  1. Oh, for the love of art! If only I could turn one page in Life Book!

  2. Would absolutely love to win a class with you, Lynn! Your energy is so infectious and I love your “break all the rules” approach! My art dream is to continue to use art in all forms in my work as an Intuitive Counsellor and Consultant as a means of self discovery ~ remembering who we are, trusting our intuition and coming from that place at all times in all that we do is what I teach… and art is one of the best ways to get in touch with ourselves! Thank you for offering this wonderful opportunity ~ besides, you wear the best tops when filming…

  3. My dream is to love what I do and do what I love. I’m constantly wanting to try new ideas and have just recently learned mixed media. This would help me explore new creative avenues. I’m so excited about Life Book!

  4. I’m a single mom from Wisconsin and I’ve been creating mixed media works for roughly a year and a half now . My art is one way for me to be able to take little vacations! 🙂 Amy

  5. My dream is to keep growing as an artist! I’m on my way…after a few years of doing private commissions, I’m now represented by a local gallery, and just sold my first piece from the gallery! It’s so exciting but there’s still do much more to learn.

  6. My dream is to keep growing as an artist. There’s so much more to try and learn!

  7. I live with chronic pain. Art has helped me distract and even manage my pain and it treats not just the physical symptoms of pain by distracting me, it helps with the psychological symptoms of living with a chronic condition. Life Book would give me more tools for me to use and I would be honoured to win a spot for this course.

  8. Just took your class..would love to win!

  9. My art dream has changed over the years as I have been creating things for about 50 years. I think I am looking for the hidden things as an artist. I want to be a transmitter instead of a translater of what is in and around me.

  10. I dream for my true innermost self to be set free and to live with joy, peace, and abundance through art!

  11. Wow, Lynn, what an opportunity! All my favorite artists (and then some) are part of this online class!!! Hoopteedoo!!! My art dream is simply to be in the creative process everyday. What a wonderful thing it is to be able to do this with your favorite artist in one’s own home! xoxoxoxox

  12. To be wrapped up in a lighted space so bright that my art voice just pours forth

  13. I am in the midst of starting my own business and finding that making art time for myself is so key to staying sane!

  14. My art dream is to complete a book I’ve been working on for about a year. It is for children and it is a scrapbook story of two children who keep a diary for the ghost of their grandfather.

  15. My art dream would be to travel to other countries to take classes with some of my favorite mixed media Art teachers!

  16. Mi sueño…que complicado!!! En resumen ser feliz, y por fin me atrevo a decir que parte de esa felicidad la encuentro pintando. Para mi la pintura siempre ha formado parte de mi vida, pero ahora por fin me he decidido a que quiero que sea mi modo de vida. Me ayudas a conseguirlo?
    Muchas gracias. Love. Sarah

  17. Thanks for a chance to win the Life Book Class for 2015! I am so excited that you are teaching in it. It will be fun, fun, fun! And meaningful too!

  18. My dream is to spend time each day, every day making art. I don’t care to be known or even if I’m very good at it (in other peoples’ eyes). I just want to make stacks and stacks of canvases, papers, and art journals, all full of thoughts, ideas, experiments, “mistakes”, and occasional bits of genius.

  19. My art dream in its simplest form is to make art every day for the rest of my days! The details of it involve a nice big barn by the sea for retreats with campfires and yoga, inspiring others to awaken the creativity inside of them that is transformative and powerful enough to have a positive effect on the world. So, basically, I want to Play with Colors and Save the World! And I’d love to win!

  20. I hope, I’m the lucky winner!

  21. Dear Lynn, I came from a long line of artists, writers and actors. I took all the art classes I could in high school. Had to help support my family when I was 16 so art college was out. Married, had two great kids with minor disabilities that are also extremely talented and one that attends art college. I have always been my happiest by being creative in any form or manner. The one thing I never explored was drawing and painting. Never thought I could be as good as my mother.

