Lourdes said...

Anna!!! thanks for the chance to win this on-line class!...It's wonderful!

I love to see the final result of a handmade project: because you start with some pieces which don't fit at the beginning, and then...after you work, you have a little wonderful piece of art in your hands. This is what I love the most about creating!

I hope to meet you in Barcelona in september!

Regards

Lourdes

Janet said...

thanks for the chance to win. This looks like a very creative class. What I Love most about creating is that I forget about everything else that's going on, and dive right into my project.

Bella said...

Creating is good for the soul! I can let my hair down and just be me. No one asks any questions and you don't have to live up to any one else's expectations. After a session at my desk creating, I am a nicer person to be with.

I loved your Ustream the other evening, I could so relate to the Bermuda Triangle thing going on, that is my desk to a T. I can loose things just sitting still!

Can't wait for this on line class.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Riikka said...

Hmm... what would be the best part. I love to see the progress while I work. Start with something and end up in a completely different thing. Creating is a way to empty my mind and just have fun. Relaxation for body and mind. :)

Thanks for the chance to take part!

Linda Cain said...

Creating art is like a breath of fresh air. When the project is completed, there is no other feeling on earth that brings that certain satisfaction. Art is as much a sustainable life requirement as breathing.

Kate said...

I would love to win a class! I think creating helps me relax and unwind. With two little boys running around I need my sanity and creating art does that for me. I love to make something beautiful. It gived me a sense of accomplishment.

Robin said...

what a great give away. I just started following on Twitter since your Prima show - which was fabulous! I love creating things because I am always so surprised how pretty things turn out. I absolutely love the end results. And I love collecting things that I can use in a piece. I think I have been collecting my whole life and now I have potential purpose for this stuff (junk lol).

LindaBrun said...

Sue said...

Hello
I would love to win a place on this on-line class, I do love your creations, and how you add such wonderful 3 dimensional elements, and make them all work without it being cluttered.
What do I love about creating? Everything; from the moment I sit in my chair and pick up a piece of paper... my thought processes take over, I play and play until I like what I see. With me there are no preconceived ideas, I like to experiment with different media, not all of them work but most do. Rules? what rules, I break the rules Ha. I like to get inky and my desk is messy but it is loved, it is a place where I escape and nurture my creativity, this is what makes me happy; I enjoy every moment in my craft room.
Thank-you for the chance, I hope I am lucky.
Smiles:)
Sue

Kim said...

Creating helps my spirit and my soul, it gives me freedom and helps me to see the beauty about me everyday!

Figs said...

What I love most about creating is that it is a chance to get away from the routine of life and give myself some time out for me.

jerseytjej said...

Creating something out of an emotion is one of the best feelings in the world. Creativity is not only driven by happiness...

Jill said...

LOVE the feeling of satisfaction when i get my hands dirty and just go with the flow.

die amelie said...

Creating is my way of defining myself everytime anew. I find traces of me in every line I draw, in every stroke of the brush, in every way I try to visualize how I see the world around me and what effects it has on my sentiments.

Everyone who creates, always creates a piece of himself, reflecting the life and the world he is in.

Love your work and find you in all of it so truly!!! Great stuff, finnabair!


Greetings from Vienna,

Peg Robinson said...

Finn your work in inspiring. I love online classes. I learn so much. The thing I love the most about crafting is the journey. I love to stretch and grow. There is always something new to try and crafters are sharing, caring people.

Unknown said...

Thanks
Lynne

Lovely giveaway!

What I love most about crafting is that you are never fully trained. There is always something new exciting lurking behind the corner just waiting for you to discover it.

I'm already a follower. :)

Raewyn aka whinney said...

Whilst the recording of memories is most important I love scrapbooking because of all the colour combinations, they are the icing on the cake! Thank you for the opportunity to win a seat in Nic's amazing looking class.

heirloomscrapping said...

How awesome is this give away What i love about creating is the fact that there are no boundaries no right no wrong just self expression

Jackie said...

An amazing blog. Your work is an inspiration.
I love the process of creating and being to help others to achieve a finished craftwork when they say they are not at all creative.

Lynne said...

I just love creating --making something so fantastic out of something that someone has thrown away is a sheer delight. It consumes me until it is finished and all the time I'm thinking of something else or what else can I find to make.

ScrapFX said...

Thank you to both you and Nic for offering this opportunity.

It's tough to put my finger on one thing that I love about crafting as there are just so many things. Though when push comes to shove the thing I really love the most is the fact that there is no wrong about crafting. There is nothing you can't do or craft or use in your crafting. No subject matter that can't be crafted. No one can tell you not to craft.

Thanks
Paula

LISA said...

Creating is my therapy. When the world seems a bit of a mess, I can hide in my scraproom and wash all the madness away with a little bit of paper and paint. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot in the class. Thank you Nic and Anna. You are the best!!!

Gillian .... said...
