Soul Food and Something for YOUR Soul....

It's Monday and I have MORE exciting news for you and a special opportunity for you to win something BIG again this week. My goodness, I'm starting to feel like Oprah lately..lol  well, not exactly that amazing but close, at least in my opinion!  What's the big news you say?? 

I will be one of the 'Sous-Chefs' cooking up
some artsy goodness for you in this NEW collaborative class that begins in 2014!!!



                               Look at that line up of artists and instructors! The diversity of this group is quite stellar, you'll have exposure to projects and lessons that include painting, drawing, collage, jewelry making, portraits, journaling, doodling and much more....yes much MORE....

The MORE includes RECIPES that each of the instructors will share with you.   Each teacher will be doing a step out on one of their favorite recipes that feeds their soul...after all that is the theme of this project!  Nourishment, empowerment, healthy, tasty, educational, and most of all, inspirational.  


 This is the 3rd collaborative project I've participated in and I have to say, working with such an amazing group number one is an honor but even more so for the students, it's a TREMENDOUS value as you get exposure to so many different teachers all for one price and weekly lessons to spur your creativity all year long.  The price of each lesson is around 5.00.  Wow.  You can't beat that!!  Registration is now open and there even is a payment plan.

Here's a sneak peek at just some of the sous chefs:

My friends and family are my main "soul foods". I couldn't exist without their constant love and support. Creativity is my next favorite food! It is such a wonderful feeling to let out all your hopes, dreams and frustrations and create something beautiful and meaningful!

janine said...

Art feeds my soul. Creating and seeing how my creations make people smile. Nature also feeds my soul, the beauty of it, colors, shapes, sizes are just inspiring. My friends and family feed my soul. They bring happiness and joy to my life.

Anonymous said...

My husband and best friend (Saranne) are my major soul foods. Without them I would be lost as they are the road to my creative nature. I love what they bring out in me and that enable my creativity. Thank you for the chance to participate in one of your wonderful journeys.

Dearly ReLoveIt said...

The power of a smile goes along way in feeding my soul ~ It can make such a difference in someonelses day...... it sure does make my day better!

Heather Goldsmith said...

When I'm feeling a bit on the lean and dry side with my writing and art I take a trip to the beach and just let that feed my starving soul.

Diva Kreszl said...

Creating feeds my soul, whether it be a painting/drawing, a flowerbed in my garden, stitching, decoarting my home or a meal I create for my family. I pour myself into all my creations and hope that in sharing what makes me happy people will respond!

JKK said...

Art, creating, eating good food with my favorite people all feed my soul!

Kathleen Brown said...

My grand kids feed my soul. They're so full of life and have such beautiful hopes and dreams for their future. They inspire me to keep living life to the fullest!

Erin Fish said...

Being able to create something - whether it be with our three grand daughters or my group of creative friends, feeds my soul. The warmth, positiveness and fun of doing something together is pure joy. I am grateful every day to be able to create through art.

Erin Fish said...

Thank you for this opportunity Jodi. I have shared this on my FB page.

Susan Goodell said...

Looks like a great group of teachers and lot of creative fun!!

Art, definitely ... spending time with my family but also having "me" time. Thanks for the chance!

Art4me said...

Hi Jodi! My 2 rescue dogs feed me and my creative side! They are always in the same room with me and follow me everywhere. Their consistent, deep down love and appreciation reminds me of how we need to treat each other on a daily basis. I want to come back as a family pet!

Peggy Wilkinson said...

I feed my soul with daily doses of creating art in any form!

janine said...

I shared!!!! Love this idea of learning something new twice a week for half a year!

Martha Richardson said...

Just being in my studio fills my soul...I've created an uplifting space and specific areas that I can just go to and create!

Jeanann said...

What a wonderful contest Jodi :) Thank you for your generosity. What feeds my soul? My family and friends. My friends are family and several family members are my friends and I love that! I love to make personal cards, mini albums, altered boxes etc for my family and friends it make them happy which in turn make me happy. Another thing that feeds my soul is seeing or hearing about acts of kindness. It truly warms my heart.

Jeanann said...

I shared this post. I have a brother Mark that lives in Emerald Isle, NC he is an abstract artist, my sister Laurie in MA does Japanese brush art, My daughter in law Angela loves to do Lousiana themed art and her mother does also .. so I am sure they will all be interested in this!! thank you again Jodi for your wonderful generosity.

Karen said...

My animals(five cats two dogs) fill my soul with the nourishment I crave most. Which then feeds into my creative cravings- which I quell with a pencil or a paintbrush, some paint.....

Karen said...

Oh, and I shared. :)

Leslie Kallen said...

Color and design feeds my soul. Each and better yet, both, get my juices flowing and if I'm not already there, I make a bee line for the artroom.

Deanna Baranowsky said...

The most important soul "joy" in my life is my family, friends, and my animals. (3 doggies, 9 chickens, 1 african grey parrot) However - as joyful as they can be...I am probably more nourished and fed by creativity and art. Pretty much of any kind. Paint - glue...color and goo!!! They tend to produce peace and calmness in my somewhat "over-thinking" brain. I have been walking through 3 of Jodi's classes recently and find that the layering of techniques and color are freeing and calming to my soul.

