FlyTribe Anniversary

It has been just over one year since I took the Kelly Rae Roberts course Flying Lessons and became part of the only FlyTribe as we call ourselves. Now, I had been a fan for a while since reading her book Taking Flight by NorthLight years before. This creative woman just seems to ooze inspiration from every pore of her body and it is quite infectious. I was totally in awe of her journey to become an artist and share her talents with the world. The Flying Lessons ecourse takes you on an artistic exploration of what can happen when you dedicate the time, do the work and trust your heart's intuition. It shares step-by-step different ways to achieve your goals, dreams and discover your own ambitions. To give back our FlyTribe raised enough money to help 8 artists lead down the path of possibilities. Kelly Rae generously agreed to match our pledge and this will help 8 more totaling 16 artists whose lives will be forever changed by this ecourse. To be considered for one of these wonderful sponsorships, please follow the guidelines here on the FlyTribe Blog.

I can't tell you the importance of an online community, I have great respect for my group, their trials, tribulations and successes - we have shared, supported and experienced it all with one another. Has it been an easy road, absolutely not. But if you celebrate the smallest of victories and realize it takes baby steps to get you where you are going, it will be an incredible journey. I hope you will join my band of creative sisters in celebrating our one year anniversary together. Thank you ladies for a creative collective I never expected to be a part of!
