Fly Tribe Blog Hop

Our Fly Tribe from Kelly Rae Robert’s Flying Lessons e-course is getting creative again.  We’re doing a blog hop about our “word” for 2012.

Here I blogged about starting again this year with Ali Edwards’ One Little word project.  ORGANIZE is so, SO my word this year.  Hey, I had the pre-class assignment up before January first.

In the class, January’s assignment is a 9 pocket page defining our word, it’s various forms and focusing on intentions for 2012.  Last year in this class I struggled with the supplies.  This year I have scrapbook paper, stamps, fonts and best of all — some of my own art to include.  Above is my mermaid from our last blog hop shrunk smaller than I thought was possible.

Yes, I want to do so many things.  The only way to do even half of all the things I want to do is to be organized.  “Whip into shape” — isn’t that a great synonym!  That’s my plan — I’m going to whip my life into shape; not organize a closet — although they could use it.

“With this word, I invite into my life…” — a powerful thing when we intend.  Order, structure and accomplishment are good things.  But calm is a big thing for me, and with my word, that is exactly what I am inviting into my life in 2012.  I don’t want to spend the year resembling the woman above in my little pen sketch I did for my financial blog.  I have spent too much of my life in that frazzled state, and I am excited and looking forward to organizing!
I hope you visit the other members of our Fly Tribe’s blogs.  All these “words” are adding up to a lot of creativity in 2012.  Here’s the list with links to them all.  And a special thank you to Rae Payne for creating our Fly Tribe Word Hop badge.  Enjoy, and be inspired.

Fly Tribe Get-Together

What an exciting day!  Yesterday in Louisville, I met four fellow classmates from Kelly Rae Roberts e-course “Flying Lessons.”  And what a treat!  Kathleen Conrad, Kelley Miller, Kelly Hoernig and Deborah Eaton were all an absolute delight to meet.  We talked for hours (and I do mean HOURS) about art, life and our journeys.

And if this wasn’t exciting enough, the gifts I received took the experience over the top.

 This beautiful tag came fromKelly Hoernig, and she answered all my questions about her process.

A gorgeous pendant with my word (can you believe it — MY word for 2012!) on it came from Kathleen Conrad.  Of course, I had a ton of questions about her process of using resin which she patiently explained.  A unique reminder to be “organized” in 2012.

Kelley Miller’s work has been a favorite of mine since the beginning of the class, and now I have my own original.

I have been truly blessed by all of the caring souls from this class, and to have been able to meet four of them in person was a memorable experience.  Can’t wait to do it again, and much thanks to these four beautiful souls.
