“The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
Here we are at the start of a new year. A new opportunity to reflect upon and dedicate ourselves to what we hold most dear. My wish for myself, for my family and friends, for you my dear digital scrapbooking community, for my country, and for the world is that in this year to come we bend ourselves towards kindness, towards empathy, and towards compassion. I hope that by the end of 2017 we’ll have found a way to leave the world a better place than we found it.
2016 was a year filled with blessings for me, and there has also been a lot of really hard stuff. More even than it being a hard year for me, it’s been hard for individuals and communities that I care about. It feels disingenuous to release this “Best Is Yet To Come” kit (which takes its colors and theme from on an older blog train kit I made several years ago, and which I started working on way back in September) without acknowledging that this past year has been hard and that I’m not actually sure what is coming next. I believe the best is indeed yet to come but, like the MLK quote above implies so beautifully, that highest manifestation of goodness may not come in this next year, or even in my lifetime.
For now I hope you will use The Best Is Yet To Come 2017 scrapbooking bundle to create layouts about your own hopes, dreams, wishes, and celebrations of the new year, as well as for your 2017 album title pages that will set the tone for how you document the year to come. I hope that if things become harder and murkier in the months to come that we can all be shining beacons in the darkness, keepers of hope, and share generously with our communities of our strength and wisdom.
The Best Is Yet To Come 2017 bundle was created to include everything you need to start documenting your 2017. This bright and shimmering bundle of kits offers plenty of flexibility and variety. If you’re taking on a Project Life, P365, P52, or other pocket scrapping project, you’ll find plenty to fill your pockets with 80 journal, title, and filler cards and a wide variety of page decorations specially sized to fit into pockets. If you lean towards more traditional layouts, The Best Is Yet To Come 2017 bundle contains nearly 100 papers, 170 elements, and four eye-catching alphas to bring your 2017 pages to life.
