Celebrate with me and WIN lots of Goodness!!



As most of you know....I'm embarking on a new and wonderful journey....a journey that has been a burning desire of mine since a child if you really want to go back in time.  Way back in time says this 'young and sprite' 42 year old.   Back in the day my goal was to be a fiction writer who traveled the 4 corners of the world through romance, adventure, drama, and maybe even a little comedy  nestled in between the pages of my American novel.  That dream  was gently tucked away for pretty much the majority of my life after college when I realized my writing wasn't up to par nor was my ability to be disciplined enough to work for myself  as a writer. I set that goal aside for a more practical life, one in business and management and that's pretty much where I've stayed for the last 20 some years in different incarnations between the companies I've worked for.  Since 2006 though...through a series of events that are a story in and of itself (hey....maybe that could be the plot for my novel that I've always dreamed about!), I've found my creative voice...and it has grown and grown and become so much a part of who I am now, and who I want to be forever, I am going to listen to the calling within my heart and work full time as an artist starting pretty much this week. In fact, Friday is my last day at my day job. How I got to that point in my decision making process hasn't been easy...but I've made a plan and I'm going to pursue it with everything I have and then some. 
In celebrating this new beginning for me, I have LOTS of fun things in store for YOU...my loyal blog readers, my friends, my new friends who have just started to follow me, and most of all fun things in store for my family.  
What's in it for you???  Well let's just say you are not going to want to miss ANY of my posts coming up....because there is going to be LOTS of giveaways, promotions, specials, and announcements celebrating this  new journey!

So what's on the agenda you ask???? 
The first big announcement is that I am GIVING AWAY....yes you heard it..a FREEBIE from me to you in partnership with my friend and artist extraordinaire, Tamara Laporte of  Willowing      a FREE TUITION to her year long  class... ONE YEAR..holy cow...that's right, ONE YEAR of artsy goodness art journaling, inspiration, lessons, techniques, community, healing and more.  Not to mention all of the wonderful education and fun you will get from Tamara herself, she is sharing the spotlight with 15 other artists (one of which is me..whooohoo) who will be joining her periodically throughout each of the months to share their artistic view on her monthly lesson through a video lesson of their own.    The value of this class is 100.00.....so oh my is that a STEAL based on how much you will get out of the class, it will be more than just a class...it'll be a life changing EXPERIENCE!!
How do you win this most awesome prize???  Simply leave a comment on THIS post from now until October 5th....perhaps tell me why you would like to join this class (click on the images to read even more about the work shop). I can't wait to hear what your dreams and goals will be and what you'd like to get out of the workshop!  Spread the word...send your peeps over here to sign up as anyone can win!!  We want to spread the word about the work shop ultimately which  registration opens up on OCTOBER 3rd, 2011!!
How cool is that????

 (come see me at Norcross Ga October 1st and 2nd for an amazing show.....where I'll be showcasing these pieces and MUCH MUCH MORE)
 What else can you win???? Well since Tam was generous enough to donate one of her classes, I would like to offer up an ORIGINAL painting to one of my blog commenters, to on this post. WHOOOOHOOO.
The painting you will win will be a 6 x 8 painting of one of my cutesy Owl paintings like some of these NEW paintings which I've created over this summer (and then some) for my shows coming up in October.
How cool is that you can win a tuition to Life Book over at willowing.org or you could potentially win one of my new 6 x 8 ORIGINAL paintings.

Don't forget to leave a comment between now and October 5th after which I will use the random number generator to first pick the Life Book winner, and then the second winner will one of my paintings. WHOOHOO!!
 What else is coming up in the next few weeks??   Stay tuned to find out.....one other VERY cool thing I'll be sharing is a giveaway that I am partnering with Somerset Studios with....woot woot....gotta love partner ships and Artful goodness wherever you turn :)

......you may also see gift certificates......artsty destash giveaways, prints......special sales and more.

Celebrate with me from now and hopefully for the rest of my life, living a life that is soulful, passionate, and full of adventure and creativity.  Here's to living the dream by pursuing what is burning inside of you...no matter how long it takes, it's never too late to begin again. and again. and again.  No regrets, we get one chance to live our live our life to the fullest.  Let's do this!
Because...."You are so worth it"

with love,  Jodi

Is it true? Am I really the first one to respond. Nothing but love, luck, laughter, and success to you! :)

Kelsie said...

I would sooooooooooo love the freebie class. I am always so obligated in my art to teach other people that I never get to do art just for me. this would make me do my own beautiful art. I think that's the way I will grow more as an artist.

Tiffany said...

jodi you are going to be amazing :) i will miss my partner in crime in the work force! here is to you and all the success in the world.

much love
tiffany

LoSiNg My MiNd said...

