I’m super excited! I have been very busy preparing a new Joyfuelled-adventure dedicated to activating our JOY through lots of 15-minute bursts of creative expressive heART projects! Drumroll….
Registration is now open for JOYFUEL HEARTS–
a MONTH-LONG ePlayshop dedicated to
JOY through creative art play!
- Beginning Friday August 23rd, 2019 you will receive at least one email a day for 28 days with yummy, creative, colorful content to inspire you for at least 15 minutes creating everyday, for JOY! Emails will include creativity videos, writing prompts, audio recordings, Joyfuel Gems of Wisdom, and joyfood for thought–all to inspire creative muse and ultimately your JOY.
- In addition to once-a-day email LOVE we will have once a week LIVE Zoom calls where we will meet and get to know each other by sharing stories, live creativity projects and joy!
- We also will have a private Facebook Joyfuel Circle!
Gifting (aka cost, money, moolah, $$$$)
I’m offering this in gift economy which means participants can gift back to me, if and as they choose. The bottom line is JOY!
In determining our projects I was very cognizant to use as few materials as possible, to UPCYCLE or MAKE something from something else, and to provide multiple options so hopefully you won’t need to purchase very many things. (If you live in the Raleigh/Wake Forest, North Carolina area and want to borrow some of my things, you are welcome to my stuff… my studio is YOUR studio!)
I will send our participants the full list soon, but here are some things you can start gathering to put in your heART box to get ready for the adventure!
Things in BOLD are upcycled materials.

(Ooooooweeeeeee! I like seeing all that BOLD text…. and I LOVE using what we have instead of buying NEW!)
After reading this list I hope you are curious about WHAT we will be making!!!! I’m going to remain a little secretive as I think some of the greatest JOY might come from surprises, but here are a few little hints 🙂
♥ mini journals ♥ prayer flags ♥ stamps ♥ cards ♥ heART journal ♥ stencils ♥ & MORE ♥
This online ePlayshop is inspired by my real-life playshops and I am going to do my best to make this as personal and enJOYable as if we were sharing the same paint tray!
dedicated to JOY, (especially yours) xoxo
