Good News + a Sneak Peek at 2015 Creative Classes!

The good news is: March is here! Spring is coming! We had the flu, but now we're well again!

We're especially happy about the coming of spring here in Berlin because it means the days are getting longer and we have more sunlight after many long, dark winter months.

I've been busy making new collages to finish up my 100 Days of Collage project, and I'm also gathering new ideas and materials for my upcoming 30 Days of Collage and Creative Spring online classes.

My daughter Lucy - here dressed up as a pirate girl - has been fascinated by my ongoing collage project and she wanted to make her own collage journal too.

She layered a combination of two-dimensional and three-dimensional elements in her first collage

and she put it all together to create a well-composed, colorful, and fresh abstract design.

I look forward to more creative collaboration with my daughters in 30 Days of Collage and my brand new Creative Courage Kids Summer Art Camp class coming up in August!

Of course we'd love for you to join us :)

Lately, we've also been enjoying sunny, blue skies

fresh cranberry scones for breakfast (my recipe here)

vintage maps (the map above shows the area where I first lived in Berlin back in 1996!)

old-fashioned quotes on cooks and cooking

and soft spring colors, textures, and poems.

What have you been enjoying lately?


This week I'll be opening registration for our next sessions of 30 Days of Collage and Creative Spring.

Both classes will be packed with fun, step-by-step tutorials and guest interviews to inspire you with lots of ideas for your own creative projects.

Check out this sneak peek at my 2015 creative course schedule here.

Course registration details + Early Bird and Alumni Discounts are coming up later this week.

Greetings from Berlin,
