The Find Your Voice Summer Storytelling Workshop kicked off today and to celebrate we're having a blog hop with lots of giveaways! We're going to have a blast this summer and we really hope you play along!
This workshop is about finding your storytelling voice. You are an awesome person with amazing stories, so this summer we're going to work together to find the most genuine and authentic way for you to tell those stories.
This workshop is for everyone! You definitely don't need to be a scrapbooker or paper-crafter to play along. We'll be telling stories through pictures, photographs, social media, prose, and more. The only thing you need is a willingness to become the author of your own story and the courage to step outside of your comfort zone.
What Find Your Voice Means to Me:
I've always been a storyteller. As a small child, I saved my money to buy pens, pencils and specialty stationery. I remember an old stationary shop in my hometown. *The smell is forever etched in my memory.* When I had collected a couple of dollars I would rush to said store and buy new pens and journals. Then, eagerly I would rush home to fill them with my thoughts. I did this for years!
It's no coincidence that I fell in LOVE with a hobby that encourages leaving a story behind. :)Now that I'm a mom, I journal for my kids, I want them to hear my voice through pictures, paper and ink. I want them to remember their childhood through these stories.
I tend to be very private with our stories. I try my best to hide my journaling behind photos, in pockets and envelopes. No matter your style, I hope you join me this summer...and I hope you FIND YOUR VOICE!
My sweet husband created these cut files for us: http://store.chictags.com/chtafrcutfif1.html feel free to use them!