    A year ago, I started drawing and painting. I set up an art studio in my house and I paint or do mixed media every day for at least a couple hours. I take a journal with me everywhere I go and draw at every opportunity. I see myself improving but I need more skills so I can find my own style. I seem to have come to a standstill in the growing department.
    I would love to take Lifebook 2015. I believe it would be my turning point to become the artist I so desire to become. Thank you for the opportunity to be in the running 🙂 Julie

  22. Thanks to you, Lynn, I am growing as an artist and finding my artistic voice and style. Your collage class was the best ever and Lifebook 2014 is the reason I found you through Carla Sonheim. I would love to have a spot in 2015 to continue on my quest to find my voice as an artist!!! Hugs and love!

  23. I dream of being able to make art all the time and quit being in another business. Making art is an energy giver and makes me happy.Love Life Book 2014; loved Joy of Collage. So I’d love to win this spot. xoxo

  24. At 56 I’ve realized I needed to let the creative spirit loss from all the nay sayers that held it back for so many, and I mean many years. I’m starting slow so that little voice that says you can’t do this sleeps soundly. I believe this would be a safe supportive environment to let that spirt soar. I will add that I owe Trish Nonaka much gratitude (she’s entered also) for her tremendous spirit lifting abilities. She shares her knowledge freely and generously with other!

  25. I dream of understanding… what compels me to create and what messages my heart and mind are sending to me through the creative process and my art.

  26. Thank you so much for The opportunity. I would love to win!
    My dream is to keep growing as an artist.

  27. Connecting, loving, supporting, enlightening, fascinating, motivating, inspiring – Lynne Wipple = putting the ING into life hahaha! lol. lots of fun ❤ Gill 😉

  28. My art dream is to keep improving and learning new techniques, I would love to do nothing else but to create for the rest of my life! I would like to create books (either kid’s illustrated or how-to) eventually.

  29. Thanks for this opportunity. My dream is to be able to draw what I can imagine. with Carla’s classes I got over the fear and I hope to get better every day.
    my job is not art related at all and this is my only escape.

  30. Feed me with input….I enjoy learning more and more of how to create art. I love watching how my style defines with every class I join. The style is not finished yet, I want to learn more. Oh what a joy ;o))

  31. My art dream is to create freely and joyfully, with my own voice, to be present for it and enjoy it.

  32. Like Donkey said in Shrek…. PICK ME! PICK ME!
    Now in seriousness….. I keep feeling he need to be more artistic! I’m a vector based artist… I’m a designer actually but like the term ARTIST more… it fits better… I’ve been experimenting with paint ever since I met Carla Sonheim (via her e-courses)…. Then Lynn Whipple whom I loved as well!
    This would be a GREAT opportunity to experiment even more but with a guide! I’ve been experimenting blindfolded basically….. I’ll keep going… I’m loving gttign my hands dirty ❤

  33. I would love to win the spot just like everyone else. My art is one of my challenges and a life saver. Life book not only challenges your art but also your soul and that is what I love about it. alena

  34. I would love to win a place in Lifebook 2015. I’m sure it would further my art journaling as I’m still just a beginner. I have been playing for a couple of years, but I’m not consistent with my journal. I think Lifebook would give me that. Thanks for the chance.

  35. Oh, I would love to make a living with my art. 🙂 That’s my dream.

  36. I believe this is my year!

  37. What a wonderful class offering! My dream is to become consistent in my art making, to learn to focus and to work daily.

  38. I’ve drawn since I was a child but when I got to college my teachers were so horrible critical that I couldn’t take the narrow-mindedness… it broke my heart and I put my pencils away for 25years. Now I’m starting over my life and I just took them out. I’m still struggling with my confidence. This would be an amazing and life changing thing for me. Thanks you.

  39. I am a working Mum and love to paint and create. I love it when one of my paintings speak to someone and I know it has found who it belongs to. My art dream is to do Art Therapy with children…one day…Thank you for this opportunity for further growth…

  40. My art dream is to continue to create as long as I continue to breathe! Thanks for the inspiration.

  41. I cannot imagine a day without art in it 😀 You get to play, bare your soul and find inspiration with whatever makes you happy 😀 My art dream is to be able to keep learning how to make more beautiful art till I find the art style that makes my heart sing 😀

  42. My art dream is really to just find my own path in art and to know it with out a doubt. (if that makes sense…lol)

  43. Sounds like fun, thanks for the opportunity to win a spot.

  44. Thank you for the chance to win! My art dream is to retire near my sister and spend our days creating together (we’ve been living in different countries for nearly 30 years, but still speak on the phone several times a week…). The prize would be for her..

