How many of you are participating in Ali Edwards’ One Little Word class this year? Have you done it in the past?
This is my first year, and I’m already loving it. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out all the details HERE – you can sign up anytime, and it lasts all year long.
My word for 2012 is “Strength”.
This is my cover page for my album. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
I was very happy to be off work Monday (duh) and I spent a good portion of my day off working on my January prompt from Ali. Before I show you what I did, let me give you a little background:
2011 was, well…a crappy year for my family and I. Not all bad, mind you, but big picture, not the greatest ever. We faced a lot of loss, injuries, personal and emotional stress….on and on. It seemed as though we would take one step forward, and then a giant leap back. We couldn’t win for losing.
Through it all, though, we have held onto one another and our faith. I honestly couldn’t have survived the year we had without my Father and my husband.
So, this year, in 2012, my focus is to be stronger. Stronger physically – I will be exercising and eating healthier. Stronger emotionally – I will be a rock for my husband and daughter. And I will be able to let things roll of my back.
I started collecting images and quotes of strength on Pinterest a few weeks ago once I decided on that word. You can see my full board HERE.
I used several of these images and quotes in my collage:
And, my self-portrait for my album:
I’m really excited about this little project for 2012. I’d love to know if you are participating as well so we can follow each other on this journey.
Good luck in 2012!
