Sundays with Sandee - art journaling your word of the year

Everyone is picking their word for the let's journal it!

Pick one word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long. Some word ideas:
Forgiveness, Blossom, Focus, content, Still, Health, Believe, Reborn, Resolve, Unselfish, Accept, mortal, Breath, Dependence, Energy, Appreciate, Coffee, Complete, Constant, Trust, Innovate, Persevere, care, determination, Write, Broken, kind, journey, connect, responsibility, Renewal, Renovate, Wait, Respond, Bold, Change, deliberate, inspire, adapt, Let Go, Selflessness, perseverance, Weave, Rock, Adventure, present, plan, Selfless, Engage, renew, refresh, Self-Respect, Discover, Patience, Survival, Breathe, Purposeful, Mission, submit, Gratitude, epiphany, Ubuntu, motion, love, Solve, Passion, Moments, Move, Positive, listen, Steadfast, Happy, intentional, Flourishing, Improvement, Intersection, Enough, Risk, Words, Presence, Well-Being, Invest, less, Happiness, Discipline, assiduity, welcome, Be, Survive, new, forgive, Encourage, Create, strength, Restore, joy, integrity

My word for the year is: Alacrity

I wanted to take the one word idea a step further by asking yourself: Why did I pick this word?

What will this word change for me if I follow it every day?

What are some synonyms of this word so that I can best understand it?

My friend Tamiko asked me to incorporate a mandala into my journal page. I am not sure this is what she had in mind, but I became fascinated with all the mandalas in nature.
This Pinterest page is full of nature's spiral mandala's....check it out and be amazed.
( Look for something with a circular center with a pattern radiating outwards and you have found yourself a natural mandala. )

You can visit the Frosted Design Blog to see the video I have up, and I sure hope you enjoy making your Word of the Year Journaling page, and then share it with us over on the Frosted Designs Face Book page.

Random thoughts:
I cannot pronounce synonym without it sound like cinnamon.
My chair needs to be oiled.
Who the heck was the gray haired lady that snuck into my video?
Hitting the camera with your elbow is NOT a good thing to do, for you or for the video.
