Find Your Voice: Week 1

I am really enjoying this project. I took me a while to get started, but it all started falling into place late last night. :)

Here is the cover of my SmashBook that I am using. There is a nifty pocket in the back to put my worksheets.

Here are a few fun supplies I picked up at Target this morning that I can't wait to use!


It took me a while to fill out the worksheets, and for a few minutes I felt kinda stressed, but I went and watched some My Little Pony and got some perspective. I'm not deep or philosophical. I'm pretty laid back and I like cute things. So my worksheet is a true reflection of me (also with the lack of sentences, just words and phrases, that's how I think). I also had to start with the last question and work my way to the first...


Lesson One: Intro
What is storytelling to you? What stories do you want to tell?
Story telling is about the journey (good and bad), the little things, and the memories. I want to tell all the things I never want to forget. My treasures, memories, and love!

Who are you?
quirky, phase-y, colorful, kawaii, adventurous, aware, indecisive, learning focus, growing, brave

What are your storytelling goals? How do they fit in with the rest of your creative and life goals?
goals: be expressive, find myself in this new stage of life, try something new
fits in: be creative always (in everything), find happiness in the everyday, discover the spirituality within myself, be a positive role model for my daughter

What are your favorite stories? What do they have in common?
Fav stories: Sailor Moon, Harry Potter, Edie, Legally Blonde, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Enchanted, Beauty and the Beast
Common: magic, humor, romance, tragedy, LIFE!, action, spontaneity

What styles do you find aesthetically pleasing? What are you drawn to visually?
faces, eyes, color, simple, cute, black and white with pops of color, vintage, kitschy, minimalist flare

Which storytellers do you admire?
Josh Ritter, Lisa Loeb, Jewel, Jenny Lewis, Ayn Rand

What is your ideal story? What are you looking to get out of the FYV workshop?
Ideal story: real, raw, magical, journey, spiritual, awakening

I know my answers may not make much sense to you, but that's ok.

  1. YAY!!! I couldn't comment a moment ago.

    I love this post, friend. I can definitely understand what you've wrote, and shared. I also LOVE that you watch My Little Pony. PLEASE tell me you were watching the Friendship is Magic version?! It's mine and Jen's favorite. Who is your favorite pony? Who are you most like???

    I also love that we share a love for kawaii everything. I believe you do, BUT I could be wrong... Do you like Lolita fashion? What about Mori Girl fashion?

  2. We watch FIM. Pinkie Pie is my favorite. I like how random she is, and her love of cupcakes. I would definitely live in her house. I think we have the most in common ;)

    I definitely love kawaii and all things Japanese. I think Lolita fashion is very artistic and pretty. I think I'm more of a Moro girl. :)

    Yay thanks for reading! It was kinda weird for me to put the answers to my worksheet up, and then I got a mean comment and I was like boo. But you made me feel loads better about sharing. So thanks! :)
