    I would love to win a spot in the class – to get a push to using the supplies I’ve amassed over the last couple years. they are just gathering dust in the closet and this class would make me get them out and put them to work. I make greeting cards so I seem to find an excuse to not do mixed media. If I’m in the class I’ll have to put it on the front burner with the greeting cards.
    I’ve signed up for your newsletter, went to your FB page and “liked” it (hope I marked it correctly so you can tell I did).

  2. Karyle

    I received Life Book 2015 as a Christmas Gift last year, it has changed my life, It makes my spirit soar. I can’t wait for my Monday email to see the new lesson. It’s like Christmas every week. I have never considered myself an artist but Life Book has shown me that I am. Tam and her guest teachers have such gentle and giving spirits, it’s an honor to be able to learn from them. I can’t imagine my life without Life Book. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot for this awesome journey called Life Book.

  3. Kim Smith

    I would love to win a spot on LifeBook 2016 because I have no source of income and am, unfortunately, having to apply for disability due to health issues.

  4. Kristin Langlais

    Lifebook has been my oasis in the crazy life I have. I’m constantly catering to others and spending my time doing things for everyone else (which I love. I love being there for my friends and family” but I need to learn to take time for myself. Lifebook always amazes me with it’s community and support and the inspiration it fills me with everyday. I need it for my soul. Thank you for this opportunity! 🙂

  5. Shel

    Would love, love, love to win a spot in Lifebook 2016! Can’t even imagine the amount of teaching and artistry that will be part of this class. Thank you so much!

  6. Connie Rasmussen

    Oh… this is wonderful Gillian – a Life Book and with you among the teacher! How lucky can one be. I would so much love to win a place in order to go on with experiments day by day. Also, such a great idea to start the new year making a year book to look back at.
    Since I’m ‘early retired’ from my job (last year) I’m on a budget now and also not allowed to sell any of my art until March 2017 – and instead of being irritated etc I’ve decided to spend the time till then on experimenting, practicing and learning to grow as an artist.

  7. Tania Bain

    Lifebook is an amazing opportunity to be able to learn from a group of talented teachers over a period of a year. The great thing about LB is that you don’t only get to learn from the teachers but also from all the students who take part.
    You get to discover new and exiting art techniques, find your artist voice, and even find your true self and what makes you and your creative spirit so unique and special.
    So yes I would love to be a part of LB 2016 :”)

  8. Suze Rose

    What a wonderful year of art this will be with such a talented line up of creative teachers.
    A dream come true would be to win a place to join this amazing community of artists!

  9. chantal scheffel

    I would love to win a spot on lifebook 2016, because i’m eager to learn new techniques, and get new inspiration from all you talentes teachers. I couldn’t share you’re facebook post, because i could’nt find it.

  10. Lin Mujaj

    I ”discovered” art two years ago and now cannot imagine my life without it. I would love to win a spot on Lifebook 2016 to learn different techniques and styles from all the different teachers.

  11. Tina

    I would love to continue my Life Book journey for another year but changes in my circumstances make it impossible financially. Winning this spot would allow me to continue to be a part of the amazing journey of Life Book, thank you for this chance.

  12. Kim

    I would love to win a spot to participate in Lifebook 2016. A mix up of beautiful artists, many of which I follow by blog, fb or newsletters because I love their art and infectious desire to create. As I limp along trying to find my own voice and vocabulary I realize it doesn’t matter that I have no formal art education. If it is there it will come good or bad. But it helps to see other artists style and successes as well as their messes (if they share that!). I know it is true that when the student is ready the teacher will appear.

  13. Prerna

    Your art is indeed soulful. It would be such a pleasure to learn from you in Life Book 2016. Life book is a wonderful platform to connect and share and learn and make your week joyful. Its a soul feeding experience. Much love and light. So look forward to 2016.

  14. Teresa in California

    So, far, I am posting the giveaway for all of the blogger/artists who are teaching in Life Book 2016, as that is one requirement you have given for your own one spot giveaway. I have ‘tagged’ you on Facebook, and have shared on my page.
    When I saw Jeanne Oliver’s post when she was able to go to your Scotland retreat, I was swept off my feet! I felt like your artwork resonated with my soul, as I am of Scots-Irish blood. It’s always in the blood! So, yes, you are one of the main reasons I truly want to take Life Book 2016. I am partial to the deep feelings of kindred spirits! Thank you for a spot in your giveaway.

  15. Kuma

    Well, Lifebook 2016 looks so exciting and it has such a great line up of teacher–that’s why I’d love to be apart of it. And I love the underling theme of healing work.

  16. Michelle Jaramillo

    I was blessed enough to be able to participate in Lifebook 2012 and I enjoyed it immensely. as a Novice artist I learned so much. However, I’ve been unable to sign up since due to finances, art block, or life just not cooperating. I’ve recently started to art journal again and I’d love to win a spot and continue my journey!

  23. Lynn Noone

    I am newly retired, and want to follow my dream. A spot in LifeBook 2016 would be a wonderful start! I love your style, and would love to be your student.

  24. Ellie

    Winning a spot in the Lifebook classroom would be marvelous because I admire each and every one of the teaching artists. I really enjoy learning new techniques and styles and how wonderful to be able to sample each of the teaching artists accomplishments. The best of the best all rolled into one class, what an exciting artful journey this would be!