Personally, I would like to win something like this, because after losing a parent, getting a divorce, moving to another town with nothing...I dont know who I am anymore as a person, or an artist (amateaur that I am). The experience, the adventure..the worth is immeasurable.

Bev said...

Oh wow Jodi this is the best , i want to win so much ive spent my quota for the year on classes and with moving and then christmas well , i will be broke lol and what a way to start the new year with all u wonderful artists to inspire us ....

hugz bev langby leofaerie17@gmail.com

teresa aka tess said...

Oh Jodi I am so happy for you. A real dream come true and you are taking those first steps. And they are not babysteps either. So proud of you. You are such a wonderful inspiration. I would love to win the Life Book class. I find staying focused for too long hard and a year long class would give me plenty of time to learn, share and take in all of the wonderful classes. I hope to retire and become a volunteer at our local arts center one day. Wouldn't that be great fun??

carlanda brown williamson said...

i would love to win a year long class or a painting of yours. what a great giveaway. you will do well in your new career. you are talented and lovely and i imagine you will be so busy you won't be able to keep up! "i knew her when.............."! good luck to you and good luck to me to win! xo

Peggy Wilkinson said...

This looks fabulous! I would love to win. So many talented artists. If I don't win I just might have to sign up anyway! (But I'd like to win it!)

Marlene said...

Jodi I am so excited I can hardly stand it I hope I get to win this great prize or a piece of your art I really love your work and your use of colors. But I have told you that before. I am going to take the class some way or another. It is at the top of my Christmas list. Thanks for your inspiration and may God lead you to do great things in all those you touch.

cindi banach said...

hi! i've been trying to post a comment for over half an hour. *fingers crossed that this one takes* i'd love to win. very exciting! =)

Jacquie Williamson said...

i'm so glad you are doing this giveaway. i saw tam's course, and once i saw that you were a guest teacher, i decided i had to take it. whoooohoooo. and a chance to win. it doesn't get better than that. i wish you the BEST OF LUCK in your new venture. actually, i never would have guessed that you weren't a full time artist already. :)

Cynthia Hanna said...

Wow Jodi! I'm new to your blog, but signed up for your emails. You're such a wonderful inspiration!

I'd love to win the class! I've recently decided to take a leap of faith and get more into creating art. Art keeps me sane and helps me to maintain balance as I deal with chronic illness/disabilities and long term unemployment/loss of income, but I'm still very much exploring and experimenting. This class would be a perfect opportunity to help me move further towards my goals and dreams, and hopefully rebuild my life by 'thinking outside the box'.

Conni vom Atelier Tante Trulla said...

Good luck for your new beginning. You will make it.

huntla1 said...

Congratulations on your decision to make a huge life change. Wishing you all the best. I love the idea of both of your giveaways. Your owls are just darling and I love the colors you use. The class is one that I am tossing about wondering, wishing and hoping to be able to take. I would just love to win tuition! Thank you so much for your generosity.

Tweetybirds said...

This is a fantastic giveaway! The BEST this year. Good luck on your new endeavor!

Shari Sherman said...

Congratulations, Jodi! I have been following you for a whle and I know this has been a long-time coming. Much success to you! I'd love to win the LIFE BOOK, because I just that it is awesome, a whole year of inspiration and guidance! Also, one of your paintings wouldn't be too shabby either! A symbol of how dreams can come true!

Kristin said...

Hello!! I would absolutely loooove to win a spot on this!! The reason why would be that I work my butt off everyday in order to support myself and try to get enough saved to go to school and get out of debt. I am usually so exhausted by the time I get off and I would lay in bed and think of all the art things I want to do but I just won’t have enough energy to move or think of a project.

Art Journaling is something I just recently discovered existed and I think it is awesome and I have no idea how to do it or where to start. I feel that a spot in this class would push me to be more actively creative and teach me things I can use for the rest of my life.

I have recently started Tam’s Fabulous Faces which has helped me some in my journey but this would just be a dream come true. Not only would I be receiving instruction from her, but from so many other great artists such as yourself.

I mainly just want and need to be taught, motivated and inspired to push myself into finding my own style and becoming a unique artist.

Natasha said...

Congratulations for big changes and fantastic giveaway! :)

Kristine said...

Hi Jodi - I would love to win this year full of Art because I am truly a beginner - I am a Photographer and a Writer, but I would love to be able to "Make Art" and I am unsure of where to start - This would give me so many options ... Congrats your new journey!
~Kristine

Bec Clarke said...

I soo want to do this class, I think it would help free my creativity even more than the last class I took.
As for winning an original artwork that just takes the cake.

Petie said...

