I was thinking about which WORD would do me best for 2014. Last year my word was ENOUGH, and I still like that one… I was going to go with JOY, as that is my life mission, to be happy. To be ME from a place of HAPPINESS…
I have found over the years that when I'm handing over a quilt, during any of the Bumble Beans Basics events, I find my greatest JOY. Why? through sharing. Lately, when ever I'm teaching, giving, talking about quilts, I find that same JOY… It's all about sharing… Make, create, and give it away…
So I took a few minutes today, to make something short, easy and fun. My word for the YEAR…. SHARE. A good reminder, which leads to my JOY.
SO. This is the next challenge! What WORD is your WORD for the year?
I hope you've been thinking about it since I gave that hint back at the end of the last challenge… What word can be your guiding light this year?
Make a fun small banner, or mini quilt, or whatever you want it to be, just make it and FINISH it… This is not meant to be a UFO! Make it fast,
make some fabric into your design.
How can you use the made fabric to create your word?
On mine, I did reverse appliqué. I have to quilt mine yet, but I got my top together very quickly, so that I will finish it… It's all about the WORD…
You have ONLY til the end of this month, January, to get it made… Work fast, get it done, and let's hit the ground running for 2014 with a happy, creative year!
Then be prepared… Their may be another challenge for you to Make and GIVE something away. ;-)
But YOU first… Make your piece, post about, share your process and why you chose your word.
Want to participate and email me a pic of your creation to post for you?
Email me your pic (if you don't have posting rights) with a blurb about your word…
Please write it in a regular email format, so I can grab it and post..(TIME is an issue this year with all the traveling I'm doing) DO NOT send it in a word doc form. I can't do that quickly...
No links out of the site, people come here to see your inspiration.
