Welcome to Part 9 of a series entitled The Done Manifesto for Digital Scrappers. If you are just now joining, I’d encourage you to start from the beginning.
Sometimes a girl has time to sit and play and be ultra crafty. Then there are times when a girl just has to get things DONE. The Done Manifesto for Digital Scrappers is for those times.
If you are interested in just getting it DONE, this series is for you.
We’ve been talking about the Done Manifesto by Bre Pettis. It’s been quoted as being “a set of working rules based on a sense of urgency.” We are working together as a team and a community to see how this “sense of urgency” could be applied to our craft of digital scrapbooking by taking a look at one “Done rule” per week and relating it to our world. This week we are focusing on Mr. Pettis’ Rule #9.
Done Manifesto #9: People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
Yikes. I think what this statement is trying to say is—Don’t just sit there, DO something! That is something I can relate to. And, I think you can too.
The Done Manifesto for Digital Scrappers Rule #9.
No hoarding. Set your stash free. DO something with it.
I know people—okay, I know LOTS of people—who are digital scrapbooking “collectors”. . . period. For years and years and years they’ve been downloading and organizing and filing away lots and lots of beautiful scrapbooking supplies and tutorials, some of it costing them a small fortune. I’d wager that you know someone like this too. Yes?
It’s time for me to speak for the “stash” in your filing system. They want to come out and play! Don’t leave all that awesomeness cooped up.
Set your stash free! Create a gift tag. Design a greeting card or a Facebook cover. Share a memory on a simple scrapbook page.
Trust me. It’s liberating!
Now it’s your turn. Share your Rule #9 story.
