Be JoyfulFor years I have chosen a word or phrase to guide me though the next year.  It isn’t a resolution so much as it is a nudge in a direction.  Previously, I have chosen ideas like maintain and train.

Last year, I ended up doing the #100HappyDays project.  I started a related Facebook group that morphed in more.  And then petered out.  I miss looking for something that makes me happy each day, I miss posting about it, and I miss the support from that group.  One thing I did retain was a modified perspective, I am looking for small things that make me happy…I just don’t share them.

2014, was…tough.  Many horrible things happened.  I am just crawling out of the funk that was 2014 (which was worse than 2013…which I didn’t think was possible!).  Crafting was one of the steady things that gave me…JOY.

So, when I was considering what I wanted to focus on for 2015…being happy and having joy in my life seemed a refreshing change.  Then I remembered that I received a stamp from Unity…”Be Joyful.”  A plan was starting to come together!  As I started working on Design Team things for 2015…I realized that incorporating “Be Joyful” into my crafting would be fun…why not do a year-long series?  So, I start this series today!

Please join me…either by commenting on my projects here or joining the Facebook group.  Let’s #bejoyful together!  The idea is to find joy and share it more days than not…a picture, a quote, a posting, a status, a video…a whatever, more days than not.

On a side/related tangent…I also put in to do one week of Growing with Unity (Unity Stamps).  For each week in the year they pick someone that will post a Unity project each day.  On Wednesday of that week they are featured on the Unity blog.  I was given the week of August 10th, 2015!  Thankfully, I have lots of time to plan.
