Let's face it-I am not in any position to sit down and make a full on scrapbook of anything probably ever again. I have one started of my wedding but it abruptly ends with only a few honeymoon pictures with the rest tucked away in a box to be finished "when I get some time." My own mom gave me my baby book and a box of pictures and said, "maybe you will have time to finish this someday." Ya right. Memory keeping is hard. It takes time to plan, it takes time to gather supplies and it takes time to actually do and guess what...I don't have the time just like so many others. I do want to have some records of all the wonderful things there are in life however to leave for my children-both with photos and just in words. So while I am not good at, nor will I ever be good at, making a full on scrapbook for my children, I am good at (or try to be good at) creating more simple records of our lives to leave for my children and grandchildren. This is the first of a mini series of simple memory keeping ideas.
Idea #1: A holiday recipe book.
Idea #2: Super simple mini album
Idea #3: Simple Scrapbook with no embellishments
This one is the same idea just with horizontal pictures instead.
Idea #4: Fold out paper bag album
