Memories hold a special place in everyone's life; especially when these beautiful recollections revolve around children.
Keran Barrett's insight:

But wouldn't a printed book of words aad pictures be so much more tangible and something to keep on a bookshelf. I wonder how much digital information will get forgotten and not accessed.

Writing Tips: Carry a Notebook

Writing Tips: Carry a Notebook | Life Matters - Beyond Scrapbooking techniques | Scoop.it
One of the most widespread writing tips in the world: carry a notebook. But is a notebook really necessary in the digital age?
Keran Barrett's insight:

Like most things in life it's about balance - choose what suits you best at the time. At times a notebook is quicker to jot something down in and we often remember words better when we picture them in our minds on paper. Writing can also bring a different clarity - and ensures we don't forget the simple act of writing!

Sharilee Swaity's curator insight, March 18, 2013 8:48 AM

Carrying a notebook ... is this advice still relevant today, with all of our technology. Yes, says this writer, even if the notebook is actually a smart phone application. The form of notebook may have changed, but the concept is still correct. Great reminder for writers. It is so good as a writer to capture those ideas as they come, whereever you happen to be!

Arts and Crafts also offers classes and tools for matting, framing, laser etching, scrapbooking, crochet, knitting, sewing and more.
Keran Barrett's insight:

I hope that as well as continuing these valuable traditional crafts that men also contribute their stories to scrapbooks. Often seen as the terrain of women, I've taught men to put words on paper with their pictures and it was wonderful to see them realise they have a much needed contribution to make.
