Welcome to the One Little Word® Kick Off post for 2016.
Registration for the 12-month workshop has begun. Register before December 31, 2015 to receive the early-bird price of $26 (after December 31st the price is $31).
The workshop will operate much like it has for the past five years - monthly creative prompts to encourage you to connect with your word via writing, photography, and collage. This year I'll be working in the 6x8 format but will continue to provide printables in the 8.5x11 size for those of you who wish to continue in your current albums.
Past students have reported learning about celebrating progress rather than perfection, about the power of focusing on a single word and the impact that can have in your life, about how many little moments make up the patterns of our lives, about thinking of your future self as you make decisions today, about how your own journey is important, about how to step back into the story of your own life as an active participant, about learning what you most need from yourself, and about the power of coming back again and again to your original intentions as a means of reflection and forward movement.
Is this your first time hearing about One Little Word®? The premise is simple - choose a word to invite into your life for the coming year. You live with it. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities and no right or wrong way to approach the adventure. Sometimes words have come to me out of the blue and other years I've gone looking for what it was I most wanted to bring into my life.
I'll be sharing my 2016 word after Christmas.
In addition to the workshop this year I'm offering a small collection of products to aid you in your journey with your word - including 6x8 albums (your choice of gray or gold-lined), a OLW journal that includes 20 additional prompts/creative ideas + blank pages for personal writing, a monthly chipboard divider/stamp kit, and small custom acrylic words (written by me in either black or white - the size is between 4 and 6 inches). We've also partnered with MantraBand® to offer a selection of their word bracelets.
During the One Little Word® Kick-Off period shipping is free domestically and just $5 international when purchasing products included on the One Little Word® shop page (please note that If you add any other items from other areas in the shop to your cart, normal shipping rates will apply to those additional items..
