Each new year is an invitation to find more focus in your scrapbooking, along with a renewed sense of purpose and motivation. I use the calendar year as a signal to evaluate what’s working well—and what needs to change—in my creative hobby.

In this new video I’m sharing exactly how I plan to focus my memory-keeping efforts in 2018. You’ll learn what I did not keep up with this past year and the project I’ve always wanted to start. This is the first in a new series of recorded videos that will go live at 1pm CST each Tuesday on our YouTube channel.

I’ve spent a lot of time these past few months mulling over options and trying out some new things. I had to be really honest with myself about my creative habits, but I’ve never been more jazzed to kick off a new year. Here’s a recap of the resources and approaches mentioned in the video:

This is the sixth year that I’ve shared how I intend to approach a new year of memory keeping. Here are links to my previous plans:
