It's a brand new week in a brand new month... I'm excited to launch this month's first prompt with a little bit deeper theme than we're used to. This week is brought to us by Kristine of the Teal Lime Press. I ran across Kristine on Instagram after she found me via this blog. I've enjoyed following her and love her designs!
Here is her message for this week's prompt:
"Like so many others who have written prompts for #hashtagthisweek, I didn't know that I would be entering the exciting challenge to document myself more by doing #myselfiescrapbook. I joined many other contributors and crafters to engage other women, and some men, into documenting their lives more by stepping out from behind the camera and starting to document themselves in ways they maybe haven't before. I'm sure Jennifer from @sunlightandair didn't realize that it was going to be so huge for some of these project lifers. Some are battling insecurities that some of us can not comprehend, like sickness, self acceptance, and more. Some are just going for it! Taking morning photos with no makeup, pj's and all! I think this is really brave for some women.
So, I wanted to highlight what goals you are taking to be brave this week, and what drives you to complete them.
For myself I'm taking the long journey again of joining the rest of the FITBIT community. I've gained about 30lbs since I got married and I'm ready for it to disappear once again! I have taken a long journey with my weight issues, and every time I do, I can feel the faith growing in myself once more.
So, my challenge is, what drives you? What is your challenge? This could be a photo of a long journey with your weight, starting a new routine, a new job, even spring cleaning! I love the idea of even tackling a huge pile of books, (in my nook) that I buy and don't read, and finally reading them! whatever your challenge is lets see it!
I want this to tell a new, or current story of how brave you are, what drives you, challenges you are facing, even if they are funny, your "bravest" moment this week, maybe even future aspirations.
I'm offering a small journal card set for all of you. You can even write out a bucket list. Lets get motivated this season! Lets see what challenging you this week! Lets be brave.
I think its important to document these moments because when we look back, WE GET TO SEE CHANGE in ourselves. When we look back everything is different, lets document it."
Kristine lovingly designed these amazing cards for you to use in your project this week! They're so beautiful!
Find Kristine online or on social media and give her a big, ole THANK YOU!
