Trust and Balance

I've been thinking about my word for 2011 but instead of one, I had two words come to me.

trust: a:assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something; b : one in which confidence is placed

balance: mental and emotional steadiness

I have been trying to write this post for 2 days now.  What do I want to say about these two words?  Why are these the words I have chosen for 2011?  I've decided that I am obviously having a little struggle with putting the reasons for choosing these words into a post.  So I am going to sit with it for a little longer and hopefully I'll be better able to share.

In the meantime, if you haven't checked out my BFF's website lately, she is doing a giveaway each day in January, check it out!  She also has a new column over at wishstudio.  Such a busy bee!

I just read this post by Marianne and I love it!  Just perfect.

Check out the lovely Pixie's latest creations.  I bought one and can't wait to add more totems to it!  And I received one of her paintings for Christmas and just love it!

And last but not least, if you haven't been (or even if you have) to Squam Art Workshops, check it out.  Lots of great teachers, fun classes and amazing souls.  If you can go, do it!

It looks like everyone is jumping right in to 2011...lots of great stuff!
