My One Little Word and a Giveaway!

If you have been a follower of this blog then one thing you know about me is that I like old dictionaries and books. I love to collage with their pages and incorporate them into my art journaling. I even opened an Etsy shop as a result of this hobby (obsession, addiction). You also know from my previous post that I am following along with Ali Edward's One Little Word challenge group again this year. As I was working on my page defining my word and writing about why I chose it, I naturally incorporated a bit of a page from an old dictionary onto my page.

As I was working on this page I was also working on putting together more of the vintage page packs that I offer in my shop..I very rarely work on one thing at a time! That was when I came up with the idea that there may be others who are participating in any of the numerous "word of the year" groups out there who may also want to incorporate dictionary definitions into their pages and journals. And that they may not collect dictionaries ...ok, have an addiction to dictionaries like I do So, I thought, why not make vintage paper packs for specific words to be used by those who are doing One Little Word, Project Life, My One Word, etc. So that is just what I did yesterday during the snowstorm of the season here in Ohio

I am now offering these Word Themed Page Packs with pages from dictionaries, thesaurus', poetry books, quote books, old books and magazines and anywhere else I can find text or images that express a particular word. I will put them together based on YOUR OLW. I already have complete Word Theme Paper Packs for the following words: free, beauty, hope, faith, light, shine, love, and have begun pulling pages with many, many other words.

To kick off this new idea of mine I am giving away a Word Themed Paper Pack on Friday, January 10. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me what your word for the year is and I will randomly draw a name from those comments on Friday. Please leave a comment by midnight on Thursday, January 9.

To see previews of the Word Themed Paper packs visit my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/FoundonBrighton?ref=si_shop or click the link in the column on the right.
