Featured Blogger: Donney Downey

Donna Downey

There are 3 blogs that stand strong in my mind, that inspired me to find my creative side that I had lost over the years. I remember reading these blogs...all were young women taking their passion and making a career of it

 I am going to feature them in the next few weeks.

I would like to start with Donna Downey...her blog is entitled "Simply Me".  I met Donna a week ago for the first time. I attended three classes taught by her. She is talented beyond words,  down to earth, and a great teacher. 

My favorite thing on her blog is the Inspiration Wednesday. There she paints a page in her journal every week. So inspiring! Here is a recent example.

I have been following her since she was a scrapbooker. Bought a couple of her books on crafting with photos. Seems like I have watched her children grow up, watch Donna grow as an worldwide known artist, and watched her & her adorable husband form a strong business team.

Be sure to follow Donna on her blog and every Wednesday for Inspiration Wednesday videos. The great thing about her online workshops is that there is not time limit and you can continue to use this forever at your own pace.

She also does Collage Mondays. Lots going on at her blog, website, online store, and studio in North Carolina. Check it out! And keep an eye on her class schedule to see when she'll be in your area. If you never taken one of her classes in person, you really should treat yourself to as many as you can. You won't be sorry.

I cannot say enough good things about Donna.  She is a wonderful teacher, sharing her skills with everyone she encounters.  Now, please take some time and go check out her blog.

I love it when artists have a themed day where they video how their art takes form! Where abouts in North Carolina is Donna?
