67 words

Java art

I'm heading off to work in my friend's coffee shop in a couple of weeks and am so excited!  

Of all the jobs I've EVER had over the years, my favorite one is working at the Java Stop!  

Pouring coffee, grinding espresso beans(oh that heavenly smell), making custom lattes, visiting with customers, connecting with our community and working with a great team, these are just a few reasons why I am so happy to be working at Agawam's Java Stop.

67 words is a way to keep myself motivated to make art every week.  I've selected these words randomly from my dictionary.  I'll share them here with you now and if you want to play along I'd be happy to see what you create too.  

My thought behind this is to make something, ANYTHING each week. The word can be a springboard for creativity.

This is a challenge to help me continue my creative journey and balance my attention between work, home, family, fitness and creativity.

Some of the things I CAN create are ATCs, art journaling pages, drawings, photographs and 3D projects.

You may be asking, why 67 words?  Well, I like the number and it helps me establish the habit right now and carries the challenge into 2015.  What will you create?  

Any questions?!
