Spring - Where is my sunshine?

So far this spring has been wet and fairly sunless, which for me is sort of depressing. I'm still waiting for my sunshine and 70's+ weather. I have to admit though that everything is very green and lush and my lilacs have never been fuller or more fragrant!

In the meantime, I've been trying something new and totally adventurous for me. I've been taking some wonderful tele-classes from Laura Hollick of Soul Art Studio

Below is the cover I made for Laura's 8 week 'Create Yourself' phone class. It was a very exciting and insightful class for me. There was a lot to take in and I'm still digesting what I learned. The great thing about the class (besides being able to attend class in the comfort of your own home!) is that Laura records the tele-class in an mp3 format and sends you the link to the recording, a full overview of the course and assignment by the next day! So not only do you get to take the class the first time,  you have access to this information to go over as many times as you like, each time expanding your previous insights!!

I'm currently taking the '21 day Creative Cleanse' (my 'mothers day's  present from my sister - WOOHOO!). I will post my new journal cover as soon as it's completed.


  1. Your cover art from 'Create Yourself' is absolutely stunning Deanna!
    I can't wait to see what you create during the Creativity Cleanse.

    from my creative heart to yours,

  2. Hi- just to say thanks for dropping by my blog.

    Ditto with 1970s teenage age- personally I feel prehistoric!

    Have a lovely weekend,
