So I’ve been MIA for a while now. Things are happening. Some good, some less good, but I thought I’d finally share one of my projects I “finished” a while ago and let you know I’m still alive and everything!
My mom is great. She does it all. If blogging was a thing when she was raising us, she could’ve been one of those famous mommy bloggers. Anyway, one of the things she was so sweet to do was to make photo albums for all 4 of us kids. Here’s my stack (they’re empty now, but imagine them bursting at the seams with photos).
Seven different albums from birth to high school graduation. That’s a crap load of pictures. In my attempt to downsize our things a bit, I decided to go through all of the albums, trash photos that weren’t worth toting around the rest of my life and reorganize them into new albums. I was able to downsize from seven to just two We R Memory Keepers albums.I decided to to the We R books because that’s what I chose when I started Ada’s baby book and I was happy with it, so I decided that some uniformity wouldn’t go amiss. I also like that you can choose picture sleeves as well as scrapbook sleeves. I’m not a big scrapper, but having a few of those is fun and can help highlight some of my favorite pictures or vacations. I will say, I was disappointed they don’t carry picture sleeves for the smaller pictures from when I was a kid, but that’s ok!
It’s not all done, I still need to locate and print my college pictures, but I consider it a job well done. I’m actually really happy I did it. I was fun to go through everything and see some fun pictures I don’t know that I’ve ever really seen and to remember all of the amazing vacations my dad took us on. It actually took quite a long time, but now I can more fully appreciate my mom doing it for all four of us growing up.
