So I was thinking about what to choose for my OLW this year and realized I could not remember what my word was last year... seriously I would have picked one right???
Perhaps this is not the project for me!

I'm sorry, but I got quite the chuckle out of that. Honestly, that would be something I'd do. I mean really...how hard can "One Little Word" be to remember?

LOL! Oh, who cares about last year? It doesn't matter now. Just choose a new and fresh word for 2013! But you might want to write it down somewhere...

I totally cheat. I put mine in my siggy line here. It's an excellent reminder for my "not so sharp" mind.

Whatever you do, do not make your 2013 word "FAIL." That would be kind of a downer...

Don't beat yourself up. Although I do know that I chose the word "Dream" last year, my efforts to do anything with it early in the year consisted of making three embellishments with the word on it. In April, I started an art journal with one of those embellishments on the cover, but it became clear to me as I journaled that my word really should have been "believe."

So this year, I've chosen "contentment" as the word, and I will see where it takes me. Will be the title of my first AJ page in 2013, but not sure what will happen with it after that.

It's a new year, a new slate. Just pick another word, Vicki. I flopped with my word last year. I had a hard time remembering to think about it, LOL!

you are not the only one, LOL! I think my word was "Strength" or "Fortitude" or something like that! But I got so busy with my new job that all thoughts of words slipped out of my mind soon after!

Luckily, I found the papers where I wrote down my word. Oh, did I mention that it is in KANJI! LOL! I can't even tell which word was mine and which was DH's! I scanned them and sent them to my neighbor to help me translate again, ha ha! She is the one that helped me in the first place so hopefully she can read my sloppy calligraphy to figure it out!
