True Stories

After a quiet weekend alone at home I'm ready to tackle the week.
Awoke to rain, to dark, to chill. It is truly autumn and I am so thankful.

For the past several years I've thought about taking a class from Shimelle. I love her work and have seen many people's projects who've taken her classes.

So, with the rain, the dark, the desire to do something and to celebrate (my little word of the year) I decided to take the plunge and participate in Shimelle's True Stories class. Today was the first day (nothing like making an advanced decision - haha), I signed up this morning and started by reading the first prompt.

This is a journaling, telling your own stories class and I'm so excited. This is right up my alley. I love to journal and I love the idea of school so assignments are fun for me.

And if I wasn't positive that this would be a good experience before I watched the video and fell in love. Watch...it's short and inspiring!

I'm off to read the rest of the class materials. Maybe I'll share a bit later...

Have a wonderful Monday. May the rain shower you with love!


  1. Dear Jerrie,

    I watched and I am inspired! Thank you for sharing. I am excited to see what comes from you taking the class.

    As much as I would LoVe to join you I am unable to do so. This year. May be next time. I am in the throes of a building project and everyday I have company, today the electrician, the dry wall guys and the cabinet maker are all coming to my house. On the days that no one is here I am running from Home Depot to Lowe's to Lynden Floor.

    I hope to sleep in my new room by December and get my life back in time to do the December Daily.

    Thanks for sharing and for the good reminders to send notes.

    Take care-

  2. Oh fabulous - I am taking this class too and looking forward to curling up with a cup of coffee and writing away :)

  3. You get so much bang for your buck with Shimelle. So glad to have met you and thanks for your comment - looking forward to your entries.

    Hair straighteners - GHDs in particular have singularly revolutionised my life.

    No exaggeration!!!!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog :-) Looking forward to getting to know you more through your True Stories :-) x
