7 Books in 7 Days
Create seven unique books by hand and fill them with your ideas and images.
Welcome to the 7 Books in 7 Days Challenge. I'm your hostess and creative guide, Kiala Givehand. This course is a stand alone class that you take at your own pace (the lessons unlock one day at a time).
I guide you through creating 7 different hand bound books over the course of 7 days. If you are in the class, you'll get video tutorials of each book being made step-by-step, project ideas, suggestions, and resources, as well as a downloadable PDF for each book.
My hope is that this class will spark your creative book making fuse and have you creating books well after the 7 days.
If you are join now you also get access to the replays of the one hour sessions where I shared more info about each book and showed you how to expand on each structure and push your content to the next level.
If you are joining us in July of 2021 you'll also get access to new content and two bonus books that I'll make with you live on July 6th from 4PM to 5:30PM Central Time on Zoom. AND wait, there's more -- I've added a private group for this class on my Mighty Network (The LifeAlchemy Academy).
And several other structures. Join us to make them all.

Hello Beautiful Creative You!
I'm happy you're here.
I'm Kiala Givehand, a multi-passionate intuitive & intentional creative. I walk through the world as a LifeAlchemist™ for creative, heart-centered, soul-filled women who want to change the world by shining their light more fully and more brightly. I call myself a LifeAlchemist™ because I help women bring together all the parts of themselves to create a life they love. As an Alchemist, I support women through creative and spiritual awakenings and guide them towards empowerment.
As an artist, I make (and sometimes sell) handmade journals using a mix of mediums. I host workshops, retreats and online classes where I get to teach the things that nourish my soul -- bookbinding, journaling, creative writing, and self-discovery though transformational tools and content.
For almost 20 years, I taught English, Language Arts, and Creative Writing at every educational level, while simultaneously traveling the U.S. delivering workshops and presentations to educators. While I no longer travel to work with teachers, I now enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups with students, teachers, artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs. I do this work because I love helping women find the thing that fills them with joy and watching them pursue it without regrets or apologies.
I've done a lot of things in my short 45+ years on this planet, but I'm most proud of raising my nephew Treavor, and listening to my inner wisdom by doing the things that make me come alive. Constructing handmade books and art journals is one of those things that allows me to feel A L I V E!!! And I'd love to have you join me on this journey. Reading tarot & oracle cards, pulling astrological charts, and delving into the esoteric and ancient guidance systems is another way I help women have spiritual and creative awakenings. I'm eager to do the same for you.
I cherish every single day and treat life as one amazing adventure. I play with paint and watercolor, fold paper into books, write poetry, short fiction, & creative non-fiction, and guide women through sacred remembering of who they truly are. But always, every single day, I journal and do something that I feel is creative. Oh!! And did I mention that I'm the proud owner of a fabulous collection of fountain pens? (I know. Geek alert!)
Join me and let's create something beautiful, TODAY!!
