52 Weeks is almost here!

Oh girls I can't believe the response to my e-class..."Being Me". Sooo crazy excited!!! I have been trying to visit everyone's blogs and/or leave a message for you. Some of you are hard to get hold Just know I tried!! answer a few questions...

The only thing you really need on this journey is an open and willing heart. An art journal would be great along with either a notebook or some kind of writing journal. Of course paints and pens and little bits of this and that will add to the fun:)

I get my art journals at Wal-Mart or you can find them at any craft store. They run anywhere from 5 to 20 dollars. I use the mid-size ones generally which are about the size of an 8x10 photo.

Each Sunday night/Monday morning I will post that week's theme. You can find that here, on my blog. I will ALWAYS put the link on my Facebook page Mind.Body.Soul. If you haven't joined this please. This Facebook page is also where we will share our pages, discuss, etc.

Throughout the class I will be shariing photos and inspiration on Instagram. If you want to follow me there click here.

This class is completely FREE. I am just excited to bring this to you and just know you will grow and become even better!!! Please share with your friends, in your art circles, etc. I appreciate all you have done so far!! Don't forget to grab a cute blog button on the top left. My darling friend Leanne made that for us.

Cannot wait till we begin!!

Oh and if you have anymore questions...just leave it in the comment section or my facebook page.

Are YOU ready for 52 Weeks?!!?

Happy day to you girls!! It's been so very long since I sat a computer and just typed. Thanks to my Mom who invited me over this afternoon. Our computer will be fixed in a few more days...but I just couldn't wait any longer:)

In just a few more days my NEW and FREE and AMAZING e-class begins!! This Monday, June 3rd "Being Me: 52 Weeks of Soul Searching and Loving Me" starts and I can't wait!! This course is straight from the heart, Girls. I am putting every little piece of ME in this class. The idea came about because I was sick and tired of looking in the mirror and seeing a stranger look back. When in the world did I become so frumpy and cynical and mad all the time?? Where had the fun and perky and sweet Leslie gone?? My energy  had all but vanished, eating everything in sight and not caring AND my creativity has been at an all-time low.

This is NOT the way I want to live the next half of my life!!

Girls, this class was inspired by several of my favorite authors including...Jennifer Louden, Cheryl Richardson, Gail McMeekin and Sarah Ban Breathnach to name a few. Years ago when I was at a loss as to where my life was going it was these women I turned to for guidance and support. Over the past 6 months I have pulled their books out once again in hopes of finding some much needed answers in my life. While reading from Cheryl's book "Life Makeover" it dawned on my that I should be putting this all down in my art journal. During the making of my first page I realized that this would make a perfect e-class. I set about picking dates, writing it and really making sure this was something I wanted to commit to. I mean let's face it...52 weeks is a very loooong time to do anything. But I knew deep in my heart that I am not the only woman that needs something like this...there are hundreds of us that need to makeover our lives. And since my WORD this year is TRUE and I promised myself I would listen to my Heart...I knew this is what I had to do!!

"Being Me" is for anyone wanting to add more light in their life. Be happier. Be healthier. Just Be. You will need a new art journal for this journey as well as a notebook or hard bound journal to jot notes in and answer questions. Just so you know I am a notebook kind of girl...spiral

Each week will have a Theme. Some of them include..."Making Lists", "Give yourself time", "Procrastination" and "What Do you long for?". I will have them posted either late Sunday night or early Monday morning. We will work one week on each theme...making journal pages, sharing in our facebook forum and doing anything else you are inspired to do (eat better, walk, clean out a closet, etc.).

This class is 100% free. Please share with your friends, on facebook, in your creative circles, etc. I want as many women taking this as I can!! We can all learn so much from each other!!:)

You do not need to sign-up...but it would be great to know how many of you right now are planning on joining us. Please let me know in the Comment section:)

Oh, not get overwhelmed. You DO NOT have to do all 52 weeks!! You don't even have to art journal...just take the information and USE it in your life!!

And one more sorry for the new Comment thing...I hated putting that on here where you have to type letters and numbers before you comment but I was getting weird comments (SPAM) and it was for now that will stay on:)

Girls...spread the word!! See you Sunday night!!! YAY!

PS...Please take my cute blog button that my friend Leanne made just for me!!! I would love for you to share!!:)
