I jumping right into 2010 with my 'word' for the year... CREATE

I created this for a challenge on ~Artist 365~ (see below)
My 2010 Word:
This year I’m trying to explore my Artistic Side… Art Journals, Scrapbook Challenges, Altered Art, as well as creating a Family by getting married and hopefully pregnant.

Since it's 2010 I decided to commit to 10 things to do with 'Creating'.Most are Internet/Blog related and I'm hoping some of these commitments will overlap (photo's, topics etc...) I'm going to stretching myself as an Artist for most of them too.

1. Creating our "Family".
This in a large part will be wrapped up in Wedding Plans... Sept 25th will be coming faster as the days get closer and I'll be a Wife. I'm sure there will be many, many opportunities to 'create' things for the wedding too.
2. Creating "Harmony".
This year the house get de-gunged, de-cluttered and set up so we have space for everyone to be who they need to be and do what they need to do without being on top of each other while doing it
3. Your Life Spelled Out 2010:
This is a blog for those of you that want or need to journal but when a pen and paper are put in front of you your mind goes completely blank. This will be a daily starting place with words or questions that will inspire you to reach within yourself and unlock your thoughts and your creativity. For those of you that art journal, I will create weekly prompts just for you. Let the creative process begin
4. One Year Art Journal:
This blog is for YOU. It's not for Her. It's not for THEM. It's not for someday. It's for NOW. It's for YOUR rules. It's for YOUR ideas. The prompts and ideas here are for inspiration, and motivation to be creative, and create. I will post suggestions and ideas for art journals. The ideas are for you to take and make your own. Because the art you create using these ideas are YOURS, there is NO right or wrong way for you to interpret or create your art. PERFECT! Really. It's 100% up to you.Prompts Posted on the 15th and 30th of each month.
5. ~Artist 365~:

Scrapbooking is Cheaper than Therapy... Just a little of this... and a little of that... to come forth from the Scrapbooking Room.A place I will be posting my creative endeavors. WATCH THIS SPACE! ;O)
8. Grace in Small Things (GiST (My posts.)
Grace in Small Things as a daily reminder to take notice of the positive things we tend to overlook.Grace in Small Things exists because we are choosing not to allow the noisiness of life to rob us of the time and energy to be mindful of ourselves and those we love and to recognize the grace that exists in small things.Grace in Small Things is for YOU, because you deserve it.Grace in Small Things is a challenge for every day, because there's no time like the present, tomorrow never comes, and some other cliche about seizing the day. Oh, right: carpe diem.I will be continuing to create good, positive energy with this forum.
9. 365 Picture of the Day Blog:
Lipstick on The Coffee Cup Life with 4 boys, a fiancee, 2 dogs, a bunny, a home-business & an ex... etc... etc... Some days the cup is 1/2 empty... Some days the cup is 1/2 full...I will continue to post my POD (Picture of the Day).
