Pocket Scrapbooking is the generic term for "Project Life" -- a commercialized term coined by Becky Higgins. In essentials, it's a form of scrapbooking in which you use page protectors with pockets to wrangle your memories. I started doing Project Life and sharing the pages on my blog back in 2012:
- My life got complicated when I started dating after divorce. I needed a bit of privacy from the judgment of the internet.
- Most people who read my blog didn't seem to be interested in scrapbooking. I noticed that there were very few comments or likes on posts about it. I'm not 100% driven by that stuff, but it just didn't see worth it to take the photos and edit them and write the posts if no one was interested.
- I got some advice -- from someone I trust -- that I shouldn't mix up my "crafty stuff" with my "fine art stuff" or people would get confused. This is a hard one for me because I love scrapbooking and memory keeping. I also love creating fine art. I think they can co-exist. In my opinion, we create too many boundaries. After all, what is an art journal but a form of memory keeping? Creativity is creativity and it is glorious in all its forms.
Do you scrapbook? I'd love to know!
