Hello! This is my third-to-last post as a member of the inaugural Design Team over at Artistcellar.com. I have had such a great time working with Lisa and Michael at Artistcellar and all the other Design Team Members: Lori W., Lori B., Tammy, Rita, and Patti. But most of all, I have truly treasured getting to share fun projects and inspiration with you – my blog readers! – and reading all your lovely comments!

For this post, I’d like to recap the Artistcellar projects I’ve shared with you. First I’d like to share all the projects that use stencils – because, let’s face it! We ♥ stencils! And I’d like to finish up with a giveaway!

My future: mixed media, community, & coaching

As I move forward, I will be continuing to blog about my mixed media art and jewelry designs at Gaal Creative. I am also working on a new community for artists and creatives who are spiritual but not religious, called Creative Spirit U.

Additionally, I am a coach, helping my clients find more fulfillment, more balance and harmony, and to enjoy this life journey to its fullest! If you’re interested in learning more about coaching, please sign up for my coaching newsletter here.
