My “Word” for 2012

I’ve given it a lot of thought and even looked back in my journals to see what I’ve chosen for the past few years.  I know it sets the mood for the whole year! Last year I chose Serenity!

So even though I can think of a lot of beautiful words, I’ve decided it is my year for “Create”!

I would like to create a home that is more comfortable and easier to take care of.

I would like to create a healthier lifestyle.

When I look at all of my sewing stash and art supplies, I know I want do more ‘creating’ artistically this year.

And I would like to create a sense of peace and harmony at home and on my blog.

This is the perfect word for me this year…

What a great word..I love to create.
I didn't choose a word for the year. I don't know why, I just didn't. I think if you don't mind I will borrow yours.."Create" yes its a grand word and works for me too!
We will "Create" together.
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Well, I think LuLu & Flora's word for the new year is "annoy" and they are off to a good start.

My word......yes, I think I agree with you "create". I think Mom & I are both going to work on creating this year. She is off to a good start - busy creating little Primitive Cook Cutter Animals. And she is making them smell like cloves and cinnamon. I am helping her - of course.

Hugs,
Prudence

Love your 'word' create. That leaves a wide world of avenues to pursue. Your pictures are superb.

My word was GIVING, more than I do. I need to expand this avenue for myself.

Have an awesome week ~
TTFN ~

Create is a perfect word for you and I can't wait to see what you create all year. I know it will all be good! This is my first year with the word thing, and I chose "listen."

Vee said...

Yes, and it's not nearly as lovely as yours. Create is a good word. I'll be fascinated what you do to make caring for your home easier.

mzzterry said...

Cherish is my word for this year. I want to cherish the people, places and things in my life.

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

It looks so beautiful every day where you are Diane. It won't be hard to create with a backdrop like that.
So far my word for this year would
be confusion (the menopause is getting to me!). I'm hoping I get to pick another word soon!
Hugs,
Susan

Miss Kitty said...

What a great idea! I've never thought of choosing a word for the year... But, if I were to choose, this year would be "Simple" :)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I like this word!!! :D Great choice.

Shelia said...

I love this idea! Create is a good word. Lovely snaps.
Thanks for popping in to me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sheila said...

That's a wonderful word and it will be fun to experiment with your photography and other crafts. I chose "Fitness" and since it's impossible to walk outside these days with the temperature at -35 today and the windchill at -40, I'm getting exercise quilting. My design "wall" is the floor and so I do a lot of bending and stretching when I pick up the pieces to sew! Have a great week!

Danice said...

"Create" is a perfect word and goal for 2012, Diane. Especially creating harmony and peace. Thanks for sharing the photos also, as they are lovely.

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh--you know I love THIS!!! Mine is "balance." I need to achieve it to get all I've got on my plate done! lol

It is the Chinese year of the Dragon this year and as I am was born in a Dragon year I am hopeing this will be a good year for me.

lila said...

Hi Diane!
I am chuckling to myself, your word "CREATE" has been the theme of my life, I think! what I need this year is a word like "slow-down", "organize", "simplify"...because I seem to always be in creative clutter and chaos!
I think you will do wonderful things with your "create"! have a good year! [I've seen lots of creativity going on here already!]

Annesphamily said...

I chose grateful! I love your word. It is a terrific choice! Enjoy your new year. I am glad I stopped by. Anne

Doreen said...

Perfect word Diane that is exactly what I would choose :)

Hugs, doreen

Becca said...

Wonderful word for 2012!

Betsy said...

Hi Diane,

We've chosen the same word! I thought about it for some time before the new year and that's what I came up with. So many meanings in that one simple word.
