Mixed Media Artist, writer & poet
Exploring art & entrepreneurship through through the lens of faith
Hello & Welcome to My Blog
My name is Andrea Walford and I am a mixed media artist, writer, poet & an online business mentor for creatives.
I have spent the last 12 years teaching thousands of aspiring artists and creatives around the world how to discover and develop their creative skills. For those who have been ready – I have helped them turn their creative passion into a profitable online business.
I’m a born again Christian who has been happily married for 21 years to my amazing husband Todd, and I’m a mom to 5 beautiful kids ages 9 to 19. My 96 year old grandpa (“papa”) also lives with us.
On my blog I share my art, poetry & writing (including many process videos & tutorials), and I also offer insight on growing a creative online business.
If You Love to Create
You’ll my online classes
Stampin’ Up! Card Classes
My Stampin’ Up! card making classes are designed to help you break through your creative barriers, learn innovative ways to use your products and help you make the most of the supplies you have. Since 2009 I have created several thousand cards and taught thousands of aspiring card-makers worldwide how easy it is to create beautiful hand-made cards.
Mixed Media Classes
Art is the language of the soul. We ARE creative beings and it is through our creative pursuits that we connect to ourselves and to the universe on a deeper level. In my mixed media and art journaling classes I teach you how to create meaningful artwork that speaks your heart. In each class you’ll learn how to use and make the most of your mixed media supplies and how to incorporate these materials in your artwork through a variety of different techniques.

Are you a card maker, an artist or some other type of creative who longs to share your experience with the world? Would you like to learn how you can turn your creative passion into an online business that will support the life you dream of? If yes, then I can help you! Since 2009 I have developed 3 separate 6 figure creative online businesses. I currently work one on one with a select number of creatives and will soon be offering creative business-building online courses

What Others Are Saying
just wanted to say that I love crafting and I watch a LOT of instructional videos on the internet. Yours are the easiest to follow, the most accurate and the most organized of all of the ones I’ve seen. You teach in a clear fashion and your instructions and hints are right on. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, I know those videos must be time-consuming to make but I, for one, really, really appreciate them.Annette M.
Your classes are so descriptive and easy to follow and I have learned so many techniques from you that I probably would have never really known. I am guessing your brain is creating all the time because you keep the ideas coming and they are all awesome.Ginger S.
Everything you offer, has been, and I know will continue to be, a blessing to my business. As a minister’s wife, a school teacher, a caregiver for my 90 year old father, along with wife, mother, and grandmother, my life doesn’t give me much time so your classes and ideas are priceless to me. Thank you so much for everything you do!!!!!Jaycene M.
