I know how you feel, I have chosen a word to be my focus for the year but it is certainly not involving a list of resolutions - I'm using it for a guide, nothing more.

Alexa, that photo is fantastic - the colours and the feel are vibrant and, dare I say it, a touch on the adventurous side of life? :-)


Fantastic project Alexa - you have inspired me to give it a go. Doing 1 thing new a week is achievable and fun. I will have to work with what I have for last week but this week I am on the lookout for new experiences!


I love the photo! I shall be hoping that adventure taps me on the shoulder sometime soon, here's hoping! :)


Delighted, Karen! When you post, do go and join the Linky list over here - scroll down her page to find it: http://frickonastick.com/2011/01/new52-week-1/. Looking forward to seeing what you do!

You must have been reading my mind! I've taken up the New52 project too haha. Brilliant to see you're doing it. I've made myself a list of stuff to do this year but rather than blog it every week, I thought I'd do a layout every month showing what I've done. In fact I was wondering yesterday whether my word for the year would be NEW, or EXPLORE or ADVENTURE.

Love this layout, crisp, clean and perfection itself. Glad you found your playful side. Pxx


Love this! great new52!


Delighted to have another familiar face doing this too! The monthly page is a great take on it. Any of those words have an energetic and positive ring to them - looking forward to seeing which you choose.:)

Alexa - love the happiness and excitement I can see on your face and in your words! I think this is a fabulous idea - off to check the link.


This is amazing!!! YAY You!! Here's to a year of challenging ourselves :) I really love your blog and am adding it to my reader :) (I really love your name too ;) Mine's Alexis :)


What an amazing photo!

I'm not much of a one for resolutions either - I just keep on trying, no matter what time of year it is!


Love the LO Alexa and, after mulling it over, I think I'm going to join in too. Thanks for the heads up!


What a great layout and the photo is priceless. It looks like fun.


Love the pic! Good for you for doing something on the adventurous side!


Alexa, first the photo is awesome and secondly the attitude is awesome! We are on the same wave length :) Can't wait to see what you will share Friday, thanks for stopping by.


Another wonderful layout, Alexa. I use my word for the year as a guide, and it's been much more helpful (and successful) than resolutions! I read all about New52, but since FINISH is my word for 2011, I'm reluctant to take much on that's new. I do have a couple of courses I'm seriously thinking about, but not for awhile. Since we've gotten home, I've finished two big projects, so I hope I can keep the momentum going.


This is fabulous - the photo, the layout, the outlook, the whole darn post! xx


I could read your writing all day long, I love the way you turn a phrase. Good for you on the springy walkway! So far I'm really amazed at how these little things can make me feel such a big sense of accomplishment. The project makes me more aware. Welcome to the mix!


Wonderfully positive & joyfully enthusiastic ... love your approach to NEW52!


Oh my my. Love the photo. Enjoy the process. :)
