The shift into 2021 is like no other year end and year beginning. The situations that defined 2020 have changed us, given us hope, challenged each of us, changed and shaped us into stronger individuals.
Each year, I choose one word which I carry with me throughout the year. When I choose the word, I’m not so sure at the time what the word will bring but I have hopes and I always think I have a vague understanding of what could manifest. This word is my first true intentional act of the year.
As a way to keep this word top of mind, I create a small talisman that will be displayed in my home throughout the year. This talisman isn’t always useful - sometimes it’s just a piece of art that I gaze upon every so often.
Years back, I started a Word Of The Year Craft Party (WOTY Craft Party) - where several of us gathered at my house to create our talisman’s and witness each other as we talk about how our previous word defined the year - and - how our new word will help us manifest more desires deep within ourselves. The rules are simple - the craft must be a beginner craft so that anyone can participate, we must make space for each other to share our words and make a pact to share at the end of the 2021 with each other again.
This year, I am inviting all of you to participate in the WOTY Craft Party - now, it’s virtual!
I’m teaming up with my Dad, Jim of Lickinflames, to help us create the base for our craft. These small dishes can be used for jewelry, spare change or even be a small piece of art for your wall if you want to add a hook to the back.
What’s special about these dishes - Fire is used to alchemize each of them. Ceramics is special in that way - the fire changes them and through that transformation there is a sort of magic that arises. When you choose yours, find the dish that calls to you. Can you already see a word emerging from behind the glaze?
In your WOTY Craft Kit you will receive:
• Your choice of dish (the dishes are all approximately 4x4 inches)
• 3 permanent metallic markers to decorate and adorn your dish with your word and or shapes that have meaning to you.
• a Zoom link for the Word of the Year Craft Party on January 10th.
This dish will represent your hopes and desires for the year ahead.
For now, as you await your kit - start to notice words that have come up for you through this year or even a word that is currently resonating with you - something to which you feel called.
