Something to Think About… Scrapbooking

I think scrapbooking is great.  I think it’s a terrific way to preserve memories and write your family’s story book.  Notice, I said write.  Without journaling, or writing about what was going on, or your thoughts, or at least the who what where when why and how, they’re just pictures in a book.  Now don’t get me wrong, the pictures are wonderful reminders of the good times you’ve had.  They are wonderful snapshots of your life.  I just don’t think they’re enough.  I think that’s why we started scrapbooking to begin with, at least it was one of the reasons I started.

In addition to the things above, I love to add scriptures from the Bible to my pages whenever I can find something that fits.  I think it reminds us and those who will read it in our future of our dedication to God’s Word.  Who knows?  Perhaps a child or grandchild will see the scriptures and be drawn to the Word and the Lord by reading what we’ve written. 

I encourage you to write scriptures, captions, and  notes to your family in your own handwriting.  No, you may not think your writing is pretty;  but, let me tell you.  My mother died several years ago, and anything that has her handwriting on it is absolutely precious to me.  I don’t have much.  I want to make sure that my children have written reminders of my love for their father, our family, our Lord, and for each of them.

  1. Hi Laura!

    I’m glad you stop by my blog! Thanks for the advice on the colors. I lightened the blue and I think it’s easier to read now.

    Hugs,

  2. I loved doing scrap booking as well. When my ex husband put me out of our home I was not allowed to take anything, not even a photograph, so the few photographs that I have of my five children are very precious to me. I wanted to make them even more special and so I have scrapbooked them. I join with you in highly recommending doing so and love the idea of adding scriptures to them!

  4. I agree with you – I love to see the handwriting of my ancestors – right now we are having several old letters translated from German and Italian and even though I don’t understand the words it is neat to look at the handwriting and know that my great-grandmother wrote some of those letters!
