Remember that one little word challenge I shared with you at the beginning of the year? My word I chose to guide me for the year was create.
When choosing my word, I was thinking about what I hoped to accomplish for the year. Blogging has lost a little bit of its luster after doing it for so long. It started off as a hobby and now has morphed into a job for me and with that, some of my creativity has waned. Having to produce content on a regular basis with deadlines and pitches for sponsored posts has made what was once so fun for me a little bit stressful and tedious.
I wanted to get back to the reasons for starting this blog – to have a creative outlet to share what I do to inspire others to also enjoy the process of creating something with your own two hands.

My letters spell out the word, create. I headed over to Michael’s to get some inspiration on how to decorate my letters and was pleased to find these awesome glitter tapes that were the perfect size for decorating the letters. There are many different types of tapes that are just the right width to cover both the outside and inside of the letters.
I choose to simply wrap my letters in glitter tape. My craft room is decorated with turqouise and light green colors. So, for my letters I alternated the turquoise and the green glitter tape on each letter. It took me a little less than 1 1/2 rolls of tape for each set of three letters. You will want to go slow since this tape is very sticky and once it is down, it is hard to remove. Align the edges as you go.
Once you have them all decorated, it is so easy to add the lights. You simply place the bulbs in each hole.
Then add the battery powered light strand to each one, following the guide that comes with the letters.
Add batteries and switch them on.
I hung them up above my craft room window. I was so excited that they fit perfectly in the space! They are a great reminder for me to focus on my one word goal for the year.
