What is One Little Word®?

In 2006 I began a tradition of choosing one word for myself each January—a word to focus on, to live with, to investigate, to write about, to craft with, and to reflect upon as I go about my daily life. These words have each become a part of my life in one way or another—a process I document via simple creative monthly prompts from January to December.

You're invited to join me in choosing your own One Little Word®.

This project centers around a year-long workshop designed to inspire you and offers monthly creative prompts and encouragement as you let this word into your life.

We are excited to offer a growing selection of One Little Word® memory keeping products for you to customize your own documentation process.
