LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

The art of journaling: Take notes as you go

One of the simplest things you can start doing today to help your journaling along is to take notes.

While we may not always have the luxury to sit down and write our hearts out whenever the urge strikes, it doesn't take more than a minute or two to scribble down a few lines or even just a few words. Just enough to fuel our memory down the track when we do manage to carve out time to sit down and journal.

There are so many simple and easy methods of taking notes.

You could keep a small notepad in the kitchen and scribble down your thoughts throughout the day.

You could jot down your notes or small scraps of paper and then collect them in glass jar.

You could use the backs of used envelopes and clip them to a magnet on the fridge.

You could carry around a small notebook and write down your thoughts in a list format.

Or if you prefer electronic means, download the simplest note-taking app you can find and record your thoughts as you go.

As for me, I always have with me my Moleskine soft cover notebook, and I always keep a pencil wedged within the pages so that I'm never without a writing utensil.

Whilst the pages at the front are for recording all my thoughts and ideas to do with specific projects,  I use the back pages solely to take notes for my journaling.

My note-taking method is simple: I add a new bullet point for every separate moment, incident, or thought that I want to journal about. If it's a 'big' or significant event that's made up of smaller, individual moments, then I'll include sub-bullet points underneath the bullet point. When I fill up a page, I move onto the next page and continue in the same manner.

By taking notes, I feel reassured that my memories aren't getting lost in the busyness of everyday life. 

By taking notes, I am able to gather all my thoughts and ideas about what I want to write about without the pressure of actually having to write it all out in one go.

By taking notes, I am taking a simple but tangible step towards preserving the stories of our life...
