Super happy to have come across this GEM!

Absolutely love listening to this show over the past two weeks. Jess and her guests makes it fun and informative. Listening to other people's processes for documenting their life in their albums. Very excited that she is going to be putting them out on a more regular basis. Bonus, she is a fellow Canadian.

I'm just binge listened to all 7 episodes

I'm really enjoying this podcast. I love hearing about other people's processes for project life. I am inspired to go do more pocket pages! It made me want to look back at my first project life album and I had a good laugh at myself for taking a picture of my cell phone with my playlist on it, instead of taking a screenshot...lol...
