We all do it. take a million digital photos, with the best of intentions to make the photo album ‘when i get back’… and then suddenly it’s 5 years later and the photo CDs are collecting dust in a shoebox at the back of your closet. but we still seem to avoid scrapbooking because it typically conjures up pictures of your glue-stick wiedling geriatric aunt in at her kitchen table. not really your thing. but theres a more fresh way to do it. and it doesnt involve stickers and premade journaling kits.
How to embrace the art of journaling the way our grandparents did:
* engraving rubbings.
* flower pressings
* drawings / sketches
* mini watercolor paintings
* sample collecting, etc….
