Welcome February

Happy first Friday in February!

I’ve got a couple things to share with you today:

ONE | If you are a One Little Word student new content is now available in the classroom. If you didn’t receive an email welcoming you back to the class be sure to check your junk/spam folder and if it’s not there contact admin@bigpictureclasses.com to troubleshoot. One Little Word has on-going registration throughout the year – you are welcome to join at anytime.

TWO | I’d like to give a warm welcome to my newest blog sponsors Close To My Heart and Addie Recoy Designs. Thank you for being a part of this community! If you’re interested in connecting your business with the awesome readers here send me an email at sponsors@aliedwards.com for more information.


THREE | Looking for a bit of weekly inspiration related to creativity in your in-box each week? Check out my 52 Creative Lifts newsletter (my personal writing project for 2012). Here’s a link to Week 5. Subscribe for free here.

The kids are here with me this weekend so I’m hoping to do lots of hanging out, watching movies, going swimming, eating pancakes & pizza & then having tacos on Sunday with family friends.

Hope you have a great weekend!

    What a fun Friday post, the photos are great. I can’t believe Miss Anna will be 3 in a week, can’t wait to see what you have planned for her. I’m sure she is excited.

    I read your newsletter this morning and again it touched me and inspired me. I think it’s so cool that you goggled “curious” and got so many links and info on this word. Thank you for making the time for these each week and I think you are doing a wonderful job with them. It’s the perfect balance for any of your readers and nice thoughts from you on each one. Thanks again for letting us share this creative inspiration journey with you.

    Have a great first February weekend also, you have fun plans.

    Ali, Hope you have a great weekend with the kiddos sounds like lots of fun. I found your article on writing interesting as I have ventured on a project of my own called, 52 Letters, where I am writing a handwritten letter each week. Find out more information on my blog: http://menz.typepad.com/scrap_life/52-letters/

    I followed up on a “Creative Lifts” suggestion and signed up for the February Layout a Day challenge, except that I’m writing a story a day. Feels wonderful to exercise my creative brain. Thank you so much!
