It’s the 4th Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time to join up with Carolyn and share how I’m doing with my 2021 One Little Word: Create.
I’m happy to say that I’ve stuck with the prompts from Ali Edward’s class for the 2nd month in a row. This is truly an accomplishment because February is always the dreaded vision board month and I’ve always avoided the prompt. It’s not that I’m opposed to creating a vision board (or collage, as we called it back in the ’70s) it’s just that I don’t subscribe to magazines and that right there creates a problem when it comes to gathering materials for the project.
But, Carole, you might say, you work in a library! Yes. Yes, I do, and this year I remembered to snag some of the magazines we were discarded before they were gone. I cut out lots of photos and words, basically anything that made me feel good. After a few sessions of that I sat down with my pile and started sorting and studying. It wasn’t long before I realized I had two things coming through in a big way . . . nature . . . and serenity. I arranged and rearranged and finally settled on this layout:
I kind of love it! I had fun creating it and it’s now propped on the mantel in my studio. I am going to print out a photo of it for my One Little Word binder and journal on the other side about how those photos and words make me feel.
I think they illustrate in a really fabulous way so much about the life I am attempting to create.
