There was a time when I was a serious scrap booker. I bought every possible gadget, pen, paper, sticker, and computer design software. Then my daughter, Tessa, gave me subscriptions to scrapbook magazines. I was in heaven. I poured over all the design ideas and kept buying all the latest and greatest gadgets – and of course I kept creating wonderful scrapbooks.
Then about eight years ago I quit. I’ve kept taking pictures. Many pictures! But the scrapbooking juices stopped flowing.
Today I took one look at the bookshelf piled high with magazines and decided it was time to get rid of them. The problem is that they really do have a lot of good advice and information. What to do….
The simple answer was to go through the magazines and remove anything of interest and throw all of the useless advertising away.
About 30 magazines have been reduced to this thin stack, which will be filed by categories.
I’m looking forward to catching up on all the memories as I get back into scrap booking the simple way – with lots of journaling. It will be a walk down memory lane backtracking eight years. And of course, I’m going to have to do something with the over 90 years of family photos I have been scanning. Just what I needed – another project!
