A Different Option

A few days ago I shared how I mended the knee of my jeans.  For some time it had been "under consideration" but I was hesitant as I don't generally do hand sewing.

Then an offer came to me - I could take a month of classes on CreativeBug for only one dollar.  If I decided to continue, I could pay $4.95 monthly for however long I wished to take classes.  For that one dollar to start, I also get a credit to spend on a class that I can keep forever in my CreativeBug library.  As far as I can tell, you could watch every class on CreativeBug during a month if time permits.  But you can only choose one to keep in your library, for that credit.  So far I have watched a LOT of classes.

 I am happy that I can offer the same deal to you.  If you are interested, just click on the banner ad below.

Now, about those jeans,  one of the first classes I watched was on the physics of hand sewing in a class by Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin.  I was fascinated by her calm but precise manner of teaching exactly how the clothing is made in her studio.  (and if you don't know, those clothes are very expensive.)  There are six other classes that she teaches too.
There are also classes on Art Journaling, Watercolor Painting, Quilting, Knitting, Crochet and more.

Another class that I watched and found particularly inspiring is called Intuitive Painting.  It is a three part class (thus it requires three credits to add the full class to your library - but there is also the option to purchase a class outright.)  As an artist who paints in a non-objective manner much of the time,  this class spoke to my heart.  I am sure I will watch it again.
But for there are also painting classes on landscapes and florals and even painting a portrait of your pet.

I love the fact that I can watch portions of the class and decide if I want to take the entire class, or decide that "Okay, this isn't for me."

I hope some of you give CreativeBug a try.  And if you do, please click through from the link on this post as it provides me with a small stipend and allows me to keep trying new classes.
