AEzine challenge

Here it is... my word for the year. Ali Edwards challenge this week was to pick a word you would claim as "yours" for the year... Mine is EMBRACE...
and here is a mini album to keep near my work area (or move about the house as needed!!LOL) to remind me... I already put it into practice last night... I gathered all my supplies and headed into the living room to watch The Apprentice with Micah and make this...
Was hauling my stuff out to the living room a pain? yep...
Was working on my little floor table more challenging? uh-huh...
Did I make about fifty trips to get more stuff that I'd forgotten? Oh yeah...
BUT... I embraced some time with husband, he watched me create this and was so sweet and full of compliments. So... was it worth it??? TOTALLY... (sorry i flashed back to my valley girl lingo.) So embrace is good... both figuratively and literally...
Here is the book...
