways and New Classes!

Oh my goodness...TGIF! What a crazy fun week! 
Unlike last Friday, there is no snow on the ground  this week and I actually wore shorts when I went to the pool for my swim (which was much needed after a few days respite  from the gym...not really intentional,  as they were doing maintenance on the pool). In the meantime, I walked laps around my  Okay ya, not so much.    It has been a busy few days,   with lots of cool things happening which I've been working on behind the scenes.  Today, I wanted to share with you a few (okay a lot) of the creative events and specials for you to participate in over the next few weeks and in the upcoming months.
First up, I will be back at the wonderful Random Arts in Saluda, NC March 7-9th for three fun filled painting and collage classes:  Angelic Inspirations, Pods-Abilities, and Texturize This.   In addition to the workshops, Jane has a super cool mixed media art store and a new addition of artsy clothing to choose from.  Hope to see you there!!!!

 Registrations are filling up so reserve your spot today  by emailing Jane at:  For more info, please check out the Random Arts Calendar of Events.

 Some of you may or may not know  that Art Is YOU...will be in Memphis this year, April 28-May 4th, and I am joining them for the first time at this "Dixie" event for 3 paint splattering fun- filled classes! I have new cowgirl boots,  tons of new projects for my students (and prizes of course), samples for the students to play with and more.  Here's the BIG short term, limited time and amount offer...there are a FEW (12 as of yesterday) coupon codes for my classes that you can get $60.00 off of your registration.  This is HUGE!!
You can order other classes in addition to mine if you like, but you MUST act fast because this coupon code won't be available long.
                                              How to get your discount?  

Enter code; JODI (all caps) in the Event Code Box on page 2 of our registration form.

I'll also be working the  Art Trunk show Wednesday evening, April 30th from 6-9, offering lots of fantastic, colorful goodies to bring tons of happiness to your home.

Believe it or not, there are more events and activities planned this year but for now, I will leave you with this thought as a student had a question  this week on when they should put their creative work out into the universe.

My answer was Today.

"A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault." -John Henry Newman

I'm still learning and growing every day. If I waited until the time was 'right' or until I was 'established, perfect, had enough..etc'....I just can't imagine where my life would be now.
