Writing on the wall {an invitation and a giveaway}

My new craft room.
{a blank slate!!!}
I know, it's weak as far as photos go, but trust me,
this is going to be an amazing space!
Here's where you come in...

The invitation:
As soon as we get the keys to our new home, I plan to go in with a pencil and write some stuff on the walls. Oh sure, Doug will paint over those words, but I'll always know they are there and that alone will be special to me.

I'd love to have each of you here to write one word on my craft room wall - any word you choose. And since we all know that can't really happen within the next week, I'm asking you to leave a comment with the one word you would write if you were here with me, side-by-side with pencil in hand. Then, next week when we get our keys, I'll go in and write all of those words on the walls, with your name next to the word you have given me. I can't think of a better way to decorate this new craft space of mine, than to be surrounded {albeit under paint} with the words of my friends.

The giveaway:
After we're moved in and most of the boxes are unpacked, I will randomly draw a name from those of you who have left words for my craft room walls. The winner will receive a lovely prize package of stuff from my craft room that I am ready to pass along. {Non-crafters will be appropriately awarded with something equally as sweet.}

So what do you think?
What one word would you write if you were here with me?

PS: This contest will be open until Doug paints this room. I'll edit this post when that happens and let you know that it's closed.

Edit on 8/16/11 - This contest is now closed. Thank so much for participating! I'll announce the winner soon...

Give me the first word that came to mind - even if you notice that someone else has already used it.

Thanks, everyone! ♥

I dont know why this word came to mind, but when reading your blog, the word was "infectious"!! In a good way of course....your creativity is infectious!

YOU are a thinker and because of that I give you the word PEACE. Maybe you can get that word rollin' in every nook and cranny of this big world of ours. It's my constant prayer. Congrats and happy life in your new digs.

What a fabulous idea, Deb! I'm with Carrie - the first word I thought of was 'Love'. May your house always be filled with love, may you always be surrounded by those you love and who love you, and may you always love what you do xx

Ok, I am trying for the seventh time to leave a comment, for some reason, I am not able to sign in as normal, yikes! Anyway, my word is "serendipity". It is my favorite word. I am excited to know more about your move and your new craft room! It looks lovely and sunny! And since I have to be "anonymous", this is Barbara R.

HAPPY! But you have to write it all caps and really big! (it's okay - Doug is going to paint over it). And my wish for you is that you will spend many happy hours creating in your new room and thoroughly enjoy being there!
