Jumping with Pam Carriker – A Video Conversation

A couple days ago I had a great chat with Mixed Media Artist Pam Carriker. We talked about why it seems that a lot of Mixed Media Artists decided later in life to become artists, what a day in the life of Pam looks like, why she loves to combine wet and dry paint media and her thoughts on how substituting art supplies adds a little bit more of you into your work.

    I need to reach you on your email but I don’t have your email address. Could you please send it me? I still cannot log in. It does not recognize either my ID or my password. I really need help to be able to attend the Mayfair workshop. Could you possibly help me find a way to start over with my account
    and change it?

    Thank you for your help.

      Dear vicki you did not seem to have ever signed up for the class! If that is indeed the case you simply have to purchase it and sign up and create new user account when you check out . If you have purchased the class and my assumption you haven’t is wrong contact me through the contact form let me know your transaction number or order confirmation number, so I can help you from there! You are talking in one of your comments about a “Mayfair ” workshop ! I am not sure if you might be onnthe wrong website? This is Creative Jumpstart not Mayfair. Hope we can sort it out but not through comments!

If you have purchased it and have problems please email me , go to the Me section and go to contact me! Do not leave your personal information for everyone to see on the comment section. I will reply to your email during businesses hours and I am happy to help you through the process but first check if you purchased cjs! Best, nat

    I am interested in creative jump for 2017 but I am n0t sure on a couple of things. I guess it has already stated and I just heard about it just to day. How would I catch up? Do I understand correctly that I will have free access to all video?

      Vicki, yes it started but you can watch all videos either on the side until November 2017 or download ALL the videos once you are in to keep forever. (you have to download them also until November 2017. You can also still win all giveaways- if you are commenting and signing up before the end of January :) We would love to have you!

Jumping with Joe – A Video Conversation

I had the pleasure to video chat with Joe Rotella  and we talked about his creative process, how he envisions a story for each of his pieces and how he looks at different material to create certain parts of the story.

By the way ….sometimes it takes several takes to just do the intro for a video- check out how Joe and I giggle silly about me not being able to pronounce anything right

    I signed up when you first offered this thru Julie’s site. I got charged, but did not get anything else saying I was set. I may of put wrong e-mail address on the paypal. My credit card was charged.

    Can you help???

      Maude, I actually emailed you three times, and the email bounced, so I think you did indeed provide a faulty address. I am going to email you right now again to the email I see here and hope you receive it. If you see this comment and have still not received anything, can you check your spam folder, and if not there- can you contact me directly? Thank you! I got you and we get you in :)
