Here's the link to a free Creative Calling Summit, hosted by Jo Cauldrick. I have never heard of this artist, author, and coach before I came across this, but I do follow one of the artists she interviews in this series, Carrie Schmitt.

In the intro, Jo Cauldrick says that there will be 21 video interviews sent to your mailbox each day. "Discover 21 master creatives, what they think about creativity and how it can help you to unleash, nurture and amplify yours." There was no mention on how many days these videos would be posted and available for viewing on whatever platform she is using. I sometimes sign up for this type of summit and then watch them when I can get to them, but they usually all have a cut-off date. I'm going to give it a try!

Great recycled art project! And, of course, I have saved up a lot of good jar lids for another someday project. This would be an easy one.
And I signed up for yet another daily email. Thanks! I think I'll enjoy this site.

I loved pottery but I don't think I can throw anymore because my hands are so weak. I wouldn't mind doing slab work though. It takes a long time to get good at it - I didn't get good. LOL

I've taken a couple of pottery courses, and I can tell you that I didn't excel -- by any stretch of the imagination!
I wouldn't mind trying this technique someday with a simple air-dry, no-bake clay.

Yes and after having mine for several months I have an idea of what I want. It has to be small enough to fit in my purse and I don't want lines. The rest will be used for collage, calendar, todo's etc.

If any of you are on Facebook, do you sign up for any craft-related groups? I have joined a few bookbinding groups, and I've come across so much inspiration through the links I've found there. One of the sites has monthly challenges, and the members display the the books they've made. I'm amazed at the creativity!

Yes! YouTube and Pinterest -- the ultimate creative sites! I joke that they are both like cosmic black holes for me, and I can get lost in them for hours, clicking from one great project to another.

I thought you'd like this one, Carol! I was lucky to find a link to it from another artist I follow on Facebook. We used to have several other textile artists who were active on this team.

From Donna Downey --

Free Online Workshop
"Mixed Media Journaling"
Tuesday, January 8th at 2:00pm or 7:00pm (Eastern Time Zone)

SparkFriends: At the end of her free workshops is almost always a push to sign up for the entire workshop at a special price, but you can leave the group if you don't want to hear the spiel. I've participated in several of these free workshops and have enjoyed most all of them. You don't have to have the same supplies to get inspiration from her work.

There are limited seats, so register at this link to save your spot:

(Edited -- so hopefully this works now!)

Last night I attended a lecture by Austin Kleon, an author best known for one of his books, "Steal Like an Artist." I especially like his list of 10 things that have helped him stay creative in chaotic times. His talk last night was very similar to the one shown on this link.

If you have time someday, take a look at the rest of his website, too. It's full of lots of great ideas! This guy would definitely make my list of "10 People (Dead or Alive) You Would Like to Invite to a Dinner Party."

Make It Artsy is now showing its Series 400 videos.

This episode will be available from June 29 - July 6.

Series 400, Episode 401 - Mediums

Not all artists use brushes, and paint is not their only medium of choice. On today's episode, we begin with a lesson inspired by Camille Pissarro as we paint using a palette knife instead of a brush. Then meet Dina Wakley for a graffiti inspired, modern street art design. We finish up with Cheryl Boglioli and a 3D sculpture using an interesting medium to create a female form reminiscent of modernism.

(And please excuse the cross-posting if you have also seen this link on the Before the Landfill - Crafty Recyclers' team discussion.)

Joggles.com has lots of video tutorials on their website. Today they have one about using paper napkins in collages. I've tried this technique before in my journal pages and altered book pages, and I like how they turn out because there are so many beautfiul napkin designs out there.

Some of the things I enjoy watching on YouTube are the TED Talks, and I found this one yesterday. Since the presenter talks about creativity, I thought some of you might enjoy this talk, as well. (This one is 13 minutes 39 seconds long.)

"Cherry blossoms and rainbows, bubbles and googly eyes? Why do some things seem to create such universal joy? In this captivating talk, Ingrid Fetell Lee reveals the surprising tangible roots of joy and shows how we can find - and create - more of it in the world around us."

Me, too! I have subscribed to several YouTube channels (or whatever you call them), so I get weekly reminders if I've missed one of my favorites.

Some nights I find myself staying up late watching music videos. And you're right -- the crafts instructions, and inspiration are great!

I LUV Youtube! If I need help on a project - need to fix something - or just need inspiration there it is. Am I the only one who is hooked?

I have 24 clothes hangers I plan to craft with. I am attempting to get over my fear of scissors. Last round of crafting, I clipped my hand instead of the ribbon... Not fun...

