Hello and Welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop! If you came here from Jamie's blog, welcome! You made it to the right place. Grab a drink and stay awhile! I love visitors!
If you are a regular reader, you already know the drill! ;) The entire hop goes live at 8:00 a.m. Pacific (11:00 my time) so if you are early, just check back later to catch everyone!
My one little word for 2011 is "happy". I am focusing this year on what it means to be happy, what makes me happy, how mindful I can be about choosing happiness. June was a difficult month and I'm happy to be in July now! :)
Here's my One Little Word Album page for June:
Since I've really just gotten into mixed media art, I had a lot of fun putting this month's page together.
The quote is from the Close to My Heart "Treasure Life" stamp set and reads: May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.
I googled the quote hoping to be able to attribute it. I discovered there was more to the quote than appears on the stamp, but did not find an origin. I do think it is very appropriate for a focus on the word "happy" though - don't you think so?
While I was busy playing with the mixed media, I also got this background page going in my art journal:
Haven't yet decided how I'll finish it off, but I had fun trying out some new techniques that I learned from the Life Journaling class over at The Paper Life.
