Blog: The Organized & Happy Scrapper
you don't have to scrapbook ALL your photos

When I started scrapbooking, I believed that once I started scrapbooking I would have to scrapbook ALL of my photos...or at least a representative sample of every photo-worthy event and occasion. Talk about overwhelming. And since I was creating scrapbooks for my kids, I felt a tremendous sense of obligation to record all the details of their lives, and make sure that each and every event and phase was captured on the pages of my scrapbook.
Fast forward nearly ten years, and I see things differently. I envision not only sending my children off to adult life with a few completed scrapbooks, but also with a box of un-scrapbooked photos. This is something I wish I had from my childhood:  a box of random photos that I could use in any way I please. I would love to see photos of my childhood friends, my teachers, what my school looked like, photos of me playing sports, first dances, you name it. I would use these photos to scrapbook my childhood from an adult perspective. Oooh, that would be so fun!
So...today, in honor of Halloween, be sure to focus on capturing your memories through photos. Don't worry about if you have time to scrapbook all the photos you shoot. Who knows, one of your little ghosts or goblins may turn out to be a scrapbooker one day and thank you for leaving some of the photos un-scrapbooked to record in whatever way she chooses.
Have a great Halloween!
