Resources


Here you will find important resources for the classes I teach. I encourage you to post/reply or comment some of your own resources on this page and of course be sure to archive them on your very own blog, a free virtual library of  your favorite things. Share and they will follow, then follow them to build your community of shared experiences. Each resource is under the appropriate class title or media tool. Peruse my other classes and email me your questions.
