Two people will receive the October Kit from Creative Cards Homeschool.

Creative Cards Homeschool is a monthly card kit club offering the latest trends in card making. What sets our kits apart from the rest is that all the hard work is done for you. How long do you spend looking at a stack of supplies wondering what to do with them, where to put this or how to use that? Creative Cards solves that… the ideas are already thought out for you (not that you can’t make it your own) and everything comes cut to size, glittered, punched, stamped, inked, etc. All you have to do is look at the picture and glue it together. Oh, and then of course ENJOY! But don’t think for a moment that these kits aren’t packed full of interesting new products, the latest papers, and plenty of ideas to keep the experienced crafter interested.

The goal for Creative Cards is to inspire creativity. We do that by offering reasonably priced kits and a friendly environment. Realize the joy of giving something handmade and give our kits a try.

The brand new April kit is now ready!

One person will receive a spot in Creative Thursday's upcoming e-course April In Paris

What are you waiting for? Be it. Live it. Do it.

Inspired by our own journey to realize a long time dream.

This e-course is for anyone who has been putting off what they've been wanting to do, waiting for a better time, waiting for the right time. How do you know the right time isn't now?

Are you wanting to start your career doing work that you love, maybe a creative one? Take a cooking class, learn a new language, plant a garden, travel to that far away destination, or one close by, make a move to a new home or a new city, begin a relationship, start a family, get a dog, {or a cat!}. Or maybe you don't even know what it is that you want?

This course will guide you on how to find out what your desires are, and how to make them real.

Sean and I believe that real success is living a creatively fulfilling life. We share a passion for teaching, creativity, individuality and living by our own rules. We loved teaching our first e-course "Together" so we've decided to team up again, while realizing our own dream of living in Paris.

Listen to Marisa and Sean talk about this e-course here.

You're Invited

What: to turn just one of your desires from when into NOW

When: beginning Tuesday, April 20 2010, for 4 weeks

Where: wherever you are and Paris, France {because that's where we'll be!}

Learn more about this course and Creative Thursday on Marisa's blog.

This is a limited enrollment course that will be personalized for the group attending. Attendees progress at their own pace. It will be a combination of podcasts and videos posted weekly on a private website where participants can communicate with us, and each other.

Marisa Haedike is an Artist, Educator and founder of Creative Thursday. Marisa's art work sells all over the globe and this past year she also launched the e-course "In the Fish Bowl. Life as an Artist Online." After years of performing including acting roles that appear on television and film, Sean Hogan teaches Improvisation at the Groundlings Theater and Private Sketch Writing classes while pursuing a career in Screenwriting. We collaborated earlier this year to teach our first e-course "Together:: 2 perspectives :: on how to live a creatively fulfilling life."
