Your December Story | I’m Giving Away A Free PassPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Nov 19, 2013 in Blog, DecemberDaily, Scrapbook, Sponsors and Giveaways | 88 comments
I got a peek at “Your December Story” and I’m giving away a free pass
I checked out lesson 1 of Debbie Hodge’s Your December Story this weekend, and I want to tell you about the class and give you a peek at how it’s inspired me.
CaptureYour365 wouldn’t exist without Debbie Hodge. I was sitting next to her on a bus in 2009 when she asked if ever thought about teaching photography. And the rest is history! The amazing thing about Debbie (and her classes) is her ability to see things with a creative twist. She puts the smart into scrapbooking in an insightful and challenging way. If to create a record of your December like none before, get in on this class.
I’m also giving away one pass to the class. (If you already purchased the class, you’ll get a $24 gift card good for any other GIS/MSD classes.)
Your December Story is shaped around the Hero’s Journey
This December, like Dorothy dropped into Oz or Alice tumbled into Wonderland, you will receive a call to adventure. You will move from the ordinary world into a one of magic and tests as the holiday season arrives.
Many of the most-loved and best remembered stories play out in a story form described by Joseph Campbell as “the hero’s journey.” This class has prompts and page ideas for visual storytelling that have you telling Your December Journey, from the heralds, to the challenges, mentors, special tools and the return to the known world and what you take forward.
You can take the journey and get a $10 gift card . . .
but only through midnight Wednesday, November 20th. When you purchase “Your December Story” by midnight PT, Wednesday, November 20, you also get a $10 gift card that you can use for Get It Scrapped and Masterful Scrapbook Design classes. Click here to purchase Your December Story and get the $10 gift card.
This is what I think of the class and how it inspired me
The English major geek in me, loved seeing the format Debbie used for this class. In Lesson One she draws from Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and Peter & Wendy to capture the story of your everyday life leading into December. She provides prompts for your written stories about your November activities to create a scrapbook page . She includes page examples pages as well as a lesson on visual story telling (and isn’t that what we are all about at CY365?).
As I read through the first lesson I kept thinking, “anyone who has taken a photo a day with our November list is ready for Lesson 1!” Even without a photo a day, Debbie will guide you through creating your everyday story. I loved her journaling prompts that include thoughtful questions about how you prepare for your holiday journey, where you store your decor, and more. Follow her prompts and you will document the most complete story you’ve ever told about your holiday!
I’m excited to see what the other 5 lessons bring. Her class beautifully compliments Your Holidays Captured Through The Lens. Your Holidays will walk you step-by-step through the photos to go with the hero’s journey of Your December Story.
