Living The Dream with Big Picture Classes

When I first decided to create a blog, picking out the name was one of the easiest steps. I often say (albeit with sarcasm at times!) “I’m living the dream!” You know, when I’m cleaning up doggie doo-doo off the carpet, making dinner for kids who refuse to eat anything but chicken nuggets, trying to make ends meet…in general.

But the truth is…I really am. I have two beautiful children, a husband, a house and relatively good health.

Yet pursuing your dreams is a constant endeavor. Whether it’s to write that book (who? me?!), climb that mountain, visit that city, learn to play that instrument….if we don’t carve out time to identify our dreams and then spend time (even just a little) to make them happen. Sometimes, some dreams stay just that….dreams.

I love Big Picture Classes (an online, creative environment where you can find classes of all kinds…from photography to journaling to scrapbooking and so much more) and when I saw that Stacy Julian (the fearless leader of Big Picture Classes and an enthusiastic, authentically wonderful person) had assembled a team of 10 other fantabulous, creative teachers (called the Creating Keepsakes Dream Team) for a 20-day online course called, HELLO?!!! “Living Your Dream” I was all like, “Stacy, we NEED to talk!”

Of course I’m going to take the class. But what I’m most excited about is sharing it with YOU! Not only will one of you have the chance to win a seat in the class with me but I will share my journey with you and I really hope that you decide to take the  journey as well.

The class (which is presented by Creating Keepsakes Magazine along with Big Picture Classes) starts June 28, 2012 (you can find more about it and how to sign-up here).

But I’ll be sharing more details with you soon as well.

Until then, I have one question for you….

Are You Living Your Dream?



  1. 1

    Thanks for the Big Picture Classes tip! Am living my dream, or rather several, but there are always new ones to pursue. My trip to Shanghai was the latest dream realized after much time spent talking about it.

    A very inspiring post! I am living my dream of being a freelance writer, but like Annette says, there are always new dreams and goals to focus on. There are still stories I long to write. I would also love to travel more and I’ll be a parent in a few weeks, so those are the next few dreams I will work to accomplish. Thanks for letting us know about the Big Picture Classes!

    Yay! I’m so glad to see our upcoming class on your blog (FUN.) As for your question, YES … I am living my dream, but it is easy to forget isn’t it? That’s why I love the idea of this online course — it will be a chance to interact with others and hear and share stories about life and dreams and the chance we have to continually recognize and reshape our dreams. Btw … love your website!!

    Some things, yes; others, not so much. But I think the important thing is that I’ve identified the changes that I want and need to make and I’m doing something about it.

    I’m not leaving my dream yet. I still have a long road to go but at least I chose a direction. 🙂
