I have loved photos ever since I had my own camera- I enjoy taking pictures and I collect them. I started to scrapbook and archived photos when I was in sixth grade. I would create my own journal, put pictures in the pages and write stories about the photos. Sad to say that there was a time when I was in college that I got rid of them for some personal reason.
When I had a baby shower, my sister-in-law gave me a baby scrapbook so then I started getting into it again since I now have the time and also because I want to do something that I can give Madi when she grows-up. All the pictures and events in the scrapbook has its own story or insights from me that I’d like to share with her. I am also sharing some of the pages I created to you in this website (on my Projects page) and some in Facebook.
Scrapbooking takes a lot of time especially if you are a mother like me. It’s hard to find time with all the chores that needs to be done so I really don’t get to do as much scrapbooking as I want to. However, another reason I like to do it is because it makes me feel good- it brings out the creativity in me and it gives me the chance to recollect and reflect on some events. And after you are done, it’s satisfying to know that I have recorded a memory for my daughter, for me, or whomever is or are in the pictures.
