Hey, crafty ass females! We are two weeks into the new year + here we go! Today’s show is another re-release from our episode archives that we are affectionately calling ‘FROM THE VAULT’. As we prepare for the second half of season 3 - we will be pulling some of our most relevant & favorite episodes from seasons 1 + 2 to share with you again. TODAY: a re-release of EP. 10 where Amanda + Kristin explore the question ‘WHY DO WE SCRAPBOOK?’. Enjoy, if you haven’t heard it yet.
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 above 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.
FAVORITE QUOTE FROM THIS EP //
"Taking a picture is a two-dimensional thing...a picture is a two-dimensional object...and sometimes you just really need to live in a three-dimensional world." -- Kristin
