One Little Word 2015: Communicate


Totally inspired by Katniss Everdeen and Catching Fire, Twenty Fourteen will forever be synonymous with AIM, my one little word. In so many ways, AIM served me well especially in my creative side business. Yes, last January I challenged myself to teach at a second scrapbook store. I had been teaching at one but by the end of 2014, I surpassed that original goal, teaching at 4 stores and I am set to teach my first online class at Big Picture Classes – yeah! PS – have you signed up? 🙂

I would be lying if I said, I am not going to miss the word AIM as my guiding word. Can’t I use it for another year? When a word serves you well, its hard to move on. Enter in 2015. I have struggled to find a word. I had to block out the noise in my head. I had to stop and listen. Thankfully, one word came in the silence.


In terms of professional / work life, I want to be mindful of the words that I use with families. Having had to access some healthcare services in late 2014, I am fully aware of the experience on the other side. Those experiences being both positive and negative have been enlightening.

In terms of my family, I want to focus my time on connecting verbally & non verbally with Rowan, Aaron and Charlie. I have so much more to talk about with this and I will elaborate / save it for a different blog post. Just know that I want to crave out more quality time with my little family unit.

In terms of this blog / creative side business / brand, I want to communicate with you on a consistent basis. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday – I am looking to focus my writing efforts to a more manageable schedule. I want to discuss so many aspects of pocket page scrapbooking and I am inspired to rely my thoughts on this in a variety of formats. Look for some different modes of communication from me soon! Seriously, mark your calendars – January 16th, something new is coming! 

What is your OLW for 2015? 


  1. great word!!
    I am thinking of Make
    -make do w/what I have instead of running to the store
    -make more homemade food
    -make decisions/pathways for the future

    this is the first year I have struggled on a word, usually one picks me….
