Happy New Year everyone!! It's been awhile since my last post mid December. It was a nice break for me but I'm so ready to get back and catch up with all of you. I hope you enjoyed your holidays. And I imagine that just like me, you are all ready for a new year😜
To begin, I'm sharing my word of the year for 2021 - awareness. You can see the full page as my new header along with - for the first time- I chose two supporting words alignment and connection.
Last year my word was manifest. How these new words came to me: AWARENESS was the strongest word that just kept coming to me yet the other two were beckoning me also. When I pulled out one of my Law Of Attraction inspiration decks I got goosebumps when opening the box and the card on top was- yup- AWARENESS! I won't go into it here but if you want to read more about it it's on my Instagram feed.
One more thing though. I wanted to know what spirit animal represents my word so I looked it up and it's the hawk. Only the day before the largest hawk I have ever seen in our yard was in our backyard tree on a branch and facing me as I looked out the window!
So tell me- do you choose a word for the year? What is it? Is there a story behind it?
Here's my first journal page for the new year:
I had done this journal page during my blogging break for a Darkroom Door Moodboard Challenge on Instagram using the colors of sand, a bright yellow and a deeper ochre yellow. I used Darkroom Door Coffee Time and Fine Flowers Vol1 stamp sets; Darkroom Door stencil-Circles(small). Done in my Dina Wakley Blue Edition Media Journal. Other- Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays; Peerless watercolors; Tim Holtz sticker; paper scrap; rust heart. Cheers!
Speaking of T Day- I received this wonderful holiday mail from our lovely hosts at Altered Book Lover Bleubeard, Elizabeth, and Squiggles:
