Choose a word, put it on a pin, wear it and you have made a public statement. During the first week of the daily challenge called Brooch a Day 2013, I enjoyed thinking about the power of pins.
Pins are very public. The wearer doesn't even see them. They are like a billboard. The question becomes, what do you have to say?
Sometimes, we let others say something about us, by putting a pin on us.
Why do we let others put a pin on us? It says we are in the club, we paid, we are with the band, we are of the same tribe.
So, what word would you wear? Let me know. I'll be offering custom word pins soon.