What a wonderful year you and anyone taking your class is going to have!! It's so exciting and the creativity is going to be electric!! I would so love to win this giveaway but I know Carlanda always wins..but maybe..just maybe I have a chance. :D Thank you so much for your generosity, I know this year long workshop is going to be a huge success!!

Kelly Lynn said...

I would love to win this class! I plan on taking it but have to save up a bit of money first. I have taken classes from a few of the teachers including you and have loved every minute of it!! I am suddenly seeing my own work really developing from all the time I'm putting in in online classes and practicing. Winning your print would be awesome too! I LOVE your work and have one of your prints displayed in my house now! Thank you so much for this opportunity!

Edie said...

It is wonderful to watch your dreams becoming reality! Whether I win a spot or not, I'm planning to take the class - I'd like to be able to find my own artistic voice while I am able!

Jeanne Turner McBrayer said...

Hi Jodi, I have taken one of your classes online, and would love to win the give-away. Since I took your class, I have been journaling all the time. I have about five different journals that I play in. I love to try new materials, color combinations, and techniques. Good luck with your full-time artistic career!

Lena said...

I'm loving the idea of a year long art journaling course that is all about taking time to explore me, just me. I'm only familiar w/ a couple of the guest artists so this will be exciting & inspiring...you're new to me as well! Thank you for the generous opportunity! Blessings ~H♥~

Amy said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win. Tam's Lifebook looks extraordinary, and I can't wait for it to begin. :)

Hearthling said...

Oh, my. How wonderful! I would so love to win the spot in the class. I was reading about it yesterday morning and spent the rest of the day daydreaming about being able to take it. I'm just starting to find my confidence with art and beginning to feel as if I really can do this. Having so much knowledge and talent from so many wonderful artists all in one loooong class would be like finding the artistic pot of gold!

Biscuit said...

Wow, thank you so much for the chance to win. I would *love* to get on the course, I've recently got into art and art journalling and it's very theraputic for me. Lifebook looks like an AMAZING course to be on, but I just can't afford it, so the chance to win a spot is just fantastic.

Kelly Heggem said...

Oh how I would love a spot on the Life Book course... It's exactly what I need. I'm a newbie at art journaling and I am having the best time learning everything I can at the moment. A spot on Life Book would be an educational and inspirational boost to what I love and need the most: CREATIVITY!

miz katie said...

Oh, wow! I would love a chance to win! I've always loved your art.

Erica said...

I would so much love a chance to win an entry into this workshop for free. I am very self-conscious about my work and I lack inspiration- I hope that these courses would help me learn to get past these demons that are holding me back. Good luck to everyone entering, xox.

DellaLuna said...

I would so love to win a spot in this class!! I've been drooling about it ever since Tam announced it, and I love getting to know all the teachers. I would love to gain some healing from a dark past via this course.

Dana said...

Oh wow!! I came to enter the free drawing and never suspected that I would be so deeply moved by your story. Except for the writer aspect you could have been telling my story! I'm 49 and I giggled at your "back in the day". My kids tease me when I say things like that saying, yea mom, we know.. back in the olden days! But everything else you said, a full time career, raising kids, living my life and all the while that seed has been there just waiting to flower. That is why I am EXCITED about Life Book. 10 years, 5 years, 2 years from now I want to look back and say, there, that was what changed my artistic life!
Hugs~
Dana

congratulations Jodi what an exciting and scary journey you are embarking on. I applaud you. I have a feeling you will do very well.

But hey, I am surrounded by art supplies and artists. No regrets!

tessyluv45 said...

Wow what a womderful giveaway. There are many reasons I would like to win. I guess the first would be is I just turned 50 and just started an art journal for the first time ever. I found Tam when I was searching for how to do and ideas and techniques and she is my favorite teacher! She is just amazing. And then I found you through her and signed up to follow you and would love to win one of your owl paintings. I collect owls. Thank you for such an awesome chance.

Rosa Lily (Pen) said...

Im a new follower (found you via Willowing). Im not a trained artist but it's in my heart and I love my passion and I love to learn from the experts, so winning this would be a small step on the road to perfection :) xx

Lori said...

Hi Jodi,

What a gift it would be to have the guidance and support of all of you for a year! Though I've taken your, and other's, online classes, I seem to stick with it mostly through the session and then get caught up in life right after. I think this would be exactly what I need to create some much better habits of creativity!
Thanks for the opportunity,
Lori

Why ?
Becuase I am as brave as your little purple owl and I am worth it, yes I am ! I have to tell myself these things every day !
Also :
Because I would LOVE to get to know all the wonderful teachers.
I would sign up if I could, but I can't at the moment, life has been too shaken up in my corner of the world. So I have to keep my fingers crossed for a win.
♥ your work xoxo

kamiguen said...

