Anyone signed up for this from Keri Bradford? Sounds very interesting.. Any thoughts or reviews?
|Posted: 2/1/2013 11:54:19 AM|I am taking this class.
Monday is week 6 and I am pleased with it. Every Monday you will get an email with the "prompt" and her story telling musings/inspiration/hints and the cut files or print files she makes with the prompt theme. I don't have a cutter so I will be using the PNG files as word art.
It is nothing too elaborate or involving. I find I can read the prompt and think about it for a few days and then write some memories by week's end. I have been in a reflective/memory mood for the past few months so this is a welcome continuation of that.
So far I haven't finalized how I want to present my stories. Many are using composition type books, adding the cut words and minimal embellishments (washi tape, little arrows, small things). I might do a 3 ring binder and letter sized pages. You can do anything you want.
She has a private facebook group so you get a bit of community, too.
Price wise it seemed reasonable for a full year of topics to work on. I know I won't do it every week, but if I did half or so, I'd have 30 more memories that don't fit my chrono scrapping books and they are about ME, which I have always wanted to put together.
Good luck with your decision!

It's helping me finally write some favorite, or important, stories from childhood. I've noted how they impacted decisions I made later in life, or we make as a family now.
It's a versatile class. I'm only capturing the stories, but the graphics Kerri provides are fantastic for LO's for this class and more.

I am enrolled. I love it! Nice way to journal your history. Her prompts really help to talk about subjects from your childhood such as games we played, travel, etc. I am really enjoying it. I get the prompt on Monday, then usualy think about it for a day or two, then it takes me about an hour to write down my thoughts. I am using a mini avery binder and I do use the weekly die cut file she sends, plus washi tape to decorate. I always look forward to each week's prompt and so far am not having any trouble keeping on time for each week.

I am really enjoying it. I don't do Facebook so I feel like I'm out in the field alone, without any input from others. But I am finding it fun and I love the cut files.

I still want to sign up. I understand you can sign up any time. Would it be a big challenge to sign up later on?
|Posted: 2/1/2013 9:01:46 PM|Thinking I will definitely sign up this weekend. Really want to get down some stories about ME because it's important for my kids to really know about their mother. I wish I would have something like this about my mother...

I think you could sign up at any time and do the lessons to catch up, or just do the first one and keep going. Each lesson is a separate idea.
Lots of good ideas and cute cut files.
