to be engaged in creative work
to produce through imaginative skill
to cause to come into existence
to be the cause of
 to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
to evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention

I have decided that create will be my word for the year.
Yep. I jumped on the word-of-the-year bandwagon. :)
 And to remind me of this word I made this bracelet that I can wear almost every day.
It's a leather bracelet I found at Michael's. I stamped my word into a metal Vintaj plate and attached it with some white quilting thread (yes, that used to be white!) To make the words pop more I added some white paint and wiped off the excess.
Here it is on my skinny little wrist.
Excpet it's usually piled on with more like this:
And I chose this word not only because I want to create more art, but because I'd also like to concentrate on creating the following:
* a healthy marriage
* a happy home
* delicious meals
* an atmosphere of love in our home
* happy memories for the kids
* a sense of worth
* good deeds
 * more time in the word and with God
* a great circle of friends
Well, I could go on. But there you have it.
I'm linking up to:
 Zeus and Zoe since their current challenge is to use your word of the year!
Thanks for stopping by today!
