  1. I cannot wait to learn from such great artists and from everyone unique style and perspective. I am.looking for your newsletter to sign up and I have shared your Facebook post. Thank unso.much for this opportunity. I have heard wonderful things about LifeBook! (Ampersand Crafts on fb) :)

  2. See, this is what I love about LIFEBOOK….. you get to meet and discover really amazing artist/instructors/teachers/inspirations!!!! I'm looking forward to seeing your lesson. I'm not artistic by nature, and have never been able to draw. Learning to draw faces is has been my #1 goal since starting my ARTastic journey a few years ago when I became permantly disabled. Lifebook was the very 1st online class I ever took back in 2013 and have never missed a year since. I've always joined in on these blog hops in hopes to win a spot one year. I'm hoping this is my year. I'd love to win a spot. Thanks for giving us the chance to win one. ((((HUGS))))

  4. Signed up for your newsletter and shared the post on FB. I want to join Life Book again next year, because it's FUN! After having a rough year (that included major surgery for myself and a family member) I need some more fun and joyfulness (which LB brings in abundance).

  5. Hi Kirstin,
    SO glad to see you're in Life Book and you totally deserve it. I've loved your artwork, when we were in Tracey's class together I so looked forward to seeing your newest art puns. Gorgeous work, I'd love to learn from you and all the others. A year of lessons could only help keep me on the artistic path I'm endeavoring to create. Congrats and I cross my fingers I get lucky and get a spot!

  7. Hi, thank you for the chance to win a place on Lifebook 2016. I have participated in Lifebook this year though I have been a very quiet member.

    Ok, on to LB 2016. First congrats for being chosen as a guest teacher. I've been doing LB this year and am finding it to be a really rewarding and inspirational part in my life, and not just the artsy side either. Winning a seat for next year would mean the world to me - and would enable me to continue with the lessons I look forward to(like a kid at Christmas!) every Monday. Thanks for this chance to win a seat!

  12. I don't know what to write because I am sure we are all equally deserving and excited about doing Life Book 2016 but if I have to say something I would say that I find the kindness of the course just as wonderful as the art. They join together to make a perfect package.I would love to do Life Book 2016. Thanks Wendy

  71. Amy Nutzell - amnutz@bellsouth.net - this is my second year taking Lifebook. I have learned so much and grown as an artist. I have been exposured to artists and techniques and modalities I did not know existed. I have made friends and been encouraged by others within the LB community. It's great to be able to download and keep the lessons then when you are months later working on a piece and struggling with something you can go back and just have a LB marathon and something seems to "click" and you go back to your problems and you know how to work through it! Very important when you have chemo, Lupus and stroke brain! The cost of LB is affordable and you get fabulous value however we are going thru a big tsuamni of life and winning a scholarship would be a blessing. I'm sure others are facing hardships too. We all talk about how hard cancer and incurable illnesses are emotionally but people never address how devastating they are financially. Hubby has stage 4 cancer- currently cancer free- and I have a laundry list of issues that forced me to " medically retire". Disabled sounds so useless. Besides I have my art! Anyway- I'd like to win - good luck to everyone- I will go without groceries to pay for my LB. it's that good and important to me.

  111. I've been hearing so much about Life Book and it sounds very exciting! The work I've seen from the participating artists so far is incredible and very inspiring. I'm the type who NEEDS a prompt, or I end up just sitting there cleaning my studio, at loose ends. I love the idea of a like-minded community of artists "all on the same page"!

  116. I’m a Lifebook virgin ;-), although I bought Tam’s 2012 version and I’m just finishing my last lessons of that package and I’m having so much more fun of it than I thought before!
    Since 3.5 years I have a chronic disease (Lyme disease) and I’m finally starting to have more concentration and energy throughout the day. That’s why I finally can paint again and that gives a day so much more fun! That is why I would love to win a spot in Lifebook 2016 :-)

  119. No long explanation - I need a plan and to carve out time for myself. I need art, I need creating. I dont seem to make time. I hope that if I have a plan I can set aside time to make things, learn more and relax. I would be honored to learn from this amazing list of artists. Life is short, I need to start playing!

  144. Winning a spot on Lifebook would give me the opportunity to grow as an artist, give me the confidence to say, "I am an artist". Looking at the list of teachers, I admire many of them and their work. Being able to have the opportunity to see how they create and learn their techniques will stretch and further the limited skills I have now. I am sure their lesson will push me out of my comfort zone, make me frustrated but then glad I tried!
