Here it is! The Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook, calendar + a free course to help you find your word for 2015! |
This is definitely my favourite time of year. Not because it’s Christmas, though that is lovelier than ever now my nephew is here. No, it’s because I get to make you guys presents. I’ve been getting lots emails asking if I was making the workbook this year and it makes my heart so happy to know it’s making a difference — I love this little yearly tradition we’ve got going on! So without further ado, here is this year’s Unravelling the Year Ahead 2015:

Here it is! The Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook, calendar + a free course to help you find your word for 2015! |
I haven’t tinkered with the format too much this year because I really like being able to compare my answers to last year’s. There’s something about the continuity that helps me see how my dreams are changing and growing. I’ve added a couple of new pages, just to keep things fresh, and of course we have a beautiful new design (thank you, Jo! Go check out her gorgeous leggings!) AND there’s something else you might want to check out…

Find your word for 2015! |
For the last five years of sharing the workbook I’ve asked you to choose a word to be your guiding light for the coming year. I usually start considering what my word might be when autumn rolls around but this year has been different. I’ve been so caught up in my book deadline I haven’t spent as much time with my usual word-finding practices and I find myself here in December unsure of what my word will be. And because I know some of you might be feeling the same I decided it was about time we had a way to divine our words together!

Introducing Find Your Word, a FREE 5-day email class to help you figure out your word for 2015.

It’ll be simple, useful, creative and meaningful (of course ;-) Read more and sign up over here!

Enjoy! xo

December Reflections |
Introducing the very first December Reflections!

I so enjoyed doing the August Break photo challenge this year I thought it would be fun to do something similar to end the year on a creative high! Like the AB, the idea is to take a photograph every day in December as a way to pay attention to what’s around you and reflect on the year that’s closing.

I’ve put together 31 photo prompts so we have something to photograph or share each day. We have an Instagram hashtag — #decemberreflections — a Flickr group if you prefer to share photos there and also a blog roll so we can find new blogs to read.  

December Reflections |
All the details are over on this page and we start December 1st — fancy joining me?

By the way, this isn’t meant to be another obligation — it’s simply a lighthearted way to make the most of the last month of the year and maybe make a few new friends along the way. I’ll be sharing my photos on Instagram and can’t wait to explore the hashtag (we had over 22,000 photos shared on IG in August. Crazy.)

* And for those of you who were expecting this to be the workbook, have no fear! The Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook for 2015 will be ready for you NEXT WEEK with an extra treat to help you figure out your word for 2015.
