There was a time when every January, I signed up for Ali Edwards’ year-long One Little Word workshop. It invariably went one of two ways: I stopped participating after 3 or 4 months, because I felt Ali’s suggestions weren’t working for me, or I finished the 12 months and had a skinny (and usually odd-sized) album I didn’t particularly care for.
Last year, very little happened with my word. Having chosen to stick with the same word for a second year, I’d determined to be more proactive with it. Enter the humble Traveler’s Notebook. Simple. Easy. Perfect. There are 28 double pages, so more than enough to record a year of nourishment, wouldn’t you say?
I was then left with the dilemma of what to record … but in the end, it was actually quite easy to decide on what to include. Trips away (home and abroad); my monthly reading list; walks in the park with The Brainy One; coffee with friends.
I’m looking forward to it being satisfyingly fat at year’s end.
