Smash Book Memory Making

I love pretty journals, but even more than that, I love documenting life. There is something about creating beautiful pages filled with memories. I have tons of journals filled with drawings, quotes, scriptures, pictures, and stickers, all documenting the major moments of my life. It's like scrapbooking in a way, but more like a diary of memories that are logged almost daily. Some of my journals are designated for specific things like taking notes when I read my bible or writing down ideas and thoughts for future projects or blog posts, but most of them are dedicated to documenting life.

These are only half of my collection

A little over 6 months ago I stumbled upon a pin on Pinterest labeled "Homemade Smash Book". The picture was enough to capture my attention, so of course I had to read more about what it was. I found out that it is very similar to what I did with my journals already. It's basically a diary of memories. You fill out a page for everyday and decorate it however you like. I figured since I had received a really nice hard back journal for Christmas that I would do a smash book for 2015.

Here are a few pages of what I have done so far.....

It has been so much fun decorating each page and documenting all the fun stuff I/we have done so far this year. I don't fill it out every day, just days that I want to remember. Sometimes I will do 2-3 pages at once, but I try to fill it out as soon as I can, so I don't forget about the stuff I want to document. I love that I have this and my other journals to look back at for years to come!

If you want some more ideas on how to create a smash book, just head on over to Pinterest and you will find a ton of ideas! Have fun making memories!

Many Blessings,
