Smash Book Review #2
Just two weeks after I bought the thing and did my first entry we had to quickly clean out our "junk room" to make room for a baby. When I say quickly, I mean 12 hours. So...I'm still sorting through that junk little by little and come across all these things that I just can't part with but I have nothing I can do with them other than sitting in a box. That is until the Smash Book popped into my head! So far I've been able to preserve the memories of concert tickets that have no photos to go with, my Dad's pay stub from the late 60's, and doodles my husband did at work. Really lots of things.
I've also started a book of memories for me to keep on the kids. This has silly photos of them, little things I've crafted to decorate their Easter Baskets, and odds and ends of pre-school projects that melt my heart. When I can share their names and photos I'll post them as well because those pages ROCK!
Bottom line is even though my book hasn't grown as much as I wanted in a year I still love it. It was the only kind of memory keeping I had time for as I learned how to be a Mom. It also saved me from tossing or maybe boxing up memories once again.
