Our Final Class Give-Away!!!

What a wonderful weekend I had!! I can't tell you how very much I needed time away with a dear friend. We talked, cried and encouraged one another. We laughed so hard tears ran down our face. We shared inspiring stories, read scriptures and prayed. It was exactly what my soul needed at this time in my life.

 There really is nothing quite like a good friend.

Me, Lisa and Eva

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.  It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.  We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.  ~Albert Schweitzer

The sweet woman in the red shirt above is Eva. She was already a friend of Lisa's and now a friend of mine. What a strong woman Eva is! Talk about  a Brave Girl! I will be sharing more about my trip later in the week.

We have LOTS of soccer this week. 

That's #31...my Emma girl. She's a freshman on the Lady Hounds Soccer Team. 

A Defender.

So tough and strong-willed my Emma girl. {more on that later, too}

My latest photo. I had to see what my hair looked like today. Nothing works like a photo ya' know? 

At last it's growing. So happy. Liking it better...

I just can't say enough about the last 6 weeks. I am soooo grateful for each of you that participated in my Mind.Body.Soul. e-course. It has been such a delight getting to know you through your artwork. 

To answer a few questions...YES, we will keep the Face Book group. I would love to see us continue our friendships, our dreams and our art. I am thinking of continuing with more Art Journal prompts in our group. What do you think??

We have one more give away!! 

I went shopping on my retreat and found a few treats.

The pad of paper that says Autumn Collection on it is from Daisy D's. It's a complete 6x6 paper collection along with cute die-cuts like this....

A complete kit!

 Along with that here are some beautiful papers for your collage projects.

Have you heard of Thirty-One? They make the CUTEST bags!! I bought one just for YOU!

Perfect for your pens and pencils or little bits of ribbon, buttons, word strips and lots more!!

For your chance to WIN these goodies please leave a comment in THIS post by answering the following question...

What kind of classes would you like to see me offer in the future??

I hope you continue to stop by Words of Me Project often. I promise more inspiration is on it's way. So many stories and art to share with you!


  1. I have enjoyed this course, and would love for you to continue with prompts, if you would like to! Thank you for the entry for these lovely gifts!

  2. Thanks so much for doing this course! I also find the prompts to be inspirational and open-ended enough for lots of fun art exploration. Thanks for the opportunity to win! -- Tina

  3. I'm glad you had such a great weekend with your friend, there's nothing that can compare when two kindred spirits get together to renew friendships and creating memories.

    I definitely would like the journaling prompts to continue. I've done all of the journaling with our course, just need to put it to art now. HOpe to have time this week to work on it.

    Thanks again Leslie for this great course, for your heart, soul and all the effort you gave us!

  4. I would LIKE to see the group keep going.. I didn't use even CLOSE to half my journal, and look forward to filling it with more "mind. body. soul."!! I'm up for anything you suggest as far as art and/or journaling prompts go, Leslie, and thank you for offering your time and dedication to this project. I've really enjoyed it. ((hugs)) ~tina

  5. I am not finished with my assignments but I sure am enjoying being part of this course! This has been FANTASTIC! I would love to see more of this kind of course - where we are all connecting with stuff that comes up in our daily lives while we strive to live our best lives. I LOVED that you gave us a word or a quote and we could journal and art around that. I also LOVE the combo of journal prompts with the art prompts - I think it really helps me write in my journal more often (instead of just doing the art). This was tons of fun Leslie and I'm not through with it yet! THANK YOU!!!

  6. i would love to see more art journal prompts in the future.. great for days when i'm stuck!

    as for future classes, i do enjoy having questions/topics to write about... i am always ready to make art but it's fun to have a specific message or question in mind as i work. i liked the dream wheel - really got me thinking about why i do what i do & what the bigger picture is.

    thanks for all the inspiration!! :)

  7. Hey you...i have read your posts and even tho my time restraints with home schooling and programming Jason meant no me time i have still enjoyed your words and i am not a Facebook girl really...and what to do more e courses?...i really don't know...you have the gift of writing so maybe more of that..its anzav day here in Australia so i am off for celebrating...xxx

  8. I would love to see different technique tutorials.

  9. Thanks so much for putting this ecourse together! I have learned alot about myself and have made some great connections as well. I'd like to see the prompts continue and maybe someday I'll get them all finished. haha

    Come and check out our 101010 Project Blog Hop put together by Robin Norgren!


  10. I am so happy ya decided to keep the group open! I've had a blast working on the promts. I am in need of more prompts so I can fill the rest of my Mind.Body.Sould book up. lol I think anything you come up with, Will be wonderful. Ya a very creative soul.
    Hugs, Poe

  11. Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend! I'm so happy to hear when a "sister" finds love and comfort like that. I've had a wonderful time and will continue to share my Smash book pages in the group. I had a blast with the workshop and look forward to more from you.

  12. I'm so glad that you had a refreshing weekend...sounds wonderful! The papers you are offering in your giveaway are lovely...I love butterflies! I am happy that the Facebook group will continue. I've been a little quiet over there, but enjoy dropping in once in a while. Any kind of workshops/prompts related to art journaling, collage, drawing, and painting are always welcomed!

  13. Sounds like a wonderful time - and much needed by all of you I'm sure!
    Thank you for providing such insight and inspiration in the last 6 weeks (wow, they did go fast!) - I really loved the journal prompts too, and have one more set to go to complete my journal. (I decided to rip out any extra pages so that it could be a book in and of itself) - I agree - more of the same! Inspiration, motivation and kindness - you wear it well, xoxoxo

  14. Thanks for this course!!! It came along just at a time when I needed it. I would love to see you offer more Art Journaling classes!!!!

  15. I LOVE your blog! It was so nice meeting you at the scrapbooking event in Columbia,and I very much look forward to a future of reading about your art. Yeah to Lisa and the Food Bank for bringing us together.

  16. love the promps, like those in future
