The In-between Week

It just so happens this week, the in-between week, is my very most favorite week of the year.
Every year.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
And I know I've said it before. 

I like it because after the rush of the season is over, there seems to be a calmness in the house.
I like it because after the dishes are done, the wrapping papers are picked up and out of the house, the house is clean.
I like it because for a few days, there are leftovers and no cooking.

I like it because everyone left happy.
Santa did good. 

I like it because it seems like the calmness is also present in my thinking space.
For the most part, the old year is over and the new one hasn't started yet. 

I'm wishing you a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

All Norah'S Art, my Ning classroom network will be closing July 31, 2015.

Before that happens, I want to offer all of my current online classes at a huge discount starting now!

All classes are discounted at least 50 percent. You can access class information by clicking on the page buttons above or by visiting my classroom network: All Norah'S Art.


I have made a huge decision about my Ning classroom network. 
You may or may not know that Ning has and is changing their ways. 
I have had plenty notice of this and plenty of time to consider what I wanted to do. 

However, the decision has been very hard to make.
Big decisions are always hard for me and I typically swing back and forth from to-do or not-to-do.

Even though I have had many great ideas for new workshop offerings, I just haven't had the energy or I should say passion to go forth with them. 

I have finally realized that this decision hanging over my head is stifling my energy. 

So, once and for all, I made the decision to give up my Ning network at my annual renewal day of July 31, 2015. 

I decided to go out with a bang!
A bang of offering all the classes for the next several months for a huge discount. 

You will find all of the class descriptions and paypal buttons on the Main page of All Norah'S Art, as well as, here on my blog pages.
You can click on the class buttons in the top page heading or by clicking on the picture icon of each class in the right sidebar.

Audio about Signatures

While changing all the paypal buttons and making sure the classrooms were in order, I came across a bit of audio that I added at the end of one of my favorite classes, Faces In Collage.
I'm sharing this snip of audio today with you because it is something that I feel really strong about. 
(hopefully, the audio embed works)
If you are reading in a reader, you may need to click over to the blog to see and play the audio.
