Ali Edwards Capture life. Create art.

April 2, 2013

Hello April

It never ceases to amaze me that the natural world wakes up again in the spring – that things can die to the ground and come back again as bright and green and full of life as ever before. I carry so much love for this time of the year.

I kinda feel like this would be a really good time of the year for Thanksgiving.

I guess every day is really a pretty good darn day for giving thanks.

Here’s to a wonderful month ahead.


A new prompt is up in the One Little Word classroom. This workshop is open for new registration throughout the year. If you’d like to make a commitment to make your word visible in your life this year (take action) come join us.


Looking for a self-paced workshop that will really encourage you to tell a bunch of different stories about your life? Check out my self-paced workshop over at Big Picture Classes called 31 Things. Each day for 31 days you will receive an email that includes a specific word/theme for the day, a detailed writing prompt with suggestions on how to tell the story, my writing sample/layout, and a photo prompt. More information and registration available here.


A big thank you to the wonderful companies that continue to support my site:

If you would like information on sponsorship and/or giveaways please email Katie.


In other cool news, I’m now an official corporation: Ali Edwards Design, Inc. It doesn’t really change anything around here (more has to do with taxes and such) but it’s pretty cool nonetheless. Thanks for coming along on this journey with me.

    Congrats on your new status!! You are inspiring me to look at the seasons around here too. Each month I’m doing a farewell post to the month recapping the weather. It’s fun to learn that we have seasons here too, even though half the time it doesn’t feel like it!

    I love Spring too. Love the quote. It’s been 10 years since you were selected for the CK Hall of Fame. To say the least, a lot has happened in 10 years. I have been ago for the ride for the last 4 years. Congrats on your new status.

    Such a silly question…but how in the world do you get such great photos of yourself. Is someone taking them, are you using gorillapod or a time??? like the one of you laying down with your eyes closed. Would love to see more about how your taking those photos and are you just more aware now so that helps you get the great photos. Like the dog on porch, at the angle. That’s a part of my “hourly” life right now letting our 15 yr old black lab in and out and up the stairs but I never capture that. More the ones of her sleeping or the kids snuggled w/ her. Thank you for sharing your life with us. ~hugs

      Hi Kimberly – all those photos of myself I took myself with my iphone just holding it out in front of me. Sometimes I have someone else take them but for the most part I’m just putting my arm out and taking some shots and seeing what happens. I think it’s definitely something I practice and it’s become a habit. The dog on the porch is really all about capturing what I see right now – you should challenge yourself to try it and really intentionally take photos over the course of the day of what’s happening right in front of you (tell the story via the images vs. the words).

    HUGE congrats on the corporation!! I got my LLC papers in the mail two weeks ago…it feels so good to be significant. <— hint, that's my OLW.

    Totally with you on Spring. Everything comes back alive and renews our faith that it really will all be OK. :)

    Congrats on becoming a corporation. Were you previously registered as a partnership? Or not at all? [just curious, I'm a soon-to-be lawyer]
