I am available to come and teach a several session Workshop at an art or scrapbooking supply store, a ministry retreat or as an extracurricular class for Christian Academies. If you would be interested in me teaching in your area, please send me a message using the form below. I would love to have that opportunity.

I love learning new things...and I bet you do too!


Tutorials. I create tutorials because I love sharing what I have learned while working in my own Bible and Journals. They tend to be on whatever I am working on right now - or sharing a particular technique that people have been curious about after seeing something that I have done. These are free and you can access them here or on my YouTube Channel. If you want to be informed as soon as I put a new tutorial up, please become a subscriber. I have more than 200 tutorial videos available...and while most of them focus on mixed media and cardmaking, many of the techniques that I share will work in your Bible as well...they may even inspire you to try some new things too! These are totally free.


Workshops. I have created an Illuminated Journaling Workshop Basics series to help provide new Journalers with good basic information to make "starting" much easier and to help journalers discover their preferred style of creative response to God's Word. I will also be adding technique workshops to help you add new skills to your journaling toolbox.  Workshops are a combination of teaching and demonstration...and are what I would share if I were doing a live classroom event.


I will be adding more advanced technique workshops as well...so let me know if you have something that you are interested in exploring


They are self-paced and will be available for as long as this website is active. You can take your time, come back and rewatch any workshops that you have registered for as many times as you like. If you want to be the first to hear about new classes and workshops, sign up for my newsletter. I also teach on-line mixed media and cardmaking classes, so you may want to check out the YouCan! Classroom here as well.  Workshops are priced individually.

The Illuminated Journaling Single Workshops:


Christ is Coming: An Advent Journaling Series Advent is a season observed as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of Christ's birth. "Adventus" is a Latin word meaning "coming" - but what I love about it is that this word isn't just about Christmas - it also anticipates Christ's ultimate return. Isn't that cool? As we seek to calm our hearts during this hectic season, we will turn to His Word and journal our way through Advent.


The "Christ Is Coming: Advent Journaling Series" is a 25 day dialog that incorporates devotionals, journaling prompts, video tutorials and printable line art to help you navigate this busy time of year by keeping our hearts and minds focused on Christ and His incredible gift to us.


Your registration will include a daily email from me with a brief devotional/journaling prompt and links to the private Christ Is Coming Resource Center.  There you will find printable line art (Advent One and Dones), examples of my own journaling along with video tutorials.


This Series Began December 1, 2016, but you can still join in!


Attitude of Gratitude Workshop: This is the first workshop in a new series called A Seasonal Study. Are you ready to dig deeper into the Word? Learn new techniques? Apply your study to your Bible, Art Journal or Mixed Media Canvas? Then you will definitely want to join me for my Attitude of Gratitude Workshop.


This will be a comprehensive workshop -- that goes beyond techniques and allows me to share my heart with you as we study God's Word together. While we should always have an attitude of gratitude - the fall season provides us with an opportunity to refresh our commitment to being thankful and challenges us to count our blessings.


This workshop is a multi-session study - with each session including a focused devotional,

Bible Study materials, a techniques tutorial and a start to finish project.

Working With Line Art Workshop: This is the next workshop in the Illuminated Journaling Skills series. I often hear people say, "I love your drawings, but I don't have a creative bone in my body...or I can't draw." And I say, "then you are seriously underestimating your skeleton!" *smile* Seriously, you don't have to be an accomplished artist to add meaningful art into your Journaling Bible. In this workshop, I will show you how I have taught myself to draw...by starting with line art and reference photos. I'll show you how to use images you find with a Google search, personal photos, stamps or magazines and size them to fit on your Bible pages. I will also cover the basics of using watercolors and colored pencil to make the drawing a reflection of your own creativity.

The Basics Workshop: If you are new to Illuminated Journaling, this is a good place to start. This workshop will cover the different styles that you will see others using and may be interested in trying for yourself. I will also show you some of the basic supplies that you may want to use and will cover the best pens, inks, pencils, and paints to use when creating journal entries in your Bible. I am including a short video that covers the Bibles that are available and what other journaling options people use that do not want to do their journaling in a Bible. This workshop will provide you a great foundation and prepare you for the Technique Workshops.
