A year ago I signed up for an online class on how to run a creative business, called Kelly Rae Robert’s Flying Lessons, given by an artist whose work I’d seen and fallen in love with. She’s talented, creative, bubbly, a possibilitarian, and she gave great guidance on her website. I wanted to be like her when I grew up (and of course, at my age I’m already older than her, but still, we all need a little guidance).
Nearly 400 creative souls came together for this course, some already successful artists, and others, like me, just exploring the possibilities of quitting our “day jobs” and making a living off of doing something we totally enjoy. A private group was set up on Facebook for us, so that we could ask questions about the course, learn about each other, and grow in the process. What ended up was a sounding board for not just our art, but our problems, our dreams, our successes, our failures. Here I thought I was just signing up for an online course and I ended up with not only that but the bonus of a whole bunch of new friends. Our group name is the Fly Tribe, as we learned to give flight to each other.
On this one-year anniversary of us getting together, we’ve decided to “pay it forward.” Kelly Rae is offering her Flying Lessons course ONE LAST TIME, so we all got together and made monetary contributions to fund not just one but 8 spots in this course, that we are giving away. We want others to experience what we did from this amazing course and be part of the next amazing group of talent. Kelly Rae Roberts has matched our gift, so now there are 16 spaces to be given away!
I got so much more out of this class than I ever dreamed possible, so thank you Fly Tribe. If you’d like to apply for one of these giveaway spots, click on the link. What are you waiting for? It could change your life!
Happy Anniversary! It’s been such a thrilling ride!
Yes it has!
Hey there Diane! Just popping by from FlyTribe to say happy anniversary. I love your tag line, “capturing the world one megapixel at a time”! Also love that photo of the laundry on the line. What is it about laundry on the line that makes one feel so soothed and comforted and safe? Happy second year. May we all soar. 🙂
Hi Sherry, and Happy Anniversary to you too! Yes, we are a lucky bunch, this Fly Tribe, to have each other. I don’t know what it is about laundry but I just love it. It’s so personal and yet so “out there.” Soar on!
Happy Anniversary Diane, fellow flier! What a great group to be a part of! Love that we creatives have our special place to hang, chat, inspire, exchange and just be!
Happy Anniversary, Fly Sistah! So thrilled to be soaring with you!
Happy Fly Tribe Anniversary, Diane. Your post made me “well up.” So happy to be flying with you!
Wonderful post, Diane, it has been an amazing year! I skipped down a bit, your photo of the iris is lovely, and I like it “tweaked” in photoshop too. Happy Anniversary!
Thanks, Sally, and Happy Anniversary to you too. Photoshop can be addicting, can’t it?
Happy Anniversary! I love our Fly Tribe! You are all wonderful, and a blessing in my life.
Happy anniversary, my friend! So glad we’ve connected through our wonderful Fly Tribe.
We have had an amazing year, haven’t we? I am glad that we have the chance to continue growing and learning together – I don’t know what I would do without my Fly Tribe! xo, Kathleen
Beautiful post, Diane! It’s wonderful to be flying with you on this creative journey. Happy Anniversary!!! ((hugs))
Happy Anniversary Diane! I absolutely love the photo in the banner of your blog. It is great to be a part of the Fly Tribe and looking forward to the coming year.
Happy Anniversary! I always love your photos and you’ve inspired me to give photoshop another whirl. I just wish I had more time in my day.
You and me both, Lori. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. When it comes to playing with Photoshop, I can’t get away from it in less than an hour. Think I need to improve my time management skills. Happy Anniversary to you too!
Hi Diane! Happy Anniversary! Here’s to a great year coming up! I am going to cut this short so I have time to go read some of your other posts 😉 especially the photoshop ones!
Happy anniversary, Diane!! xoxo L
Hi Diane, your photography is gorgeous and I so love the big shoes! It’s been great getting to know you and flying with you. Happy Anniversary and many, many more.
