Janice Everett shares thoughts on inspiration

If there is some chance you don’t
know Janice, please allow me to introduce her and share some of what she has to
say about inspiration!! Janice Everett
is the wonderful, hard working person behind the group Artisans Create Together
and JLynnJewels Circle. She is planning
to do a mini class this summer on inspiration through photography. If you have
not seen what she does with photography, I encourage you to join her at JLynnJewelsCircle and find out. It’s quite incredible!!
Before I share what Janice has to say
I always like to start off with the random winner for the “inspiration in everyday” monthly challenge. A big
thank you to everyone who played along this past month, it is so nice to see, and share in the things that inspire others! The winner this month is Ann Schroeder. I
just love that Ann found inspiration from a store window display!! Here is photo of what inspired her and the
lovely necklace she made from that inspiration.  
You can read more about what Ann has to say about her inspiration here. Congratulations Ann!! 
Please send me your address and this little
bird will be flying over to you! 
At the
end of this post I will show you the prize for June (that prize can fly too;)
If you are not already in the “inspiration in everyday” group, you
can join here🙂
Now for Janice, here are s some of her thoughts on inspiration and upcoming related events:
Inspiration is the process of being
mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something
creative.  If you know me – then you know that inspiration
plays a huge role in not only my chosen creative career – but also, living life
in general.  It was also the platform of my former career as a
Creative Marketing & Educational Leader with JoAnn’s.   Although
I left those years behind to pursue my own creative interests and re-invent a
new business for me in the jewelry and art world, in the early 2000 – much of
what I did lives on in the retail world, and much of what I developed and
implemented in the marketing sense, lives on in me, my business, and my two
Groups – Artisans Create Together and JLynnJewels Circle.
Inspiration can be magical – an
unexplained gift for those that receive it. But inspiration can also be a
learned skill.   The more you exercise this phenomenon – the better
you become at noticing the little things, that can inspire you in your
creativity, and growth as an Artisan.   As
Artisans, I do feel we all have a responsibility to future generations to carry
on the many art forms, mediums, styles, techniques and skills, that have been
handed down over the centuries. This is why I choose to inspire others – by
utilizing my own business and past experiences, as an educational resource and
financial supporter of paying it forward, through my two Groups.
How?  Through
a lot of Creative Challenges, Tutorials, and Mini-Workshops that are designed
to get the creative juices flowing…and to encourage others to become confident
in their own abilities and thoughts in the creative process, while instilling
an Artisan community that supports, shares, and encourages each other.
In addition to the many Challenges
that take place every month in the Artisans Create Together Group (Color/Photo
Inspiration, Component Inspiration and the new C5 Creative Challenges which involve being inspired by
a multitude of themes and actions – Emotions, Causes, Patterns/Shapes,
Places).  I also will be doing more involved Summer Workshops in the
JLynnJewels Circle Group, including a new Mini-Class on Inspiration through
Photography.  Similar to what I shared a few weeks ago, where I
actually took macro photos of every day items from around my house and created
abstract works of Digital Artwork that I’ll be utilizing for my own ART
Tiles…participants for this mini-course, will be taken through a variety of
exercises in taking both landscape and macro photos for the purpose of
inspiration for creative projects, and more.
