Confession: I am terrible at New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t make it past January 3rd. In 2011, my resolution was to wear more lipstick at the office. I actually stuck to that one.
I was looking for something similar this year, something that wouldn’t crush my soul if I forgot about…. and then I saw some buzz on facebook that all of my crafty friends were talking about their “word” for the year.
I checked it out, and knew this was something that I had to do for myself this year. If you need one little word, you can check out Ali Edward’s class.
2011 was a bummer for this family. We moved (which is always traumatic for me no matter how positive it is), we lost my dad (worst thing in the world, always), my best friend was very sick and very far away, I lost a lot of my creativity for a while… I was determined this year was going to be better. Well, at least until December when the Mayan calendar makes the world end.
My word for this year is BREAKTHROUGH. There are so many different areas this applies to for me, I am excited to focus on it.
Here is my project for January (which I DID complete in January, I was just debating whether or not to blog about it.)
I have some sentiments here that I created that I thought might help those of you that have a word, or those of you that are just needing some inspirations for your crafting. Enjoy!
