One Little Word® 2018

Taking a little break from December Daily® documentation today to kick off One Little Word® 2018

Registration for my annual 12-month  One Little Word® workshop has begun. Register before December 31, 2017 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 seven 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 have the past two years.  

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 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.

NEW TO ONE LITTLE WORD®

Is this your first time hearing about  One Little Word®

Check out my new video here: 

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 2018 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 the new  One Little Word® Main Kit

    I love one little word. I’m still thinking about my 2018 word as I’m looking for a word that will help me achieve my goals in moving more and in getting to a Swim/Bike event on Toronto centre Island in August. My word for 2017 was Brave and I feel that even in the years I have not done all the prompts that I have still enjoyed participating & keeping my word in mind because of the monthly inspiration and emails. Love the new product, can’t wait to do more in 2018!

    I've been checking my email every day for this announcement! I love OLW and am so excited to participate again this year. And thank you so much for the gift option! I have been wanting to give this to my sister as a Christmas gift and this is perfect. Thanks, Ali (and friends)!

    Love OLW. Such a great class to motivate thinking about my word through the year. I think I am pretty set with my word for 2018. Looking forward to continuing the journey and using the awesome new products.

    I am very excited! This will be the first year trying this project. I have heard of it through out the planning and crafting community but have not joined in myself. I really enjoy memory keeping and story telling! I think keeping up with a goal through out the year that is set by a simple word that could really expand to so many different aspects and meanings is really neat! I have a few words in mind so the hard part will be just choosing one.

    Excited for a new year, but kind of bummed about the price increases. Both the album and kit prices went up, and dividers are not being included in the kit this year. Even the acrylic words went up! Last year's kit, album, and class cost $71, and now it is $94 (adding in the dividers). That is about a 33% increase for this project!

      Hi! Thanks for the feedback! The album price increase is directly related to an increase on the cost of manufacturing. The albums also do include 10 more page protectors. We held off as long as we could on increasing the prices of the albums but needed to make that change. The kit this year includes more product than the kit last year which is reflected in the price. We made the decision to remove the dividers in order to not have an even higher price and instead give people the option to purchase them separately.

    Will the videos and prompts be the same as last year?

      Prompts will likely be similar. Videos are always different - I always record new videos to go with my new word and how my own process is going with that new word.

    Hi there Ali, as a story kit and stamp subscriber and now a December Daily participant I thought I'd go all out and join the 2018 OLW too! My question is... will I be able to order my handwritten plastic word (when I can settle on one) anytime throughout 2018 or only during the three delivery periods you've indicated so far? Thanks so much for all you have done to encourage me to record my life and the lives of those around me!
