Last week, I sent out an old essay to all of my newsletter subscribers.
Back in the day, I wrote two books under the Clean & Simple Scrapbooking title. And in the second book, I wrote about the idea of being caught up with your memory keeping.
I decided to crack open the book and re-read it and it reminded me again that this whole hobby is really a joyous process if you let it be so.
I wanted to share the essay* with my blog readers today. I know there is crossover in that some of you subscribe to my newsletter. This year, I want to make more of an effort to use my newsletter for more than just “Hey, I have new things to sell you!” Of course, that will always be part of it, but I also want to send out things like this, or other things that feel less blog-oriented in one way or another.
Today, if you missed the newsletter, you can read the essay by clicking below.

*The essay is not meant to impugn those of you who derive joy from being caught up. It’s really meant for the many women I’ve talked to and emailed with over the years who feel this crazy pressure to be perfect with their memory keeping. Just so we’re clear.
Also, I love using the word ‘impugn.’ It’s not spelled like I think it should be.
