I am sooo jazzed, excited and honoured to be a part of Tamara Laporte’s Life Book 2015!  I met Tam several years ago online and became a member of her Ning forum.  I loved Tam’s artistry but even more so her deep authentic and caring nature.  I resonated with her back then and still do today. So I’m super duper happy that Tam asked me to be one of the teachers this year. There’s an incredible line up of instructors for you to learn from! Woo hoo! This is such an amazing opportunity……………and the goodness goes on for a whole year!

    I have only just discovered LifeBook through a friend, and I’m so hoping I can participate in 2015. I have been exploring teacher websites and taking Tam’s free Art Heart Healing and I have already gained so much. Thank you for the opportunity to win a free seat in the class. As a recent retiree, I now have the time but not as much money, so winning a spot would be perfect. Again, thank you for the opportunity.

    I would be so excited to participate as one of the giveaway spots for Life Book 2015. I have a girl friend who partipcated in one of the previous years and her artwork from it is awe- inspiring. She also talked about how it fueled her soul creativily and helped her feel centred in her life. This year has brought many changes and challenges. I have tried to work through it by investing in myself with as many tutorials and classes as I can. However, being on a budget and having a growing family ( 2 1/2 years and 7 months) sometimes it is not feasible to enrol in the classes that might give you the biggest challenges, best rewards, and contemplative soul searching. I hope to be chosen as a candidate for one of the sponsored spots as it would greatly impact my day to day life and growth in a positive way. Thank you so much for the opportunity and for putting together what looks to be a fantastic class.

    All the best,

    Peace. Love, art,

    omgosh pleeeaseeee ..Art in any form, is as aspect of the soul…no matter the skill level or medium, whether its paint, pencil, camera, or junk and glue…creating anything is speaking from the soul and putting it out into the world somehow. It’s a piece of you, from the concept to the realization. You’ve made something no person has ever in the history of ever made before!

    Since the tragic death of my 22 y.o. nephew six months ago, I have truly felt “angel inspired” to create and share mixed media collage paintings with the world. I’ve only been working in this medium for these six months but, in such a brief time, so many people have resonated with my work and found comfort, joy and courage through the messages in my paintings. I want to continue this work, grow in skills and expand what I am now doing. I’m flying by the seat of my pants and enjoying the incredible ride and feel READY to learn some new skills. And I know and TRUST that my nephew is guiding me in so many ways. He led me to you…and here I am!! Xo

We all have something to work through in life and these lessons and the many wonderful people that you meet along the way all come together to be those helping hands we all need at one time or another. I can’t begin to explain what its done for me so far <3 Lots of love & blessings to anyone who wins this amazing opportunity 🙂 You will be the better for it!

    Hi Violette!
    This is the first time I have seen your art or visited your blog I think. I loved seeing your style and energy level, WOW! SO UPBEAT AND LIVELY AND FUNNY AND SWEET!!!! I don’t have any tats nor do I dye my hair any funky colors at least not on purpose anyhow. I am eccentric though more so in my personhood than how I appear physically , I think I wear baige so much because my personality is red and pink and orange or something like that! I think it’s a little bit green and blue too, and I do love nature and gardening. I so adore your garden and magic house.
    I did the Life Book last year but not this year. This year I wanted to try to focus on my own art work. I did some charities and taught a bit, am kind of in a wicked funk these past two weeks. Not really sure why, could be college costs with two kids in college, or the stress of my ten yr older coming home yelling at me everyday. School stresses him out. Maybe it’s because they changed the brand of my medication, I kid you not! My chest has been hurting and I can’t seem to tolerate people at all.
    I loved doing LIFE BOOK because I could do it from home. I learned loads of cool new techniques met sweet artists and loved Tam and the others teachers. She’s amazing and so kind I agree with you though I only know her from the class never ,mt in person. I sold a couple of pieces I made in the class. I often did my work on canvas but not always. I wish I could sell more!!!!! I love making art it’s my passion weather I sell it or just collect it all over my house!!!!(Which I do)
    Winning the class would be so fantastic, but I pray whoever is blessed is he/she who needs it most! Hugs, and thanks for sharing you, Sanna

