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.
My sister and I used to do by the page challenges, when I was going through a particularly challenging time in my life I would be having a terrible day, too much thinking etc... and my sister would call me and say grab your ???? cartridge, look on page ??? we have 1 hour, go! Believe it or not those challenges got me through many a day I thought I wouldn't make it through, so when I came across the MAG challenge, I just couldn't resist. Also, I figured I could say thanks to my sister, for dropping everything to do challenges with me anytime I needed to be distracted.
