New: Superlatives

Superlatives Preview

I made this kit about a year ago when we finished our year of traveling. Our trip started from Korea (where we had been living for 2 years teaching English) and ended here in Amman, Jordan. We visited 50 cities in 18 countries over 310 days. Here's a little video with a few more details:

Needless to say it was a rather intense, overwhelming experience. I look back at the pictures now with good memories and a feeling of relief that I'm currently not on the road. While I love traveling, I also really love being at home. I spent several months after the trip without any real knowledge of where I was. I would constantly look up from my book or a movie and spend a few minutes trying to decide where I was. There were a lot of options.

I made this Superlatives kit to help me make a cohesive journal project of our time on the road. I wanted neutral elements and papers to stay in the background of the photos and lists I wanted to highlight. A superlative, according to Merriam Webster:

Superlative Def

As in, "The superlative form of 'nice' is 'nicest'; the superlative form of 'bad' is 'worst'; the superlative form of 'interesting' is 'most interesting.'" Often seen in yearbooks, I wanted to do a similar type of thing to bring together the rather disparate experience of traveling on 2 continents. Since I'm a terrible journaler, making lists is something I can do without too much stress, and I thought other people might enjoy thinking about and scrapping some superlatives from their own life. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

My new standard for releasing items on the site will be to upload the kits, and then over the next couple of weeks upload the individual assets, so those are coming if that's what you are waiting for.
