January One Little Word | The Nerd Nest 1

Today I’m sharing my take on the January prompt for Ali Edwards’s One Little Word! You can read about why I chose my word for this year, Elastic, here.

My office is currently not functional as we work on some home repair projects, so I went for a super simple layout–just cards from the digital One Little Word kit with a single photo. I used an 8.5 x 11-inch pocket page for the cards and a 6×8 protector for the larger sheets.

I’m not going to type out everything I wrote because it’s mostly repeated from the post where I shared my word. I’m glad to have this record in the books: I made it all about the words, because this is something I’ll refer back to throughout the year.

Instead of having a separate album for One Little Word, I include it in my regular chronological albums. This works out really well for me.

For this one, I’ll probably put another One Little Word-related page on the back of the pocket page. I like Ali’s idea of choosing one thing to do each month relating to your word, and for January that was starting a stretch and strength class. That will be the perfect place to document that!

(I just realized I never finished the last sentence on this one. I probably got distracted, because I was working on this while helping Ava with an art project. It should read “Seeing the kids grow and change.”)

I’ll be sharing some of my takes throughout the year, but I expect some of them will be too personal.

Have you chosen a word for the year? How are you documenting?
