I’m so excited to be joining my dear friend The Nester and a group of fabulous bloggers (see list below!) for their annual 31 Days series in October.
I will be writing 31 Days of Memory Keeping and I am so. excited. about it.
This series will be for anyone- not just crazy scrapbookers. Some of the topics we will be covering:
- Creating photo books
- Storing cards
- Capturing stories
- Managing all those digital photos
- Project Life
- And more!
My hope for this series is that you will be inspired to document YOUR story. We take so many photos today and they just sit on our computers or hard drives, stories untold. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t have to take hours and hours. As a mom of two who works full time, I am here to say you can do it. And 31 Days to Memory Keeping will help motivate you to do it!
I have already begun working on my content and have so many fun ideas to share. My creative juices are flowing and no matter what type of memory keeper you are – or aren’t – I’m confident you will discover a few new ideas.
Apparently, Paper Coterie and I are on the same wavelength because they are hosting “Begin Anywhere Month” this month, encouraging people to document their memories. Check out their site for details and create something for FREE with their generous $40 credit. Just use the code BEGINANYWHERE. I made this new Memory Keepers box, which I am going to use to store cards from Matthew in. It is 9×13, acid free, and took about 5 minutes to make. LOVE. I have never seen anything like this on a photo website before.
As my regular readers know, I am a huge fan of Paper Coterie’s photo journals as well. Amazing quality. Easy. Beautiful.
If you are a blogger, please consider creating your own 31 Days series this October. It will be fun! There will be several places for you to link up when we kick off in October. I am looking forward to reading some great content.
