Me Stuff

I'm Kristin and a  I'm a millennial scrapbooker who loves graphic design, social justice, my iPhone, and Jeffrey.  I'm 27 years old, living right outside of NYC in Northern NJ. I'm a memory-keeper at heart and I have my own quirky way of going about it. I love Project Life, Journaling, taking photos with my iPhone, and sharing on social media (I love internet friends). I Love telling my story and inspiring others to do the same. Check out this self-interview to learn lots more about who I am and what I love. 

Here are a few of the cool things going on at rukristin papercrafts:

The Currently Journaling Challenge 
Currently is a weekly journaling challenge designed to fit in perfectly with Project Life. It can also easily be tailored to fit whatever your personal memory-keeping style is. Every Friday, I share my Currently list journaling card here on my blog, as well as on various social media sites like TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.

Journal the Everyday: Mini-Book Kit & Online Class
Journal the Everyday is a self-paced online course designed to guide you through creating a 30 page mini-book with an emphasis on documenting the day-to-day moments in our lives.THIS IS THE KIT I'M USING FOR 30 DAYS OF LISTS

In order to be successful at Project Life, you need to make it work for you -- Join me in figuring out how to integrate this fanastic memory-keeping system into our lives.

A little bit more about me and the stuff that keeps me super busy

 I think that really sums up what I'm going for. Not just scrapbooking, or paper-crafting, or another crafty blog -- but me, and the way I do memory-keeping. iPhone pictures, lists, social-media, all the stuff that gets used on a day-to-day basis. Which will hopefully inspire other people to do the same. So going forward, along with the scrapbooking and paper-crafting posts, I'll be talking a lot more about everyday ways to supplement your memory-keeping. Whether it be journaling prompts, social media tips, handwriting techniques, and whatever else comes along.
