Do Not Leave Unattended!

Jude over at Run 4ist Run and I are definitely on the same page! Jude has started a great little collaborative project called “Do Not Leave Unattended“. The project is about sharing images, insights, stories, quotes, anything to inspire others (kinda like here!), and it’s open to anyone. It’s as simple as signing up and a notebook is sent to you. Then you have two weeks to draw, collage, paint, write something, or paste in photos. After your little piece is complete you’re in charge of passing the notebook onto someone else you know.

Krissy from Paper Schmaper was the first to go! Love the Mark Twain quote: “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter”. This is what it’s about people! Booooooom Project #3 is about to launch as well so stay tuned!

Go sign up now! Do Not Leave Unattended!

  • Thanks Jeff :)
    Can’t wait to see what project #3 is!

  • Mitch

    Beautiful idea,
    I am all over this one.

  • yes! such a great idea – i hope people take photos or scan in their pages i want to kinda see things as they go along.

  • Jeff – part of the deal is to scan your page and email it to Jude before you send it off, so there’s record of what people are saying.. Just incase the book gets lost!

  • I am so on the list.

  • Mitch

    This has got me geeked to say the least.
