Starting today until January 20th, you can sign up if you want to join me in this challenge. The Reveal and Blog Hop will be on February 2nd, 2013. You have almost one month to get ready. I will post all the participants and the links provided to me so that you can hop around from blog to blog and see everyone’s creation on the 2nd of February.
Challenge Step One:
Choose an inspirational word or phrase in an area of your life where you want to make positive change. Make sure your words truly represent something you want to work on. Don’t choose a word because it looks good, is popular right now or someone else thinks you should choose it.
These are the six categories of wellness that people generally want to make changes in: Physical, Emotional, Occupational, Spiritual, Intellectual and Social. Your words can represent any of these areas.
I have been compiling a categorized list of words and phrases in these different areas. It’s not at all comprehensive, but I will email it to everyone who participates. You can make up your own words or please feel free to use something from the list if it resonates with you.
Challenge Step Two:
You can make earrings, a necklace or a bracelet. Incorporate your words into your design. It does not have to be complicated. Perhaps simple is better. That way you may want to wear your jewelry more often so you can be reminded of your words and focus on the healthy change part of this challenge. If you want to go all out on your design, then by all means, please do!
You don’t have to make the word component of your design. You can buy a word bead, pendant or letter charms from an artist on Etsy. Making your words will of course give you more freedom to choose a word that’s specific to you. You can use resin to make a pendant, stamp letters in clay, metal or leather. Form a word from wire. Maybe you know how to etch metal. There are endless options. Your word can be central to the design or a more subtle part of the design. Totally up to you!
On the morning of February 2nd, you will need to post pictures of your creation on your website. You can write a little about the motivation for choosing your words and how you are doing with your change if you would like to. I don’t want to pressure you to expose something you don’t want to share. This is meant to be fun, supportive and motivational. The picture of the jewelry can speak for itself in you want it to!
