The Dream Angels offers many services to help people live their dreams. To be able to live our dreams we need to be happy, healthy, empowered and inspired and I help people achieve that in their lives through naturopathic consulting, herbal healing classes, framed photographic prints, iridology consulting, nature-based classes for children, handmade knitted unicorns, other handmade items and more.
The theme that runs though all of my work is that is is all motivated by healing, teaching and being creative. When I provide naturopathic consulting to a client I seek to help them, but also to learn about creative ways in which they can take control and improve their lives. The knitted unicorns that I create are made from all natural materials and contain healing herbs. The photographs I have for sale are all inspired by healing traditions around the world and evoke a sense of calm, balance, healing or awareness. They are ideal to hang in an office, doctor's office, a restaurant, cafe or alternative care center.
I've accomplished much in the areas I work in and have traveled the world, but I chose to settle in Des Moines, Iowa four years ago because it provides the perfect combinations of small town comfort and International connections, natural living and city convenience, and a place to call home as well as an ideal central place to travel from. These combinations are important to me. As a native Iowan who grew up in Marshalltown and Ames, I have always loved the people and the natural greenery of Iowa. However, as an International traveler for the past 20 years, I need to be able to accept speaking invitations in California, Texas, the East Cost and overseas.
I've been taking photos as a professional since 1989. My work as been published internationally and one photo I took was even used as the background in the opening scene of the Hollywood movie, Stargate. I have a full list of exhibits at publications I have worked for on my website. I always have a few framed photos on display at the Lagniappe in Valley Junction. You may have seen my work in May 2008 at Barnes and Noble. In the area of natural healing I have been consulting, teaching and lecturing since 1999. I run a number of popular online classes and do online as well as office consulting. In the area of teaching I have trained as a Waldorf and a Montessori early childhood teacher and I now provide nature-based programs from my home for after-school and early-day-out enrichment. Through my online shop and office I also sell handmade items that have been created by me and sometimes my children. Right now I am offering handmade knitted unicorns and my son is offering homemade threading beads made from natural oak wood.
1. Free drop-off for any items (including knitted unicorns) you order through my website to Windsor Heights, West Des Moines, & the Urbandale areas and free shipping for orders totalling $10.00 or more. So even if you want to shop local but it is more convenient online - you can still save on postage and delivery just as if you came into a shop.
2. Join a class - get one free. For any class you join, your spouse, friend or family member can also join for free. OR you can choose a second class for no additional fee.
3. Two-for-one consulting: For first time clients only you can bring in a family member or friend and you only pay for ONE consultation. Consulting includes your choice of iridology, reflexology, herbal and naturopathic consulting, or a combination of all of the above. Two-for-one clients must have back-to-back appointments or appointments at the same time (such as in the case of a parent and child).
4. Free consulting for photographic prints. You can visit my site at www.imagenations.com (this connects you to the photopage at www.thedreamangels.com) and browse the photography that is available there. There are also 3000 possible frame and mat combinations available. I can help you choose which photo, mat and frame would be right for your home or office.
