Scrapbooks: Daily Post

scrap

I’m kind of proud of all of the ten to fifteen scrapbooks that I’m in the middle of doing. Has anyone ever really completed a scrapbook? I’ve been doing the scrapbooks for almost 13 years. It’s not the layout or stickers that I’m the most proud of. It’s the subject matter. . . my daughters. I wanted to have a record of their lives. So I started scrapbooking and taking lots of photographs. Sometimes they help me put them together, which is harrowing and fun all at the same time. Someone said I am a bit of a control freak with the scrapbooks.
Someday the scrapbooks will belong to them. So I better learn to let go and remember that I’m still the mom even when they are all grown up. Someday there will be grandchildren and new scrapbooks.

  1. wow – you have many going on. I used to make them but do not anymore – well, I do keep a running run for the year – and then have two pages per month. It is at least something – but it sounds like you have some GEMS in the works – and will be treasured for a very long time. 🙂