Deanna Baranowsky said...

I shared on my Facebook page - scouts honor!!! :) :)

Sorry for the multiple posts. The verification kept coming back up. Anyway, I shared because I would love to take this workshop.

Linda said...

so many things feed my soul and many feed it without me even realising it but mainly it is my family, nature - studying the small things like the texture of a leaf or seed pod, colour, watching other artists, allowing myself to feel I can actually just play and even my illness has taught me I have to change constantly what I can and can't achieve anymore so I am always trying to adapt which keeps it interesting xx

Kristin said...

I have posted the giveaway on my twitter! :)

Normajean said...

My hubby is my soul mate. He's more than a partner he's my best friend and my best supporter of my art endeavors.

KarenLS said...

Time outdoors, especially at the beach is what feeds my soul. I love to take photos, then use them in my art later.

Lura said...

of course my family and my friends feed my soul. but art has had an amazing effect on my life. 21 years ago i tried to commit suicide and the two things that helped to get me out of my six week mental hospital stay were art and letters from my kids. that was the first time art rescued me. the second time was while working in surgery for 20 years i fell at work. 4 cervical fusions later left me disabled. i took a suzi blu class and thru her i met elena the founder of charity wings. a light bulb went off, i could volunteer there and do something good in this world besides lay in bed, take pain pills, and drool. that was 3 years ago, i am now the assistant donation coordinator, so to say the least art has been a huge fuel to my soul. it still is everyday. this is an amazing opportunity to take an incredible class, my soul would be full. so many great teachers. thank you so much for this opportunity. xoxox

Lura said...

oops, i also posted to facebook. xoxo

Jeanne Turner McBrayer said...

Being outside enjoying nature, being with my family and friends, going to art museums and quilt shows, reading good books, creating something beautiful!

Bridget said...

What feeds my soul. Living the best that I can,being a blessing to friends and family. Spending time with my grandson fills joy in my heart.

Bev said...

hi Jodi loved your interview with Maisy, what feeds my soul is pouring out the images in my head onto canvas or my art journal its been my comfort zone that keeps me sane , messy paint and a brush in my hand and im happy ...

Stephanie said...

Art in any form feeds my soul. I love color, texture, pattern...and whether it's the act of actually creating, or reading about it, or seeing what others create...it just makes me darn happy. =)

Angela said...

Making art always feeds my soul, nature, family friends and taking classes with wonderful teachers also feeds my soul.

Angela said...

Shared, might have to do this with my friend Debbie, we could play together doing the classes.

shazza said...

My kids, family , friends & my animal fur babies and my art are my soul food. Without them who knows where id be. I started art after I lost a dealy loved cat- Dawson It also helps deal with the pain when its mild too so it helps on all levels. This class and range of teachers looks amazing. Thanks so much for the chance to win a spot in this wonderful class.

tutorial girl said...

This summer playing with colors and stitched after that is what my soul food is. I love to have dirty hands from colors, I'm super exited when my kids are in beds and I could play. I even don't watch TV...the best think is I could found a little time late at night every day, so I do this. But in the morning I want to continue......almost my new addiction. But it's fun, and chocolate free. And when I could buy myself a new pot of paint, better then new shoes. It’s so nice to bring at home something artsy new.

Creating art feeds my soul;as well as spending time with my sons and quiet walks in the woods with my hub and our boy,Chumley.

Through The Spice Rack said...

Great question- lots of things nourish my soul: music, quiet in nature, church, laughing, my cats :).

Morgan said...

When the world feels dark and dreary my dog, Juno, makes the difference. She is my 130lb Mastiff and I refer to her as my soul puppy (akin to having a soulmate). Morning walks along the beach give me time to slough off the sleepiness and prepare my mind and body for the upcoming day. Lastly (and most importantly!) my son who at 3 was diagnosed with autism is now getting ready for his first year at high school. Hanging out with him, watching the world through his eyes, is my happy place.

Morgan said...

Popping back to let you know I shared on my Facebook page :)

Heather Williams said...

I hope I'm not too late to enter!

I have many things that nourish my soul: time on the beach, creating in my little studio, walks in nature, especially, hand in hand w/ my husband & son, cooking/baking, meditation, & snuggling my kitty.

Thank you so much the super wonderful opportunity!! ~H♥~

Tonya Watson said...

The most important things that feed my soul is faith, family, friends, and colors that surround me in the world.

DogsMom said...

I may be too late, but wanted to still say thank you for this opportunity.
It means so much to so many that don't feel they can justify tuition for something to feed their own souls.

Tabitha said...

This class looks so fun! Thanks!

Jane Simons said...

As an artist who was disabled for 20+ yrs I'm finally getting my miracle to make art again...my soul was so thirsty, now being filled!

Norina said...

Family, friends, faith, nature, creating art, gardening, hiking, reading, theatre, cooking, music...all feed my soul. I would love to take your class and will post on FB, too. Thanks!
