True Free Spirit Retirement sale!

I have decided to retire True Free Spirit online class along with Paint Your Story, Neat Stuff, and Frolic. I think she has had a great run and feel it's just time. I am offering this class, with hours of content and 14 projects for $30.

***NOTE about the class***
AS of January 1st, 2018 I will no longer offer support (commenting on work, etc) I certainly will answer any questions about supplies or help if you email me. Notifications will be turned off so I won't be receiving any emails from the classroom. I have over 30 classes that I still offer support on so please know that support will not be offered after the first of the year. thanks for your patience and understanding!! happy creating!
Up until January, I'll make comments and offer help with your art direction and offer suggestions if you need them.

You can also sign up in my etsy shop if that is easier.

love this pic of my Granny and my Dad.  it was a gorgeous day, but still hot....!
