Scrapbooks: Daily Post

Advertisements

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.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.

  1. Easter Ellen – Toronto, Ontario, Canada – Sharing my life and faith through poetry, pictures and life stories As have many, I have had a lot to overcome in my life.. I've asked "why" so many times. As time passes, the "whys" have become the reason that I am who I am today. In what I have been overcoming, I am becoming. The struggles that I have had from the least to the most heart-breaking have all been lines written in the book of my life. I have so much to share. I hope to be an encouragement to those who are going through their own struggles. That my space will be a place that brings peace of spirit and maybe a smile. At the least, I hope to touch your heart. I share because my heart longs to give hope to others, to show that even in the hardest places, there is a door waiting to be opened and beauty waiting to be found.

    Oh my gosh that is a long time to be working on something, but then again, it will be worth it when your done and a treasure for your daughters.

  2. 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. 🙂
