2015 {the year to engage}

i have been trying to figure out what my word for 2015 should be. my process for this has been to think of a word, or if i see a word, think about how it relates to me, my art work and my process; which has usually ended with me discarding the word.

i have been toying with the word "engage" for 2015. to be more engaged with my art. to submit information to more magazines or places- you cannot be published or share your work or ideas- if you do not even submit the information anywhere. i can't sell anything in my etsy store if i never put items there.....

i do feel like this is my word for 2015 and somehow now seeing this article come together for you, makes it even more right.

i have a funny story to share- on New Year's Eve there was a post on instagram where you had to tell them about something for, trying out my word- i said, to be engaged- all in. well, i few short hours later i got this reply back saying how excited they were and looking forward to seeing my wedding plans?!.....and it took me a moment to figure out what in the heck they were talking about- hahaha.....! so no wedding plans, but, plenty of engagement of art- post, list, submit, share, engage.......

  1. Cute story. Sometimes we see a word the way we want to see it, and others see it differently. I guess that is part of the fun. :)
