Last Garden Digest for 2013.



Can you believe a whole year is almost done in 8 days? I am surprised that time past so quickly! Welcome to another edition of the Gardeners Digest. Every month the designers from 2peasinabucket.com create this wonderful and creative blog hop where we share our favorite products and inspiration and other lovely things. The list for this month's hop is as follows:

2Peas 
Paige Jill 
Celine 

Lisa D. 
Jen G. 
Shimelle 
Wilna (me!)
Lilith 





This month I will be looking back at what stood out for me this year personally!

The first thing is the "In the Mood to Scrap" series I was part of.  I will upload my last video end of the month which brings the total of videos I created for in the Mood to 15. I am so in love with these pages and I can honestly say that the idea of a mood board changed my approach to scrapbooking a whole bunch. I am so thankful to 2peas for making me a part of this.

Here is a playlist of of all those videos that I complied:



Secondly, my first artclass. This class has sold well over a 1000 spots and it's still selling good. I cannot be more happy and proud of this mammoth project that I tackled last December and January. The class went on sale in February and as the reviews came in, it started to sell more and more. What surprised me was how many spots sold with the second class last month. I am thankful beyond words for the gift of art that God gave me.



And last but not least, Artclass 2. This class was a bit harder for me to create mostly becuase I knew the amount of work required. But in the end, what makes it worthwhile is the gratitude of the students and the incredible love and appreciation shown for the content of the class. It really was a labour of love and believe it or not, but I am actually thinking of a third class. It really all depends if the second one does as well as the first one. :)






I am giving away a $20 gift voucher for 2peas. The shop is really awesome!! I am sure there will be something there that makes your heart beat a little faster!!

ETA: Carla from Utah won the give away!

Merry Christmas!

Love
Wilna Furstenberg

You are my fav GG, and I really want to thank you for a year of wonderful inspiration and videos. I had never used a mood board, thought it was a silly concept. You taught me it is a marvelous tool! Love it! Especially if you are in a scrapbooking rut. It is like challenging yourself.

Have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to more fun with you in 2014. Please come back :)

Wilna, one of the highlights of my 2013 was definitely discovering your work (I know, I must have been under a rock before :). I love both Art Classes so much, they are totally amazingly awesome. They have made me want to incorporate mixed media in every single layout and even try my hand at art journaling. Thanks so much and may 2014 bring you nothing but happiness and bring us Art Class 3 LOL

Michelle Y said...

I has been awesome and so educational and freeing to discover your work this year! I've learned a lot about my own style and have loved following along with your videos and art class.
