January 1

For my first day I decided I wanted to actually play with my word for this year.  Using soft lead pencil I sketched this out.  I then went back and darkened the lines and shaded and embellished each letter.  My goal with this piece is to trace it out and transfer the design onto canvas so I can embroider it.  I've never designed my own embroidery patterns before, so it should be interesting.

What struck me most was how calming this was.  I was completely focused and that doesn't happen with my brain.  I was completely engrossed in the process and it felt amazing.  I'm feeling a little less apprehensive about the challenge at this point.  I'm actually kind of excited to see what comes out next.
