Life Book 2016 Blog Hop & Give Away!

Congratulations to Jennifer Van Pelt, the winner of Life Book 2016. 
Thank you so much for all the heart felt entries. I hope to see you all in Life Book 2016.

I am so thrilled to be teaching on Life Book 2016. The lineup of teachers is 'pinch me' amazing and I have a sense this year's instruction is going to be transformational.
I am ready, are you?
Well..........drumroll please..........I get to give away one (1) space to this amazing year long course. I mean how cool would that be to win a spot!?!?
Keep reading if you want to find out more about Life Book 2016 and if you want 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! 
MB Shaw Journal Spread
“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 (including moi) who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! 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!
Truly, I am so rocked by this concept that I am going to work along because I mean who wouldn't want to be part of this??
You can find out why this course has been so popular (joined by over 8700 people in the past!) by clicking HERE.
I am pretty excited about the class I am developing and will share tons of my journal and painting techniques such as those seen here.
Close up drips MB Shaw
Registration opens on October 5th 2015 and the class begins on January 1st 2016. 
So if you want to start the year with a fabulous creative BANG and spend 2016 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!

  37. Hello Mary Beth! We met in the lift at Art is You in Petaluma and I took your amazing class with alcohol inks It's lovely to see that you will be part of the wonderful line up on Lifebook 2016. I'd love to win a place on Lifebook 2016 because basically it feels like a life line sometimes and I love Tamara Laporte, she fills up my British cup - I love her art and her humour and hearing her British voice sometimes makes me cry when I feel homesick living here in Cali. I joined Lifebook this year and it's such a phenomenal group of people and the teachers are outstanding, to win a free place would be huge and I'd be forever grateful, thanks for the chance to win, keep doing what you do Stencil Girl, lots of love xoxo

You have inspired me to branch out in many different direction. The class at Mason Ohio was awesome and I took home more avenues of art. Of course Stencil Girl stencils make me so happy and are quite additive! I would be so excited to have an opportunity to learn from you again! I do love your work!! Thanks for the chance!!

  113. Oh my goodness! I would love to win a spot for Lifebook 2016! I have always loved creativity but never felt I had any talent. My older brother has amazing talent with drawing, however I could never draw anything recognizable. Even my stick people don't look right! I love all different mediums and have spent a few years trying everything I could come across, hoping I would find my very own special niche. I now realize at least two things. One, I cannot compare my art to anyone else's art (which is still a struggle to actually put that in place), and two, mixed media is my thing because I get use any yummy supply I want. I am much the newbie and I know that I will learn so much from all of you amazing artists! Thanks for the chance to win a spot! potter (underscore) helen (dot) abbie (at) yahoo (dot com).

  117. Subscribed to your (StencilGirl) newsletter. I’m attending these draws, because they are the only way (with scolarships of course) for Life Book to be possible for me, since every cent available goes towards my studies to become an OT. Yet I’d really enjoy in taking part of this year long course.

  121. No way!!! Welcome, Stencil Girl!!! I have heard of you, Stencil Girl, and am super excited you will be teaching in LB2016- so cool! What an awesome opportunity to experience your work as well as 22 other amazing artists ♥ It would mean the world if you chose me! A place in LB is so much more than art lessons for me. It's an amazing source for safe healing, confidence building, personal inner growth, skill learning, and so so much more that that! The exposures to other styles and techniques are just the thing you need to grow your inner artist. ♥ I would be honored 1/2 if you selected me!!!! :) Crossing my phalanges!!!! CHEERS!

  123. I would love to win this fantastic opportunity to participate in Life Book! So excited you are a teacher too!! I have been "collecting" art supplies and I need to put them to good use, which I'm sure Life Book lessons will do :) I had a friend who did it this past year, and I loved, loved seeing her progress and finished pieces.

  126. I love mixed media but have been so afraid of trying very much because I really have no idea where to begin. Your artwork is lovely and if I could win a seat at Life Book it would be so helpfully and inspiring. Life gets discouraging sometimes and this looks like it would be a great pick me up.

  132. I just having finished two pieces I used some of your stencils on would love to be in another class where you are teaching. I have loved both the life book classes take in the past and would love to do another. Funds will be tight next year as the plan is to go to Uganda to start an art program for the orphans. So pick me! Hugs, Sanna.

  140. I hope to win a spot in Life Book 2016 because I cannot imagine not having Life Book in my life! 2015 was my first year, not only have I learned how to be a better artist, but also to have more confidence and even show myself self love. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  142. Thank you for this chance for a spot on LIFE BOOK 2016. I would love to take this course as there are so many fantastically talented gals who will be teaching their one-of-a-kind talent to the rest of us. The sky is the limit as to what they will be teaching us fledgling artists who would almost die to be able to paint like the professionals.

  148. I was a member of Lifebook 2012 and I LOVED it! I am still a novice artist and it gave me so much information on techniques, inspiration, and guidance. It helped mold me. Since then the stars haven't lined up to allow me to be able to sign up again, but I really hope to be a part of it in 2016!

  155. Ahhh I'd love to do LifeBook again this year. I did it the first year and enjoyed it but struggled to fit it in as I was working full time then. Then I had to give up work (various reasons, but mainly dealing with & looking after FIL) and since then funds haven't allowed much for fun stuffs! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  156. How much fun you'll be teaching at Life Book 2016! I'm enjoying every bit of 2015, it really has been quite the journey. I would love to join in with 2016, but with buying our first house and thinking of starting our own family, money is truly tight. So what a wonderful gift a free spot would be for me. So keeping my fingers crossed tightly ;) My email is debbie.stip(at)gmail (dot com), XxDebbie

  157. I would love to win a spot in LifeBook 2016 to learn from this wonderful lineup of instructors and grow in my journey as a newer stay at home mom. I have recently transitioned from owning my own business (a rubber stamp/scrapbook store) to a fulltime mom of our 2 year old son Riley who has Cystic Fibrosis. I love being his medical advocate and champion and he is my hero I think the LifeBook experience would be a wonderful way to help me document the transformation that is happening in our lives. Unfortunately with me not working, funds aren't readily available for extras like this anymore, so to win it would be a huge blessing! Thanks for the opportunity!

  161. I cannot wait to join Life book 2016! The group of teachers are all so incredibly inspiring and it would be such a wonderful gift to win. I've taken one of Tam's free classes and her work and way of connecting art and healing has opened a whole new world of art for me. The fact that we get that aspect AND offerings from so many amazing artists seems like the perfect class! Thank you for offering us a chance at a spot!