  45. I learned so much this summer when I enrolled in “Summer Art Camp” that Carla Sonheim organized. I especially enjoyed your segment and learned how to appreciate those ‘yummy’ areas on the canvas as they developed. Learning from 25 artists all year long sounds like a dream come true. I’ve always believed in life long learning and I still have a lot to learn to help me develop my own style and art skills. Creating a book at the end of the year would be wonderful thing to pass on to my children and grandchildren.

  46. Art is my passion. I do not have a lot time to pursue creating but the time that I do I can feel my heart soring. I hope to join the life book group for 2015. What an exciting experience!!!

  47. I’ve wanted to take LifeBook b4…love the idea of having access to so many wonderful instructors and so many inspiring projects throughout a whole year. Many of the instructors are ones I have always dreamed of taking classes with, and there is truly a great selection. I am also an artist who has had a hard time making a living with my art but I believe that I will find a way to successfully market my own quirky brand of creativity eventually. My dream is to inspire and spread joy through art!

  48. I just learned about Life Book 2015 the other day, and I’m incredibly excited about the course. I have just recently decided to step away from my current job, so that I can concentrate on my artistic self and refine my personal artistic style in 2015. This course will be the perfect catalyst for that goal, and winning a spot in the class would be sublime! I’m excited to be learning from you, and all the other incredibly talented artists who are a part of this project!

  49. Carla was. The first art/drawing class I ever took. She got me on the first exercise. ” I would love one year with her”

  50. Short Comment: Need, want, hope to create everyday and learn all the skills i possibly can.

  51. I would love to join in the Lifebook fun! My art dream: To silence the negative thoughts about my own artwork. It’s a constant struggle. I stay on top of it most days, but the negative self talk creeps in when you don’t expect it and can ruin a great experience.

  52. My dream is my artist abilities to grow and lifebook will be avery suitable process. I love to hear that Carla is part of lifebook 2015 again!

  53. Hi Lynn! Thank you for this offer! I am a new artist and feel very self conscious using that word to describe myself. My dream is to feel confident in my creativity and self expression… To create beautiful, fun, unique expressions of myself through art!

  54. Oh what a wonderful class! I would really love to write and draw a children’s book. In my family is a lot of negative stereotyping about creativity. When my grandfather finally did have the courage to write a book about his life, he died. My mother also died after having the courage to become creative, so I had ans still have to overcome a lot of fear to become creative myself. Really would love to have the support of such an inspiring class and classmates!


  55. Thank you for this offer! I would love to take this class/experience. I am a new artist and feel super self conscious describing myself in that way… My dream is to become confident in myself as an artist, as a creative being, enough to develop my own style and to create beautiful, fun, colorful visual and tactile expressions of myself with art!!

  56. My art dream is to take an actual “live in person” class. It is on my bucket list

  57. How do you put into words an art dream, something that changes with every new experience, revisited memory, conversation with a stranger? Maybe my art dream is to create. And when I ask people what they see, they say that they see themselves. Thanks for the challenging question.

  58. My art dream: to create and and express myself so truthfully that people recognize their own selves.

  59. Having gone to school to pursue an art career I got sidelined by earning a living. Have been gradually trying to get back to the original goal and find it is now within my reach. Participating in Life Book would certainly speed that along 🙂

  60. Would love to realize some of the ideas churning around in me through art.

  61. Hello! This is Cristina from Romania, happily married and art lover, I blog at and . I love early mornings. Autumn is my season. Love nature and purple is my favorite color. Cappuccino with lots of cream and cinnamon is one of my favorite drinks. If I’ll win a spot in LIFE BOOK this will be my FIRST time participating! Not to mention it would be a great birthday present, as my birthday is on October 6th!

    Much love,

  62. My art dream is to lose the monkey and start feeling confident about making art every day.

  63. my art dream is to get in the habit of making art everyday, big or small. a habit, a very nice habit! to also be able to unleash my inner artist that got stuffed down when life got busy adn the world turned my life on it’s head!

