I'm Looking Forward... And Something For You

(Looking forward means eating Lorna Doones for breakfast, right?)

I've been trying to step a tiny bit out of my comfort zone, and embracing trends before they're three years old. I did that with a chevron phone wallpaper (which I keep meaning to share with you, but now it's almost too late) and now I'm doing it again, with the One Word Resolution/Year Theme Thing.

I have to admit, I do like the idea of keeping one thing in mind throughout the year, and trying to find ways that it can be applied to different aspects of life. I chose "Forward."

(I will allow you to ignore the fact that there's no glass, and that the frame is held on the wall with those 3M tabs. I would have just put a nail in the wall, but I don't know where the electrical/gas is…)

I will be forward-thinking, and try to keep the house and finances under control this year. I will allow life to take me forward to a better place emotionally. I will remember that Monkey is always moving forward, and try to play with him and converse with him every chance I get, instead of getting frustrated that he's climbing on my lap when I'm trying to accomplish things. I'm looking forward to 2012, instead of back at 2011.

You can download the image yourself here. (right-click, etc.)

Also, I really enjoyed making this, and I'm rather proud of how I combined various layer effects to make the word look like that… And so here's the thing. I will make one for you, with your word resolution, or your name, or whatever you like! Just leave a comment with the word and a link to a picture (or a description, or pattern, and I'll see what I can do.) I'll work with you through the email you provide when you comment, and hopefully we can come up with something lovely! Since I do only have limited time, I'll only do this for five people (as if I have five readers, haha), but I may expand it later if I feel like it. Also, if you prefer not to leave a comment, you can email me at TheMamma@eclecticmamma.com. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Sorry, comments are disabled for this post.
