Refresh | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

One of my favorite parts of springtime is how everything becomes new again. New blossoms, fresh air, warm breezes... It all revitalizes the soul and brings a happy comfort with it.

Spring has a way of making me feel light - encouraging me to think about those times I can unwind, recharge, and soak up the moment. This week, let's documenting the refreshing things that happen in life. It could be something simple such as a cool drink in the sunshine or something as deep as a moment that made your spirit feel full.

On The Move | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Hi All!

I'm excited to announce our guest host Kimberly Oedekoven today! Kim is one of my Instagram pals and I just love her creativity. We have worked on several projects together in the past and she never ceases to amaze me! Plus, today she's sharing some of her own project inspiration with us!

"My idea with this prompt is physically moving. Whether that means moving from an apartment to your very first house, moving on a bicycle, walking, hiking, taking the bus ride to work each day, taking the subway to the museum or on the monorail to Disney World for the first time! On the move could mean so many different things to so many different people." - Kim

What Stuff? | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Happy Sunday friends!

This week, we have another featured guest - Lisa Borbely.  Lisa and I have gotten to be Instagram friends and I really enjoy her inspiration and friendship. Lisa has a fun, unique (and somewhat personal) challenge for us this week. Here are her thoughts:

"Piles of stuff can be a fun way to document our everyday life. Even if you are super organized I think we all have some sort of pile in our home. I know I have! I always have a pile of clothes on a chair next to my bed and a stack of books waiting to be read on my bedside table. You can use this prompt to show evidence of the people living in your house; the pile of toys on the floor, the never ending laundry pile and your teenager's pile of homework. In a few years I bet your piles will look very different."

Guilty Pleasures | A Weekly Prompt for Memory Keepers & Link Up featuring Kellie of Give a Girl a Blog!

Hi friends!  I am REALLY excited about this week's prompt for two reasons. First, it is my birthday week and this prompt is giving me the authority to indulge myself! Secondly, because our host this week is none other than KELLIE FROM GIVE A GIRL A BLOG and Kellie Stamps!

I began following Kellie online very early in my creative career. I love reading her blog and seeing her never ending inspiration! I was even fortunate enough to be a part of her creative team for awhile!  Without further ado, here's Kellie's prompt ---

Guilty Pleasures - a November prompt for memory keepers via Turquoise Avenue, featuring Kellie from Give a Girl a Blog.

This week's prompt is all about those little (or big) indulgences we offer ourselves from time to time. If you're like Kellie and I, the majority of them include food!  I totally adore how Kellie created this simple page from the Project Life app to document her own personal preferences. 

Guilty pleasures of mine are sweets, mainly donuts, way to many coffee’s, gaming and taking feet shots!
— Kellie

The Price We Pay | Weekly Prompt for Memory Keepers and a Link Up!

Hey guys, it's Mandy here offering up this week's prompt.

image.jpg

My vision for this prompt started one evening as I was sitting at the desk, paying our monthly bills.  I chuckled to myself as I thought about how the cable bill had gone up a little each year since we moved into the house.  I wondered what it would cost 20 years from now.

And right then and there, the idea was born. A perfect prompt and a great memory keeping idea.  This week, I encourage you to document the monthly bills you pay, the weekly groceries you buy, the price of gas or a cup of coffee.  Just think how fun it will be to look back in ten or fifteen years and see the changes!

When I mentioned this idea to my mom, she said she had scrapbook pages showing their first house, the interest rate, and their payment back in 1981.  Then she told me she had a page showing the breakdown of some of the costs for their new home. She texted me photos of her pages and I was elated! I'm so happy she thought to document that for my sister and I.  Here's her inspiration!

Senses | Weekly Photo and Journal Prompt/Challenge for Memory Keepers

Hello!  You're in for a treat today!  Our guest host is participant Rachel from My Digital Evolution Crafting.  Rachel creates stunning digital layouts and is a huge inspiration to me! I think you're really going to enjoy her challenge this week.

Hi Everyone, this is Rachel and I am so thrilled to be hosting this week’s theme “Senses”.

All around you, right now, where you sit, is evidence. Proof of you and your life, evidence that you live, and think, and guess what? It’s beautiful. Even if it’s laundry or dishes or your job, or your kid, or your pet, it’s YOURS, and it’s wonderful. The challenge this week is to document all of your life around you focusing on your senses?  Are you ready?  Let’s go!


Take 5 pictures that illustrate the following senses: 
i. I love the smell of… 
ii. I love the sound of… 
iii. I love the taste of… 
iv. I love the sight of… 
v. I love the feel of…

Write a label for each of these senses on your page! Have fun with this project.  If you can’t find photos of you or your family that illustrate your senses, feel free to find royalty free images on the web.  Just remember if you find a photo that has a copyright always credit the source.  Can’t wait to see what you create!
