One Little Word® 2017

Taking a break from December Daily® for a bit today to kick off One Little Word® for 2017

Registration for my annual 12-month One Little Word® workshop has begun. Register before December 31, 2016 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 six years (started in 2011) - 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 like I did last year. Please note that in an effort to simplify my processes that this is the last year I will provide printables in the 8.5x11 size

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. 

In addition this year we are offering a gifting option if you would like to give the gift of this workshop. On the workshop shop page you'll find a link to "Gift This Class" under the orange "Add To Cart" button. After clicking through to purchase you will receive an email with a PDF that includes a one-time use code and link for your recipient to gain access to the classroom. Giving the gift of education is fun and meaningful and lasts all throughout the year

As an enrollment bonus we will be including the One Little Word® Digital Main Kit + Action Cards + Reflection Cards (currently only available in the class) when you join the workshop (details about the physical kit can be found below). Just a heads up that this digital kit includes PNG files, not PDF files. 

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. 

You can read my archive of One Little Word® blog posts here

I'll be sharing my 2017 word after Christmas.

In addition to the workshop we've grown our collection of One Little Word® products to encourage you in making your word visible in your life. All these products are separate from class enrollment. 

Here's a look at our new One Little Word® products

The One Little Word® Main Kit includes 3x8 transparent monthly dividers + die cut labels + a rolling stamp that includes the following phrases: in progress, action items, one day at a time, note to self, document, this photo, fact, reflections, gratitude, make visible, hello, feeling, right now, intentions + 3x4 card set + sticker labels + and a set of monthly rubber circles. 

Two album options are available this year (same spine size as last year which is 1.5 inches) that include 17 page protectors (a mix of pocket configurations): blue or white

variety pack of stickers that includes two sheets each of five different designs: messy circles, an alphabet, flags, mixed shapes, and word/phrase stickers. 

silkscreen + stencil bundle that includes three paint sets, three stencils (stars, squares, and lines) and three silkscreens. 

Action and Reflection 3x4 card sets. Sold separately. Great for writing down/establishing your actions at the beginning of the month and documenting your reflections at the end of the month. 

6x8 Take Action paper pad and a 3x4 Gratitude paper pad + a pen bundle that includes a Precision Pen, Slick Writer, and a Silver Metallic Marker

Four new stamps sets including an alphabet (letters are 1 inch tall), a pattern maker stamp that includes past words + phrases about One Little Word®, a messy circle set, and a phrases set  that would be great for planners as well as documenting your experience with your word. 

This year we will also be offering a larger version of the custom acrylic words in addition to the small 4-6 inch we offered last year. 

You can request any word or name up to 8 characters. Please allow 3-4 weeks to receive your custom order.

We also have a set of gold-foil quotation cards that you can see in the image above.

    Can we order multiple words? Also, it seems that when you try to customize it won't let you add the item to your cart. Not sure if there is a glitch or if it just isn't up and running yet.

      You can order multiple words but each one is an individual check out and shipped separately. We are working towards being able to bundle them together but it's not an option at this time. I'm checking on the other issue.

    It's gonna be my first year doing "one little word" and I am waiting for it since June or so... when it felt too late to start with the 2016 project but still so long till the 2017 will start. So I had plenty of time to think about my word already. xD I am so looking forward to it! :D Actually, I was going to bed now but then I saw this and now I have to have a look around the shop first, didn't expect the things coming before Christmas. But it's cool, so maybe they will arrive at my place early in January. :D

    Love it all! Quick question will these supplies be available all year long or once they sell out they're gone? Especially wondering about the stamps and accessory type things - keeping my budget in mind I probably would want to get main kit and binder first then possibly build my collection throughout the year.

      The stamps and cards are something we generally have the ability to restock but other products won't necessarily be restocked. It's unlikely that the Main Kit, silkscreens or albums would be restocked.

      Sad to hear about the silkscreens since I just got the email today and went directly to the website and they were already sold out. Hope you are able to get them back in for those of us that missed them since they went so fast.

    Ali, I am so excited to be a part of this! I joined a few years back & was not very involved with the membership & didn't finish my one word project. This year will be different. I have chosen my word or it chose me-my word is...listen. I am a 5th grade teacher & I have 23 students with a very low level of listening skills. I also have a 27 year old son with Autism. I am constantly trying to get my students & my son to listen to me-then tonight it came to me, I need to listen, really listen, to them & use what I learn to help all of them. I had this realization as I was thinking about what my word could be. Thank you so much, Ali. Joining & ordering my supplies (boy, can I shop!) just made my day! I can't wait to get started:-):-):-):-)

    I've spent most of the last 24 hours in bed with a bad headache and am so sad I missed the silkscreens. I too hope that maybe they can be restocked.

    Hi Ali -
    Question about the OLW albums... in the video review of the products both color options appeared to have "bubbling" on the inside near the 6-rings and the outside binder edges... were those prototypes you were using? Will the albums get a quality check before shipping if this is a problem? Thanks :)

      Hi! We don't anticipate that is a global problem for the albums. If you happen to receive one with that issue please contact my Customer Service team and they would be happy to help you out!

    Super excited about the gold foiled cards Ali.

    Quick question, under the shipping special paragraph, the last statement has a deadline of January 31, 2016. Is this suppose to be December 31, 2016 or January 31, 2017. I'm assuming December but wanted to double check.

    "This shipping promotion will be available through January 31, 2016. After that date regular shipping rates will apply."

    I have taken classes from a multitude of instructors in the ''artistic' world; however, I can say I haven't ever been this exited about a class as I am 'One Little Word'. I've purchased some items...and I'm going back for more, I just can't wait. Thank you, Ali, for your genius!

    I'm very late to the game unfortunately. Will you be restocking the products that are showing sold out (specifically the albums, silkscreens and stamps?

    I'm just getting ready to join the workshop and start my "word" journey... my question is, Is one album intended to last all year? Can I sign up for the Workshop,and order supplies without a commitment? or would I have to sign up with a commitment and cancel after the 15th?
    Thanks. Can't wait to get started.
