Putting Down Memories and Writing My Own History

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I'm one of those gals who liked to dabble in a little bit of everything. I love crocheting, painting, quilting, stained glass, cross stitching, scrapbooking and probably a few more things I am forgetting. Even though I love each of them, I go through fazes. I will work on one craft for a while then move on to another one.

Two years ago I started a scrapbook for John and I. At the time, I was completely gun-ho about it. I printed out tons of pictures and got lots of paper and fun stuff. Unfortunately, my printer ran out of ink for pictures and the scrapbook and all of it's components became dust collectors.

Recently I finally bought new cartridges for my printer and I started scrapbooking again! It feels good to be putting memories down to be kept forever. It's like writing my own history. I might be a little dramatic, but I already look back at the scrapbook and think how I forgot about that date, or remember a small moment that I would have forgotten otherwise.

I really love being creative and making my own scrapbook, but recently I've been wondering if I should try Smash Book or Project Life. Whenever I pull out my scrapbooking gear, I feel so un-creative. Like I can't come up with a cute layout or fun titles. It just feels so blah. When I think about other scrapbook options like Smash Book, I worry that it could be just as time consuming as making a full scrapbook, but Project Life might be a little too constricted for my creativity. Maybe I'm just too picky!

Do y'all scrapbook?
What do y'all use to hold all your memories?

  1. How awesome! I have a scrapbook of all the races we have done. It's a lot of fun.

  2. I used to love to scrapbook, but now I don't want to lug them around when we move. However, I will always have at least a few scrapbooks for Will and I ;) Very cute!
