What's the WORD?

Jenny from The Southern Institute of Domestic Arts and Crafts is featuring one of my necklaces in a giveaway.
She recently asked her readers to chose one word to focus on throughout the year.

One word that had the potential to make an impact on your life.

She wondered if her readers would like their word stamped on the necklace should they win (If not--I can stamp anything they want). So it got me thinking about one word that would make an impact on my life this year. My word would be:

CREATE


It has multiple meanings. Create your mood, Create your future, Create a family, Create written words or jewelry etc. ....


What would your word be?

If you want to enter to win my necklace (by the way, you can choose either the circle or open circle if you win), head on over...

I love your word. I have a towel in my bathroom that says, "Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself."

Great word! Mines would definitely have to be LIVE! I don't take many chances, but lately I've been feeling the urge to "live" my life and not just watch it pass me by.

MissNeira said...

hmm good choice for a word!

mine would have to be POWER.. the power to succeed..the power to be driven.. the power to create!

Christina Lee said...

wow lots of good words...

Harmony said...

I'm heading over there. My word would be "family".

Fertility Chick said...

Oohh! I love your word. Create has so many layers of meanings for me - especially now that I'm immersed in this IF world. But another word I would choose is: Believe. I know with the olympics it doesn't sound too original but I could use that word quite often too!

Great post -- going over to check out the contest..NOW. :)

Sturgmom said...

Another vote for "love" here.

You "create" beautiful work!

Elana Johnson said...

Very cool necklaces! I remember this one word thing. I don't remember what I said I would choose at that time, but right now, I'd go with family. :)

Kristin said...

Mine would be Achieve. I'm going after my dreams this year and having so much fun doing it!

Homesick Cajun said...

We discussed (yesterday I think) how much I've been wanting one of your necklaces lol! My word would have to be LEARN. I'm trying to get my GED right now...so that would be my word!

Janet said...

I'm thinking I'd choose peace. But I like create too.

The Budget Babe said...

my word would be Laugh. so many moments can be made lighter if we just remember to find the humor in them :)

Mother Chick said...

My word would be HAPPY. Fake it til you make it, right? But seriously, my goal for this year is to be genuinely happy. I'm working on it.

Lourie said...

I like DARE. Dare to change. Dare to try. Dare to act silly with your kids in a public setting.

ModernMom said...

Oh my word would be "FAITH"
Not so much faith in God, but that extra strength would be implied:) Faith in myself, in my kids, in my marriage. Faith that I am where I am supposed to be.
LOL Aren't you glad you asked?

Sharlene T. said...

My word is Share -- all that I can to return to the world what has been given to me. Now, I'm heading over to win my prize!

Balance. It is all I strive for everyday.

Bethany said...

Rachele Alpine said...

I love the necklace! I'd put "WRITE" on it. I think that would inspire me! :)

Shelle said...

The word that pops into my head off the bat is BEAUTY. I love to see the beauty in everything...I guess I'm a visual person...but the word seems to contain so many things...so here's to making everything beautiful in 2010.

LisaDay said...

All good choices. Believe. I too, think I like believe.
