The Art of Sisterhood Giveaway

Hi there friends!

I am so excited to announce that I am going to be a part of THE ART OF SISTERHOOD – 2018 Team! This will be my second year working with these incredible women and I couldn’t be more delighted and honored!

TODAY, as a special treat, I get to giveaway ONE FREE SPOT to this incredible online class!



THE ART OF SISTERHOOD is a course that focuses on celebrating women and creativity! TAOS was created in the hopes of bringing women together, from ALL walks of life, on a more intimate level where we can share our own personal stories in the hopes that we will spread strength, hope, positivity and light into the world. Sometimes in the midst of all of the stresses that life brings us, we forget that there is room for ALL of us at the table! If you are looking for a space to connect, a safe place for space will be held for you, a community free of judgment, and a home where you can connect with other women and build a light so bright that the world will have to see it, then TAOS is for you!

This year, our theme is RISE ABOVE – SHINE YOUR LIGHT! We will focus on spreading our light in the hopes that others will stand up and shine theirs too! The creative guides in this class will share their own personal stories, and a mixed media project. These projects will encourage you to think about your own life experiences, and give you ideas on how you can brighten up your own life, and the lives of others. We will not only be creating, but also you will have weekly challenges that you can participate in, to bring more positivity and light to your own personal community!

Click here to find out more about THE ART OF SISTERHOOD – 2018. This course is not open for registration yet! However, you can read more about this course and bookmark this page so that on February 19th, you can come back and register!

What is even better is that if you register by March 5th, you will get a discount on the price! YES!!! Awesome, right!?

I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing team of teachers and guess what else?! I get to give away ONE FREE SPOT in this course to one of you!




I will be announcing the WINNER end of day on February 18th (PST) Good luck to you all! 

Good luck to you all! Have a beautiful rest of the week!

Tam’s Book Launch Blog Hop & Give Away

Hello gorgeous creatives!

tamholdingbook2I have some wonderful & exciting news! Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts has written a book! It’s called ‘Create Your Life Book: Mixed-Media Art Projects for Expanding Creativity and Encouraging Personal Growth – AND I got to be a part of it! Can you say deeply honored?! Um….yeah!!! PLUS, I get to give away a copy!

Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet! “Celebrate and honor your creative potential with Create Your Life Book!” Based on much-loved mixed-media artist Tamara Laporte’s popular, multi-year series of online classes, Create Your Life Book offers mixed-media drawing and painting projects that can raise your awareness of and help you work through personal challenges and other obstacles to creating art and achieving self-fulfilment.

Each themed chapter presents 4 or 5 two-part projects: The first part of each project explores a common issue that hampers creativity and/or positive self-worth, and includes a worksheet or list of questions to be answered; the second part is a step-by-step mixed-media art project that provides a way for artists at all skill levels to contemplate and work through that issue.

Also included are projects contributed by some of Tamara’s Life Book guest teachers–Roxanne Coble, Andrea Gomoll, Alena Hennessy, Mystele Kirkeeng, Effy Wild and well…ME! So awesome to be alongside these fantastic Mixed Media Artists!


Along the way, Tamara shares inspirational photos and uplifting and encouraging affirmations. The final chapter presents a simple binding method for creating a keepsake book of your Life Book projects.





This book is truly a delight – full of wonder and creative inspiration! My project involves creating a mixed media photo collage where we create Angel Inspired self-portraits around the theme of self love and protection!
