I've been familiar with the practice of choosing a word to live by each year, but this is the first year I have decided to go for it. I had actually been thinking a lot about what changes I wanted to make and what goals I had for 2010, and the word I chose was born from those thoughts - balance. As I figure out how to be a stay-at-home-mom, settle into a new life in a new place, run my Etsy shop, explore my hobbies, and serve in my church, I hope to find a balance in my life that brings happiness and fulfillment. I was going to make an altered canvas of my word (and I still might, given the time), but when I saw the new Sketchy Thursdays sketch, I knew it was the perfect format to celebrate my choice. I also had fun using my new profile image as the photo :).
Here is the sketch:
Here is my take:
Check out Sketchy Thursdays for all the details, a look at last week's favorite layouts, a spotlight of our new guest designer, and of course - the amazing prize and sponsor!
Have a wonderful Thursday! Tessa
