The bad and the good: An accident and a giveaway

The bad news: I was in a car accident last Tuesday. It wasn't anything too serious but I ended up with a hurt neck and my arm on a sling. I thank God my children were not in the car with me at that moment so nothing happened to them, but still I haven't felt good enough to sit down and work. I'm making myself rest during the mornings where my little ones are at school, but in the afternoons it's kind of hard trying to recover when your 2 year old pulls you from the collar and tries to move you like a puppet :P

The good news: Remember that I told you I was going to be a teacher on the incredible year-long online class Life book 2013? Well, I have one spot to give away to a lucky winner. Yes, you read correctly. A spot for an entire year of workshops and inspiration.

Join me and 20 more amazing teachers who are all gearing up to share our mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! The class is themed around self-development and healing, and you'll be creating a minimum of 2 loose mixed media art journal pages per month (through a minimum of 2 lessons a month) which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)!"


If you haven't signed up yet, here's your opportunity to win one spot.
And if you signed up and you win, you can get a refund or offer the spot you won to someone who really needs it, that happened a lot last year. (Thanks a lot for your generosity!)

All you have to do is share this address:

on your Facebook, Twitter or Blog and leave a comment here on my blog letting me know where you shared it to enter the giveaway. Winner will be announced on October 31st (It's a great Halloween treat!)

Good Luck and see you there!!!

Hi Danita

Sorry to hear about your accident... hope you are fully recovered soon.

I'm so glad you are a teacher on Life Book 2013 I am already signed up. (So no need to include me in your giveaway) I am doing Life Book 2012 and loving it.

I ordered one of your sweet little calendars with the wooden block a couple of weeks ago and I'm so looking forward to its arrival!

Best wishes

Greetings Danita! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great workshop! I've posted it to my Facebook timeline ( and tweeted it @aliprice_art. Blessings to you!
Danita, I am so sorry about what you are going through. That really sucks!!! I love your art, I took your online workshop and it helped me through a really hard time recently. I had a baby and then I found out I had Thyroid cancer. I finally created a painting about it, which I posted on the facebook page for the workshop. It was really therapeutic. So thank you! I posted about the giveaway on my blog:
Get well soon! You should make a little painting with a girl with her arm in a cast and the neck brace. That would be kinda cute!!! LOL!
I think this is an amazing chance for whoever wins...I shared the link here
And hope that someone really deserving wins!
Get well soon!

Hi Danita, hope you get to feeling better. What a scare!! I posted your link on my blog:

Also I have a question. I just got the Somerset Holiday magazine and the adorable ornaments you made said to "Pour the plaster gauze"... Is this correct? I've never seen any that you pour, but it wraps. Thanks
This is an amazing giveaway, Danita
And if I win I would like to present my sister Rebecca Howell-Gibson with the gift. Her email
And I am so sorry to hear of your car accident. Hope you get well soon and back to creating. You are such an inspiration to many in blogland.

In case you have not yet chosen, I would so love to participate in the life book series but cannot afford it. Am on year 2 of unemployment and am trying with all I have to get my art biz off the ground. I have blogged, facebooked and twittered the link. Because of the storm, we haven't had any internet service this week before now. Lots and lots of snow here! Thank you!
Cheri Glover
I too would love to have a chance to win this course. I hope you are healing well. It takes time and energy, so be patient with yourself. I continue to heal from a brain trauma injury I received over 8 months ago. It is hard, but I am getting there. I have not posted about life book 2013 on my blog yet, but will do so when I post next!...either today or tomorrow.
Thanks so much for offering the give away, I am sure it will be enjoyed and very appreciated by whomever is the winner.
