Picking Your Word for 2016

Mantra MondayMelissa KayComment

Over the weekend I finally chose my word for 2016. I was so excited that I ran downstairs and told my husband who proceeded to say "You have to have a word? Is it like a hashtag or something"? Talk about anticlimactic. Sorry my dear instagramhusband, but yes this year I feel the need, like so many others of you, to have a "word". 

Have you picked your word yet? Share it with us over on twitter! For me/us, 2016 is the year to Create

Create, our 2016 word.

I personally spent most of 2015 focusing on keeping a business going while having a newborn and a toddler at my feet every second. There was a whole lot of surviving, (both in business and in life) and not very much creating. This year, that will change. Kara and I both have a ton of fun projects planned for this year, and hope that you guys love them as much as we do.

Always be creating


This weekend I also sat down and read Big Magic finally. It was everything I was expecting and so much more and has me so fired up to dig even deeper into my creativity this year. This book is a must read for creatives. Although as stated in the book "If You're Alive, You're A Creative Person". Really, go get it. Now.

 

Also super exciting, Kara's been busy getting her creativity on and is rolling out some new city prints to add to the collection. First up Portland! Get it here. If you haven't checked out her prints in the shop, you need to. They inspire some serious wanderlust.
