What a great end to 2013!  I swear I do not know where the time goes and I apologize for the delay in getting the January Creative Dare posted!  The beginning of January has already been a whirlwind and I feel refreshed and happy.  As I shared on our last Mixed Media Monday my word for 2014 is Believe…


I have traveled some bumpy roads, walked some miles and smiled, laughed and cried.  I truly do Believe in my dreams, everything good is possible, I believe in those around me, Love and most of all in myself.  There are some new and amazing things coming in 2014 and I am ready.  I kind feel like I have been preparing all 43 years of my life.  So with that said………

I DARE you to use your Word of 2014 Creatively.  Put it to paper, canvas, card, or whatever medium you prefer!  

Here is my piece:
