It's Whatever Time -- April is here!

It's the time of the month again -- when Nat, Vic and I reveal the latest about what our Whatever Characters are doing! 

They found the note scrawled in a scrap of wood that was covered in layers of weathered and crackled paint. The note might have been as old as the scrap of wood – but Grandma could tell it wasn’t. The scratches looked “too new”.
Grandma immediately started thinking. 
Who needed her help. 
Why did they need her help.

Stay tuned for May -- when things start coming together in this story -- maybe Grandma, her daughter and granddaughter (who looks strangley EXACTLY like Grandma) will help. But will they help Mother or Father or maybe one of the kids? hmmm. lots to think about this month.

Want to play along?? We have just a few things to let you know about: 

  • Vicki, Nat and I have made a one-year commitment to each other and picked twelve photos with Whatevers whom we will give a story.
  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you – just right click on it to safe it to download and show us your version of The Whatevers.
  • There are no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There are no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There are no rules on the art form you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an art journal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us and show us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
  • If you want to participate we’ll have a linky list for each Whatever Post.
  • You can also join our The Whatevers -Facebook Page

  1. Oh.. you amaze me with your talent. I never know what's next with you. lol Love it!

  2. This story is really getting to be interesting. Can't wait to see what happens in May. My first thought reading this was thinking it would be fun to make faux wood and use crackle paint to weather it and then scratch a message of some sort for a project. I'm off to write this idea down in my idea notebook. Have a Great week!
