Challenge #8: Let’s Talk About Passion

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

What’s up peeps! We’re having so much fun offering cool challenges to you each week. So, let’s continue. This week’s challenge is: Passion!

Ah yes. The spice of my life. What is YOUR passion? I have a couple including my hubby & singing. I’m sure I have more but passion brought hubby and I together and a sistah-gurl loves to sing!I couldn’t live without it. It makes me happy and gets my blood tingling. Both are my passion!

So let’s do this. Journaling about your passion this week. It doesn’t matter what your passion is, just journal about it. And, feel free to spice it up. Remember, passion deserves a presence!

We enjoyed the challenge. Can’t wait to see what you do below! And here are our pages:

Challenge #7 : Get Into Shape!

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

Before I post this week’s challenge, I want to apologize for getting this up late. My town was hit with quite a snowstorm on Thursday and I just got power back after 5 days. So thank’s for being patient with us. Now for the challenge for the week:

This week it’s time to get your words into shape! Literally. You can do a
page about whatever topic you choose, but it has to have journaling and the
journaling has to be in a shape. It can be a circle, square, heart,
star……you get the idea. It can be typed or handwritten. It just has to
form a visible shape.

Now Get Scrapping!!!

Challenge #5: Let’s talk about old pictures

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

This weeks challenge was a suggestion from my fabulous friend Wendy. (Hi, Wendy!!!!) Here’s what she proposed…

Go find an old picture. It can be one year old, 5 years old, 10, 15, or 20+ years old. What we’re looking for here is something that makes you think of a time in your life that is different than it is now. Now, journal about how that ‘time gone by’ makes you feel. Journal about what is happening in the picture, or journal about how the picture affects you today. Journal like the picture is the present or journal like you are looking back. (You know I like to give you lots of options, right?!?!)

So that’s it! Easy-peasy! So jump right in. If this is your first visit to our little home here on the web…no worries! Jump in here and go back and look at our other challenges later! Consider that your personal invitation to join us.

And now…for our pages:
