You’re Invited!

I’m offering a free online makerspace workshop for adults from June 21 to July 17. The Naturally Creative Workshop is 20 days of small steps (thoughts and actions), Monday through Friday, four weeks in a row. Find your natural creativity again by making what you love day after day after day.
