CRAFT Blog Hop & Giveaway!

For list of winners, click here.

Welcome to the CRAFT: Creating Reflective Art for Transformation Blog Hop! This event is brought to you by the team at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, the premier source for inspiration to explore your inner world. I’ll be leading a creative and meaningful workshop, using some of the latest and greatest products from our generous sponsors, at this intimate, boutique event right on the beach in beautiful Santa Monica, CA, November 11-13, 2011. You’ll spend a magical weekend focused on embracing who you truly are and gaining the skills, techniques and tools to use our craft to understand yourself more deeply on an ongoing basis.

My workshop will have you digging deep about the roles you play in life with a project called 'Double Agent'. This innovative mini album project will let you explore the faces you show the world, and the ones you don't. 

Think about the roles you play that you share with the world. Are you a mother, daughter, teacher, doctor? What about the parts of yourself that you don't show... are you a worrier, a daydreamer, a rebel, a gossiper? Learn a lot about yourself and feel more expressed. 


Three full days of crafting, creativity and camaraderie for only $450
(three consecutive monthly payments of $150 each.)

Spots are still available for this unique, pampering and heart-expanding getaway.

Linda, I'd like to dedicate a scrapbook to gratitude - is that an emotion? I feel it's an important and uplifting theme that could really showcase what we have to be thankful for everyday...

marilyn September 13, 2011 at 8:27 PM

mari September 13, 2011 at 8:45 PM

jengd September 14, 2011 at 1:10 PM  

I'd like to concentrate more on the good things in life. I've put down some of the more negative things trying to let them go but I need to finish up by replacing them with the good- happiness, joy, etc.

Jean September 14, 2011 at 1:24 PM  

What fun! Need to explore confidence!

thriftycrafter September 14, 2011 at 2:01 PM  

That's some class there won't be much room for anything but journalling on the page!

Melinda September 14, 2011 at 2:34 PM  

Fear, thats what I want to explore more of.

TracyTracy September 14, 2011 at 5:01 PM  

Courage. Or gratitude.

Cynthia B. September 14, 2011 at 8:54 PM  

I like the title of your workshop. Definitely thought-provoking about the lives we lead.
I'd like to explore self-confidence. Just tonight, I was wishing that my 9yo daughter had more of it. Of course, when I was her age, I was exactly the same way - it's a learned skill for me!

Betty-Ann September 15, 2011 at 6:24 AM  

For me, it would be cool to explore "fear" for a real change of pace...with Halloween coming, this shouldn't be too difficult!

Nance September 15, 2011 at 8:19 AM  

I would love to explore adventure where everything is new and there's a sense of satisfaction and happiness. I think this retreat is one fun adventure that i would love to go to. Thanks for the chance.

Abbey September 15, 2011 at 9:49 AM  

This sounds awesome. I am sort of looking for calm or focus and think that would be good, but continue to work through grief over my father's death so lots of emotions here.
