Life Book 2015! Blog Hop & Giveaways . . . .

"Contained exhilaration is not nearly as exciting as its release. . . . accept challenge! 
What excitement do you have to share with the world?"
- Lorii Myers

It's here! It's here! The day has finally come when I can share the secret I've been teasing you about for a while now. I'm absolutely over-the-moon, tickled pink, ecstatic to announce my participation in Life Book 2015! That's right, I'm honored to report that I will be among the 25 teachers that will share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU in a year-long online course that begins January 1st, 2015.

Not familiar with Life Book? Oh darlin', you want to know about this!

Life Book is themed around around self-development and healing; you'll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year you will bind into a gorgeous journal (a Life Book!) that you'll be able to keep and treasure the rest of your life.

How do you get the lessons? Via weekly videos, PDF's and engaging bonus activities. As a matter of fact, you'll get new materials every Monday for the entire year when you sign up. It will look something like this:

◙ 10 In depth Mixed Media Art Lessons by our lovely host Tam of Willowing Arts.
◙ 22 In depth Mixed Media Art Lessons by Spectacular Guest Teachers (see below who the 2015 guest teachers are)
◙ 20 (Smaller) Bonus Activities like: extra PDF prompts & step by steps/ artist interviews/ ATC swaps/ give aways/ audio meditations/ writing prompts etc by Tam & Guest Teachers

Fabulous, right?! And to celebrate the new event & teacher lineup, Tam is offering several (as in 28!) FREE SPACES on the year-long course!

Wanna know more? The blog hop begins today starting with our lovely host Tam. Pop over there
for your chance to win one of 3 spaces she is giving away. Then be sure to follow the blog hop if you want more chances to win a spot as each teacher can give away 1 space on Life Book 2015!

Here is the blog hop schedule. Be sure to play along daily and then come back here on September 21st for your chance to win a FREE SPACE from me! Here we go . . . .
