I just completed my January prompts for Ali Edward's One Little Word project. I admit, when I signed up for this, I wondered if the project would really help me make my chosen word a reality. Would I actually feel like my word [PEACE] was tangible and more a part of my heart and thoughts??...just from a scrapbooking project?? After today, I'm encouraged and thrilled that the answer to that question is YES. Just a couple hours working on the January homework, and I already feel like I've learned a little about who I am. And who I want to be. In relation to the word, peace.
We had to take a self photograph for the first page. (Yes. I have my dreads back. I will give you a heads-up, they are crazy and colorful...it's a shame I'm such a subtle person:). Then, for the second larger page, I filled in the class cards: the definition of PEACE, synonyms, my invitation, because, and a PEACE quote. It all made me reflect on why I chose this word for 2012. And where I hope it takes me.
It is a splendid project that I'm totally enjoying. Can't wait till February! Are any of you doing One Little Word?? Leave me a link to your posts! I'd love to peek at your own progress!!
