It’s funny how some months seem to have a color theme. Without even trying, I ended up with a lot of photos with yellow and gold in them which happened to work out perfectly with my calendar and month cards. I swear I didn’t plan it that way! Here’s what August looked like in my world:Read More
It’s almost the last day of the month and that means it’s time to take a few minutes and gather up your memories. This is my single most useful memory keeping tool! I’ve been doing this EVERY month since January of 2006. Now if the perfect time to start!Read More
For a long month, July sure did speed by! I’m getting ready to do my own personal roundup of the month’s events and I wanted to remind you that this is the perfect opportunity to take some time to document your own life. You can start this process at any time and you don’t have to do it every single month - although you will be glad if you are regular about it. Just look over the prompts and answer a few questions.

HOW TO GATHER JUNE MEMORIES:
Review calendars, social media posts, journal entries, etc. - I use the Momento app to keep everything in one place and then look back through my online calendar.
Make sure all your photos are uploaded and backed up to at least 3 places. If you use Google Photos, your photos will already be sorted by date. I like to search the month (June 2019) and then select all of those photos and create an album for them in Google Photos called June 2019. It’s not necessary, but I find it useful.
Gather any memorabilia from the month such as ticket stubs, invitations, programs etc. Scan or photograph them if desired and then upload them with your photos for the month. And/or put them in a file marked June 2019 if you plan to save the physical copies for scrapbooking or memory boxes.

I think it’s important to carve time for creative projects when you have the energy to work on them.
Here’s a little glimpse of my past month:Read More
