I found Liv Lane's blog Choosing Beauty when I was pregnant with Kyle and worried about some of the complications we thought I might have with him. Liv posted "What I wore in the operating room." and took the time to write me a note back when I commented on her post. It was about a beautiful beaded birthing necklace that her friends made for her for to wear in the delivery via c-section of her second son after a not so great to say the least, delivery of her first son. That post and her response to me really touched me. Liv makes beautiful, uplifting art as well. And she works in her "Dudio" (that's a dining room turned studio). I have one of those too! :)
Long story short, I have been wanting to do something more creative with this blog for quite sometime. I want to touch others lives through art, doodles and calligraphy. I want to share my life experiences and hope that they will help someone else. I want to live the Erma Bombeck quote you see under my header. So, when I saw Liv was giving away tuition to her ecourse, How to Build a Blog You Truly Love, I thought, "What the heck, I have nothing to lose!" I entered her giveaway 8 hours before it ended (the same day I posted "She did it anyway!" and woke up the next morning to an email that said "You Won" in the subject line! Thus the title of this post. I would say that was a "God Wink" if I ever experienced one!
I am really excited. This ecourse is chalk full of information and I get to network with other bloggers while I am learning and growing my blog. Woohoo! Today was the first day of the 6 week course. Already I can see I am really going to enjoy this.
Soul Restoration has not been finished yet though and that is also a very good class for me right now. I need to finish it for myself and because I promised my sister that her generous Christmas gift would not be wasted. So even though I am behind I will complete that class as well.
So much to learn. I am jumping in whole hearted with both feet!
You can read more details about Liv's awesome ecourse HERE. Registration will end April 30 if you are interested. Be sure to check out her blog while you are there. I'm sure you will understand why I am so excited!
