Here at Finders Keepers, we are having a bit of a love affair with Bullet Journaling. (If you are new to this really cool, listing kind of planning, check it out here. ) And, as anyone who has searched for Bullet Journals on Pinterest can attest, bullet journaling can be incredibly beautiful, as well as practical.
It all begins with a notebook of some kind. (We love this Moleskine with the dot grid and this Traveller’s Notebook in particular, but any old notebook will do.) The first few pages are taken up with an index, but the pages that follow can literally be anything you need them to be.
(We have offered lots of visual inspiration below, and have done our best to credit our sources. Sometimes, as you may have noticed, orphan pictures drift around on the Interwebs.)

Aaaannd…here’s a special bonus–a Buzzfeed article with loads of more ideas!
Before we were Finders Keepers, each of us walked a lonely, solitary crafting life. We each got pleasure from crafting in all kinds of mediums, but we worked alone, behind closed doors, neither of us knowing the other existed. When we met, it was at a school function. Rachel was a parent of a 2nd grader and Sarah was her child’s teacher. And–get this–the school had no art program. When Sarah decided to start one, she looked around for parents who might help (or “suckers,” as they’re called in the ed. biz….) and hit upon Rachel and we’ve been peas and carrots ever since.
Together we have over 50 years of crafting experience and expertise. In addition to the art program we started together, we have worked at craft fairs, been co-dependent, independent, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, and launched Finders Keepers, an online papercrafting and memory keeping source for inspiration and our handmade, custom designed memory keeping kits.
Over the years we have heard from so many people who would like to become crafty sorts, but feel they can’t for whatever reason.
“I don’t have time.”
“I don’t have a craft room”
“I’m not creative”
“It’s too expensive.”
We started Finders Keepers to help these people. We believe everyone has creativity inside of them (although it may have been squished or lying dormant for some time). We believe that getting pictures off of our phones and into albums is an act of love. We believe that individuality and self expression are important–even vital–aspects of day to day living.
We want to help you find the time and make space in your world to celebrate your creative self (all in a very affordable way).
