2013 Word of the year: DO

Pin It

I've had a favorite saying for several years. I didn't realize it at the time but it's true.  If you know me, you've probably heard it. It's a quote from know...from Star Wars?!
Yep, I'm a geek.

The quote's not well known, at least not among "normal people" but it's one that I live by every day.

Some days with more success than others.

My word for 2013 is DO.  Not "think about".. not "plan for"...not "stress over"...

(Although, those are things that will likely happen as well.)

In 2013, I'm going to do more and worry least that's my intent...

A year from now, we'll all see how successful I am.

You the chalkboard sign that hangs in my studio says:

Thanks to each of you for making my 2012 an incredible year!

I have some new adventures on the horizon for 2013 that I'll be sharing soon so, stay tuned here on the Blog...or on the FB Fan page and

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

How about YOU...what's YOUR word for 2013?



  1. I love that! What an inspiration, I need to do the same.


  2. I'm a geek too - I am always quoting Yoda to my kids (to the extreme vexation of the hubs, who has absolutely no idea what I'm talking about!)

  3. I love being not normal with you SS, this is one of my long time favs too. And really? Whats to worry about? You're insanely talented, creative, and awesome - just Be Still & Know. (another one). xo

    1. Happy New Year, SS. I'm delighted to be in such WONDERFUL company! Here's to a wonderful 2013! xo

  4. I love your word. I am a middle school teacher and so many of my students say, "I'm going to do better", "I'm going to become a doctor- but I don't do homework" and many more procrastination statements. I tell them, "don't talk about it, DO IT!"

    I hope you "DO" what you want in the new year.

    1. EXACTLY! I'm raising two sons using these words...and another set that I particularly like: If you want something badly enough, you WILL find a way...if not, you will find an excuse. Gotta love ACTION...and responsibility for it! Happy New Year!

  5. My word is perseverance. I just need to keep on keeping on! Happy New Year to you. Wishing you only good things in 2013!

    1. Thanks Ann! You're already living your "word"...I've been watching...and working toward a fraction of the success that you've made for yourself. I wish you many dreams come true in 2013! xo

  6. Did you chalk that? It is amazing! And now I need one of those on the wall, somewhere other than over my mantel...a permanent chalkboard.

    1. Hi Trina, I's part of the 12 foot chalk board that I made for my studio.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts! I read every single comment and try to respond to each and every one of them!
