I realize it's the end of January and I am choosing today to share my word for the year. Good things take time!

The process of acquiring a word each year helps bring into focus where I'm at in life. Somehow it brings a bit of clarity to all the thoughts, intentions and ideas swirling around in my head!

  Give it a try. Who knows where it will lead you!
 My word for 2012 was Joy. You can read about it here.

For 2013 this seems to be just right.


To construct by assembling or joining parts and materials.


To establish, increase, or strengthen.


To mold form or create.


To base; found: a relationship built on trust.

Build seems to suit the mode I'm operating in.  New projects and ideas are pulling me forward.

Having the word build in my psyche brings focus and patience for the many tasks required to reach a goal. 

Do you choose a word for the year?

“Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand.  The sun rays do not burn until brought into focus.”  ---Alexander Graham Bell

I'm in the mood for...

With Valentine's Day just around the corner whipping up a few "love" pillows seemed like a good idea.

If you find yourself loving these, they will be available Wednesday at Monticello Antique Marketplace in Portland, OR.

Or just enjoy looking at them right here!

Have a great week,
