FOCUS - 2016 word of my year + heidi swapp Marquee Love


My 2016 Word of the Year.

My theme for 366 days.

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Maggie Massey. I receive financial compensation and material product from American Crafts to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own. 

There are a number of areas that deserve my focus this year: God, my family, my work...

...and so I've decided to make my word front and center...

I used the brand new Heidi Swapp Marquee Love collection tapes, paper pad & shapes (I chose the "+") - all available now at Michaels Stores...

I'm using the "+" as a substitute for the "o" in my a reminder to keep my faith front and center in my everyday...

I kept the letter decoration fairly simple...I took 5 different patterns from the paper pad and used them as the backgrounds for each of my letters...and I decorated the outside of only the "+" - keeping the rest white. I just love how they all look together. 

My kids think the "+" looks weird...but I really love it...

I've kept this lit all day and into the evening since I finished it...I think it's the perfect addition to my work space...the perfect reminder to focus...

SUPPLIES: Heidi Swapp Marquee Love - Letters & "+" sign, Marquee Love paper pad, Marquee Love 2" floral tape: all available at Michaels Stores.
