One Little Word blog hop for July

Scanning over my blogposts, it seems that One Little Word is the main thing triggering me to blog!  I guess that's a nice unintended consequence of signing up for the class.  But I have been so behind on the prompts this year, that this is my first blog hop for 2012.   Many thanks to Margie for organizing and keeping me on the email list!

My word this year is design.  It has been a good pick and a good fit for my goals for this year.  In fact, I was going through the dictionary/thesaurus prompt from January just last week (like I said, I'm BEHIND!), and I was really surprised by how many synonyms captured exactly what I have been focusing on this year by choosing this word, like action, accomplish, create, even big picture!

I had so much fun with the June prompt to play.  I didn't paint or make a mess, just pulled out some of my current favorite and inspiring patterned papers and moved them around on the floor for an hour or so until I found a combo that I liked.  And I love what I ended up with.  I am very deliberate when I scrapbook, and take forever to make a decision, even a decision to cut into the paper, that having permission to play and mess up and make something for no real purpose stretches me.  But that's a good thing.  And something I want to do more of.  Something I want from this word and for my creative life more generally.

Next up, Donna!

And here's the whole list if you want to check out everyone else's words:
