I digital scrapbook a lot. Not for recording my history, or making keepsake books for my children. (Although I do end up with some of that) I do it mostly for the creative release and also for my design work with ScrapGirls. In the process of these hundreds of layouts I’ve made there are only a couple that are of me and my life. Lately as I’ve been more involved in Family History and the stories, I often wish there were stories of these amazing people that I descended from and yet there is nothing. I’m only left to imagine what they were like.
I find that I have the same desires and questions about my mom. (I hope your reading this!) Wondering what all of her history is. We’ve heard some of the stories, but there is a lot there that we don’t know as well. I want to know more. I also realize that someday my children may be saying the same thing. So I’ve decided to do scrap more about me. I going to take some time to celebrate my life and the little things that make me who I am.
So I joined Anna’s class called Who Am I? at ScrapGirls, and will be creating 20 layouts about just me. I’m hoping to accomplish them all, and possibly add to them in the hopes of creating my own story to share with my kids and their posterity.
So today’s topic was quick and easy – 10 of my favorite things. I realize I have way more than 10 favorites… but these are a few of the top ones. I also love it when a project like this can kill 2 other birds with one stone. A personal progress goal and a Family History goal that our stake has right now for everyone in the wards. Yes!
(So MOM…. I still want to learn more about you and who you are. I want some stories to pass on to my kids, and I want to hear some memories. So if you want to take some of these same topics, answer them and email them to me… I’ll even put them together for you in a book…. How much EASIER could it get! Not much. You’re always asking what to get us for Christmas…. hint hint…. The offer stands for my mother in law too. I know her sons would appreciate it!)
