Life Artist Now Available As PDF

My book Life Artist is now available as a downloadable PDF.

Originally published in 2007, this book covers the basic tenants of my memory keeping philosophy. In looking back over the book as I prepped the PDF I was struck by how timeless the concepts are and how they are still the things that I focus on today: going with the flow, embracing imperfection, play, it's ok, celebrating the everyday, finding your voice and telling your story.

Read more or purchase on my Life Artist page. You can also read additional reviews or order the soft-cover edition via Amazon (this book is out of print but you can still find both new and used copies via Amazon).

    Thanks so much for sharing your book in PDF but I gotta' say no PDF will compare to my hard copy, that is in my scraproom, one of the few books I still peruse regularly, and one of a select few I refuse to purge even in the age of technology. There is just something about holding it in ones hands.

    This is a great book, I have used it many times, it helped me get started in scrap-booking and what I wanted my look to be. I am glad you are making this available in PDF form since it is not available in hard copy. Good book to have.

    I was shopping at a small scrapbooking store on Whidby Island and during the course of making a purchase I started talking about how much you inspire my creativity. The store owner went to her window and came back with this book and gave it to me for free!!!
    She thought I might enjoy it. I thanked her profusely because this book has been hard to come by.
    So glad you were able to obtain the rights to release the book so others my enjoy it.

    Ali, I just love this book and have turned to it over and over again over the years. It always inspires me, not just in creating scrapbook pages, but in my approach and outlook on life. It helps me stay motivated to live creatively with
    a "go with the flow" attitude. It's a gem that I treasure!

    I remember just about hiperventalating when I paged through my hard copy for the first time (a few years ago). Super inspiring book!

    I bought this book way back when it first came out and poured over it. I drank in the information on each page as I was just beginning to grasp this idea of documenting the everyday. I wanted to learn more, and this book did not disappoint. Like you mentioned, the concepts are timeless. I keep going back to the book even now and re-reading parts to remind myself of what you have said in order to continue to incorporate it into my scrapbooking. I even still have the big poster framed and hanging on my wall in my craft room! Love it!
