A Gift of Memories

My mother was a 'picture-taker', I'm a 'picture-taker', and my daughter is a 'picture-taker' so I have LOTS of pictures.  I recently decided to organize and begin putting them into albums for my grandchildren to enjoy while I'm still around.

Christmas is the perfect time to give the first album, and it will go to my granddaughter, Tiffany.  Since this is a time-consuming project, the albums will be on-going, and spread out over several volumes.  Volume #1 will be Tiffany's birth [July 1991] through her first Christmas.  She is expecting her second daughter this coming March, so I thought it would be fun for her to have an album of her own baby pictures.  

I'm half-way through volume #1, and racing with the clock.  It's an after work/evening project since I'm working Monday thru Friday.  I'm a novice scrapbooker with limited equipment, so this album isn't fancy, but I think Tiffany will like it none-the-less.  I'm hoping she doesn't read this post!!

What Christmas projects are you working on?  I almost lost my 'Christmas Spirit' when I had to stand in a l-o-n-g line for one hour at JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts over the weekend to get scrapbooking supplies.  They only had two cashiers working to accommodate a wrap-around line that extended almost to the back of the store.  Grrrrrr!!!  Hopefully I've got all the supplies I need and won't have to return until after the holidays.

  1. My mother and I were both picture takers We would take extra pictures because, with film, you never knew what picture you had until the film was developed. Then we would order duplicates when we sent our film in for development so we could exchange with each other. Now that I have inherited her boxes of photos, added to my boxes of photos, I have at least 4 copies of every picture we took! It is an ongoing project to sort photos.
