Old Business On The Agenda
I have been taking care of some old business this week. When the scrapbooking craze hit these many years ago I jumped on the bandwagon. What a great idea to get your old photos out of those awful "magnetic" albums, add captions and stories and mount them properly. So I took them all out of the albums and sorted them into photo boxes, including my wedding pictures.
Okay, that step took up the whole first year of scrapbooking. As I do... I made a whole bunch of work for myself. It is still a good idea, I just didn't realize the bite I bit off. Hmm. That is another common theme in my life.
Well, I was determined that this year I would finally get my wedding photos out of that box and back into an album and I am making good progress. Working on my wedding album when I have been married over 36 years. Go figure.
Proof that I HAVE made progress over the years. No, I don't have stacks of lovely finished albums but I do have stacks of lovely (and some not so much) finished pages. This doesn't include the six family genealogy albums.
Speaking of genealogy... they will be releasing the 1940 census in April. My grandmother will be 102 this month and this means I can now find her all the way up until she is 30 years old. It is a little unsettling to realize you can out-live privacy policies. This is also the first year I will find my parents in the census, although they are both gone now.
Okay, back to work. These pages will not make themselves. Words to the wise: do not wait until your children are teenagers to start organizing your photos. I had to ask them to help me figure out which one of them was in some of the pictures - LOL!