  64. Hi! Sounds like fun and a great learning experience! Here in Germany aren`t many workshops for mixed media artists. That`s why I love online classes.

  65. I admire each and every one of the teachers lined up, it would be so exciting to be involved in this class!

  66. because i want to soak up all the artFULLjoy you have to give…and it’s lovezillions worth…i know it 🙂

  67. My goodness! Why wouldn’t I want to be a part of Lifebook? It is an essential ingredient of living an artful life! xoxox

  68. I have been inspired by past teachers of Life Book. It is my art dream to work on developing my own style this year. I am a caregiver to a “young” 91 yr old wonderful mom who totally loves looking at my art. Her music teacher once mistook a painting she did of a great Native American on a horse for a camel. She never quite got over that. I’d love to win!!!

  69. I’m a teacher, wife to a great man for 15 years, mother of two boys, aged 12 and 9 (and they are both very talented and unique – the older one with ADHD, the younger with autism). I live in Poland (Europe) and art keeps me sane – literally 🙂
    I have a very simple art dream – I want to get better and better and grow as an artist, and I know that I need a regular practice to achieve that… this is why I really need Life Book – to have motivation from wonderful teachers (and in 2015 they are – OMG – a dream team!) to create all year through!
    I really want to get lucky and win, thank you for this opportunity!

  70. My art dream is to learn to loosen up. in my art, while creating i love the sense of peace, but my art is still very controlled, i am working on it and it is slowly loosening up. And i am enjoying every second of it 🙂

  71. I am so drawn to the Life Book Course and I would love a chance to participate. I grew up with an artist for a father, but never felt like I had any talent for painting, but when I stumbled upon mixed media art, I fell in love and my creativity bloomed. There is something about mixed media that allows freedom to express myself in ways that I cannot in every day life. It has brought me such joy and I hope to be able to do it full time one day.

  72. Thanks for this wonderful chance — I would soooo love to win!

  73. My art dream is to one day have my own studio with amazing natural light coming through huge windows, where I can paint every single day. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win! Looks like lots of fun and a great chance to grow as an artist.

  74. I’m in the middle of finding my freedom and finding my own style. So my dream is to keep playing with new techniques and find my way =)

  75. My art dream is to learn as much as I can about the creativity that is hiding inside me…I have seen so much of it come out over the past 3 years because of LB. I would love to win a spot in LB 15!

  76. I love Lifebook – always so many new-to-me teachers to discover and learn from. Exciting!

  77. Thanks for the chance to win! My art dream is that I will continue to learn new techniques and grow as an artist. Life Book 2014 has certainly helped me along and I’d love to win a spot for 2015!

  78. Dear Lynn, thank you so much for this giveaway! My art dream is to win a place in Life Book 2015 and learn from this astounding lineup of talented and creative women how to become my own talented and creative woman!


  79. I’am curiouw about lifebook 2015, never followed it before, But is seems great, and i have heard a lot about it. So it’s a great chance to win and learn and discover more about mixed media, art journal and other things. My dream is do more with my creativity. I want to learn to do more and less thinking, also exploring different techniques and having fun!

  80. To fulfill my art dream, I would have to have an unlimited budget, a workspace for all mediums, and all the time in the world with no other worries. Yes, it is good to dream! Thanks for this opportunity!

  81. My art dream is to keep learning new things

  82. My dream is to be able to express myself without being overly critical of my own abilities. I want to get out on the page what I feel inside and be happy with what I’ve produced.

  84. life book looks amazing! my art dream is to facilitate daily, weekly, monthly, retreats to all ages and share my belief that art is healing. I hope to find a permanent home for my dream very soon or at the very least start with one workshop. 🙂 thanks for the opportunity to win a spot! have a wonderful day! ciao!

  85. I have been wanting to be apart of the lifebook journey for years now.. to learn and grow from the lessons provided by all the talented artists!! This years line up is just fantastic and I’m crossing my fingers I win!! My dream for my art is simply to continue to play and grow!! I love trying new techniques and sharing the creative play with my kids is also very important!! 🙂

  86. I’m a stay at home mom of two kids. Now that they are getting older, I’m trying to spend some of my time developing a sense of who I am and who I want to be. Winning a spot in Life Book would help me to know where to start in my art journey and give me great focus!

