This is the 10th day in a series: 31 Days of Memory Keeping, check out all the posts here.
For the next couple days, I am going to be talking about journaling and why I think it is an important part of my memory keeping process.
I have never been very good at journaling. I love the idea of it, but never have been able to do it regularly enough to make it a habit.
But, when I read the book Writing Motherhood it really motivated me to get more stories down.
Then I discovered the amazing custom journals on Paper Coterie.
And my motivation turned to action.
I created a journal with each child's photo and name. A few nights a week I write a bit about them – stories, milestones, thoughts.
It doesn't take too long and is an easy way to record memories and leave a legacy of love for my children.
I am thrilled to share that Paper Coterie has generously offered to give all Mom Creative readers a free photo journal – just pay shipping! Shipping is about $9, and it is worth penny. Simply visit PaperCoterie and use the code MOMCREATIVE1. The code is valid until 10/21. I have five of these journals, and I love and use every one. I hope you will take a few minutes to make one. I know you will love it – and it will bless your children!
Of course, you can certainly use these journals for a million things too. And they make great gifts.
On 10/17 and 10/24 I will share other memory keeping products that I use and love from Paper Coterie and you will get to try them for FREE too.
