this month's theme

Welcome to the VIP Monthly Mini-Workshop. This month’s theme is Right Now. 

Our mini-workshops are broken down into three sections:

  1. Learn: The goal of the Learn section of our monthly mini-workshops is to inform and educate on our monthly topic.
  2. Practice: The goal of the Practice section of our monthly mini-workshops is to hone our basic life-documenting skills through our three monthly challenges. 
  3. ExploreThe goal of the Explore section of our monthly mini-workshop is to illuminate and inspire through our monthly topic. 

Our Awesome Ladies Team is here to help guide you through each month’s theme. Included in the monthly workshop is a workbook, audio/video lesson, monthly challenges, private forums and more.

In the Learn Section we exercise our heads through a short audio/video lesson and coordinating workbook. In this month’s lesson, I discuss Right Now, our storytelling theme and what it means to our creative storytelling lives.

Watch the video and download the workbook to get started with this month’s storytelling theme. The Awesome Ladies Learn Team provides additional inspiration with private blog posts on our topic throughout the month.

After you’ve watched this month’s video and flipped through workbook, we’d love it if you head over to the Right Now storytelling forum and join our discussion on this month’s topic. Feel free to start a post about your own Right Now documenting thoughts and experiences.

Section Two Practice


Mirror Selfie. The mirror selfie is the easiest selfie to take. Get in front of a mirror and start snapping photos. Try out different poses, different smiles, and different faces. Remember to look for the camera lens in the mirror for the best outcome.

For this challenge use a mirror selfie in one of your projects.


List Journaling: Top Five. List journaling is an easy way to get your thoughts down onto the page without having to worry about full sentences and punctuation.

For this challenge, use a top five journaling list in one of your projects.


Patterned Paper. Patterned paper is one of the workhorses in the scrapbooking world. It comes in all shapes and sizes and there’s some patterned paper for even the pickiest among us. Maybe you love layering patterned paper, or using it to pop off your white space, patterned paper uses are endless.

For this challenge, use patterned paper as one of the main focal points in your project.