  87. I’m a single mom and I’ve been painting for just over two years now. My art dream is to keep growing as an artist, technically and soulfully, and to continue increasing sales to a point where I may be able to open my own gallery.

  88. my art dream is to simply have time and space to spend more time on art. for now, i have made a commitment to take care of an elderly, disabled relative. the blocks of time i have are short, so my projects take a long time. but i would love to have some inspiration and ideas to make these time periods more like art play.

  89. My dream is to learn who I am as an artist and maybe if it’s in the realm of possibility share my art.

  90. Thank you so much for the opportunity! My big dream is to transfer my love for art to my little ones 🙂

  92. I am so excited that you and the other artist are giving back. I have decided to take my Art to the next level. I have been teaching art to homeschoolers for a while now and providing private lessons. But today…. I continue on the most daring, life changing path I’ve ever been on. I need to become the student again. I need to learn from all you incredible teachers. I was diagnosed with a bizarre disease called R.S.D. It’s a Nerve pain disease & for the last 14 years I have lived with severe pain on my left side. One of my doctors noticed that I was artistic and told me to sign up for art classes. Because they found that the process of “Arting” alleviates pain! And boy dose it work. It’s lowers a lot of my pain. This disease took most of my life away. But God has given me a talent to use to encourage others that suffer from physical or mental pain. The brain does not distinguish the difference between Physical or Mental Pain. I need this awesome course to learn from the best. I believe I can step out, and dare to start a new life, showing others that Art is Part of the healing process!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  93. It’s already been interesting and inspiring to see all these different blogs–imagine the class! My art dream is to always be able to create what I want…no impediments physically or mentally.

  94. My art dream is to create beautiful pieces for my family to admire once I’m gone.

  95. my art dream is to continue to grow through the teachings of other artists and also to be able to use what I learn to give back and eventually make some money-for more art:) Thanks for the chance for a spot in this amazing class!

  96. As a jewellery designer I work up a lot in metal. The work process is slow. The work is mostly in silver, black or gold.
    I want a little more color and lightness in my life. And this joyful spirituality have seen in the creativity of so many artists on the blog hop.

  97. Long time dabbler, just recently finished a piece I was happy enough to put on the wall under the guidance of Carla and Diane. would love the opportunity to learn from those who go before me 🙂

  98. Hi Lynn, I’m dreaming of renting a tiny art studio to have a space for myself to play around with colour and create 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win a spot!

  99. Winning a spot for LB 2015 would be amazing. I’m so glad you are one of the teachers next year. I love, love your work. My dream is to share my art experiences with my 2 granddaughters ages 16 and 9. They always think they are not good enough and make mistakes. I want them to know that the mistake in their eye is their creative muse busting out in all it’s excitgement. I want them to be able to create with freedom. We spend lots of time in my art room and it just makes me happy. What better dream could there be………………..Thanks for an opportunity to win a spot.

  100. Congrats Lynn!! I love watercolours, acrylics & mixed media. I love to keep learning new techniques. An art dream would be going to an art retreat in Tuscany with friends! Cheers!!!

  101. i am a maker and my dream is to have my art not just speak to me but others as well.

  102. I want to learn to be satisfied with the imperfection. Perfection is so boring, I know this and I allow it for everyone – why not for me?!

  103. I am Kristin, I have suffered with depression my whole life. I am finally realizing that that is not normal and the I need to feel better. I love to create and run. Those are the two things I use to fight! My dream is to help others fight through art! I just feels good to create!!

  104. My dream is to include art in my life every day, and to grow in my learning and my joy of it. I’m working on it and am grateful for the opportunity to add Life Book 2015 to my days. Looks fabulous

  105. My art dream started late in life,about 8 years ago. I do want to spend the rest of My later Senior Years creating with design and color. It brings Me so much joy.It seems to help Me relax but excites Me all at the same time-What FUN !

  106. My art dream is to learn to let go and allow myself to play. I’ve been a software engineer for over 25 years, and coming from such a disciplined environment I find it hard not to try to line things up, make everything straight and even. I’ve been enjoying LB this year and was thrilled to see that you’ll be teaching next year!

