Life Book 2018 Blog Hop & Give Away!


Hello everyone!

I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2018 next year!

I am SO thrilled and honored to be apart of this year’s amazing line-up and create some soulful art with all of you! Woohoo! 😀


And even MORE exciting news is that I can give away 1 space on this amazing year-long art course! Keep reading to find out more about Life Book 2018 and to find out how you can win a spot! 🙂


First let me tell you a bit more about Life Book in case you haven’t heard about it yet! “Life Book, a celebration and honoring of YOU” is a year-long mixed media art class organized by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 23 incredible art teachers who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! PLUS this year, Life Book is going to be bigger and better by including another 12 fantastic artists and wellness guides who will focus on additional personal development practices and other art modalities, like sculpting, photography & writing!
Themed 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 glorious journal (a Life Book)! You will have a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life! You will
also be introduced to yoga, aromatherapy, dance and angel energy and other wellness exercises to help support your personal development journey more holistically and imagine the fun we will have getting introduced to and acquainted with some of the other wonderful art forms out there! You can find out a lot more about this wildly popular course (it has been joined by over 16500+ people in the past!) by clicking


I haven’t fully developed my class idea yet, but I have plenty ideas already and am super excited to be sharing my story and journey of healing through art with you! I love to express my voice and feelings through art, much like you can see in these paintings:


Registration opens on September 12th 2017 and the class begins on January 1st 2018.
So if you want to start the year with a fabulous creative BANG and spend 2018 with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, learning more about art and how to be kinder and more loving towards yourself, be sure to join once registration opens! 🙂 Keep this page bookmarked so that you can sign up the moment it goes on sale! 🙂

Katrina I would be so honoured to win a spot in Life Book 2018 as a tribute to my granddaughter Shayna who passed away in 2014 at the age of 20 from a rare disease called HLH which attacked her immune system.

    I have to say that 2017 is a big year for me. I am 34 year old but it feels like only this year I am learning to be myself, to live my life, to feel happiness without any special reason, no matter what happens, and to be thankful for every experience I meet daily. Life book took a big part in this growth of mine!

  33. I’ve been drooling over the Lifebook class and would LOVE to win a spot in the class. I really feel that this is the direction I need to go after undergoing a complete life change after diagnosis of a chronic illness that required intense treatment and rehabilitation for the past 7 years. I didn’t expect to come out of the traumatic experience with much mental or physical faculty, but looks like the doctors were wrong! I’m very much alive and ready to find a new purpose for my life and so far, art and writing has helped me see this. I know I need the guidance of such fantastic instructors who have so much to teach me about accepting my past, present and future by creating and using art.

  34. I would be a part of this community LB18, because i would like to incorporate creativity into my daily life with small acts of imaginative exploration, sparks of inspiration, playfulness. And i would be so honered to be teach by this awesome group of amazing artist teachers.
    Thank you for this opportunity to win a spot.
    I love your art.
    Love Alenka

  35. I would love to win so I can continue to learn new ways to be creative! Thanks for the opportunity!

  36. i am going through several life transitions now and would love to be among a group of creative, caring women!

  37. Dear Katrina, This course seems to be fantastic. It would be a great adventure to follow through 2018. Thank you for the possubility to win a spot.
