FREE inspiring ARTbiography class!


MY favourite website, Artellaland, has a new teleclass coming up. I love their teleclasses, and if you have the sense that you're not fully living the life that you were meant to live, and are interested in learning some practical, hands-on tools to make it happen then so will you! Live Your ARTobiography: Using ARTsignments to Discover the Story You Are Meant to Live. is a free, live teleclass (you can dial in from anywhere!) taking place on Thursday, September 8, and it's presented by Marney Makridakis from ArtellaLand.com, the creator of the ARTbundance approach to self-awareness through creativity, as well as other special guests, including Brian Andreas of Storypeople fame. I really like Marney's approach and I think you would get a lot out of this class...and best of all, there's no cost.

"Live Your ARTobiography" takes place on Thursday, September 8, 2011. In this fun, free class, you will:

  • Engage in transformative tools to learn how to transition from living your "oughtabiography" to your "artobiography", so you can do more of what you love, more of the time.
  • Participate in hands-on ARTsignments™ - fun exercises to help unveil new insights about the story you are meant to live!
  • Hear candid personal stories from Storypeople's Brian Andreas, and ACT Graduates, with the best examples for bringing the power of story to life.
  • All participants will also receive a dynamic follow-up workbook including inspiring and effective ARTsignments™ that harness the ARTbundance™ Principles to uncover even more new sources and opportunities for tapping into the story you are meant to live.

I think you’ll love it! You can get all the info here!

Squeee


I ordered some DROPs alpaca wool and it arrived today!! Now I just need to finish the cardigan I'm working on and then I'm on my way to knitting a hat and some slippers from alpaca. I'm so over-excited!!

Creative update photo's!
This is a piece from LaDeDa designs called Mares and Oats. I'm working on it as a present for my Mum. It is a song her and my Nan used to sing that drove me up the wall when I was a kid.


This is a tea-cosy (as you can see) that I knitted with some lovely yarn I bought from a shop in Great Missenden. I can't remember what the shop or the yarn are called though! The pattern is from knitty.com.
