      Love all the Paper Coterie products! My favorite is the Quotables book - I am terrible at scribbling cute things my kids say on any scrap piece of paper I can find in the car or my purse(why is it they always say the cutest things in conversations in the car HA!) I would love a more organized way to capture them!

      I LOVE the memory keeper! I do a lot of digital scrapbooking and usually use Shutterfly for my books; but what an insanely clever, versatile way to keep up with these hook year. I have a sixth and fifth grader as well as my last son who just started kindergarten...these books will be very useful and fun to create

      I LOVE Paper Coterie! I have a memory keeper already that's absolutely fantastic - better than I expected even! - but my favorite product right now has to be the quotable documenting journal. With my toddler just starting to say funny things, it would be the perfect book to capture all of the memories!

      I love everything on Paper Coterie. I have a daughter going into college and 2 hours away from home. I have been looking for the perfect way to comfort her away from home. The memory books will be the perfect way to put some photos together for of parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and her pets. I also have a son that will be starting kindergarten and putting memories together for that first year of school is so important to me. My favorite product would have to be the swatch book. Would be perfect to carry in my purse as a brag book.
