WOYWW – Life After Art

Life After Art - Book & Stamps

Happy What’s On Your Workspace to you! Last week, I shared that I am on the launch team for a fabulous book called Life After Art. Now that the book has been released, I’d like to tell you a little more about it!

Life After Art is written by artist and teacher Matt Appling! Matt designed the two one-of-a-kind stamps you see in the photo specifically for his book tour (aren’t they cool?) His book is based on the things he has observed and learned as an art teacher – and the lessons he wants to impart in his students to prepare them for “life after art”.

I would like to personally invite you to Enter the Life After Art Giveaway! The giveaway is open worldwide through April 12 (but enter early, so you don’t forget!) This is a book that creative folk will love and “non-creative” folk need to read. It’s about more than creativity – it’s about life!

Peacock Box - Interior

I also shared my Peacock box last week and that was a huge hit! Several people wanted a peek inside so I am happy to oblige. As you can see, it is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside! If you missed last week’s post and want to learn more about my Peacock box, check out WOYWW – New Stash!

Paper Pusher

Now for Tsunami time. This week he has truly taken over the desk – but fortunately, it is my husband’s workspace he has invaded! If you think he looks startled and guilty – you have a good eye! For the whole scoop (and there is a story behind this photo) – be sure to visit Wordless Wednesday and read about the Paper Pusher!

Have a fabulous week and a Happy WOYWW!

That book sounds awesome and I shall def check it out. Your cat is sssooo cute.
