So... I don't have a project to share and I know it has been a long time since my last post. I thought I would be upset about that, but I think I am still in the glow of loving the final, finished project so I am just basking in that! And I love that I made something that seems a little more than just decoration, something really meaningful to me. Have you had that experience with papercrafting or memory-keeping? It really is a first for me! I used to journal all the time, but this is something different because those were intended only for my daughter and only to share in the unknown and far-away future! This is something that is in my family room! I got a taste of this around Christmas when I completed an assignment for Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas. One day's prompt asked that we write a letter to our future selves. Mine had me in tears. I crafted a hidden pocket to keep it in that most people would look right on past but it would be there for me to find... or for someone who really cared about details and hidden treasures.
I wanted to share another workshop they are having at Big Picture Classes: The Big Idea Festival. No, I don't work for them and, no, I don't get a discount for mentioning them, but this is free and it promises to provide more personal, thought-provoking memory-keeping. Since it is FREE, I feel very little guilt suggesting that you join me!
And speaking of stuff to share to save money, I read about Groovebook on Sarah Hamer's blog and decided to try it myself. It is a photo printing subscription service that prints from a smartphone. They will print and ship 100 photos a month, for $2.99. They are bound but are perforated for easy removal and have the date and time printed above them.
