Introducing myself

Thanks for stopping by…my name is Jeanne…

Learning, adapting and creating are a big part of my life.  It is easy for me to spend hours alone working on my own ideas.  However, there is something so exciting about taking the risk of sharing my work with others.  Creating this blog is my first personal journey of experimenting openly with others.  It feeling like jumping into a big flow instead of waiting on the banks of the river.

Last year I took a 12-week program entitled The Artist Way.  From that course I learned how so many of us are longing to be creative and struggle in various ways.  We think we are unique in our struggle.   The struggle is a great tool if we remember that its a part of the learning process.  My background is in education, having been a teacher for several decades.  It was a grand time, especially when I taught in the Gifted and Talented Program.  So now my student is me.

This first blog beginning in 2015 is a way for me to share my photography and writing.  This blog is my “mess” area where I can try different things and see what works.  In addition to this, I am jumping in to a new world of technology in which I get to “struggle” as I learn about everything on this dashboard.  My goal is to then create a new blog with my knowledge so that it is more of a dedicated photography gallery.

Reading others’ blogs is incredibly inspiring to me.   It is wonderful reading about all the creative endeavors in which people are involved.  I also love that all ages are able to come together and share.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Joni! In using the Hemmingway design, I am not able to reshape the title square, which is located on top of the photo. Any ideas on how to make that title square smaller or move it? Maybe that’s the part of having a free site.

  1. Hi Jeanne! I look forward to following your journey – sharing your struggle is very brave 🙂 An artist’s mess is always full of fun and interesting things.

    You might not be able to move your title square, but I would look around for a way to change the opacity of the background – you might be able to at least see some of the photo through it.

    1. I will check out Marilyn’s blog! Your story of the journey to the top of the mountain and being stuck there only to find the young people still awes me. Yesterday I spent quite a lot of time learning about tweaking my blog. While I have a long way to go, the progress feels great.-Jeanne
