To Remember and be Remembered

There are many different things a person can give someone else to remember him or her, from Frederique Constant timepieces for watch lovers to a simple handkerchief. If it's an intimate relationship, personalizing the item with a specific engraving for example is a great way to make it several times more special. But sometimes you don't have anything left, but some photos and a memory of a few phrases a person used to say. In that case the ideal thing would be to start a photo- or scrapbook.

Something to remember
Normally each family has some kind of item which belonged to a great great grandmother or grandfather and was passed on from generation to generation. Usually it's some kind of jewelry like earrings or a watch (Pulp Fiction coming into mind). Such an item tells a little bit of the family history and if you don't have one you should start this tradition now by buying a watch here for example. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, but it should be a timeless thing and nothing digital. It would also be better, if it wasn't gender bound as you never know if your great grand child is going to be a girl or a boy.

Photo- or Scrapbook instead
Of course you can start a photo- scrapbook instead of buying anything to pass on. Photobooks are perfect for any event. You can sit together with the whole family looking at pictures and little notes to remember a special day in the past and telling family stories. The only problem with those is that the more time is passing the more photo- and scrapbooks you will have to add which in a few decades will lead to a ton of paper. Through social media you can create photo albums online and send them to your friends and family, which is an easy way round.

Swimming Pool/Beach Inspired Digi kit

Smooth Sailing Page Kit
Summer Breeze
Here are just some Swimming Pool / Beach Digi Kits that you can use to scrap your summer photos. Doing summer, we always go for a vacation to hit the beach or swim at the pool and it’s  great way to bond with our family.

It’s already rainy seasons in our country but at least we can use electric swimming pool heaters to make our pools warm. While it’s a wet, wet, wet world in our country, some parts of the world is summer time already.

I still have to scrap our summer photos and these kits are just perfect.

My 14th 8x8 Photobook from Artscow

This is the  volume 2 of my Simply Jen photobook of myself. Of course, I need to make an album solely just for me so I can keep all the memories that I have. I’m sure it’s pretty cool to look at my old photos and share it to my grandkids when I’m in my senior years already.

I just love making photobook and preserving all the happy and not so happy moments in our life. IMG_0413IMG_0414
