Regristration for the January-March 2020 session will begin in December 2019.  .

Our fall session is dedicated to all full-sized holiday painting projects.  (Ornaments will be done in our annual 12 Days of Christmas)  We will be doing Santas, reindeer, snowmen, sleighs, holiday trucks, wreaths and more!  It is jam packed with fun filled projects that the group will work on.  Work at your own pace or follow us along as we release projects.  You get full access to projects and even can watch the replays on our LIVE events.  You can participate no matter when you get time to paint.

So what exactly is TEAMWORKS?

Creative TEAMWORKS is a dedicated location on my online classroom devoted to bring TEAM members (subscribers) a whole new educational opportunity and community for painters.

This is a subscription based classroom.  Monthly and Quarterly Payment Plans available.

The monthly classroom will feature:

·         Two recorded projects per month with full tutorials.

o   Students will download full colored photos, pattern instructions and linework/drawings

o   Surface choice:  provide your own or order specific item.  Kits will be available.

o   Projects, surfaces, measurements and supply lists provided prior to class opening. 

o   Unlimited access to recorded project materials for TEAM members (Teammates).   A minimum of one year access.

·         Dedicated Private Facebook Group

o   Paint your project and take a photo. Post it to share with the group. 

o   Ask questions, get feedback and interact with other Teammates. This is a positive environment where we encourage you to share your work, ideas and questions.

o   Teammates will be encouraged and challenged to explore, experiment and have fun with their paintings.

·         Facebook Group includes LIVE chats, lessons and demos

o   LIVE materials are only available to current TEAM members.

o   LIVE videos and chats will be saved for replay viewing so current members never have to miss out.  Current members can still view, comment and participate in giveaways and other activities.

o   No Facebook Watch Parties or sharing of materials to people not in the group.

o   Materials may only be solely by the enrolled participant.  No outside sharing with groups or friends allowed. 

·         Subscriptions are automatically renewed unless you give notice of cancellation by the 15th of the prior month.  All sales are final.  Subscriptions are not refundable or transferable.  By subscribing, participants agree to the terms they have selected and of this program. 

o   ***PLEASE NOTE*** -Credit card transactions will appear as Creative Coach as that is name used to process cards. If you dispute the charge, you will still be responsible for the charge and may be charged a $15 disputed fee charge.  It takes a lot of time to go back and contact people for charges that have been legitimately made and then they forget or don’t recognize them.***

o   Monthly - $38

o   Quarterly – $90 (Save $24 over monthly membership)

 It's Laurie’s 2018 Twelve Days of Christmas

You are familiar with countdown activities where you open a "gift" each day of the countdown. Our countdown works in a similar manner. Starting December 12th large priority envelopes will be mailed with 12 sealed envelopes inside. Each envelope contains a pattern, instructions, color photo AND THE SURFACE OR KIT. There are even videos for each project. All the projects are NEW and have never been published. They are all holiday ornaments this year and we have included some additional extras to help make it even easier to create the projects.  We are again including our EXCLUSIVE STENCILS that you are going to need to do the projects.  This has been a huge hit with our participants. Best yet, our price for the program has not gone up.

Each day starting December 13th and ending December 24th. You can open the day's envelope.  NOTE: You can start whenever your package arrives.

NOTE: If your schedule does not allow you to work on this now, no problem.  You will be able to work at your own pace in the future and the videos will be there for you for a minimum of one year. That gives you plenty of time to paint. If you are not into videos, you don't have to worry; you are getting all the printed materials, photos and surfaces for each project in the envelope. No downloading or printing needed. So if you are too busy now, don't worry you can start when your schedule permits. If you are an overachiever there is nothing I can do from stopping you from ripping into the envelopes ahead of time and paint!!!!  We keep all the designs secret so people can enjoy the event on their own timeline.

It is easy to participate:

1.     Register online or give us a call to register.  The registration fee is just $75 which includes US priority shipping. The retail value is over $145. Canadian registration is $93 due to higher priority shipping costs.  Early-bird registrations qualify for a bonus 13th project, surface and video.*

2.     Starting December 7th priority envelopes will be mailed to participants with the goodies. You will be given written instructions, addresses and codes for getting additional online materials in your packets.

3.     To participate during the "live" event, open your envelopes in numerical order. One per day. If you are not participating each day, you can join in anytime during or after the live event. You will be able to open any of the days in any order after the entire live event is done. Online materials will go up in order, each morning at 8 am CST. Once they are up, they will remain available for at least one year.  You have unlimited access.

So join us for this holiday event that will be unprecedented! Packages will ship in the order they are received, so order early and get your materials first.

Remember you even get the surfaces and exclusive stencils

12 projects...12 surfaces... 12 patterns...12 videos…EXCLUSIVE stencils,,.

There are new lessons to learn and techniques to try.  All new designs...oh my! 

You WANT MORE…As most of you know, I like to beat records.  I am still extremely competitive. Last year we broke records and everyone benefited and I want to do it again.  I will need your help by letting all your painting friends know about our event and encourage them to join you by ordering their kit too. It is a win win for all of us.

This year we are giving bonus items for meeting goals. 

Our first goal is to register by December 2nd and you get a bonus 13th project, video and surface FREE.  


Our second goal is to exceed the number of participants that we had last year and I will provide a 14th downloadable pattern and video for you to enjoy online.  So share my posts and notify your friends, painting groups and post on your Facebook pages.  Let people know how much you have enjoyed past countdowns and share past projects.  Let's get the word out and I will reward you all for it. So it is important to participate and spread the word.  Orders will be filled in the order they are received so enroll early. Watch our Facebook posts for updates.   Check back to see our progress and how quickly we meet our goals.  UPDATE:  We are still working towards this goal.  

Hope you join us, it is going to be fun...
