Me: The Abridged Version for Project Life™ begins on Thursday. What started last April as a, “I should take this approach to a pocket page format” is just a few days away from becoming a reality.
There are a few things I’ve learned about class development and the most important one of all is that I have to love the subject matter. I have to feel passionate about the project or it simply isn’t going to happen.
Trust me. I’ve tried to work on class ideas suggested by someone else and I can never seem to make them move beyond the brainstorming phase. A good class has to come from the heart. Me: The Abridged Version? Yep. It’s coming from me to you, straight from my heart.
Women need to tell their stories. Women need to show up in their scrapbooks. No, I won’t accept that you don’t have interesting things to write about. No, I won’t accept that you’re uncomfortable in photographs. (Okay, I understand it but I want you to get over it.)
What I will accept is that you are gloriously alive and even if you have an identical twin, there is only one you. The value of our lives is incalculable. Ergo, let’s tell these stories that make up who we are, what we do, what we love, what we know. You feel me?
(And honestly, you don’t have to do a class like this to take that message to heart, right? Just get yourself into your albums. That’s my bottom line point!)
This class is flexible and fun. You can do it traditionally or digitally. You can print all your cards at home, or you can purchase a set of pre-printed cards to get you started. We begin class in Week One with the brainstorm portion where we’re going to dig in and start coming up with words or phrases that encapsulate our lives and how we live them.
I won’t lie: it’s a really good class. I care very deeply about an excellent student experience and it’s my goal that you emerge with a meaningful, authentic album that you love.
And yes, you can do it about someone your love or your family at large as I do provide all the cards for those albums as well. But my heart is on you doing an album about you.
Registration closes on October 15. I hope to see you in class!
