WordHop 2012


The FlyTribe is excited to share another blog hop with you.  Around the end of last year, several Fliers began sharing the words they had chosen as their guiding word for the new year. As artists and creatives, we work together to inspire each other, so organizing a blog party around the words we were choosing to be our teachers for 2012 just felt right.

Choosing a word to lead you through your year became a trend in blogging several years ago when Ali Edwards began sharing her One Little Word journey through out the year.  She found that it is a simple but powerful way to bring meaning to your life.  Her one little word has now taken off and grown into a movement, a movement we are excited to take part in.

Below is a list of posts by FlyTribe members and our guests who are creating their lives with their own little words. We hope you will join us as we adventure through the landscape of the web to support the writers' journeys and to be inspired by them. You can expect that over the course of the year these artist/blogger might share posts that follow the insights offered by their word, including works of art that specifically explore what their word has come to mean to them.

If you would like to claim your own word for 2012, leave it in the comments below. If you have a blog post that features your own little word, feel free to join the hop!

The FlyTribe will be creating a collaborative art piece with the words left in the comments, along with our own, to be shared at the end of the year.  The proceeds of sales from the piece will go to charity.

We would also like the thank Ali Edwards for inspiring us and creating a space for us to grow as individuals and to come together as a Tribe. Thanks, Ali!

  15. I'm so excited to read everyone's words for 2012 and bask in the spirit of this wonderful group of women!

    My word is "gift" and it has multiple meanings for me this year. Already, as I've been living with it, it has revealed more and more to me.

    Happy 2012. May we all stay true to our words.

  30. My word is reveal. Yes that's an odd word, but in my case appropriate. Art does reveal much about us and how we personally see the world. In my case,as I am a reincarnationist, the reveal of past lives is a matter of continuously spiraling out information that has definitely affected my own art.

  31. It was very difficult to figure out a way to express my word (Balance) through yarn, (I'm a fiber-artist) so I decided to go the other way and represent a total lack of balance, and explain why I chose the word as my inspiration for the year :)

  32. I am happy to be able to join in with you all and share each others words this year! My word for 2012 is SHINE.

  33. This was such a great experience. Not ever having done a blog hop I hope I did it all right. My word is honesty. I am so thankful to all of you for keeping me believing and moving towards being a better artist and woman! xxx

  43. This is awesome to be able to be a part of and I gain so much inspiration from reading everyone's posts about their word and what makes it personal to them!

  44. there seems to be a lot of word choosing in blogland these days. I'm participating in a Book of Days with Effy Wild who also asked us to choose a word. Mine is "enough". I have enough, I am enough, I've had enough, etc etc. It's amazing how this manifests itself in ,y life everyday. Today, for instance, I'd had enough coffee at 1pm, but couldn't say no to my co-worker who was going out for more...now, I'm dealing with that indulgence I didn't need. Tomorrow, I will try again to remember I am enough, I have enough, and stop when I need to

  45. Hey thank all you lovely ladies for this experience! When I read that there are others that feel the same things I feel it doesn't seem like such a big scary world to live in because I come to realize we are all more alike than we are different. This has been fun.

  50. I want to thank all of you for participating. For the first hop on our FlyTribe Blog, I think this was richly successful. I especially want to thank those of you who are flying with us for the blog. The FlyTribe came together out of the generosity and guidance of one creative soul, Kelly Rae, and we love getting to pass her style of support and encouragement on.

    ~On behalf of the other Fliers, Rae

  59. Traci here- my word is Worthy. I will remind myself that I'm worthy of of all good things such as abundance, compassion for myself, luck, happiness, acceptance, joy, etc. So many times we stifle ourselves and let fear get a hold of us. By reminding myself I'm worthy then I have an affirmation to combat negative thoughts.
