Here’s what past participants/Jumpers had to say about Creative Jumpstart!

Karen D’Angelo, USA – November 2014:

“I strongly recommend that you explore Nathalie Kalbach’s Creative Jump Start series – it’s a very wonderful way to begin the new year!

Nathalie’s leadership to produce a month of fantastic artist technique videos each year is evidence of excellent programming. There is thorough background information and technique for every level of expertise, great advice for newcomers getting started, and motivation to continue long after the series is over.

Every artist in the CJS series finds a way to cleverly add their creative expertise directly to my workspace with fun and ideas to improve our shared world.

If you’re thinking of joining the next series you won’t be disappointed!”

Valdulac, France – February 2014:

“Thank you so much Nathalie and other artists too for this Creative jumpstart. I enjoyed it and loved discovering new videos and inspiring techniques every day. I managed to enter six giveaways with six differents projects. It was an exciting january.

So, hope to see you next year and I’m sure these videos will continue to inspire me to create other projects during 2014.

Hugs from France, Valdulac”

Joe-Ellen, USA – January 2014:

“I absolutely LOVED CJS! A friend discovered and participated in CJS 2013. She loved it so much (and I loved being a recipient of her cards inspired by CJS!), she bought CJS 2014 as a Christmas gift for herself and the rest of us (3) who gather a few times a year for girl’s “create” weekends. The 4 of us have been watching and discussing all month.

So sad it’s over. It’s like finishing a really, really good book and having the “blues” after reading the last page.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to ALL who made this happen!”

Joan von Metzinger, New Zealand – September 2014:

“I discovered CJS in 2013 and have been following Nathalie’s blog ever since. I have learnt and grown so much in my art… I have been introduced to new and wonderful artist in her field which has I in turn have been able to link up with but only through Nathalie’s guidance. Nathalie’s inspiration has shown me that being an amateur artist is just the first step in the right direction to were I want to be… Thank you!”

Marie-Anne, Belgium – December 2013:

“I enjoy this every year and i’m happy to be included this year.”

    Creative Jump Start? What? End of year – buying Christmas… just couldn’t decide to do this or not…. but NOW I can tell you…. WOW….so glad I registered early….best money I ever spent on myself! What a MAGNIFICENT way to start the New Year. Just so many wonderful things happening in this workshop. The line up of artist mentors is fantastic and their presentations are all well planned and professional…even FUN! It blows my mind that Nathalie Kalbach could give us “peons” a whole MONTH of dedication for such a small fee. That’s dedication to what you love… don’t you think? Even if you didn’t start at the beginning – catch up now…it’s easy to do. And… even if it’s later in the year… and you see this workshop – do it. Every video is different. Every video teaches you a completely new idea. The creativity is spectacular. You can do one a day in Feb. or July… just as well as one a day in Jan!! In fact, I plan to do it again mid-year – just to remember things!!! Of course, I get to rewatch for free any time I want now!!! There are techniques for everyone – from mixed media painters like me to scrapbooking and journaling. This was my first year but I will be back next year. FOR SURE. Thanks to all who have given their time and knowledge for CJS2015. I don’t know any of you – I’m a newbie – but… I do know you have encouraged me to be all that I can be as an artist. Pretty incredible journey.
