There are scrapbooks that have become the biggest craze... The ones that I got involved with long before they were a craze and now I have LOTS of. The kind with pictures, stickies, embellishments, and fancy writing...
And then there are Scrap - Books. The kind that are filled with nothing but scraps from memorable moments. Another thing I started long ago and was told by my MIL that "Some day you will be too busy to keep up with things like that" Well, I beg to differ. Granted, I have to work on it at 1AM, but I will find time to do something so worthy! *smile*
Yes, I pretty much keep everything from every where, and if it is small enough to fit in an album, then it gets stuck down. No pictures go in this type of Scrap-Book. Its just all things from places we've been. And unfortunatly I almost got caught up in the "no time to do this" and the pile of scraps has gone mad.
Tonight I did it... Took 3 hours, 30 pages, 15 page protectors and 3 boxes of stickies, but I'm once again all caught up on my Scrap-Book. And how fun to look back on the past year as I was putting every thing in the album. All the festivals, and fun things, learning and treasure hunts. B-day parties and Holiday events. So many things to look back on with a smile. Things I may have forgotten as the days pass and memories fade.
Tomorrow, I'll go through these books with Veg, I'm sure he will enjoy seeing his past year unfold. And possibly I'll be able to interest him in other years too. Its fun to reminsce with him, because he has so many questions. It helps to revisit those special times.
Good Night All... Its definitely past the sleepy stage and before I just ramble, I'll say Good Night!
