WonderWoman's Greatest Superpower ~ Free Teleclass

Discover Wonder Woman's Greatest Superpower:
Lasso Love to FINALLY Get Things Done!

FREE Teleclass by Artella Founder Marney Makridakis 

Wednesday, March 23, 9:00pm Eastern 

A message from Artella Founder Marney Makridakis:

Join me and some very special guests for "Discover Wonder Woman's Greatest Superpower: Lasso Love to FINALLY Get Things Done!” , a playful and practical free teleworkshop in which you'll learn how to use art, creativity, and LOVE as powerful new tools to GET more things done!

This fun workshop is based on ARTbundance™ philosophy, which is all about tapping into the universal wellspring of creative wisdom to make powerful changes in our lives as we capture the power of creativity and actually use it as a life-transforming tool with real, practical results.

In the free "Discover Wonder Woman's Greatest Superpower" event, I'll be joined by some of Artella's ARTbundance™ Certification Training Alumni, as well as my ultra-special guest, Kathy Cano-Murillo aka "The Crafty Chica"! Kathy is a savvy Web entrepreneur, the author of 7 craft how-to books and 2 new novels (including Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing, just released this month!), the designer of her own art supply product line, and so much more…she's truly one of my very FAVORITE Wonder Women, ever!

It will be one great big party as we all share practical tools to easily and joyfully connect to the power of love and use it to discover NEW ways to organically manage your time, fuel your energy, and get things done!

Discover Wonder Woman's Greatest Superpower: Lasso Love to FINALLY Get Things Done! is a free teleclass to be held on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 9:00pm Eastern Time (8:00 Central, 7:00 Mountain, 6:00 Pacific), taking place via telephone conference line.

Sign up for this free class and you will...
  • Enjoy fun exercises to identify your personal core motivating ARTbundance™ Principles and the most powerful (and perhaps most surprising) "loves" of your life.
  • Engage in an innovative, hands-on art project that actually focuses these elements to help you portraitize rather than prioritize! Through theportraitizing process, you'll learn new skills to uniquely design each day as your own work of art, creating both the structure AND the support to finally get things done!
  • Hear candid personal stories from Marney, Kathy, and ARTbundance™ Graduates, with our best Wonder Woman Tips for amazing ways to manage your time and fuel your energy using the power of LOVE!
  • Receive a dynamic follow-up workbook including inspiring and effective ARTsignments™ that harness the ARTbundance™ Principles to uncover even more new sources and opportunities for using LOVE to get things done!
  • For those also interested in hearing more about the Spring 2011 ARTbundance™ Certification Training Program, you are invited to stay for a fun gathering after the call, where you'll hear directly from actual ACT graduates, and get full details about applying for the 2011 ARTbundance™ Certification Training program.

And by the way, Wonder Men are welcome, too! :-)

Crafty Chica Giveaway

With a life motto of “Crafts! Drama! Glitter!” Crafty Chica Kathy Cano-Murillo is a creative force of nature. A former syndicated columnist for The Arizona Republic, she is the founder of the award-winning Web site, and the author of seven nonfiction craft books and a Web series on Kathy has a Crafty Chica line of art supplies that are sold nationwide. She also has been featured in numerous media outlets such as The New York Times Magazine, NPR’s Weekend Edition, USA TodayBust, and Latina magazine. She has shared her crafty ideas on local television, as well as on Sí TV, HGTV, and DIY network. She has been writing stories longer than she has been crafting. Inspired by Judy Blume and Erma Bombeck, she caught the literary bug in grade school, where she used to draw a picture and then write a colorful story to go with it. It’s a creativity exercise she still practices to this day! Kathy lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, two kids, and five Chihuahuas. This is her second novel.

Kathy has a knack for writing stories. Her first novel ( Waking Up in the Land of Glitter ) was a great read. Now she has penned her second novel, Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing. I just have to say , I LOVED it!
