I have chosen my Word of the Year for 2012.
The word is LIVE.
I love that it can be used both as LIVE, as in “I will LIVE for today”,
as LIVE, “LIVE from Manchester, It’s Kim, the Rock Fairy/Queen of Arts !”
I have to admit that choosing a word was not a sweet, meditative contemplation thing for me this year.
In fact, it was kind of more in response to how intimidated I was feeling by all the incredibly deep thought and soul searching some of my friends in Blogland were doing to begin their 2012 off right and to choose their important Word of the Year.
I think I am in a place where I want to spend a lot less time thinking and planning how I am going to Live this one precious life, and instead get on with the actually Living I want to do.
So the word LIVE feels like a really good fit.
While my word was percolating, I also thought about how I would want to have my word on a Rock My World rock with “Live” on it for me, and how I have painted rocks for friends in the past with their own Word of the Year on them as a keepsake gift.
And then, I came up with this sweet little box idea :
This small white ceramic box comes from a local craft store.
I added the painted paper flower and the 2012 under a coat of Glossy Accents to create a cute dimensional decoration on the lid
and here we have a lovely place to keep your 2012 Word of the Year Rock !
I also made a second design with a sun.
I have made these sweet things available in the Etsy shop and I would love to send you
your very own customized
2012 Word of the Year Rock Rock in a Box keepsake.
For the month of January, I will be including some extra Rock My World rocks in every package I send out, so you will have your own Word rock in its pretty box and also a few other rock love messages to share.
Also, if the box isn’t your thing, but you would like to have a Rock My World Rock with your Word of the Year on it, the bag of 13 rocks are also available in the shop and I will customize them as you want me to.
Along with enjoying the rocks, you can be glad to know that part of the profits I make from selling the Rock My World Rocks always goes to being able to donate, ship and offer the rocks for free to charitable causes to use for their fund raising efforts.
Here’s hoping that 2012 is full of lots of juicy LIVING for all of us !
Big Love, Beautiful Ones !
