Have You Thought About Scrapping Your Special Things?
I am sure you, like most of us have many things in your home, each of which has its own story to tell – the inherited jewellery, bits of furniture, your own engagement ring, books………… once you start to think of it, you will probably find that you have a whole list. How sad it would be if the story were lost, and it is amazing just how fast this can and does happen.
First thing to do, it to take a tour of your home, what have you found? Hopefully, if you are looking with scrappers eyes you will find enough in one room to keep you busy for a while! Ask your family too, I was surprised when my daughter told me she had not a clue about the beautiful embroidered samplers we have hanging in our entrance hall. I had assumed that she knew all about them…………… see what I mean?
This kind of project starts with research - get yourself a notebook, maybe devote a page to each item, and here, jot down answers to questions you can ask yourself, others family members, the original owner. You won’t have it all at once, but don’t panic, just get started, and build up the information gradually as you uncover it.
Hopefully you are excited to get started, so start
out with the things you do know the answers to, things like -
Once you have exhausted all these ideas its time to move on to those which probably take more research - inherited things – a few thoughts to help fill your page with information -
Once you have a collection together set yourself up to photograph them - a few thoughts:
Once you have your photos, I would put them into a folder named “special things” or something equally explanatory and you are ready to begin!
I have a kit called “Special Things” which works very well for pages like this. I also have an Instant Album – Special Things Instant Album, but of course any kit you have or fancy in the store could be used equally well.
Good luck with your album, I look forward to seeing and enjoying many of your special things!
