“Think imaginatively using new ideas instead of traditional or expected ideas.”
Can you guess what the sentence above is a definition of? I’m almost one hundred percent positive that you’ve heard it before…
Need a hint? A square box….or lots of little square boxes.
Did you get it now? Alright, let’s check your answer.
I like to think of my scrapbooks as more than just a collection of photos that highlight our family events but rather as my own personal diary that tells the story of my life. So I like to include mention of significant local and world events in my albums along with commentary of how the events impacted me and my family at the time. This expands my role from memory keeper to history keeper. Essentially my albums have become a snap shot of history in the making.
There are so many special moments to capture each year.
- The birth of a child or grandchild
- A Wedding
- A Milestone Birthday
And, then there are the day-to-day things like:
- Baby’s First Steps
- Kindergarten Graduation
- T-ball Game
- First Day of School
- First School Play
- Baking Cookies with Grandma
- Playing in the Snow
- First Trip to the Dentist
