Word of the Year & Projects of 2016

At the beginning of 2016, I chose the word "finish" as my word for the year.  I can't tell you how much having that word always in the back of my mind helped me out, and I actually ended the year without any unfinished projects laying around!
"Finish" also helped to stop me from starting multiple projects at one time!  I was able to focus on one project at a time, complete it, and move on to the next.

There were a couple of projects from 2015 that spilled over to 2016, however I'm glad I took my time to finish them up to get them to look really good.

Here's a photo journal of most of my 2016 projects, some of which I haven't ever posted about!

And for now that's a wrap up on my 2016 projects that I was able to finish, because I kept my word for the year in the back of my mind all the time!

Now to choose a new word for 2017, and put together some new, fresh goals to work towards!  Have you chosen a word for the new year?  Do you make new year's resolutions or goals?
Let me know what your plans are for 2017 and beyond, and I'll be sharing some of mine over on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
