this adorable image from ireland rose nostalgia on etsy just stole my heart. i can hear her saying, "are you ready? we can do this. let's just try!"

the word i have chosen for myself this year is forward. it's a common word yes, but the meaning speaks volumes to me: belonging to the front; eager, ready; brash, bold' notably advanced or developed; precocious; moving, leading to a position in front; ready for the future; extreme, radical. this adjective gets me fired up and that is exactly why i picked it as my word for 2013.

i did a short video of my art journal page with this image as my inspiration, hope you will take a peek https://vimeo.com/57915189

so what's your word this year?


are you joining in?

my second online e-course starts Thursday and I cannot wait. this has been one of my favorite classes to put together because anything goes. i was able to add gears, goggles, bolts, nuts, washers and all the left over parts of anything else i could find in order to steampunk it up. who knew my brain could think this crazy stuff up for 6 projects? okay, i guess i knew i was capable but imagine my excitement when it actually looked like the picture in my head. that thrilled and scared me beyond belief LOL

i do hope you will join me. the class is open for 6 months and all that is needed is a little adventurous creativity on your part. if you want more info, check it out here http://kellyhoernig.webs.com/ecourses.htm
