I'm becoming very aware that my memory is atrocious and getting worse. So with that in mind and the fact that I have zillions of photos not getting looked at on my hard drive... I've decided to try scrapbooking again. Document my photos before I forget what they are showing.
I became quite disenchanted with scrapbooking, I never could find my style. After the initial excitement at discovering all the cool products out there I quickly realised that my trying to emulate people who cram billions of pounds worth of product onto a page (OK, slight exaggeration there, but you know what I mean) was not the way to go for me. Pretty to look at on screen but I had no clue how to store them and I didn't like my own pages like that, they just didn't ring true.
Plus I'm a cheapskate.
So looking back through the one solitary album that I did fill in the short time I scrapbooked - over a year ago now, I've picked out the few that I do actually like...
Keeping it simple.
So my challenge to myself is this:
Actually start scrapbooking, which means physically printing or ordering some photos.
Use only the stash I already have which should appease the skinflint in me. What embellishments I don't have will be made, won or swapped.
Journal - don't think about if it sounds cheesy or not to anyone but me - sharing on here is simply that, sharing. Really - the pages are for us here in this house, why do I worry what other people might think? No, I don't know either.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my ponderings :)
