In my life before sewing, I was a scrapbooker. It was one of my first creative hobbies and the 13 albums I have to show for it are among my most prized possessions. However, the creative challenge sewing presents and the vast array of projects to be made has kept me intrigued from the moment I brought my machine home. I hadn’t scrapbooked a page since. My poor 3 year old’s baby book only went up to 6 months. When I found out I was pregnant with our second daughter, I made a list of all the things I’d like to make for the new baby and forced myself to add “finish Elle’s baby album” to the list. I’m beyond happy to announce that I did it! Here are some of my favorite pages:
Now I have to remain committed to making an album for Liv’s first year and then I’ll allow myself to switch to the less time intensive, but still archival, electronic scrapbooks. I must keep in mind that I need to record what a wonderful time in our lives this is and that my children need to be able to look back at pictures from their childhood … how else will they remember how all those handmade goodies I sewed for them looked in their prime?!
