Hello and happy last day of 2008...today's blog post is a continuation of yesterday's post...
Most of the scrapbooking and paper crafting world knows who Ali Edwards is...shoot..even my valentine knows who Ali Edwards is...duh and most of you who have been reading my blog for the past few years knows that I almost had a heart attack the day I had to pick her up from the airport in Utah...for me, it was the same as if someone had asked me to pick up Oprah....hello...but after only a few moments (well, a few days...) I was not only fortunate to have learned some really great things from her..but she & I became fast, funny and creative, sometimes instant coffee drinking friends....
Now we all of know that today is the last day of 2008. Not only is it time to ring in 2009, but also time to be inspired once again by Ali, to chose a word to focus on for the new year. Most of you know that Ali does a lot of work to support Autism Speaks and most of you know that I doodle...alot. I love to share my art with all of you in my RAK Album here on my blog and those doodles are still there for you, but today starts a little something different...
in honor of Ali's "One Little Word" and in my pursuit to remind you of the things you already know...today I introduce you to
"One Little Word...can make a BIG Difference.
Here are a few of my doodles from last year that I continue to reflect on and inspired me to create this special project:
This year, my word is PURPOSE. I often struggle, just like everyone on what I can do to make a difference. I have been blessed by GOD to be able to create things and with "Purpose" as my goal...to help, to serve, to create and to remind...I have come up with a little project with Ali's blessing to start off 2009.
Starting today, you will be able to purchase a custom framed doodle with "YOUR WORD of the year".
Option One - You will receive an original 4 x 6 handrawn, doodled and framed "One Little Word" with your choice of a black or white frame and complimented with a verse, favorite quote or scripture of your choice.
The price for framed art is $20.00 and $5.00 from each purchase will be donated to Autism Speaks.
Option two - You can order your custom doodle without a frame and your word will be sent to you via email in a PDF file. Your doodle can be used for your own personal blog, site and can be downloaded and saved to your computer to be printed out.
The price for the PDF is $15.00 with $5.00 of every purchase going to Autism Speaks.
These doodles will serve as a reminder of your word for the year, to help benefit the research of Autism...and keep me busy doodling! If you are interested in ordering a personalized "One Word" Doodle, please send me an email with "One Word Doodle" in the subject line and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . An email containing all of the ordering information will be sent to you.
I would LOVE to know what your word of the year is..so please leave me a comment...I will be giving away one framed doodle on my blog and Ali will be giving away one on hers...
I wish you all the happiest of New Years and a blessed 2009.
