Three Takes on Creativity

Lisa designs and creates jewelry.
Today, Lisa, Sandie and Martha each presented their personal creative processes - each a little different. Thanks to Joan for running the show in Jenny's absence. We did miss you, Jenny. Can't wait to hear of your world travels.

Lisa's Presentation:

Lisa loves to sew for others, especially her daughters. She is also a designer of jewelry. Check out some of her gorgeous pieces. Great inspiration here, Lisa!
