Lately, I’ve been thinking about the future, considering what will I be leaving behind. When I think back to my childhood, there are many gaps, I’ll be told stories about things we’d done and places we’ve been, but there is nothing documented for me to be able to get a visual of that, and it makes me kind of sad. I love learning about the past and history, I love flipping through photo books and looking at all of the old photographs and learning the story behind them, but I don’t really have that, my family didn’t document our lives, our traditions, our comings and goings, there are no photographs cataloged or strategically placed in albums, I’ve got nothing?!
Sad, but true, so I decided that it was important for me to document for my children. It is rather sad, but my greatest accomplishment this year, was finally filling an entire album. Now I have so many more pictures, that I need more albums! I love creating photo books, and designing photographs, but my most favorite treasure, is scrapbooking. It really creates “art” for your photographs, it takes a lot more time and creativity and that is something I want my children to treasure and enjoy in the future.
This photographs shows of postcards and notes and trinkets from our trip to Savannah, GA. For me it doesn’t always have to be anything specific or themed, but I love buying postcards from every place I stop, and so they will all eventually make their way into this book or into an album.
When I started this book, I began using the glue stick that came with the book, and as I review the pages, I’m noticing that the edges (I assumed I smothered in enough glue), are now raising, I’m wondering how long will these photographs stay in place. One of the ideas of this said SMASH book was that everything you need is right there in place for you to just SMASH and go, but it doesn’t help if my smashing designs are lifting at the seams, does it? So I was really excited to be introduced to Tombow Adhesive Glue. This is a permanent, acid free, adhesive glue, just perfected suited for archival projects such as my delectable Smash, and especially safe for photographs!
