I actually asked one of my kids if they cared if I continued to scrap or not, and it she wants me to keep doing it. It means a lot to them to be able to "reach out and touch" their childhoods anytime they want.
So, for those interested to know, I will continue my scrapbooking. Someday when I'm old and have money, I'll scan them and make slim volumes of them so the girls each have a set. Then when I am gone, they can decide what to do with the originals.
I have to admit, I feel if I quit scrapbooking, I'm abandoning their childhoods. Quite honestly, I think I take more pictures and more complete pictures because I'm thinking about how I'm going to scrap the event's pages.
And also for those who have an interest in scrapbooking and wonder about my scrapbooking "habits," I am current on our family albums. I wrote a piece on my philosophy of scrapbooking. You can click on the highlighted link to read it or find it under "At Home with Gleigh!" under the 2009 articles. It's called "Living in the Moment (while going down memory lane)".
Thanks, Tanya, for your interest and concern. I appreciate and welcome comments.
Now I need to go with my family and make some more Christmas memories!
