Jeanne's Class - Inspiring & Inspirational

May 25, 2011

Jeanne's class at NaDa Farms this past weekend was not only creatively inspiring but inspirational and uplifting as well.
  I sat there listening to her story of how she was discouraged from doing what she loved... Over the years, she pursued other paths but still wasn't where her heart was.  Now she is doing what she loves... creating beauty in her collages, purses and fashion ware.  (check out her website for more of Jeanne's creation).

 
 Jeanne not only taught us collage, texture and painting techniques, she did so much more...


she encouraged and reaffirmed that no matter how old you are you still can pursue the dreams of your heart.  Thank you, Jeanne for sharing your story, talents and inspiration.  I feel so blessed to have met you and attended your class.

I was inspired to create  this collage in the class as a gentle reminder...

What would you do if you listened to your heart?
