Getting to Know Jen Starr & Viva Decor Videos with Jen Starr

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to Rhea Weigand for another fun weekend of Copic coloring.   We can't wait for her to come back in the spring!  Join me Monday evening from 6-8 PM for Bible Journaling.  It's free so come see what it is all about.

Get ready for a fun weekend this week with Demo Day on Saturday and Jen Starr visiting on Sunday.  I posted one of her Viva Decor videos below so you can see some of the fun stuff she teaches.  

 Getting to Know Jen Starr

Viva Decor Videos with Jen Starr

As many of you know, I've been working closely with Viva Decor over the past few years as their Senior Educator. Last month, I had an awesome little adventure when they brought me over to their location in Germany for a week of sharing, creating and meeting some of the amazingly talented and wonderful people that work there. While I was there, we filmed 18 videos focusing on the MIXED media aspects of so many of their mediums, since my favorite thing about them is how well their products look and work together.
