In this week’s episode of Crafty Ass Female, Amanda and I are talking about why we scrapbook. Whether you call it scrapbooking, memory-keeping, documenting, or have your own awesome term for it, we’re talking about why we take the time out of our lives to remember, and craft about, the moments that are special to us.

In this episode:

We explore why we as crafty ass females scrapbook/document/memory keep our lives. We talk about how our memory keeping has evolved over the years. We talk about documenting the right now and discuss documenting hard things.

We also spend time explaining that although we are ALL ABOUT paper + memories + badass photos, you won’t find us spending every waking moment posing + taking pictures for ‘the scrapbook.’ Life events are meant to be lived the art part comes later.

You all know this topic is my jam and I’ve got so much to say about it — Amanda and I had the best conversation; and I really can’t wait for you to listen and jump in and let us know what you think about it as well.
