A year of LESS

Some friends of mine were discussing their word of the year for 2010 and I thought it sounded like a great idea.  My word for this coming year is LESS.

Less Weight (don't we all say this?)
Less Clutter
Less Mess
Less Aggravation with the Kids and more playing
Less Spending
Less Procrastination

So far I am doing well.  I have had a tummy bug that is helping me with the weight :) My wonderful husband went to Ikea on New Years Eve and bought some new items to help with the clutter and the mess AND has already built/installed them all.  I actually planned out our dinner menu this week to make grocery shopping LESS expensive and have used some of my pantry items so there is LESS.  This first week is a success....so far.  Just to keep me on track for the rest of the year I decided to make a little magnetic calendar with my word of the year on it.  I can keep it on my stamp desk to remind me of my goals. 

I stamped the square image from the Priceless stamp set in Melon Mambo and then inked up just the last for letters of the word Priceless from that same set using Rich Razzelberry.  I think it looks like that was the word all along.  It may not be the most spectacular thing ever, but I am really happy with it.


Stamps: PriceLESS
Paper: Razzelberry Lemonade, White, Rich Razzelberry
Ink:  Rich Razzelberry, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Prima Flowers, Chipboard Coaster, Magnets,


  1. what a great why to keep your word out as a reminder. And so stylish looking too.

  2. way to go! i'm still trying to figure out my word for the year.

    and, as always, i love your work. you are so creative!

  3. Love it...Although I am not sure YES would look as cute. ;)


I would love to hear what you think :)
