I Just Want To SMASH My Family

The title got you, right?  Well now that I have your attention.....have you heard about the new SMASH Book from K & Company?  I am not a scrapbooker, but apparently they are the coolest thing to hit scrapbooking since....well...paper, I guess.  Simplistic, on-the-fly, and with no rules and no special crafting ability needed, you can Smash your everyday life between the pages of contemporary-style Smash Books.  An ultra-convenient combo glue pen/journaling marker comes attached to each book so it’s always at hand when you need it. Now, how cool is that?!
So, what do you Smash? Well, it doesn’t have to be a life event, just the special little moments and mementos of your day—some of that stuff in your junk drawer, maybe. A snapshot, a ticket stub from that movie you loved, a newspaper clipping, a magazine snippet, a cardboard coaster from a favorite restaurant, your child’s first crayon doodle…get the idea? Smash it, jot a note or add a caption sticker, and go!
Here's a video that sort of gives you the gist of it:

As you can see, this isn’t your traditional scrapbooking, but a cool twist, a fun new way of keeping your memories … unstructured, unfiltered, unencumbered by convention. For some of us, Smash Books may bring back memories of our childhood or teenage years when we kept books with doodles, ticket stubs, photos, quotes, and random writings.
I really like this idea, and will more than likely order one along with some fun accessories just to give it a shot. I am not trying to sell this to you, and I do not get any sort of commission off this.  I'm just trying to pass on the information.  If you are interested in purchasing or learning more, you can go to the K & Company website here.
