If you've ever taken a class (live or at BPS) with Kolette Hall, then I think you'll understand how tickled we are to announce her as our 2009 yearlong instructor. The "Big Picture" in Big Picture Scrapbooking can mean different things to different people depending on the context of the class and the instructor's objectives and perspective … most often (to me) the big picture is simply the life we celebrate and learn to appreciate and improve through the creative process of scrapbooking. Several months ago, I asked Kolette to think about providing a yearlong experience at BPS and to come back to me with some ideas for a theme or overall message — she later shared her thoughts and explained that more than anything she wants to help women craft a better life. Hello. How cool is that?
A Life Well Crafted will be twelve months of the insightful instruction you've come to expect from Kolette — and you'll be able to enjoy her class on so many levels. I hope you'll take some time soon to read through the class descriptions and decide which option is right for you.
As a quick overview and in response to a few general questions we've received …
Will there be projects? Yep. beautiful, meaningful and FUN monthly projects to support each month's principle, as well as a layout of the month, inspired by a song and designed to become a unique album at year's end.
Will there be inspirational voice messages? Uh-huh. from both Kolette and her husband, Jason (an amazing motivational speaker)
I love the quotes Kolette has shared in her classes. Will there be more quotes? Absolutely. In fact, Kolette has designated the 2nd week of each month as Quote Week and will share daily emails with links to exclusive downloadable quotes that can be collected and used in a variety of ways.
There will be all this and so much more and for the first time ever there will be a version of this class for your "non-crafty" friends and relatives. The "audio only" version of this class would make a wonderful gift for a friend, sister, mother — anyone that wants to experience the inspiration without the expectation of creating something.
So … let's get on with the give away shall we?
