...."You're gifted!"

Here's something fun and different and perfect for the last minute!  There are so many choices for so many things, but what do you think of giving the gift of playful creativity this holiday season??!  I've recently had a slew of requests from my community of thoughtful friends and family members asking to "gift a class" for the holidays.  We also have some folks signed up to take the 2015 Artfully Inspired Life class (and other classes) together as groups to share their art journals and support each other all year.  What fun!

Here's how it works:
1) PURCHASE ANY CLASS HERE ON MY SITE and in the Paypal "notes to seller" box, let me know the name and email of the person you would like to be "gifted".  You can let them know or i will send them (and CC you) the "gifted" email.  So simple!  Choose from TEN awesome classes!
CLASS PREVIEWS and REGISTRATION HERE

2) PURCHASE A SPECIFIC DOLLAR AMOUNT FOR CLASSES:  In this personalized service, your recipient will choose what classes they would like to take with a class credit.  Send me an email: jzsharpe@yahoo.com and indicate the amount you would like to "gift" along with the name and email of the recipient.  You will receive and invoice and your "gifted friend" will receive a gift email and the class access of their choice.  So many possibilities!!

It's personal and catered to your ideas and wishes!  My classes are reasonably priced ($35-$59), are self paced with unlimited open access.  No rush to finish, take your time to enjoy each juicy lesson on your own time and schedule.  


Looking forward to sharing the creative love with you and your friends.  
And don't forget to sign up and treat YOURSELF
 to some awesome art to soothe your soul this winter.  
Let me know if you have any questions.  
Huggs and Happy Holidays!
