Preserving Memories

Scrapbooking can be a great way for friends and family to get together, reminisce and preserve memories. ‘Enjoyable for you, and something you can pass on for many generations to come.

The definition of scrapbooking: The creative art of taking books with blank pages and adding photos, memorabilia, journaling, and embellishments. The primary purpose of scrapbooking is to preserve memories for future generations, but a secondary purpose often is to exercise your creativity as you display your memories in a scrapbook.

I scrapbook often and especially appreciated it when I was in bed for several weeks after surgery. Looking through all of the albums not only gave me something to do but the opportunity to enjoy my work and really embrace all of the wonderful people and events in my life.

I conduct a monthly scrapbooking event at the assisted living facility where my mother lives. It is open to her and anyone else who wants to join us. It has been something they really look forward to each month.
