Ali Edwards always does this thing where you pick a word and post it somewhere so it can be seen everyday and focus on this word and what it means to you. Sort a goal if you will, well I have decided on LISTEN.

I have a really hard time listening. So I am working on listening this year instead of always blabbering. I also need to listen to others and focus and concentrate on what others are saying instead of talking over top of people and not absorbing anything they say. I do it to everyone. I don't think I can help it, my mind never rests so it's constantly turning things over.

Anyway so I thought I would share that with ya'll. I am going to make something significant, some sort of altered item. Which was an inspiration from KKG.

So be on the look out for that. I had so much time this weekend to scrap and didn't feel like it (GASP) I know, But that clipboard of Krystal's was inspiring to me. I love those colors and they are close to my scrap room colors so look for something soon.
Thanks for the inspiration Krystal.
Happy Monday

I love your "2008 Listen" paper piecing ... what a great way to really get "into" your chosen word!! Listen is a great word as well.

I saw that on Ali's blog too ... the first word that popped into my head was ABSORB. I live life ... and I think we are pretty adventurous ... but I want to ABSORB those experience. Not just live them ... but absorb them.
