Hi there friends!! I have been meaning to update you on all the exciting events we have coming up all over the country! I have found that these workshops are some of my favorite things that we do at Illustrated Faith. They are a way to connect to others in our community, grow deeper into the process and ask all those questions you have!!

In the past when I have taught scrapbooking classes (while OH SO MUCH FUN) I always came home super tired from them but since I have been teaching these workshops with Illustrated Faith I come home each night and just jump up and down on the bed so excited to play a tiny role in this AMAZING movement God is leading!!!

I am so thankful to have some WONDERFUL hosts come together to make these workshops possible and I know we are all looking forward to meeting YOU and making new friends! Some of the ladies I have met at these events are now LIFE LONG FRIENDS, there is just something about gathering, praying and creating TOGETHER that creates that amazing bond.

Okay Okay enough of that chitter chatter right?! Let’s talk about where we are going!!!


I have heard over and over again about this adorable store and I am so excited to be able to teach there this SUNDAY!?! I am so excited about how this class came together as I will be in Florida for the Christian Retail show with Bella Blvd and Jann so kindly opened up her sweet store for a little workshop. If you haven’t checked out the whim so doodle website, head on over, it’s ADORABLE!!!


When I was in Indiana last time I met my (new) sweet friend Dawn, she is one of those people who get RIGHT to the heart of the matter and feels like a best friend in a matter of moments. We are so excited to offer a workshop at her church and I hope to see you there! Registration is currently open and you can find more info here. 


Since we are already in the area my friend Michelle was SUPER excited to host a workshop in Bruceville which is about 2 hours south of the city. Michelle is SUPER passionate about this even and we are BOTH excited to meet each and every one of you! To register for this event please visit here and reserve your spot! :)


For those of you that know me, you know I have some major memories in Minnesota! I am super excited to return for a FUN workshop. This workshop is still in the works with details to be announced but if you are in the area – mark your calendars!!


The Little Blue House was the FIRST place I taught Illustrated Faith outside my hometown and where I REALLY fell in love with this community and teaching these classes!!! At the Little Blue House we will not only have our Intro class but we will also have an Art Song class as well as a Prayer Journal class and I seriously CAN NOT WAIT!!!!! Made some amazing friends last time and I can’t wait to reconnect and make new ones as well! For more information visit The Little Blue House.

While in Texas and visiting my sweet friend Tracy we thought it would be AMAZING to work with Stacy to bring you a WONDERFUL, relazing, rejuvinating, exicting, FULL, retreat!! So many of you wanted to attend our last retreat and weren’t able to, well here is YOUR CHANCE!!! Join us for a few days full of amazing grace, prayer, creative workshops, growth, yummy food, new friends, lots of laughter and a time your WON’T forget (more info coming soon!) there are only a handful of spots left so if you would like to attend I encourage you to head on over to Stacy’s websites for more details!


YAY YAY YAY!!!! I am so excited to teach in Virginia along side my sweet friend Lisa Nichols Hickman (the author of Writing in the Margins) The details coming in already make me so excited to not only teach at this event but just soak it in! It will be an awesome day and I hope to see you there! Registration for this event isn’t open yet, but please save the date if you are interested in attending!


Can I just admit that visiting New Orleans is on my bucket list? You know what else is on my bucket list? Meeting my friend Cori!!!!!! I love her and her life philosophy and I can’t wait to soak her up in person. So when she reached out to me to host an event I jumped ALL OVER it (ok part of me was being very selfish I will admit that now!!) but seriously to add to an already awesome visit on top of all that we get to host WORKSHOPS for Illustrated FAITH!? Life is good!!!!! This event is full of great options to meet your needs – make sure to head over to the registration page for all the information :) 


Of course I am still counting the days until our Alaskan cruise. I have been asked a lot if  this is sold out and the answer is NO, come with us YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!! I can’t wait. I also get asked WHO should go on this cruise. My answer always is ONLY go on this cruise if you have always wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise and having an Illustrated Faith workshop on the “at sea” days is just a bonus! BRING THE FAMILY, Make this a FUN getaway with your love! Whatever the case just think of it as going on an AMAZING cruise with some AWEOME friends :) and during our “at sea” days we will be hanging out, learning, praying, laughing, creating, all the good stuff! I can’t wait to put the kits together for this cruise, I have some fun ideas :) For more information please visit here.

I will list more detailed information as these events approach but for now save your spot and mark your calendars :)

WHEW!!!!!! !It looks like an exciting 2015 if you ask me!!!! If you have any questions or would like to look into hosting an event near you please email me at shannanoel@gmail.com (workshop in the subject line) we are booked up for 2015 but have started book 2016 :)

Thank you so much for all of your excitement and encouragement every step of the way!!

    I am so excited about the Lafayette workshop! Can anyone tell me if we should bring anything?

  16. Lauren Pareigat 6 years ago

    Could you provide information about what supplies are part of the workshop and the extra session (MN)? I’m on a pretty tight budget, so I’m trying to make a decision. Knowing what I might be able to take back home with me would help. Thanks!

    This is such a cool aritstic outlet! I just found out my niece is starting to journal. She is 17 and a real sweetheart. Anything in stone for MN again in 2016 or maybe Milwaukee WI since you work with Stephanie from Bella? She is adorable.
