When we reached 10,000 members on my creative network I wanted to do something really big to celebrate! Once we reached 10,000 members I started asking some of my friends to celebrate with me and they have offered up so many beautiful giveaway products that I am so excited to share. Before I could even do this post we are now almost at 11,000 members that are connecting and taking online classes on jeanneoliver.ning.com! Can you believe this?! This growth has occurred in less than 1 ½ years and we hope you will love this celebration post and all we are offering.

I wanted to do something that thanked all of you for making it such a huge success and celebrated a big milestone for us as a small business. I am not great at celebrating and seem to just move on to the next task and that is something that Kelly and I are really working on this year. We want to stop and celebrate what the Lord is doing with our business, family and friendships.

We have so much good stuff here that I can’t wait to share!

Kelly and I wish we could just have a huge BBQ and invite you all over to thank you for making the site such a success. We started this site as a way to share my thoughts about using your gifts and to make art together. It has become so much more than that! The site has now become a place to take online classes about art AND home. It has evolved to include so many other artists, mediums and techniques. This site has become a place to watch free videos and to be inspired by the free series Creativity Takes Courage! Just typing all of this brings tears to my eyes because all of this is so much more than we had dreamed.

I always tell everyone that Kelly is my dream maker. He has always stood beside me and been my biggest cheerleader. He supports my crazy ideas and believes I can do anything and that my ideas won’t fail. As much as I boast that Kelly is my dream maker the true dream maker is the Lord. Every dream I have was planted by him.

What I love about this community is that every person that takes one of our courses helps to support that dream and the dream of other artists. I watch you all encourage each other through the courses and lift each other up. Your words and actions have become the dream makers to others too. Don’t ever take that lightly. That is good stuff!

I hope you will continue to love the site and the courses we offer. We have so many good courses coming to you this year and hope they are just what you have been wanting to grow your own gifts and to connect with a more creative life.

Thank you!. Truly!
