My first journey into the crafting world as an adult was when I started scrapbooking. I had started a few projects while I was in college, but completed my first album of our honeymoon about a year after my first marriage. It was therapeutic for me and it helped me get through a very difficult time after a miscarriage. When I look at that album now, it was not my best or most artistically beautiful work, but it is full of memories of our honeymoon cruise and also healing thoughts of that heartbreaking time. That is one of the things that I love most about scrapbooking and memory keeping- the therapeutic benefit – both while you are creating and also when you and your family enjoy it for years to come. Now my main goal for memory keeping is to preserve all of family photos and memories for my boys to enjoy and share with their families some day.
They love to get the albums out and remember all of our fun and crazy times. Admittedly I am about 7 years behind in putting photos in albums though. When my youngest came along, it just got shoved to the back burner and I didn’t make time for it anymore. That is one of the reasons that I love Project Life by Stampin’ Up!- it allows me to get my photos in albums and i still have time to live my life and make more beautiful memories. You don’t have to spend hours on 1 page and worry if everyone will notice your fancy embellishments, it’s as easy as printing your photos, dropping them in the pockets and adding some coordinating journaling cards. I would love to show you how easy it is to get started and get those photos off your computer & phone or out of boxes and into beautiful albums that your family can enjoy for many years. Join me at my memory keeping day this Sunday, Aug 22nd from 1-6pm. You can bring anything you want to work on. I find that if I don’t have the time scheduled, then it doesn’t just happen for me. You need not have ONE creative bone in your body….just the desire to document and preserve your preciousl memories for your family! Email or text me to reserve your spot. Go ahead….LEAVE YOUR LEGACY
