Rock a Paradigm Shift

“It's not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What's hard, she said, is figuring out what you're willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.”

What will you do in the year ahead? Not resolutions. Just an area of focus. Or two.

This is my first little collage of the year... stitched on a 3x5" index card divider {the color and weight of a manila folder}. I'm going to create 365 of SOMETHINGS. I'll start with collage. It might morph into pillowcases or paintings or pumpkin carving for all I know. And by the way, Hanna is doing this 365 collages challenge where she is challenging us to make 365 somethings. I like that idea. 

{Note: There's now a fancy new Flickr group for 365 Somethings: Please join us!}

Many people will focus on a specific WORD for 2013, one word to remind us where to focus, how to be, what project to do next. I have to tell you the truth here, I just cannot figure out my word for the year ahead. So just in case one word doesn't sum up your year ahead, you can pick a few. It will be our little secret. Or you can share your MULTIPLE words in the comments. I'm never scared to go against the grain. And I might still pick one word, I am working on that.
