Big Idea Festival! Words to Live By

 A FREE festival packed full of big ideas at Big Picture Classes this August! Join us for 12 fun-filled days featuring 12 of our talented instructors. Each instructor will be giving you a word of the day, which we hope will inspire you, along with a downloadable template (in both printable and digital format) so that you can create a mini layout about that day's word and how you applied it in your life. Finally, each teacher will leave you with an inspirational video message and a preview of the page they created with their word.
This is I have decide to not only participate but post what I create every day or in this case three days worth.

           DAY ONE:
           Word: SHARE
 I have followed Ali Edward for some time even took a class from her. I read her blog daily(or when she post) Ali always says to just write down your feelings ,you can't go wrong, Don't make excuses your love ones will treasure your handwriting. My best treasure from my mom is her handwritten recipe cards, so I should know this but my excuse was I have bad hand writing. Really who cares, so here is the first handwritten journaling I have done( really any journaling) Yes I need to write in a straight line will practice this.I jounaled about sharing the love that never increase or decreases when have children and gradchild.
