Not sure if any of you are familiar with Big Picture Scrapbooking?
Big Picture is a group of inspiring teachers and designers from many walks of life, with different and unique talents teaching online classes to little sponges like me ;)

Anyways, right now and for the next week or so... they have something called Big Idea Festival.
The theme is Words to Live by.... each day a new instructor gives us a pdf with a word, the instructors definition of what the word means to them, a few examples of how they turned their word into a work of art using photos and words.... (ie scrapbook pages) and some pictures of their classes they teach there so you can get a feel  for their style etc.

Many of their classes are crafty/art/scrapbook related, but there have been several I have taken there that simply changed the way I think ... reflect.

Even if you decide not to do the classes, there are several free prompts, tons of inspiration and a comraderie that is built from taking a step on a journey with like minds.

Have any of you taken any online classes?  If so, what are your favorite kinds of online classes... what types of classes interest you? What do you look for in a great online instructor etc?

I was interested in this. I may be doing some online classes soon and was curious what my readers were interested in learning about? I would LOVE to know what your thoughts are...

I leave you with this for today...

"Many are so caught up in their own problems that they cannot see the big picture. Often, seeing the big picture can give one the perspective that makes illusive solutions suddenly easy to visualize. One form of hope can be accessed through stepping outside of yourself and seeing the bigger picture. "