  107. My art dream . . . . to create FREELY with abandon!!! Thank you for the chance to win a spot in LB 2015!!! Nice to meet you!

  108. Intense, intuitive and spiritual describes me and my art dream. I’m taking small steps towards realizing my ultimate goal of teaching art in my own studio. I have the space, just need to organize it. I have the talent, just need make time to hone and use it. This is a big challenge while working a 50 hour work week in someone else’s employ.

  109. My art dream is to have all the art supplies I need in a wonderful ORGANIZED studio (ha, yea right) and lots of time to play and get messy!! In a more realistic vein, I think LB fits my dream, I love art and I love to learn, so learning from a different artist each week is so great!! 2014 was/is great and really hope to be part of 2015

  113. Wow… so many art dreams!! 1st small art dream: supplies supplies supplies :). 2nd Big Art dream: This is my day dream: to have a place where artist of all kinds can come together and create. When I say artists of all kinds I mean All kinds be it crafters, painters, potters, musicians, writers, knitters, etc… the list goes on. A safe place to hang out where we can all come together and create a love based peaceful world in every city. Kinda like a LB place.. 🙂
    I would so love to win a spot on LB2015… Thank you for this opportunity!

  114. My dream in art is to be happy with my creations and improve the way I do the pages in my art journal.
    Here, in South America, where I live, is very difficult find all the beautiful supplies that I see in the blogs or videos of the artist that I follow. But I try do not give up and do the best with the materials I already have.
    I love to draw faces, do collage and watercolor paintings.
    I would love to win a spot, is the only way I can be part of this lovely experience.

  118. My art dream is to fill my home with art that I have made.

  119. I just completed my first art journal page a few days ago and am so excited to learn everything I can for my art journaling and mixed media projects. I felt my heart sing and my wings open to fly, after completing my first journal page. It’s an awesome feeling and one I want to continue in the Life Book 2015 class. I’m psyched!!

  120. I dream of one day owning a mobile art studio. I also dream of winning a spot on the amazing art adventure for 2015.

  122. Congratulations on being an instructor for Life Book 2015 – how wonderful for you, and US! I am a married mother of an adult daughter. I work with adults that have physical and cognitive physical disabilities. My art dream is that I would be able to gain more confidence in my finished product and that I can continue to use it as a source of therapy to help me with PTSD and severe depression. I know it has saved my life, and pulled me through my darkest days. Now, I want to be more comfortable with the process and less “stiff” and concerned about “perfection”. Thank you for this opportunity to win a spot, I hope you have a great year!


  123. My art dream is to have the time and space to create everyday and to get to the point where I see my own style shining through. I am working hard to make that dream a reality! Thanks for the chance to win a spot in Lifebook 2015!

  124. I would be so honored to win a spot on this course! My art dream is to be able to sell my art – for that, I still have some learning to do….and courage to gather…and faith & hope…

My art dream is to feel free to play and explore again and create art for the joy that it brings into my life.

  128. It’s been the most amazing journey EVER!!!! My dream is to keep growing as an artist. I’m starting to find my pace, what my style is and what mediums I tend to like to use most. My dream is to learn how to really use the supplies I have, and to become an urban sketcher. (Have to learn to draw a bit better before that happens.) I’d also like a space in my house that is just mine where I can cry and get frustrated when I’m not getting it, or do my happy dance when I do get it right. I’d also like to start learning how to use canvases. That’s not too much is it??? Oh and if we’re wishing and dreaming, I’d like to add…I’d love to win the lottery. 🙂 Seriously though, I’d be happy to just win a free spot. Thanks again, and looking forward to 2015!!!! (((HUGS))))

  129. I would love to win a spot i the Life book 2015 class! I currently work mainly with pen and ink drawing flowers and paisleys.

  130. Oh I can’t wait to be part of this amazing journey with all the inspiring teachers.

  131. My art dream is to be able to create full time and to teach to others too. I especially want to share mixed media stitching with other people.

  132. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! My art dream…wow..that’s big! Most of all I think my dream is to be flowing and free with my art and release the rules of what things are “supposed” to look like. Good luck to me!

