There are 3 parts of family memory keeping that are part of the crafting/scrapbooking world. First is Living History, what is happening now, the trip to the zoo, last years family reunion etc. Second, memories from days gone by, our ancestors, where they came from and how their experiences helped to shape us into who we are today, and finally staying in touch with the family that we have now, but don't see as often. I would like to spend a little time each week on all 3 of these.
I tend to get stressed a little too easily, so this is my reminder to keep smiling, it is in HUGE letters on my bedroom wall, DH thinks that maybe I've finally lost it, but I love it. Every time I wake up in the morning I remember to smile!
