“Aspire to Inspire before you Expire”                                               Eugene Bell Jr.

This is one of my favorite quotes. I have been inspired by many through the years and am grateful that I have been able to encourage others to explore their artistic talents.

Hi, I’m Jane Jones. I have been crafting since my early twenties; crochet, jewelry, etc.  I started paper crafting about 20 years ago when I was invited by friends to join their Artist Trading Card group. My first thought was, “I could never do that”, but I took a deep breath and jumped in head first and never turned back.  I was hooked.  A true fanatic.  I have designed interactive mini album scrapbooks, greeting cards, make hand bound journals and the love of my life (my husband and family being the exceptions of course) is creating mixed media art, whether in my multitude of art journals or on a canvas or other substrate. My latest passion is crafting stained glass creations.

I was ecstatic, and terrified, when I was asked to teach my first class.  Really?  Me?  Wow!  Teaching is now a passion of mine.  I love sharing what I have learned and watching someone discover the joy of making art – in whatever form it takes.

Thank you for visiting with me and I hope you enjoy what I have to share.
