“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 10 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 now design interactive mini album scrapbooks, make hand bound journals and the love of my life (my husband and family being the exceptions of course) is creating mixed media art.

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.
