Life in Pockets

Life in Pockets is a term I use to describe my yearly memory keeping, in a pocket page style format. Memory keeping using pocket page style scrapbooking has become a popular way to document your memories. Whether you’re documenting your life in a yearly album using a weekly, monthly, or just the big moments, pocket pages are a quick and easy way to get your memories and stories into an album. Memory keeping, for me, has always been in a family yearly album, but I have seen the pocket page format used in memory planners, journals, and traveler’s notebooks. I just love seeing little pockets full of memories and stories!
