Winner of LIFE BOOK 2015 Giveaway!


Holy Mackerole!  We had over 432 entries to this contest giveaway (i had to choose a name from two blogposts as i originally had made a mistake)!  I’ve been having contest giveaways for many years now and this is definitely the most entries I have EVER received!

I read each and every entry – i was so moved by many of your comments. Many of you shared your hopes and dreams and about why you so needed this class to feed your souls.  I truly was blown away and many times even moved to tears.  Each and every one of you deserves a spot however each teacher is allowed to give only one spot away! Just to let you know how incredibly generous Tamara Laporte is……..she gave away 10 spots! WOW!

The winner of my giveaway is Carol Mc!  Here’s what Carol had to say:

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.

Congratulations Carol!  

If you know me at all you know that i have difficulty choosing one winner or even three for that matter. When my kids were little and I had backyard “art contests” or “bug finding contests” for the neighbour kids everyone always won a prize. I’d create catergories just so that the child could feel like a winner.  Unfortunately I can’t do that today but I do hope that if you really want a spot in LIFE BOOK 2015 and you can’t afford it that you mention it to family members or friends who might be willing to gift it to you for a Christmas or birthday present. It’s definitely going to be well worth it – an entire year of soul-filled, artsy goodness. So good for your soul! For more information on all of the teachers and the course please click here.

Thank you soooo much to all of you for taking the time to enter and for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it!

Just to let you know I am also going to give away one of my Teens Dream Journal DVD’s to a woman who teaches Tweens art…….I just have to search and find her name again!

Love, Violette xo

    Violette, it cannot be easy to choose a winner out of so many applicants. I think that you chose wisely and I wish her well on her life path. It isn’t easy to experience so many life changes in such a short period of time.

    I’m glad you won this Carol. I know that being a caregiver is a really tough job. I also did full time care for my mother and that period of time has changed my life. I am so glad to have taken that time with her. I am not the best caregiver but we had those special moments that will last forever.

    Having this class to look forward too will be a blessing for both you and your mom. As I too will share my journey with my mother as well.

    Congrats Carol…I also wanted to say that you should read a book called Normal doesn’t live here anymore by Barb Owens

    Its very helpful for caretakers. I really hope taking lifebook helps you and that if you do read the book it helps you too.