  133. My dream as an artist is just to have the time to create. Life is so busy these days and I would love to just be locked up with my artwork for a few days uninterrupted.

  134. I would love to continue making art so I get a style that is recognizable and be able to travel and maybe teach it to others. Thanks for the chance!

  135. My dream is to leave my “day job” in the next 2-3 years and have a busy schedule teaching art to adult women, wounded warriors and military wives and dependents. I believe art heals and that each of us has a creative side that needs to be reawakened and shared with the world. I want to be the inspirational catalyst for others!

    My art dream is to continue to publish my art in magazines and books.

  148. I would love to win a spot on Lifebook 2015! My art dream is to go on one of those fabulous art retreats I’m always reading about. Like Bali or Paris. I’ve never been out of my own country.

  153. I am currently paying a lot to go to school right now to hopefully get accepted into their art program. My biggest art dream is to eventually find my style and create pieces that are unique and have a story to tell. I would love to be able to live as an artist. I think Lifebook would help me immensely in developing a lot of those skills needed. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot!!

  154. My artdream is to keep learning and developing as an artist and also as art therapist, so that I can not only help myself, but also my clients. 🙂

  155. I don’t know you yet but cant wait for the chance to meet you on LifeBook 2015..Thanks in advance for sharing your tricks!

  156. My art dream is to someday have the time and the space to do what i love. I so envy all you beautiful ladies who get to really immerse yourself in art!

  157. my art dream is to have the freedom to put down on paper all the art that is in my head. Too many ideas, and not enough time to work on them. Basically I want to be able to create regularly, if only life would co-operate, lol! thanks for the chance to win!

  158. A dream for my art… to keep me sane in a have-to life. Have to work, have to stay in San Diego if I stay with my husband, have to do what is “right”. Art – I get to do whatever I want, go wild, experiment, buck the system, stay sane.

  159. My art dream would be to teach kids to express themselves thru art. So many schools have no art programs that it makes me sad, so my dream would be to create a program that I would take into the schools to allow children to explore through various mediums. Thank you for the chance to win!

  160. Congratulations! My art dream is to keep making art and to be able to one day teach full time art in a high school.

  162. I would love to win a spot in LifeBook 2015, and appreciate this opportunity! I have challenged myself for the month of october to do one painting/day to get my creative juices flowing so it should be a great month!

  163. My art dream is to take classes from as many artists as I can. I want to learn lots of styles and techniques so that I can develop my own style. Taking Life Book 2015 would help me to achieve this.

  164. Yay I’ve heard your name around a lot, can’t wait to learn from you!

    My big art dream is helping people be inspired and transform their lives through art. I’m such a big fan of empowerment and self-actualisation through art. By doing mixed media art and art journaling I’ve enriched my life so much and learned so much about myself. I really feel like I can help make the world a better place with art!

  165. For all my life I have wanted to immerse myself in art, but life had other directions for me. Now, due to a family illness, I’ve had to retire and for the first time I get to play! Being able to create this past year has given me unmeasurable peace and I know this is the path I am supposed to be on. I would love to win a spot in LB2015, thanks for the chance! 🙂

  166. Lifebook 2015 ! Love the possibilities of a year long journey with so many wonderful mentors. My dream is to come into my own with my art and find my own true style.

  167. My art/life dream is to live in harmony. I think art has such potential to bridge boundaries, to celebrate both the same and the different among peoples, to encourage and embrace and accept, to be playful, to grow and heal and evolve. I hope to be an example to my children of someone following their dreams, over the bumps and through the briars (failures and obstacles), learning all the way and enjoying the journey. My art dream is be the best that I can be, learning to let love grow, in spite of hurts and haunts. I’m a new “born again” artist after thinking it was not practical and that I had to put childish things aside, which included art. Thankfully, I had kids and that gave me an excuse to play again. I’ve awakened to the amazing opportunity that art can actually help us live more fully. Thanks for the chance to win a spot and thank you for making art and choosing to help others do the same! 🙂

  168. My art dream is that I would be able to do art full time! Glad you are teaching and I am so excited for LB2015

My Lifebook journey so far has allowed me to gain confidence and skills to begin to see that this might actually be possible. Is love to win a place for next year!
