I’ve finally decided on my word for 2011.  Embrace has actually been in my head for months now.  Probably since October when my sister and I were shopping and I bought her a bracelet that said “Embrace the Journey.”  Actually I bought two that day . . . one for her and one for me.  Carrie turns 50 this year and it was an early birthday present so that she would look at turning 50 in a more favorable light that regretting it.

For me the word embrace encompasses many aspects of my live that I want to improve . . . relationships, family, fun, health!  You get the idea!  My list could go on and on, so I’ll stop now.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is . . . I get out of bed and instead of saying “oh I don’t want to get up, I don’t feel like it,” THINK POSITIVE . . .  Good morning sunshine!  Get up and embrace the adventures that come your way . . .  it’s gonna be a great day!

I truly don’t know how I could pick any other word!

I’ve yet to get into the studio for fun projects and right now I have it all torn apart while I try to put the holiday decorations away.  You see I store them in a spare close in the studio and to get in the closet I have to move some things around.  My goal is to get all that done this evening so I can go create!

That’s all I have . . . just some jibber jabber and blah blah blah . . . .

Have a fabulous day and embrace all that comes your way today!

Oh Man!  I forgot something and had to come back to add to this post!  I have an extra copy of Craft ‘n Things that I would like for one of you to have!

I’ll do a random draw and announce on Wednesday morning!  Just leave a comment and let me know what your word, if you have one, for 2011 is!
