This month I am Mixbooking it with Mixbook.com at home and at Panera - creating memory story books. It's one of my goals to actually get started on this year. Mara is creating a recipe book too.
I have boxes of photos, photo albums, keepsakes and scrapbook boxes. I want to make books from all of these. There's so many I want to make: for each of the kids school and growing up years, my childhood, my Granny's resume (as she calls her life memories), vacations, adoptions, etc. Where do I start? I am kind of a perfectionist when it comes to this kind of thing. I am trying to get over this because it has been holding me back. I am going to work on some of Kyle's memory books since he will be graduating this year.
That's all past memory keeping. Then there's this year, here and now. Can I start figuring out how I want to move forward in keeping memories so that I don't always have to play catch up?
I have been reading about Project Life, but that doesn't feel like me. I am not a traditional scrapbooker either. I do like storybooks and journals. I might try making some bound digital books with extra blank pages at the end to hand write some notes. I think the most important thing I can do is get started!
I will be writing another post on what I hope to do with all the keepsakes and projects that don't fit into memory books.
How do you keep memories?
