Effy's Book of Days - 2012

I am really loving Facebook. I'm still a relative 'newbie' there but I'm having a ball discovering so many new, interesting people and re-connecting with others not seen since high school (way back when).

I am an unashamed FB creeper and honest enough to admit it. I'll be reading someone's status and corresponding comments and find someone that sounds interesting so next thing you know I'm over on their page 'creeping' on them to read more. In my mind creeping is not creepy. I think it's a form of flattery that you find someone interesting enough to want to know more. I am more than happy to have anyone 'creep' on my page - stop in, stay awhile - i'll put the coffee on!

One of the new people I've found on FB is Effy Wild. Effy is wonderfully talented artist, a self-proclaimed mystic and all around amazing person. She is offering a free, year-long art journal/memory keeper class starting January 1, 2012 called Effy's Book of Days. What a huge and generous commitment!

I signed up for the class a few days ago and included with the welcome letter were 2 links to videos showing different journal options. I chose to alter a book (my first altered book) and got it finished this morning.

this is the front cover

and this is the back cover.

We are also to choose a word for the year. I chose the word "intention". I've never been a good goal setter but this past year have realized that by setting small goals and keeping my mind on them they are attainable. Like the quote on the back cover says "Our intention creates our reality". I intend to be a better artist and a better person in 2012.

Thank you Effy Wild for your generosity - I look forward to soaking up everything you share with us this year!
