For those of you out traveling this season (that includes me), safe, stress free travels!
Thank you, Corey!
Someone sent me an email yesterday asking the difference between my A Prompt A Day and My A Life Made By Hand class. Here's what I wrote back to her-
They're two totally different classes. It's a brand new class as I do not like to teach the same class repetitively. I have a lot of repeat students every month (both in person classes and online) so I need to make sure that I am offering something new and unique. My students really do push me and I want to teach classes that push them.
First off, the new class is much cheaper. $50 for 6 months. That's the one that grabs everyone off the bat.
People thought you had to keep up with A Prompt A Day and do it daily, but that was never the case. It's the same thing with A Life Made By Hand. There are 181 new journaling (yes, writing) prompts that are new and designed to make you think. I think they're more introspective. There are new writing prompts in ALMBH.
There are new collage techniques. NO painting. We're doing what I call "Painting with paper" where the focus is all collage. There are 25 collage techniques on the board. All different, all new.
I will be doing video demos as well. There are 5 on the board now with more to follow.
There are two different "How to make your own journal" pdfs on the board and one video, in case you do want to make your own journal by hand.
There are thousands of different prompts and ways of looking at things. I've found that out in my 12 years of teaching.
This class is specifically set up so that you can do a page in 15 minutes or less. You can do them daily or you can do them at your own leisure (for example, you could have your own mini retreat and do the prompts over a weekend or something like that). The prompts aren't hard, but they're not simple either. They are thoughtful, introspective and designed to make you think in new ways.
By the way, nothing has a date on it. The writing prompts are numbered as 1 to 181. The collage prompts are diagrams that are the size of 2x3" ATC size cards that you can cut out and carry in your wallet. Nothing says January 1st, 2nd, etc... I set it up that way so that no one would panic if they missed a date, that no one would think they had to do this daily (even though I do encourage it, but again work as you need to). It is stress free and fun.
There is some basic 411 info (paper I use, pen info, some other things too) on the board that I've copied over from A Prompt A Day, but it's meant to be a simple FAQ for my classes since I tend to use the same materials, but I approach my pages in a different way each time.
Hope this helps...
