A History Project Exercise

Many of you may be wondering what The History Project is all about. Wondering if it’s the right project for you. I thought that today we could go through a little exercise with a sampling of the style of the class.  It goes beyond just the ordinary Where did you work? and What schools did you attend? kinds of questions. The questions asked are designed to get you thinking beyond a typical answer. Beyond the simple answer. So that your readers will know more about who you really are. Let’s use this photo as a starting point to remembering snippets [...]

A Burst of Hipster

You know how you start on a project a few months ago, get maybe two-thirds or even three-quarers done and then it kind of gets pushed aside? Yeah, this is like that. So glad to finally have this fun little grouping of hand-drawn 'bursts' done! It's funny, because according to what I like, my kids would refer to me as hipster. Just because you like the vintage style of lettering, and have liked it for many, many years--before 'hipster' was even a thing--does not label you a hipster. It's all these young pups putting a label on liking vintage things...when some [...]

In case you were wondering…

....yes, I'm still here. Are you guys having  a hard time working or doing the things you should be doing? Boy...all I want to do is play! And play we have.

And maybe a few extra pounds too. ;) So sadly I really do have to start thinking about work...that four letter word that nobody really cares for, right? I'm trying. Motivation. Come on. I did want to let you all know that there are only a couple more days left of this amazing sale! [...]

The History Project. It’s here to stay!

It's that time of year again. The time when we see January off in the short future and we start thinking about setting new goals. Goals to be better about documenting our lives...including documenting our early years! After a few years of offering this class in various configurations, starting January 4 it will be available to anyone at any time as a self-paced class. What does this mean? Over 50 prompts and their corresponding shapes will be available on January 4 when the new class starts. Now you can write about the memories that you are feeling when you want to. [...]
