Happy New Year!

I have been running in circles trying to get everything back in order after the holidays. I am sure you are all feeling the same way.

Liz and I always start the new year with a new inspiration word for the year. I have tried several on for size and rejected them. The hardest thing is to try and find 1 word that covers all the bases. I have decided to go with expand.

Expand may seem like a strange choice but I want to try new things, apply them to my art and grow. One of the definitions for expand is to step up, or to escalate. I think this is going to be a great word of inspiration for me this year.

How about you? Have you chosen a word for the next year? I challenge you to choose a word that will allow you to embrace the new year.

    Hi Ruth! ... I recently signed up for emails from the Cloth, Paper, Scissors community and got an email the other day that was a good fit for me ........ someone shared about giving advice to "your 20 year old self"... her words to her younger self were "Let Go"...
    Those words lifted my heart ...... I looked up synonyms for "Let Go" ... forgive, set free, release, move on, clear, soften, relax, expand, it's all right, kiss and make-up, dance, lark, roll with the punches, simplify and have fun ... they all work for me! I am choosing "Let Go" to embrace the New Year :) I think I'll make a bunch of prayer flags with those messages and hang them throughout the house :)
