One Little Word Blog Hop...

Hello and welcome to my blog, I am hoping you got here from the
link from Amy at http://reflectivesnapshots.com. We are all doing
this little blog hop to see how we are all doing with our own
One Little Word so far this month. The blog hop is starting at

8am PST today, 1st February. This is a project that Ali
Edwards has been doing for herself for several years and has
created the class, which you can link to from the button on my
sidebar, to help reinforce the word throughout the year for her
and anyone else who is choosing
a word. Above is my title photo
for the month of January.

The page above is our prompt for January, this explains all about
our word and why we chose the word that we did. I am still not
sure if I am finished decorating this page, I thought I would leave
it for a while and see what I thought later.
I have written a little about my word choice on an earlier blog
post. I chose the word "BE" as it really can mean so much for
me to get through some changes that will be happening in my
life this year.
I found that this word has been popping up in other areas and so I
know that this word was the right word for me to focus on this year.
An example is this quote above, I had pulled this page out of a
magazine a couple of years ago and filed it in my inspiration file.
Strangely enough I was looking through that file just last week and
saw it. I am going to include it in my binder for the class to remind
me of this great quote.

Now you know a little about me and my word please go and visit

Monica said...

I love the little card that says Be. Are those gel letters? the art piece is lovely as well. thanks for sharing!

Maureen said...

It is amazing how our word keeps popping up when we are open to seeing it. "Be' is often so neglected in favor of 'do'.
