Paper + memories. Memories + paper. A + K have a deep love & affinity for both, and chances are you crafty ass females visiting this space today do too. Let's discuss! // (NOTE: the pages below were completed in the Awesome Ladies Project Story Journal.)
Amanda + Kristin explore why we as crafty ass females scrapbook / document / memory keep our life. They talk about how their memory keeping has evolved, and discuss documenting hard things.
A + K also explain that although they are ALL ABOUT paper + memories, you won't find them spending every waking moment posing + taking pictures for 'the scrapbook.' Life events are meant to be lived. The 'art' part comes later.
