Hello Lovelies! Welcome back and Happy New Year to you, I hope you had a peaceful and fun celebration this year. I am so excited to be back sharing with you and cannot wait to get this year started! This is the year we are going to create, heal, and grow together through Light The Path, and today I am going to share with you a few sneak previews of the January prompts so you can see what is coming! Thank you to everyone who has signed up, to everyone who has given me an encouraging word, and to all of you for being here.
First up I want to share with you sneaks of the STUNNING digital scrapbook kit that Elif Sahin of Sahin Designs has lovingly crafted for us. This collection is a special collaboration that joins her creative talents and the specific content of this workshop to bring you a collection unlike any other. Elif is such a treasure to our community and I can’t even express how amazing it is to work with a collection that is so beautifully designed and that ties in so wonderfully with the content of this prompt. All of the kits that come with Light The Path digital suites incorporate the concepts developed in each prompt and provide ample opportunity to reflect, journal, and empower you on your creative journey!
There are so many incredible ways to express ourselves creatively, and Light The Path is an opportunity for you each month to incorporate mixed media, pocket pages, photography, and journaling into a project that has special meaning for you. I love bringing in texture, color and pattern into my layouts, and through the workshop process videos you will see how my album comes together each month. You will be inspired to get into your creative space (physical space and head space!) to use your creativity as the incredible healing resource you already possess!
The January prompt is all about documenting where you are, right at this moment in time. We will do several check-ins like this throughout our year together, as these are a wonderful way to measure where you are today, tomorrow, and in the future. Through these prompts you will have the space to document the growth in your journey of healing. Some days you might document two steps back, and other times you might have a top of the mountain experience. Overall the steps back and forward all count towards growth, and you will be so happy to be able to look back proudly on your personal growth.
Even in the midst of the most difficult work, pretty things can inspire us. Incorporating favorite colors and elements, such as these sequins, brightens the journey just a bit. The photography prompt as well will provide opportunities to view yourself and the world through a different lens. As survivors we do see things a bit differently, and now we have the chance to view that lens as our own asset.
I am a visual story teller. A big component of this workshop is the way we will re-imagine pieces of our recovery using different elements from nature. We are like birds taking flight, on our recovery paths: for a while we were fed some difficult circumstances, we braved a cold and wet nest and then were rudely shoved off the edge with ruffled feathers and vision that wasn’t really clear. We survived a while and now we are assessing the damage, bandaging where needed, and finding new flight.
I am so ready to begin this journey with you. If you’d like to find out more about this new project, and sign up, join us here: Light The Path. See you there!
