What does Forward Progress mean?

we have been getting some questions about what we are doing here and we like it! keep 'em coming...we are going to try and tantalize you over the next few weeks until our first prompt comes alive...{insert evil laugh here}!

if you haven't noticed we are super laid back here ;)

so, the photo question...are we gonna have to scrap a lot w/o photos...hmmmm, i say....

the answer to that is yes and no...

with the prompts we have for the next 6 months, you will be able to formulate some kind of photo with it. BUT a few of us have decided to take this on a journaling experience as well, so if you just want to do a journal page, that is cool. whatever you want. personally, i am going to make an 8.5x11 album with my bind-it-all (that is on my 8 page to do list} so that way i can do 8.5x11, 8x8, 6x6, 6x12..whatever size i feel like doing and embellish the cover of it as kind of a work in progress...

i hope that answers those questions for now! don't forget to shoot us an email if you want to.

so, with all that goodness, i leave with this..what does forward progress mean to you? here is something to get you thinking...until next time...

Well, here we go! Scrap the future. Now. or at least get ready to.

ahem. is this thing on?

no seriously. one thing you will notice about us is that we like to have fun here so there will be a lot of thinking & creating going on here but well, on the lighter side.

so don't look for appropriate punctuation or spelling or anything like that. NOPE. just look for some serious inspiration and great prompts to get your brain thinking of you and what you want out of your life, your future.

i am sure you read the header, if not, feel free, and get a good grasp of what we are doing here. a few of us gathered together over the past month or so and have realized we need to look to the future scrap the future, our dreams, challenges, changes, especially since we find ourselves scrapping the past so often.

so pull up & chair & a journal and look for inspiration from us.





and more to come within the next few days, weeks and of course, our first prompt coming in november but until then we will just tantalize you with some inspirational goodness. so please put us on your blog feeder b/c we will update often! and you won't want to miss what we've got to share.

AND, be warned, we are still under construction! you may have to blow off some dust as you come back in the next few weeks but it will be worth it.
