The Celebration!

The celebration call was a rousing success full of warmth, laughter and, yes, celebration! For those of you who couldn't be there, you were missed. But I wanted to be sure you didn't miss out, so I recorded the call so that you can take part in your own time. But if you're going to listen, I have one request: please, wherever you are when you're listening, do the happy dance along with everyone! And thank you to everyone who made the call. It was a joy to share the hour with you!

The Celebration Call Recording

Your Creative Spark...

I also have some big announcements and lots of wonderful news. First, I'd like to officially announce the release of Your Creative Spark: Inspiring Interviews with 12 Highly Creative Bloggers.

This is a collection of all of the interviews from our 12 weeks together - plus additional bonuses from the interviewees and complete transcripts. There's almost 3 hours of audio and 122 pages of text! I'm offering a special price until Sunday, April 5th at midnight! For more details and to order, go to

The Winner...

You may remember that people who participated in The Next Chapter survey were eligible for a draw to receive this collection for free.

And the winner is (drum roll please...): Boho Mom!!!
I'll be in touch with you soon about how to pick up your prize.

Our Next Book...

I am thrilled to announce that our next book is going to be playful, lively and a big stretch for some of us:

We'll be starting on Friday June 5, and I hope you'll play along. I will be creating a new blog home for us at There's nothing there yet but feel free to bookmark it or add it to your Google Reader. I'll be getting it started and opening up sign ups next week.

And this week, if you'd like to share your celebrations, intentions or reactions, or anything else for that matter, I've added one final Mr. Linky for The Next Chapter: The 12 Secrets edition.

My love to you all,

Congrats on your lucky winner.

Everyone who has participated in the 12 Secrets are winners, so much ground has been covered and inspirational posts shared.

Being delayed in starting the book and then moving house has kept me well behind the pace but have appreciated everyone's posts on the subject and their own interpretations.

Sorry I missed the call, but will happily listen to it today! And be ready to happy dance. :-) I've really, really loved going through this book, and reading others' responses to it. What a great project! I also can't wait for the next book...especially since we're starting in June, and June is when I make a major cross-country move that I am super excited about. New state, new book, let's go! lol! :-)

I just made an art journal page to celebrate our creative journey together. You've opened up my creativity -- I can't thank you enough.

I had so much fun on the call yesterday and look forward to The Next Chapter!

Ooohhh, I'm so excited about our next book, Wreck this Journal. I've been wanting to do this, but haven't gotten to it yet. I think there will be lots of creative breakthroughs for all of us! Thanks so much for hosting this creative soiree.
