I had already picked out a word of the year for myself before enrollingbut I was curious about your various techniques. I had never hear of the left hand/right hand technique! I will keep that one in mind for next year. I don't have any jewelry to work with at the moment, but what I did do was make the first entry into my art notebook. My word of the year is FUN because I am just a little too duty-bound and responsibility-driven and I want to add a little more fun into my everyday life. Thanks for the tips, Ria. Enjoyed it!