As I am getting out the winter clothes, I might need to borrow a few of the hangers for the closet.

Have a super Thursday!

Judith316,

I finally have to call it quits! I clicked on your link to be taken to google, searched, then was taken to yahoo. I went through so much yahoo that my eyes hurt! So many good crafts to do. My ribbon scraps will go to good use.

So, thank you. I do not have the common sense to google or yahoo. LOL I am book smart, but have no common sense.

Have a good tomorrow!

IMPROVINGME, gift baskets are so unique...a true joy to give and receive.

JUDITH316, thank you for the link! Tonight, when done with work, I will surely learn using the link. I had to buy kids' scissors... The last time I used scissors to clip ribbon, I accidentally clipped my hand...not fun.

Thanks for the tip! I enjoyed reading several articles on the website and I liked watching the YouTube videos, too. I'll have to go back when I have more time.
I've never considered making gift baskets, but this makes me want to learn how to create some for Christmas gifts.

The 200 Series of videos on "Make It Artsy" are being shown over again, one video per week, on their website. Episode #201 will be available until October 6, and there are 13 different videos in the 200 Series.

There are many types of projects on this show, so it definitely fits in with our All Kinds of Crafty team members' interests.

This is a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers on how to create "Duoprinting with Chlorophyll." The artist uses a Sizzix Big Shot to run her cards through, but I first learned this technique (which I haven't used in years) by basically hammering the plants which are inserted between papers. Granted, they probably won't come out as smooth as these, but you'll still get an image. I liked that in the video she also shows samples of plants that work well.

I am, and I used to spend a lot of time there, as evidenced by my 12 boards, 4.8K pins and 544 likes! Then I figured I'd never make any of those crafts if I just kept looking at them and just pinned them, so I don't spend near the time on Pinterest now that I previously spent.
McJulieO and I worked on a few projects this week that we found on Pinterest.
My "pin" name is CraftTeaNonna.
Take a look at my quotes board if you have time. I've tried to collect mainly illustrated ones that mean something to me.

Thanks for this one. I am struggling with freeing my mind enough to make a meaningful 2017 to do list. This will help. BTW I turned this into a PDF and put it on my desktop for future reference. Easy to do and I saves me time when searching for a prompt.

37 Art Therapy Techniques for De-Stressing

py-techniques_us_56562017e4b072e9d1cR>19f9b


"Art therapy is a form of therapy predicated on the belief that artistic expression has the power to help us in healing, in self-esteem or simply in chilling out. It’s unique in that most other forms of therapy rely on language as the foremost mode of communication, whereas art requires something different, something harder to define."

Yesterday (December 1) was the first day of Lisa's 12 Days of Christmas.

For the first twelve days in December there will be daily posts, giving away printables, collage packs, zines, postcards, and more. Lisa Vollrath is using a scavenger hunt format this year, so you have to search in different areas of her various websites to find the goodies -- but it's an easy search because she gives hints. Be sure to peek in every day, and grab whatever's posted.

I may have recommended this site at another time. Shelley Klammer, a Registered Counsellor and a Registered Expressive Arts Consultant/Educator, has several free e-courses on her Expressive Art Workshops web site. While most of them offer various prompts and exercises to help with emotional healing, there are benefits, for taking the courses when dealing with physical illnesses and body pain, as well.

I took one of them that was free last year, the Heal Your Heart with Intuitive Collage workshop. It is offered this year for $10 or $25 or $40, whichever you would like to pay. I felt that it really helped to ease my mind when I was dealing with several months of daily migraine headaches.

All of Shelley's workshops look really interesting, but another that I think I might try someday is the free 30-day Photo Therapy class. Also, I think her Daily Journal E-Courses, that were inspired by Julia Cameron's "Artist Way" morning pages, might help me dig deeper while writing morning pages.

I just watched another episode of Make it Artsy at makeitartsy.com/index.htm .

This episode 105 will just be available until November 18, 2016, but after that time, Episode 106 will be available for a week. Mary Hettmansperger, a metalsmith, had another segment on this episode (105) where she showed how to create various patinas on copper. If you see this post after that video has been taken down, you can click on the project tab and see photos of her work and you can download the project instructions. I was so intrigued with this project -- and the other 3 projects on this episode are interesting, too.

My PBS station has not picked up this series yet. Hopefully they will someday.

Cat -- Don't know if you had time to watch this episode, but the second guest, Mary Hettmansperger, demonstrated how she crafted metal hinges from copper and used them for books and jewelry. The instructions can be printed out under the "Projects" heading, and the artists' websites are listed on many of these project page links.

Looks like the line-up for future shows includes a variety of different mixed media artists!
