One Little Word 2012 | Class Registration Now Open

Throughout all of 2011 I've been conducting a class over at Big Picture Classes called One Little Word.

It's been such a good experience for me personally and I'm excited to move forward with the same format, and my new word, for 2012.

THE BASICS | After registering you'll receive an email reminder at the beginning of each month to come to the classroom for a video presentation and a creative prompt (writing, photography, and a bit of craft). The class and the prompts are not meant to take a lot of time, the whole goal is to help keep your word visible for you throughout the year.

FOR ALUMNI | If you were in the class this year (2011) and are interested in taking it again you should have received an email (on 12/9) with a special offer for alumni. If you register for OLW2012 by December 31st you will receive Stacy Julian's Finish Line Scrapbooking self-paced class ($12 value) free**. The code for the free class is olwalumni (you need to register for OLW2012 before the code will work). P.S. If you’re already registered for Finish Line Scrapbooking, please email [email protected] for an alternate free class!

FOR NEW STUDENTS | Register by December 31st and be entered in a random drawing. Big Picture will be selecting 10 students who will be featured on my blog along with their word in January.

**Disclaimer: This coupon only applies to the "Finish Line Scrapbooking" Self-Paced class; coupon does not apply towards other Self-Paced Classes, Workshops, Products or Gift Certificates. Offer will only work for students who have enrolled in both One Little Word 2011 and One Little Word 2012. Expires January 15th 2011 at 10:00pm PST. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Coupon must be entered in the "Promo Code" box during checkout and press "apply" button; discount will be applied immediately. Not applicable towards previous purchases. Other terms and restrictions may apply.

    Ali, Could you talk some about finding or deciding upon a word. No word has "found" me! I was thinking of 'organize' or 'declutter' as those are things i would like to finally accomplish, but they don't seem to have any 'energy' in them! I am trying to get around to reading "Improv Wisdom" by Patricia Ryan Madson; I have barely started it. I also have the book "The Gifts of Imperfection," on which you commented (& are quoted on the back cover); haven't started this one yet. Maybe those two books give you some idea of the direction in which I'm headed. Thanks, JudyC (met you previously at Get Croppin' events!)

    You know I didn't do this last year, but this year a word has already appeared - be bold in 2012! Heading over to BP to sign up now.

    I am so excited for OLW this year. My word found me sometime in September or October, I already have my album prepped and my title page done and I'm so excited. Thanks for the alumni discount to both you and BPC!

    I've already been working on my itunes list and a wordle for 2012. It's making it so fun and exciting to get me pumped up for 2012. Someone had a bucket list for 2012 on Twitter, so I may get started on that too. For anyone trying to decide about this class, I say it is definitely worth it and I'm in for 2012 again as well!

    I am so thankful, that you will guide me through another year with my word. Thanks to your class, I did not loose sight of my word in 2011 - and I had some positive "adjustments" in my everyday life.
    I watched and enjoyed every video, but I missed to do 3 of the tasks. But best of all: I don't feel a bit of guilt, having not done them, because of YOU!
    Now it is about moving forward and finding a new word for 2012 and seeing what happens.
    This class is the best I have done so far - because it is not about stuff - it is about me - nothing more and nothing less.
    Thanks again, Ali!

    Is this year's OLW class going to be a repeat of 2011's? Or will there be new elements included?

    I really enjoyed this year's workshop!

    I have chosen a word each year for the last three years, but this year is my first taking your class. I have chosen "healthy" this year. I think sometimes I spend so much time running around to work, my kids' activities, and just general errands, that I forget to think about my health. I am turning forty in 2012, and I want to be as healthy as I can be by the time my birthday rolls around in October!

    I, too, think about what you are going through, Ali. I am happy to say that you can have a positive relationship with Chris, but, more importantly, you will be so much stronger after getting through this time of your life. I went through a divorce three years ago, and I focused on my olw, courage, a lot to get me through it.

    I am signed up for ONE LITTLE WORD this year. Haven't settled on my word. How do you print the title page and not have the hash marks in the corners? Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I'm interested in participating, but cannot purchase a registration at the moment. So I'm gonna try to use your idea on my own for the year. I've decided that "kindness" will be my 2012 word. I'm very happy to know about this altogether, thank you!