    Well, I do not deserve to win this beautiful gift over any of the other wonderful artist that are trying to win.
    I would LOVE to win. Art has become a method of freeing myself from physical pain. I have a weird disease called R.S.D. Under Doctors orders, I began to explore my love for art. They told me, Take as many classes as you can. And boy were they right. Don’t know how it all works, but painting, drawing, playing with colors lowers my chronic Pain level. I would love to learn from you lovely teachers so that I can give back to others who are in such physical pain. Art heals…. and art pushes pain away. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to be considered for this awesome gift! Thanks Donna ;))

    I would be so grateful to win a spot in Lifebook 2015. Before signing up for Lifebook 2014, my art supplies hadn’t seen the light of day for 14 years. The encouragement provided by Tam and all this year’s instructors has helped me conquer self judgements and open up to creating again. I would be incredibly grateful for the opportunity to continue to grow creatively and learn from you and all the other amazing instructors listed to teach next year.

    Hello! I have so many reasons to want to win a spot for LB2015! I guess like most, I am a huge Art lover – and a huge fan of yours… and so many others teaching this year!
    But what I really am looking forward to is experiencing how art can heal – i have gone through many things in the last few years – and huge changes in my life recently – I am starting off fresh… a new chapter… and truly believe LB2015 would help me soar into a better tomorrow! <3

I’ve just been looking through the work I’ve done this year (my first) on Life Book, and realise that although not everything has resonated with me when I’ve done it, doing the lessons with each teacher has added experience with different palettes, medium, and points of view. I don’t know if I’ve managed to find my own style yet, but the classes definitely have added texture to my life, and I am looking forward to continuing developing my abilities and style next year!

    I would love to win a spot in LIFE BOOK 2015 because there’s so much more that I want to learn in regards to my artwork & there’s so many great minds participating in this event. I know it would be such a wonderful opportunity. I feel like there’s so many things that I haven’t discovered yet in the art world & so many talents that I have that I’m not even aware of & this would be the perfect event to help me unlock some of those hidden talents.

    I am new to art journaling, just started this past August. I am loving it. It has been very therapeutic for me. I have always enjoyed different crafts; quilting, scrapbooking, crocheting, etc. But this is different, being able to be more creative, feeling inspired and motivated. I am a psychiatric social worker and I have been looking for something that will help me care for myself—I think I have found it. I would love to win a spot in Life Book 2015. I’m hoping for a great 2015! Thank you! 😀

I am a disabled housebound lady on a low income so it is out of my reach !

    I’d consider myself soooper lucky if I win one of the spots in this awesome program! I love the name too! Need to learn loads… want to learn painting techniques.. watercolor, acrylic and mixed media! I am from an IT background and never had the chance to learn the skills… It would be great if I could put atleast 50% of my thoughts and plans on paper/canvas!

    I am currently on a work break and it would be awesome to win a spot on this… that would be ideal use of my time and it would be a great gift even as I miss my monthly income!

    I sure hope to win a spot in Life book. Then I would have something for me & just me! To explain…I packed up my studio the beginning of July, then we went on vacation, then home to pack & move. Everything has taken priority to my art! My studio is the last room to be finished & always just gets a couple of hours here there to sit on a backseat to all else that needs done. No $$ for anything new for the place & definitely no new art supplies! To top this off my computer just went out for repairs so no writing either! You can well imagine that after 2 months of this I am ready for a change! I need a little pampering which this nice prize would provide! Thanks

    Violette –

    I am a licensed clinical social worker and registered play therapist. I often use art in my work and for my own self care. I have been inspired by the art journal prompts that you share online. I have turned more to expressive arts over the past year as I’ve sought more alternatives in my own healing journey after my husband suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and teenage daughter then began to experience severe depression.

