Hello November

Hello November! Recovering from an awesome Halloween with family and friends and getting all excited about the upcoming holidays.

A very warm welcome to my new sponsors this month:

  • | a one-stop online shopping experience for all things creative + digital
  • Foto Crush | a revolutionary photo enhancement tool that allows you to easily flair your photos

A couple other things you might want to check out:


Studio Calico has put together a 25 Days workshop for even more December Daily inspiration. I’ll still be doing my regular posting here on my blog (foundation pages coming next week). Includes a bonus kit while supplies last.


Next year I’ll be teaching an all-new 12-week workshop at Big Picture Classes: Hello Story. The class is still in development (it will run from July – September 2013) and will focus on 12 specific journaling techniques. My plan is to create all new layout examples for this workshop and show multiples ways to tell stories using each one of the 12 techniques. I’m super excited about divining into the content and seeing where it takes me!

Check out a quick video promo here:

Currently you can register for all four of the 4 Experts classes at a special rate. For the first time ever (and for a limited time), save up to $60 AND get a free inspirational gift book from Compendium if you register for all four 4Experts classes at once. The more quickly you act, the more you’ll save. Save $60 when you register by November 2nd, $40 when you register by December 3, and $20 when you register by December 28. Four incredible workshops; one easy payment. Details here.

Individual workshop registration will begin about 8 weeks before each class starts.

    It is possible to just take your class and not the rest of the bundle? The whole package looks great but out of my price rage and time commitment.

      Yes – individual classes will go on sale about 8 weeks before the class starts. I’ll definitely post more about it next year.

    Ali – will these 12 techniques be new/different from what you have done in “Yesterday and Today” and “Storyology”. Or are some of the same ones (“Today You”, “Writing a letter to yourself”, “Repetition”) employed again? Thanks!

      Ali said…

      Some of them are likely to show up again and I hope to add in some new ones as well – a combination of tried and true + some new ideas to try.

    Wait! what! Aren’t you the DD queen?

      I’m still going to be doing it here on my blog just like I have in years past. Lots of options around the internet for people to get inspiration – I’m cool with that.

    I am so excited about the december daily. I ordered the kit from SC and signed up for the new class this morning and now just waiting to see your book.
    Being somewhat empty nesters we don’t have little ones so am trying to figure out how to do this december daily without all the holiday stuff that most people will put into the book. Thinking more along the lines of a daily journal.
    Then comes the problem what to put into Project Life and what to put into the December Daily, especially when your life is as boring as ours.

      A daily journal sounds lovely.

    Will it be similar to 31 things or a continuation of that class?

    • ….
      Ali said…

      I’ll also be doing a class called 31 More Things sometime next year. It will be a continuation of the first one. This will be totally different than that. Some of the ideas for writing might be similar but I’ll be showing different ways to design layouts using the journaling techniques.

    Ali, Are you still planning on a revamped version of OLW? And did you find your word yet?

    • ….
      Ali said…

      Yes – it will be similar to what I’ve done in the past with updated prompts each month. Should have more info on that later this month. And I’m pretty sure I have my word -

    Busy morning at the office today…signed up for the 4 Expert classes, signed up for 25 Days, ordered kits from Cocoa Daisy, printed out the November OLW prompts while considering what word I will choose for 2013…and, because I multi-task so well, also managed to get some real work done!

    Hello Ali, soooo excited to hear about this new STORY class!!! This will be what I’m most thankful for today, STORIES!! Thanks to you I love finding the little stories to tell about our family.
    Can’t wait to see the foundation post next week. Would love to take this class but no funds right now for it. I’m always inspired by your DD so it will be ok.
    Hooray for knowing what your OLW will be next year. I might have mine now too.
    LOVE the photo of Anna and can’t wait to see the Halloween pictures.

    Jessica B said…

    Love all the updates! Do you have to have the Studio Calico DD kit to take the class?

    • ….
      Ali said…

      Not at all – they will be using the kit but I imagine there will be lots of ideas you can incorporate into your own project even if you don’t have the kit.

    hi Ali,

    I’m so excited to do my 1st DD album! and can’t wait to take your class next year. I took your 31 things class last year and I’ve got to say, between that album and the WITL, I don’t know which my favorite is. THANK YOU for all that you do and all the inspiration!!

    Wow Ali, seems like a busy year ahead for you with all that teaching. I love the classes I’ve taken from you online. I just signed up for the Studio Calico class and am excited to try DD from a new perspective this year, although I am excited to see what you inspire us with as well :)

    Glad to see all the beautiful photos :) Thanks for sharing, as always!
