I started scrapbooking in 2003. It was right at the beginning of the scrapbooking craze and I fell in love with it all – the papers, the stickers, the circle trimmers.
By 2005 I was entering contests and submitting pages for publication and in 2007 I started teaching classes.
I was obsessed.
In 2008 I had my first child and was that first-time mom.
Every milestone of my son’s first year was documented. I developed an online class encouraging other mom’s to scrapbook their chidlren’s first years.
But life got busier in the toddler years. And then I got pregnant with our daughter and was sick pretty much through the whole pregnancy.
As passionate as I remained about memory keeping I needed something simpler for documenting our family’s story.
Enter Project Life
This memory keeping solution has changed my life because of its simplicity.
Here’s why I love it:
It’s a kit
Every kit is beautifully designed.
It’s archival safe
As a memory keeper, this is important. I want my scrapbooks to be passed down to future generations.
You don’t need any skills to do Project Life. The products make it so easy.
It doesn’t take long to get lots of photos and memories documented.
And what’s most amazing is I am documenting more than ever.
So if you have hundreds, thousands of photos sitting on your hard drive, my message to you is this: Develop some of them. Put them in albums. Maybe try Project Life. (Check out Project Life creator Becky Higgins’ website for more information about this memory keeping tool).
Your family will be so thankful you took the time to document your story. Your pictures+ words are a legacy that will last for generations.
And it can be simple.
