One Little Word

I've given up on resolutions. I never keep them. However, I like the idea of #onelittleword. I heard about it via Twitter, but wasn't sure where the concept started. Searching the hash tags eventually brought me to Ali Edwards' blog. Her idea was inspired by a photo blog of two friends that live 3191 Miles Apart.

Since Ali does scrapbooking, that is what she does. She uses her word to inspire her layouts. I don't really scrapbook. And that's ok. I'm using my word of CHANGE in other creative areas.

Change. Such a harmless, often misunderstood word. One that used to terrify this little former control freak. I'm happy with the person I've become, so I'm not looking for huge changes in who I am but changes in HOW I do things. To learn new things, to boldly go where I've never gone before. To push myself, to challenge myself.

I've since learned that change can be good. Sometimes it even happens when you're not looking.

So glad you are playing along and trying out the "onelittleword" concept. Mine is "Choose," and I made my first piece yesterday using the prompt. Let me know when you get going, I'll do a round-up and include you! Take care and crafty new year, Jenny at CraftTestDummies.com

Thanks, Jenny! I think I'm going to start with a collage. Or a painting.. So many possibilities!
