Yes, it’s been absolutely ages since I last wrote here in this space – I’ve been super occupied by selling my house and moving to a completely new area and an everything-except-the-external-walls renovation project!

The dust hasn’t quite settled, but it looks like we’ll be almost ready for the cold, dark days ahead by the time of the autumn equinox!

Anyways, as I’ve been working on this renovation project, I’ve also been birthing some fresh, new projects and am particularly excited to make some announcements about those very soon – be sure to sign up for newsletter updates to hear about those as they land.

In the meantime, I’m glad to share some great news with you. I am teaching on Life Book 2018 next year! It’s been so long since I participated in anything outside of my own internal world – it’s a real challenge to head straight into this much-loved and prolific program.

Keep reading to find out more about Life Book 2018 – and how you can a win a spot right here and now!

If you aren’t already familiar with it, “Life Book, a celebration and honouring of YOU” is a year-long mixed media art class organised by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.

Tam is joined by 23 incredible art teachers who are all gearing up to share mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with you. 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, participants create several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year they will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)! It’s a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!

If you join, you will also be introduced to yoga, aromatherapy, dance and other wellness exercises to help support your personal development journey more holistically.

You can find out a lot more about this wildly popular course (it has been joined by over 16500+ people in the past!) by following this link.

I’m already working on ideas for my class – and of course, it will be mandala-based!
