Hey..Is this thing on?


You have come to a place that i hope becomes very inspirational for you.
i have lots of fun things in store for us,
and i hope to learn just as much from you as you do from me.

I came up with the idea for Overlooked when I was thinking about those everday things that we use, touch, or do everyday. They are so obvious that you don't even think twice about them, much less take a picture of them and scrapbook them. They deserve a page protector too!

I also am intrigued by how fast things change. How when you take a slice of life, and look back at it, things can be so very different. Like Ferris Bueller says: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. I want to preserve those things. They reflect who I was, what I was doing, what was going on during that particular time in my life.

So to start our journey...this is how it goes.

On January 7th, I will post Subject One.
You will have a week to SNAP a picture of Subject One, and post it here.

On January 14th, I will post the journaling ideas, prompts, suggestions for you to JOT down regarding Subject One.

On January 21st, I would love to see the layouts created from the combination of your picture and your writing.

Throughout the month, I will have different inspirational things happening. Whether its a picture, a song, an idea, a recipe, a joke. So always feel free to give the blog a click and see if anything is going on or anything new is here.

I chose to make this an every three week challenge broken into an every week item. There are so many amazing challenges going on, not to mention children, husbands, wives, jobs, laundry, cooking, excercising, email, dishes, and PTA.

There are no winners, no losers here at Overlooked. I will however of course play games and give out goodies from time to time to keep it fun and to keep you on your toes. But I WILL NOT be picking favorites. I don't have the heart to do that, and I know how it feels to work hard and feel inadequate. So I will take no part in it!

Call me Stuart Smalley, but we are all good enough, smart enough, and creative enough.

So leave me a note and say Hi, and let me know that you are excited and interested and eager to get your "overlooked" on.....

Until January 7th...
