One Little Word 2014 :: CREATE

the definition of create, chalkboard art, create, one little word

: to cause (something new) to exist

  Noun :: the act of creating

I love the concept of picking ONE LITTLE WORD to keep me motivated for the year. I used to do a goal sheet every year but that just became depressing when I didn't achieve everything on it so I stopped doing that. I do love goal lists, but in this season of my life, right now, I needed something new. Then came along the genius idea of doing ONE LITTLE WORD and I jumped on board. Last year I chose HOPE as it was only fitting because what I had been going through personally & health-wise and I loved that word. Still do. HOPE is such a powerful word.

BUT this year, this year's word is perfect for my life this season. And YES it took me like 3 months to figure it out (don't laugh-lol) but it's all good. My One Little Word for 2014 is going to be  . . .

CREATE. What does this mean to me? 

I am getting back to my roots persay. What I was trained in & studied all of those school & college years ago. I'm going all "organic" on you. Back to my roots. My first loves. This is the time to get back to basics. Getting back to what gets makes me feel alive. Good old fashioned ART. This is why I love the word CREATE as it has the word ART right in it . . . so it's the perfect word for me this year. It means I will CREATE in various ways . . . whether creating in different organic mediums . . . acrylics, pastels, ink, watercolor , markers . . . to make a finished piece of art to sell to the masses . . . you will see me offer my artwork a variety of ways soon & it will all be organic & raw and I am so looking forward to sharing it all with you.

I will be sharing how I will CREATE a better home. I have put so soo sooo many home projects on the back burner for so long and this year it stops. I started last summer and I will continue to knock them off the list. It feels so good to finally be able to get those done.

I will share yummy treats that I CREATE in the kitchen. I LOVE to bake so you may see a creation or two here. ;)

Create. Is MY word for the remainder of the year. Heck, if you've been paying attention, this word is NOW part of my NEW name "Eye Candy CREATive Studio" . . . it fits better. It encompasses all that I will be talking about & sharing with you on here. I'm excited for this challenge I have given myself and I totally am ok with the fact that it's a few months slow getting started. Out with all the rules and just start. Start creating. Start making things. Start finding what makes you passionate. For me it's to CREATE.

I would LOVE to hear from you and know if you are doing the "One Little Word" this year and what exactly YOUR word is? Perhaps you will start now with me . . .if you do, let me know that too below . . . let's do this. ;)
