Our Memory Journaling 101 class will be a recurring Zoom class on the Second Thursday of every month from 6:00PM-8:00PM MST.

A memory journal is a collection of your memories. Those memories can be of everyday life (which is what I am doing now), travel adventure, special occasions, tribute journals to those we have lost, or a daily journal for your thoughts. There is no right or wrong way to do a memory journal, but I’m here to give you some ideas, kits, and guidance as you begin (or continue) this journey.

If you are like me and have tried memory planning, project life, or bullet journaling and just can’t find the right fit, this may be the perfect class for you. In addition to introducing you to this quick and easy method of preserving your memories, we will discuss how to make journaling easier using a several step method.

Want to know more, sign up here for the Memory Journal class to receive updated information on class times, kit availability, and discussion topics.

Join me as I flip through my January memory journal and discuss various techniques and ways to create a memory journal.

You can also watch on our Youtube channel. Don’t forget to subscribe so you are notified of future videos.

I find that I can "keep up" with the daily layouts so much easier as it takes me about an average of 15 minutes to do each page which fits right in with my Creative 15 theme for 2021.
