It’s a new twist on an old idea: tell the story of you, from A to Z, in an encyclopedic format, and do it using the Project Life system.
We’re talking cards, pockets, stories and photos. And we’re talking about my favorite subject: you.
That’s right ladies (and, if I may be so bold, gentleman who scrapbook too), it’s all about telling your story. I know, I know… you might be thinking, “Okay, Cathy… I did a page about me once. I’m good.” Or maybe, “I LOVE this idea. Already did it once before. So, yeah… pass.” But I’m here to tell you, after having just completed this album (my 5th volume since 2005), I feel like this is one of the most important albums I make. I am never going to not preach the value and importance of the memory keeper who documents her own story.
No one knows you like you. Period. Okay, maybe your therapist does. But I’m guessing she or he ain’t gonna make a scrapbook about you. You feel me? So that’s where you come in.
In this four-week class, we’re going to brainstorm, we’re going to write and we’re going to take or gather photos. And when we’re done, we, or rather you, are going to have a truly authentic slice of your life. And even if you’ve done this before, I can tell you this: a lot can change in a few years. True, there were many constants, things that will always have a place in any CZ A to Z album, but things in my life are changing. Time brings things that are new. Some are joy filled. Some more bittersweet. But when I finished this album in preparation for creating this workshop, I just sighed and felt so grateful for the chance to share this story.My story.
You can get all of the class details here, but if you have time, this short video gives you an overview:
I would love to have you join me in October for Me: The Abridged Version for Project Life. If you have any questions or comments, let me know. I’m happy to answer. A pre-class is available immediately upon sign-up including a video message from me plus access to a private Facebook group, so we can start talking about the workshop before the actual start date.
