Procrastination or Organization to Reminisce

I like to call it organization, while others may look at it as procrastination.  I recently took my scrapbook pages and began to compile them into catagories and place them in large binders under headers.   While this might seem like a simple task, it turned into an afternoon of memories.  I found pages, I had scrapbooked with pictures I forgot about.  My grandbabies have sure grown, and so has my skill level in scrapbooking.  Thank goodness!

      ORGANIZATION:  Finding a place for everything without stopping to reminisce!

Enjoy and be So Scrappy,

Don't Forget the Camera!

Getting ready to celebrate my father-in-laws Surprise 80th birthday party, we are gathering pictures. Now, now I am the family photographer. Everyone laughs at me because no matter the occasion, I have the camera. However, that apparently was not the case back in the day. Trying to find those unique pics, of everyday events are few and hard to come by. Even though I have boxes of them. Now I have those posed pic, that everyone has, but as I said, we all have them. Boxes and Boxes of them! In this blog, my lesson I have learned and I hope that we all do, is: use the camera, cell phone, whatever your choice is and get in the picture. Get those candid shots. Get the everyday moments. Don't wait until your parents are in their 70's & 80's to finally decide to take pics of them with you. Do it early and frequently and with all members of your family. Individual pics the fun moments.