This looks like the most amazing course - a chance to learn from some awesome teachers, be involved in a fantastic community, and most importantly, learn more about myself, learn to honour and nurture myself (something we all struggle with I think). Thank you so much for the chance to win this or one of your fabulous paintings. xo

Mamacessories said...

I am so excited for Life Book!!! Also, I am so happy that Tamara is featuring the teachers on her blog..I am now following your blog through e-mail I love your work!!!

Diana said...

I, too, love the idea of both of your giveaways. Your owls are awesome. The class is one that I am tossing about wondering, wishing and hoping to be able to take. I would just love to win. I am on disability and a very fixed income, so winning would be the only way I could do the class. Good luck everyone. Thank you so much for your generosity.

I'd love a spot in this class! I have so much yet to learn!

Midnight Hazel said...

A big "hello Jodi"...I happily stumbled upon you through Willowing, I Love Tam, she is such a beautiful generous spirit. As I write this, I'm saving my pennies for the LB course. I sold my antique porch swing that I restored and used for many happy years so I can hope to join this amazing group. I already feel very fortunate to be a part of Willowing's amazing community. Peace Rhelda

Juju said...

Lura said...

this is a whole new world to me. i was married to a graphic designer, and currently have been with a retired art professor for the last 10 years so i have been surrounded by are for many years. i have done just about every craft you can think of but never could believe that i could be an artist. i want to prove myself wrong...i want to be an artist. this class looks like an amazing opportunity to learn so much. i am disabled and retired and have lots of time now to give it a try but not lots of money to afford all that goes with that. so i hope that i win and i thank you so much for the opportunity to win this course. i look forward to meeting and learning from you all. hugs,lura

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Congratulations on leaving your job and doing what you love! I'm catching all the excitement way over here in the Philippines! Glad to have found you through the willowing blog. Your work is so joyful! patsy.paterno (at) gmail.com

LindieLee said...

The reason I am going to take the Life Class is to have access and input from all the fabulous teachers their techniques, their styles and just get to know them and by taking a short lesson from them perhaps I would later like to pursue full workshops with them. Also, along that vein I would like to see how they present their class technically meaning with limited camera movement, clear auto and video and do they speak the language of Art that I can understand. It’s a thrilling concept of having many teachers more like the art expos I’ve been to. Very cool indeed.

Terry said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win a space on Life Book. I think it would be awesome to take another class from Tam and Mystele and get to meet the rest of the teachers and learn from them as well. I love the art I see here on your blog. Thank you again.

Carol Abel said...

please count me in too. I feel in need of some new inspiration and this sounds fantabulous!

Suzanne said...

Janelle said...

I too have a dream of making a living by selling my creations. Right now I am lucky to stay home with my kids, but I want to help out my poor overworked husband by adding some financial stability to our lives. I would love to take this year long class to expand my artistic horizons. Any way that I can grow my abilities will make me more confident and a better artist. I would love to win one of your paintings as well. You have a wonderful uplifting style. Thank you for this giveaway.

Grace said...

I would love to take a year long class from each of the artist teaching in Tam's workshop but that would take way too long.

Even better is to be able to a little bit from each of you throughout the year. I'd get oodles of inspiration & tips and see tried and true techniques that have worked for all. I am soooo excited about the new adventure. Good luck JOdi!

Leila West said...

I am very excited about this year long course. It will truly be amazing and I am hoping that with so many different styles being taught that I can learn to develop my own style and voice in my art.

Congratulations!! It is wonderful to see your progress. I wish you all the best.

Vickie said...

I would love to win! I'm in the middle of a major life changing event because I just found out Thursday I probably can't go back to my day job because of cancer. So I'm having to re-evaluate and my husband's advice has been, "it's time for me to be the artist I was meant to be". This would certainly help me get there!

Pippa (pjbear) said...

I would love the chance to win this amazing prize, it's been a difficult 18 months and a voyage of self discovery, but I've come to a dead end and need further input as far as my art is concerned. Life Book seems the perfect solution to me. pippa(dot)gore(at)virgin(dot)net

Opal said...

Thank you for this opportunity!

Blessed Be!

kathyL said...

Best wishes to you, your bravery is an inspiration. If you listen to your heart, you can't go wrong! I've been looking at the info for the course every day, wishing that I could participate. I'm on sabbatical from my job, for health and family reasons, so my income has gone down drastically. I recently started Tam's free course that she generously left up on her site. It has ignited my creativity and gotten me back into my "studio" (it's really more like a closet). I'd be deliriously happy with a whole YEAR's worth of lessons from you wonderful artists!

Unknown said...

Congratulations on your art career choice. I would love to win the course! Just got out of a domestic violence situation and shelter. Discovered how healing it is for me to do collage. Love it! and would love to learn.