    It would be a huge gift to me to have the opportunity to participate in LB2015 where I would have the prompts each week to continue to express myself. I would be honored to win a spot!

    I’d like to win because I’ve just come through a huge emotional trauma and would like to use the exercises to work through it all. I just completed my testimony in court yesterday, and the detective and victim services support worker called me last night to tell me that the judge had already–sooner than ever is normal–gave her verdict. I won, and my ex who spent 5 yrs terrorizing and assaulting me, who then went on to victimize others, is guilty.

    I would love to win a spot because I have a deep passion for mixed media art, and want to give back to my community by creating space for others to heal themselves through the process of making art. Because I am a lover and and creator of poetry and writing letters, creative journaling brings together my love for art and the written word. My goal is to develop new skills that I can meld into a sharing my love for art therapy and creative self expression.

    I would love to enter to win a spot in Lifebook 2015, as I am planning on getting my degree in Expressive Art Therapy and I think this will be a wonderful stepping stone in the meantime. Exploring any kind of art and how it relates to therapy/counseling or helping others is invaluable. I currently do ‘doll play’ with my client right now and create various doll videos through my You Tube channel (Shosy G) -some of which are meant to encourage girls & women (like my “Street Girls” video ^_^). Thank you – for this wonderful opportunity – take care ^_^.

    I would love to have the.opportunity to learn and from and grow with you as well as the other amazing teachers scheduled for Lifebook 2015. I have faced many crossroads lately that have me desperate for renewal. In short, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which causes bedridden days; therefore, I had to resign from my job in early 2013. Las, this past June my husband of 16 years decided he no longer wished to remain married. I am looking and focusing on the blessings in my life, which are numerous and include my beautiful daughters. Cecielia and Megan. Being chosen would be an amazing way to start the new year and my new life. You are a blessing to me yourself and am happy fir you to be picked as a teacher.

    Hi Violette! Thanks for this opportunity! Life Book! So many teachers and so many techniques and a whole year to play with all these wonderful folks… who wouldn’t want to participate. Yippee!!! For me, its the motivation to keep painting, drawing, collaging, & experimenting with new products and ways to use the ones I already have. I grow my base of artist friends by connecting with others who have the same passion for creating through online workshops like these. My Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds are mostly artists, so I have a huge community to keep me visually and mentally motivated. Good luck everyone and let’s have fun!

I would be lost without the weekly lessons that have shown me that actually all you need is a good teacher, the right supplies and the willingness to learn to make art. If only we had this in my school days! Thanks for the opportunity to win 🙂

    I would love to win a seat in Life Book 2015. I have experienced some traumatic changes in my life this year. My husband and my sister both passed away in the beginning of this year. Now I am pretty much a full time caretaker for my mother who is recovering from a rare form of cancer called NETS. I’m trying to adjust to these changes and take stock of the blessings that I do have in my life. I’ve been having difficulty finding purpose and direction in my life now. My husband and I had been making plans together for 25 years; now I have to accept things and make new plans. I think this would be such a great class for some personal introspection that I could certainly use at this time.

    Would love to learn from such a fantastic array of teachers; and have these lessons to look forward to every week. Thank you for the chance to win a seat in class.

    I would like to win because I am very wrapped up in the practical side of life and my soul is not happy. I miss making art and I think that having the accountability of a class would help me feel less like I am “wasting time” on art. I know it’s not a waste, but it’s hard for my right-brained self to justify time not spent on increasing income above poverty level. And yet, my soul longs for more time for creativity.

    I recently completed Kelly Rae Roberts class and it opened up a whole new world to me that I hadn’t even known existed. I am enjoying channeling my creative energy and just making art to amuse me. I have social anxiety issues so I appreciate that so many wonderful artists have come together to create a space where I can find community, feel comfortable, learn, inspire and be inspired, and engage with creative people of all levels without being overwhelmed. I would appreciate winning this class as it would allow me to spend the tuition money on much needed supplies.
