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.

Spreading Our Wings Blog Hop

Spreading our wings and flying — that’s what so many wonderful souls have been doing for the past couple of months.  We met through Kelly Rae Roberts’ e-course Summer 2011 Flying Lessons, and we’ve been exchanging ideas, cheering each other and answering/asking questions about art and life ever since.  I have been astonished by the overwhelming kindness of this group of women.  And the creativity from them is inspiring — inspiring me to take some small, small steps.  Big hugs of gratitude to you all.

On with the BLOG HOP!
