Family Art Day Goes Public!

Family Art Day Goes Public!

Several years ago, I started gathering my creative family members for a day of art. It started with a simple desire to see my family more – talking, sharing time together, connecting while creating something fun. I think we would all agree, those goals have been far-exceeded! And much has happened in our family since we started in 2014…

In April 2014, we played with Paste Paper, then made cards to send to my nephew, who had just enlisted in the Air Force and was away at boot camp.


In July 2014, we made Fairy Terrariums before sending my daughter and her partner off to live in Vermont. 🙁


In Feb 2015, we had a baby on the way (!!) and made the sweetest little Storybook Heart Mobile for her nursery.


In Sep 2015, we welcomed new baby, Alaura, to her first art day, along with her grand-family from Florida for a day of Marbling and making Alaura Brag Books.


In May 2016, we had fun with water and Tombow markers for a little Doodled Accordion book before sending my niece off to live with her brother in Alabama.


These family gatherings have allowed us to keep in touch, grow closer and watch the babies grow. They’ve also allowed me, personally, to spread my wings – many of our art days have been trial runs for classes I went on to teach and I think they’ve really helped me polish my teaching style by giving me a chance to work with a wide range of ages, interests and abilities.

Every time I’ve posted about a Family Art Day, I’ve received tons of notes & messages from friends wishing they could join up! I’ve been thinking for awhile now about making a public offering of some sort and I’m happy to announce that it’s finally time!!  If you’ve every noticed one of my Family Art Day posts on Instagram or Facebook and wished you could join the family, welcome home!!

My philosophy for this offering is simply to create a space for women to relax, create something fun and connect with other creative souls. I’m offering two options:

  • One January Day @ Home workshops will be in my home in North Oklahoma City – all supplies are provided, along with lunch, dessert, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • One January Day @ Host Home workshops will be held at the location of your choice – all supplies are provided, but the host will be responsible for food and beverages.

Prices will vary depending on the project and whether it’s at my home or yours. These will generally be full days and cover a wide range of creative projects, from Marbling to Dream Catching to Doodling and more! And class sizes will be limited to 6 students, so you’ll have lots of personal attention.

For my kickoff, I’ll be hosting a day of Marbling Magic at my home from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, March 25, 2017.  If you are interested, please click here to jump to my One January @ Home page. If you think you’d like to host a workshop at YOUR location, you’ll also find more information and a link for One January Day @ Host Home! Hope to see you real soon – your place or mine!!

Help me spread the word!! Share the @ Home link ( on social media, tell your creative friends, post on your church or office bulletin board. If someone tells me you referred them, I’ll give you $10 off your next @ Home class!
