You will need your username or email address and your password to log into your account, purchase products and/or access online workshops.
If you forgot your password, you can retrieve it by clicking on Lost Password/Username. (Note that if you do not get the notification of the password, the password email is probably either in spam or you misspelled your email address when you signed up. That means you won’t get any emails from me because they are all heading to the wrong address. Please contact me in this case so I can change your email address manually.)
ONLINE WORKSHOP ACCESS
I purchased a workshop but cannot access the workshops. When I click on the workshop I get redirected to the store!
That’s simple: you need to be logged in. If you see an “Add To Cart” button in the purchased workshops in the Online Workshops and if at the top of the page it reads “Login,” you are probably not logged in. Log in and go back to the Online Workshops and you will see the Purchase Date under each Workshop you bought. Scroll down to the bottom and expand the Lesson List and enter the classroom by clicking on the first or any of the lessons you want to start with.
How do I log in?
Easy: just click on the “log in” link in the top right or the login icon on the left side. Enter your username and password. If you lost the password, you can ask to have it resent to the email address you entered when you registered.
When you are already logged in, the login link changes to “Account.” Access your account to change settings or to log out.
I did not receive an order confirmation for my workshop order.
Please check your spam folder – it might have landed there. Even if you do not find it, you can log in and see your order history. Just click “Orders” from your account page. The workshop you signed up for should be listed there. If you in general seem to not receive emails from my side, make sure to check your email address and that it is properly spelled in your account information.
Note:If you opted out of receiving emails from me or unsubscribed, you will no longer receive important notifications from me regarding workshops you purchase, workshop instructions, and video download deadlines for workshops like Creative JumpStart.
CREATIVE JUMPSTART (CJS)
I signed up for CJS 2021, logged in and am in the classroom, but I cannot see any content other than the welcome page.
If you signed up for Creative JumpStart 2021, please note that the workshop starts on January 1, 2021. New content goes up daily in January 2021, so be sure to check back regularly.
I have purchased a previous CJS workshop (2012-2020) but I cannot find it anymore?
Access to CJS is limited to mid November of the year it was published. That means CJS for the years 2012-2020 are no longer available. CJS 2021 is available to access until November 15, 2021.
I have purchased several workshops (other than Creative Jumpstart) and I am logged in, but I cannot access all of them.
Please contact me with your information and the names of the workshops you purchased. I will check to see what the issue is, so that you may access your classes.
I have purchased Creative Jumpstart but did not receive email confirmation of my purchase or email information on how to access the workshop.
If you opted out of receiving emails from me or unsubscribed, you will no longer receive important email notifications from me regarding Creative JumpStart, including workshop instructions and video download deadlines.

I have a coupon code. How do I use it?
After adding the workshop to your cart add the coupon code in the field “apply coupon.” The discount will be visible after you applied the coupon, and you can proceed to checkout. Multiple discounts cannot be combined!

No. To participate, each student needs permission to access workshops with their own user name and login. This permission is granted during checkout when the individual student purchases a workshop. You will not be able to transfer access to workshops from your account to someone else’s.
If you want to give a workshop as a present, try the gift certificate in the online shop at n*Studio.