  25. kvgr

    Hi! 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 🙂
    (p.s. I liked/shared on FB, my name there is Johanna Johanna)

  26. Tracy

    I have heard and seen so many great things that is Life Book. I would relish in being able to be part of such a wonderful and awesome community, and would love to learn and be inspired by all the talented teachers and students!

We are both retired and are on a small budget.Another reason is I just recently found out I have the beginnings of dementia and have been a little down and out. I love art and mostly making art in the mixed media form.I love to work with paper,paints, stains ect. It brings Me joy, relaxation, peace,and stimulates all the areas My Doc. says is needed.Thanks for listening to this old Grannie rant on.

  37. Krista Tannahill

    Hi Gillian – I entered because I want to take my art to the next level. My focus is on faces and I want to learn how to layer and add depth to the faces I create. Your artwork has these great shadows with shading and depth. I would love to learn more about your process and how I can add this kind of technique to my artwork.


  38. Tanja

    I’d love to win, have no money, am so ready for a change, all apply but aren’t convincing. I surrender and have faith in whatever comes my way or not. However wins, I hope you can use it.

  39. LeeAnn Gibson

    Thank you very much for the chance to win a spot! I would love the chance to learn from such an amazing lineup of instructors!

  40. Karen Leigh

    I have not done Lifebook before but have always looked with interest to see who the instructors are. I was really excited to see your name on the list for this year. I was not able to get in on your classes in Saluda this year(I live only a half hour away ) so I would relish any other opportunity I could get the learn from you. I have signed up for newsletter, liked FB page and shared your post(even though FB would not let me tag you in it.)

  41. Michele Redman

    What a wonderful opportunity. I don’t want to be greedy as I am already familiar with Gillian’s outstanding work, but I would be blessed to win a spot in this exciting workshop with so many talented artists.

  42. Aino-Mari Kämppi

    I did all requested, only tagging didn’t work for some reason. 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 need some psychological support that Life Book tends to give to people attending.

  43. Fiona

    First of all, congrats on being asked to teach in LB next year. I have to say I’m not surprised Tam chose you. I LOVE your art – what I’ve seen on here and on your FB page is truly inspiring.
    I HAVE to do LB 2016. I’m currently doing it for the first time this year, and it has helped me grow so much, both artistically and personally – and I have made a couple of really good friends because of it. The community is so caring and I just can’t imagine 2016 without LB in my life – sitting waiting for the lessons on Mondays has become a ritual for me and I am a creature of habit. If I were lucky enough to win, it would be an awesome birthday present (although my bd is actually on September 19th), so thank you so much for this opportunity!

  44. Mar ja

    Oh I would love to win a LB2016, to learn much from so many great teachers. I will learn alot different technique , a way to devollop my self. Thanks for this.

    I am in my 60’s and have recently discovered Art journaling and mixed media. I would love the opportunity to explore and learn different techniques. They say it’s never too late to learn new things and I am proof of that. Thank you.

    Gillian, I would be in heaven to take Lifebook for so many reasons…to be learning and surrounded by such talented artists and teachers…to expand my knowledge and really mold my own niche with mixed media. Lifebook would keep me going weekly, while busy with work, family and life. It would keep me motivated and productive, and take me to places I’ve yet to be. And to learn from artists all over the world. I am trying so hard to win a spot!! Thank you for the chance!

    I signed up for your newsletter and “liked” your Facebook page. However, I did not find a FB posting for Life Book 2016. I’ll check back later to see if it is up on FB. Love your artwork. And I’m so hoping to win a spot this year in the Life Book 2016 class. It is the only way I will be able to take the class.

    I would love to be part of Life Book 2016 because I have seen the great art work created by a friend in 2014 and I believe I will benefit from the lessons learned for my own personal healing journey. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot and learn from some of the best teachers ever. And congratulations on being selected to teach for Life Book 2016.

    Gillian, I am so excited that you’re a part of Life Book 2016. You’re among many other teachers I respect as well. The combing of doing Art along with health and healing appeals to me as I know working on those things together can only help to improve my life, well-being and creativity!

Thank you for the chance to win!

    I ‘m already subscribed on your newsletter, and I already follow and like you on fb….so all this is done. But just in case I could get a spot in this course…it’s simple. Because I love your work, and because I’m already signed in your November class sure I want to see more of your great gorgeous stuff.

    I’ve liked your facebook page but I can’t find the post I have to share!

    I would like to be part of LB2016 because it’s an opportunity to express myself through my art.

    Gillian, so happy to “discover” you via this wonderful blog hop. I have watched Lifebook from a distance over the years and would be thrilled to be able to join the fun in 2016.
    Thank-you for the opportunity.

    I would so love to win a seat in the 2016 class! I am taking it now and have been using the journaling and mixed media art technique to work through grief and move forward. We cant afford for me to sign up for a class right now so….fingers and toes crossed! Thank you for the opportunity!

    Hi Gillian! I would love to win a spot in the LB 2016 class. The last few years have been very difficult and plagued with personal losses, but it’s time to turn a corner and I can’t think of a better way to start a new year than to start it with the journey through LB with other like minded souls. I signed up for your news letter and shared LB 2016 on my FB time line and in the FB public forum. Congratulations on becoming a member of the LB teaching staff and thank you for the opportunity to enter. XOX
