One Little Word Blog Hop - December Edition

Well... it's that time again.  And I'm so proud of myself that I've mostly kept up with this class all year!  Seriously considering doing it again next year and just continuing in this same album.  The One Little Word Class is taught by Ali Edwards and offered through Big Picture Classes. It is running again next year - just opened up for registration - and it is only $36 for the full year!

So, somehow in November I didn't end up on the blog list.  I didn't realize until I was going to bed last night that I had never received the final email from Margie, so it was too late to follow up with her and get added.  But I'm joining in anyway! :)

November's prompt was a series of "i" statements. Which really caused me to sit down and think seriously about where I was with my word this late in the year.

I used leftover scraps from my November progress chart to fill in the blank spots.

 a couple close ups....


and finally, my progess chart for the month - photographed half way through the 29th.

I actually wrote down was I grateful for EVERY day this month!

I am so impressed with your persistence, your album is lovely!
I joined this class but have not done one single little thing ... at all, at least I know the resources are there and I can get to it when the mood strikes!

I'm really proud of you too, Cheri. Your dedication to this project all year has been an inspiration, and your thoughts and documentation have kept the word "HAPPY" in the forefront! Well done, my friend, well done.

I always appreciate your heartfelt journaling, and I love the divided page protectors with all the lovely little cards. You should be very pleased with how this has evolved during the year.

Hi Cheri, I am so sorry I missed you this month. My mind was playing a trick on me because I was thinking about you the entire time half-thinking you were on the list but never checking with presence of mind. And another apology for my late appearance to the party. I am so glad I stopped by though, your page looks wonderful. I love those colors and teh butterfly, but the best part is your journaling. I am looking forward to seeing your final project and hearing your new word for 2012.
