We indeed are the lucky ones. The ones who not only have creative tools at our fingertips but the ones who use those tools to tell the stories of us. Our milestones, our struggles, our successes, our relationships, our family, our love, our joy, our daily lives, our most mundane and our most magic. We point, focus, shoot. We talk, write, share. And with it all, we are documenting what’s most important to us. We are writing the story of our lives, with every photograph, every word, every memory.
This month you are invited to join us as we honor the power, the beauty and the truth of our stories. It’s definitly going to be a celebration as we join forces with the amazing folks of Paper Coterie. This month they introduce their Everyday Storytellers; some amazing women (who you may recognize) who will be sharing their stories over there in hopes to encourage you to tell your own, which is why for this very special One Word Project we have chosen the word story.
As we head into September, the summer bids us farewell, the kids get back to school and routines settle in, let’s have our very own, grown-up girl, Shutter Sister Story Time! Heck, why not make it a party! Our stories are worth all the hoop-la!
What would a party be without presents and prizes? Your heard right, we’ve got lots of gifts to give this month thanks to Paper Coterie. They really know how to throw a party!
Can’t wait another minute to hear more? Then let us unwrap it for you…everyone who chooses to share an image with us in our One Word Project flickr pool this month will receive a special gift from Paper Coterie! Everyone! All you have to do is:
1. shoot your story (for more info about how the OWP works, check out the about page)
2. upload your image to the Shutter Sisters OWP pool on Flickr (tag it “story”)
3. visit Paper Coterie on Facebook and tell them, that you shared a story with Shutter Sisters
