We’ve got one of my favorite people here to talk about a non-stressful, non-pushy, non-crazy way to document your stories in 2014! You may recognize Danielle Taylor from her popular Scrapper on the Street videos. She’s also my “enforcer,” the one I send out to crack kneecaps when bills aren’t paid. Just kidding – but she is Italian, and she is a Staten Island girl, so… well… you get it. Anyway, she’s introducing us to her Smashing 2014 year-long class for next year. I’ll be participating, and hope you’ll think about it, too… because: 1. It’s gonna be fun! 2. It’s a great way to document stories you don’t necessarily want to cover in your “big” scrapbooks 3. The community is supportive, accepting, and (did I say) fun! 4. It’ll provide flexible structure for any year-long journaling project 5. If you sign up before 12/31 through my link you’ll get $10 off with code layoutaday AND a free video class, “Don’t Say Cheese: Taking Natural Kid Photos” with Katrina Simeck from True Scrap 4. Just go through the checkout process, then email your receipt to with “Smashing 2014 Bonus” in the subject line …and I think it’s gonna be fun, too.
