WEverb11 and Sketch-a-day:1

I loved my Photo-a-day project in October, so for December, I planned to do a Sketch-a-day.  Then WEverb11 came along, and I decided to combine them.

Day 1 Prompt:

Choose one word.
Encapsulate the year 2011 in one word. Explain why. Imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you?

Thread, pastel, pen, wire, gold leaf, pencil, acrylic, charcoal pencil

For 2011, I chose 'Discover'.  Since this summer, I've been unemployed and I've been using the extra time to try and discover what it is that I love to do.  I like doing and making lots of things, but I am still trying to find that one thing that I love.  The one thing that I can spend so much time with that I become amazing at it.  If anyone can tell me how to make a career out of being pretty good at a lot of things, please share.

For 2012, I hope that 'Doubtless' will be an appropriate term.  I just want to be back to the point where I am absolutely sure that I'm on the right path.  I lived that life until 2009 and it was pretty sweet.

I love this idea, I have been making weekly calendars by hand and the process of putting pen and ink to paper has been so rewarding for me.

Thanks! I couldn't agree more. Something about getting off of a computer for a minute.
