Tips From The Pros

Preserving Memories

Why do you scrapbook? There are so many answers to this question, but let me share with you some of the reasons why I scrapbook.

I like to scrapbook as a creative outlet. I enjoy the downtime to unwind from everyday life. I love the awe I feel when I finish a layout and say, "Wow! I created that!" I love feeling that I, too, can add art to the world. But the biggest reason I scrapbook is to preserve my family's memories in a creative way.

People have always told me to enjoy my kids because they grow up too fast. As my oldest is approaching his ninth birthday, I wonder where the time has gone. And I look at my youngest, who is three, and I want to put him in a bottle and keep him this way forever. Of course, I can't keep them little forever, but I can preserve our memories.

Children say the silliest things, and I can't remember everything they say. I try to write them down, but I'm not consistent. The other day I was trying to teach my three-year-old about his five senses. I was curious to know what he thought already knew about the subject, so I quizzed him first, and I had to hold back the giggles at his answers. I knew this was a moment I had to capture and preserve in my time capsule of memories. And so I turned to my scrapbooking supplies and grabbed a favorite photo of my son and preserved away - in a creative fashion, of course.

Talk with your children and notice what funny things they say. Preserve your memories and share them in the Gallery. We can't keep them young forever, but we can enjoy their innocence together.
