Join me for a fun conversation with Nat Kalbach, the wizard behind Creative JumpStart. Which is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary! Grab a cup of coffee and come hang out with us. I’m sharing what’s off limits for me when adding color to my house – yes, I have limits, and what brings me joy and toilet paper.

What is Creative JumpStart? It’s an online mixed media workshop is designed to stoke your creativity and kick off the new year with play. You’ll get a new video every day, Jan. 1- Feb. 14th, each from a different artist. I’m over the moon excited to be one of them! This year’s theme is storyteller.

Each video is just about 10 minutes in length, making them the perfect bite-sized portion of inspiration to help make creating a part of your daily routine.

Join us in the virtual classroom, discover new techniques and grow artistically through the videos, and share your work and passion with other students.

Kick off the new year with some fun! Join Creative JumpStart 2021 and get a new video every day beginning January 1st, all the way through February 14th each with a different artist’s take on the theme of Storytelling! 

When I heard this theme, I was excited. Right after the excitement, I will admit, I was absolutely deer-in-the-headlights frozen.  I couldn’t think of a single storytelling thing to do. O.O.P.S.! Then I realized it was the perfect opportunity to show  you what to do if that ever happens to you!

You get that along with 44 other videos, each by a different artist! Dina Wakley, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, Mary Beth Shaw, Seth Apter and lots lots more! A buffet of downloadable inspiration!

Why go big this year? It’s the 10th anniversary of this one-of-a-kind online workshop hosted by Nathalie Kalbach. It’s super sized this year with a total of 45 artists, and online webinars, and giveaways from the sponsors, and a supportive community!  You can see all the details here.

Early bird price of $69.

Then when the workshop begins, on January 1st, it goes up to $89. 

So the best time to join in the fun is now if you want to get the early bird and save! Looking forward to starting 2021 off right with you, plenty of play and lots of creativity! Get signed up and join the fun!


Lining things up and getting it centered just right can be tough, but they don’t have to be! Getting the lips positioned so they open directly on the flap & getting it centered in the card, was all done without measuring. Check out the video to see how it’s all done!

And yes, I could have opened and closed the card for hours- it was wonderfully fun to just make the lips move!
