One Little Word 6x6 Canvas

I am teaching a class at Stampin'Cat next week that is based on Ali Edward's "One Little Word" idea and philosophy. If you've not heard of it before, the idea is that you choose one word to focus on each year. That word helps inspire and motivate you as you achieve your goals, stick to your resolutions and so on, throughout your year. It is a very powerful thing. I'm teaching a canvas class where we'll take a 6x6 Canvas and make an art piece that highlights our word for the year. I'm revisiting an old word: Do. I loved this word a few years ago, and as I reflected on what I wanted to accomplish in 2009, it seemed appropriate to use it again. I used paint, crackle paint, some of my favorite stamps (Tim H0ltz and CatsLife Press) a metal "muse" token from Tim Holtz, and some random bits of lace and velvet. I stamped the saying onto mulberry paper, and used collage gel to adhere it to the canvas. I highlighted some of the grungeboard pieces with the new Distress Stickles. LOTS of fun putting this together!

This was too important to keep to myself!

I saw it first on Cathy Zielske's blog--but I have women friends like this, and I knew I had to share it here~

I am moving closer to the land of the well...thanks for your good wishes!

I went to the Doctor...

and I have a viral infection (H. shared his 5th's disease apparently), an ear infection, pink-eye, and a sinus infection (all bacterial infections). I don't have bronchitis or pneumonia. Thank goodness for that.

...and Thank goodness for antibiotics. Here's to a better tomorrow!
