KISS – Scrapping
I have told you before that I was once a scrapbooker. I liked the creative process, but it was time-consuming and expensive. After Edward, I decided to cut back on my scrapping and move to an easier system (which I blogged about here).
By and large, that is my system. However, there are a few major, yearly events that warrant special attention in my mind…Halloween, Christmas and Family Day. For these, I do a full-blown scrapbook page. The idea is that when Edward is 18 he will have one scrapbook for each of these yearly occurences. But, the pages are a lot of work. It seems wasteful to have them linger in a scrapbook on a shelf for only occasional viewing. I have a solution…
Because of where these hang in our house, it was impossible to get a picture of all 3, but trust me – Halloween is up there above Christmas hanging on the wall. I found these 12×12 frames at a local scrapbook store. I bought one for each of the yearly events and hung them one on top of the other. Now, I scrap each event and we get to enjoy the memories every time we walk past them. When the next Halloween or Christmas or Family Day roles around, I take last year’s page out of the frame, put it in the album and replace it with the new version. Easy as can be!
