I hope everyone is having a great 2013 so far! I’m lying in bed sick today but can’t complain cause I’ve got an amazing husband who is taking care of the kiddo (she has been such a Daddy’s girl the last few days) and I’ve also been watching mixed media/art journal videos on YouTube. If I can’t create at least I can get inspiration, right?
So anyway, since today is the first day of the new year (which I am SOOO excited about!) I thought I would share my one little word for the year with you.
For the past two years I haven’t been able to pick “one little word”, it has always been two. In 2011 my words were move and pray, and 2012 was create and celebrate (create was a huge success, celebrate not so much).
For 2013 I have had just one word stick out to me: serve (though I do find it slightly ironic that I chose that word and then ended up sick and having to be served . . .).
In 2013 I want to serve:
* my husband and strive each day to be a better wife
* my daughter – she really is a blessing to have and I think this word will be a great one on days/times when I am feeling frustrated with her
* my friends and family
* my community
* people across the world
I have a feeling this word will be showing up in various forms through my art through the next 12 months.
Did you choose a word or two for 2013? I would love to hear what they are!
And randomly, here’s a canvas I made yesterday:
I hope your 2013 is starting out well!
