Once upon a time…I was an avid scrapbooker who attended crop nights and expos, shopped at the local scrapbook store, and created beautiful masterpieces on paper.
Then, I had kids.
I still love the hobby…and especially the finished product.
BUT scrapbooking takes time. It creates a mess and it requires a certain precision and focus that is difficult to attain in the infant/toddler stage of life.
I’m trying to figure out how to get “caught up” with my albums. It really would be nice to have some way of chronicling our daughters’ lives – recording their milestones, their funny sayings, their favorites, and their friends.
We have hundreds of photos saved on our computer (which is nice…), but I’d like to pass something down to my daughters that is more meaningful and organized than a flash drive full of pictures.
All that said, I’m asking for your advice and any tips you have:
- How do you fit scrapbooking in?
- Have you found another “way” to record memories that is less time-consuming?
- Should I give up scrapbooking altogether and make slideshows/collages/framed art instead?
