WHY I Scrapbook

Today is the last day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) as you know I have been posting everyday this month. I am very proud of myself for completing this challenge, which it was a challenge to keep up with a post everyday!

I wanted to first say HAPPY HALLOWEEN  to all of my readers and wish you a wonderful and safe Halloween night. To the people that were affected by hurricane Sandy on the East Coast I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

Since today is the last day of the UBC, I decided I would share with you my WHY. What I mean about my WHY is WHY I scrapbook. I started this business because I am passionate about scrapbooking. I have never shared with you why I am passionate about scrapbooking. My WHY is because I want to remember the past.

That is the quick and easy answer to my WHY but in reality my WHY is a lot deeper than that. I have a life that is filled with monotonous daily tasks that are associated with being an adult. I want to remember all the events that have happened in my life that have brought me joy and happiness. I also want to remember the trying times in my life.

For these reasons I scrapbook. I document my life, my children’s lives and the lives of the people who come in and out of my life. Remember some people come into your life only for a season and some might even stay for a few seasons and then you have a few people who just might stay in your life for a lifetime but if you don’t document these people you might not remember them.

I believe that everyone that crosses my path is put into my life for a reason and I for one would like to remember that person that was in my life for that season or seasons.

There are events and things that you do on an everyday basis but if you don’t document these things there is a chance that you will be 80 years old and won’t remember them at all. As well as I would like to leave something for my children so that they can go back and look and remember their childhood.

I only have about 4 pictures of myself as a child. I want more for my children I want them to be able to open an album and read the stories that I wrote about them and my outlook on their wonderful personalities.

This is my WHY. WHY I scrapbook and WHY I have a passion and a desire to teach other people how to scrapbook. I believe that everyone should  remember their lives, document their lives and share their stories so that others can remember them!

  1. Wonderful, WONDERFUL, WOOONDERFUL!!! I love that you shared this. The why IS important!! Otherwise we are just putting time and money into a hobby, not preserving the memories of a lifetime!! When my Grampa past away at 96 I had 3 completed scrapbooks. I have about 2 more to go. But they are now irreplaceable memories that I will not forget when I am old. Thank you for sharing this :)

    • Thank you Michele, it truly is the most important factor that goes into scrapbooking. I really enjoy preserving the memories of my family and friends into an album. I see no point in taking pictures if you aren’t going to do anything with them. My kids will have these albums and when they get older they will get to see how much I loved and cherished them. That is one of my goals is that my memories will be a part of my kids memories.
