Quoted feat. Featured Guest Susan (@LittleThingsBigDays) | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Welcome back, everyone!

As many of you know, I just love the Instagram community.  I have "met" so many wonderful, talented friends as a result of sharing there. This week's Featured Guest, Susan, is no exception.  Her creations never cease to inspire me and I am so excited to have her here this week to deliver us her prompt and inspiration!

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

"I am a collector of quotes. I keep them in notebooks, on scraps of paper, on my phone and on several Pinterest boards. I love that quotes can oftentimes express exactly what I'm feeling but might not be able to convey with words. Do you have a favorite quote? Is there a phrase that gets repeated often at your house? Is there a particular book passage that really speaks to you? Do you often recite lines from a favorite movie or tv show? Whatever the source, I'd like you to document a favorite quote this week."  -Susan

Look Down, Look Up feat. Kellie Winnell | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Hi everyone!

This week our Featured Guest is none other than the fabulous Kellie Winnell of Kellie Stamps! You've probably seen her awesome creations floating around Instagram or her blog, Give a Girl a Blog, each week for our last several prompts.  I'm so excited to have her hosting this week and sharing with us!

Look Down, Look Up  | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

I read a quote once that said something like, "It doesn't matter what you look at, it matters more where you look from. "  I thought that was pretty applicable to Kellie's prompt this week.  It's always good to slow down and take a look around us. Look down - what do you see? Where are your feet taking you? Perhaps you have a view of your children playing on the floor as you stand above them? Look Up! What do you see?  A beautiful sky?  A certain cherished item that sits perched on a shelf in your home?   Change your perspective this week and look up, then look down and take some time to document it.

My Senses feat. Carolina Pretorius  | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

"Our lives seem to be too hectic to stop and feel around us. I would like to propose for this #hashtagthisweek a layout made including something from each of our senses: what we see/look/watch, what we hear/listen to, what we smell, what we are eating/drinking and we are doing/making at the moment in time when we stop and feel. I am more familiar with PL layouts and maybe a bit of journaling with it but it could be just text, just pictures or anything that could express this subject. " - Carolina

Savor feat. Leigh Odynski | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Hi Everyone!

I love it when season's begin to change... Regardless of whether it is a change of the weather season or whether it is just a shift in our daily work or routine habits. There's always something new to embrace and that's the beauty of life... This week, I'm excited to have our Featured Guest Leigh Odynski sharing this special prompt with us.

"Savor: As the season's change, what can you savor at this time in your life?

My idea for this prompt came from thinking about the different seasons in life, and how I can find something small to savor in each one. In past seasons of particularly busy child rearing, it could be just one minute with a cup of hot tea, or an afternoon latte. A small moment of quiet, a hug, or a bedtime story. A time to slow down and savor, even just one tiny, fleeting thought. At the end of the day, can we capture that and hold on to it in times of trial, or hardship? It has certainly helped me in the many different ups and downs of this roller coaster called life. Taking a reflective look at the end of the day, can be therapeutic, and healing. What did you savor today?

1) a taste of food
2) a warm mug of your favorite comforting drink
3) a hand held in your own ( or capture others )
4) a sunset walk
5) a chore completed
6) family members hugging
7) creative time
8) a place in your home where you can rest/ put your feet up
9) a letter, text, or email that brought you a smile
10)your favorite time of day: Savor the moment

I hope these prompt ideas encourage you, right where you are, in whatever season of life you are in, to savor and then appreciate those little snippets!" - Leigh

Handmade feat. Banana Fish Studio | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

So many good things come to mind when I think of the word handmade... Mom's pillows that adorn my couch, the afghans my great grandmother knitted that keep us warm... the crafts I enjoy creating in my evenings after work... What are some things you think of when you consider the word "handmade"?   

Here's our friend France, a.k.a Bananafishstudio with a fun prompt for us!

Handmade feat. Banana Fish Studio | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

"There couldn't be a prompt more fitting for me than "handmade." Making things is what I like to call "the work of my life." I knit, crochet, paint, cook and of course I am a devoted memory keeper.  I love being part of a community that celebrates making things."

BananaFishStudio

About France: My name is France Wisniewski aka Bananafishstudio. I am a graphic designer living in the beautiful PNW with my husband Keith and our pup Ronin. In between work and memory keeping I like to devote a bit of time everyday to being outdoors, knitting, cooking a meal and taking a nap...not necessarily in that order.

Habits | Weekly prompt and link up for memory keepers and creative bloggers

We all have good, and bad, habits. Whether they are ones we want to admit to or not, they are still a part of what makes us who we are. This week, take some time to document some of your habits... They can be personality habits like talking too much or daydreaming... Or they can be daily habits like drinking a cup of coffee each morning or watching a favorite show at night. Think about your different habits and document them. Make list, share several or focus on just one, it's entirely up to you!

Quiet Time | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

Hi Everyone!

WE ARE BACK WITH #HASHTAGTHISWEEK!

After my short summer hiatus, it's good to be back and sharing these prompts again. I'm hoping now I'll have more free time to play along myself.

I have some awesome guests lined up in the upcoming months so I can't wait for you to see what all we have in store.  First up though is yours truly kicking things off with the prompt below.  This prompt got me to thinking about some of my favorite ways to spend my quiet time... After all, quiet time is rare and precious!  I love to curl up with a good book, or maybe even catch up on my Instagram feed.  Every so often I change it up and spend time alone in prayer or binging on a favorite television show.  Either way, let's document a little bit of how we spend our quiet time...

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

Hi friends! For those of you in the western hemisphere, summer is finally upon us on all. The days are longer and there is more time to be spent with family and friends.  I am looking forward to a slower pace over these next few months as my husband and I continue to heal from the loss of our first child and focus on spending time together with our family. I'm working on getting my creative "mojo" back while I continue with my personal project of converting old home video VHS tapes to DVD. In addition, I'll still be creating for Paislee Press and One Little Bird, so I'll still be sharing my layouts here and on Instagram.  

As a result of this shift in focus, I'll be putting #hashtagthisweek on pause for the months of June, July and August

In the meantime, please allow me to encourage you to check out all of the past #hashtagthisweek prompts. There are many you may not have had a chance to participate in so now is a great time to review, catch up, and link up!  Feel free to add your projects anytime and continue to share your photos and stories on social media under #hashtagthisweek.

 

Jump In! | Weekly Prompt and Link Up for Memory Keepers and Creative Bloggers

This week's prompt is completely open to interpretation on your part! A few thoughts I had behind this prompt where 1) it's summer in this hemisphere and most of us are getting the chance to hit the swimming pools and kick off the new season, or 2) no matter where we are in life, there's always an opportunity to jump in and start something new.  Whatever you're jumping into this week, I want to encourage you to document it!
