But back to photos! I saw this post over on Here's Lookin At Me Kid (who has since moved to Making Nice in the Midwest, yay for growth!) which gave me instant inspiration. What's going on in that most is a lot more picturesque than what I came up with. On a recent trip to Michaels I picked up a cheap 4"x6" photo album, and some scrapbooking paper I really liked. I already had some photo paper from when I got a printer.
- Take picture, edit picture, print picture
- Put picture in photo album
- Write caption on pretty paper, or a sticker, or other pretty things.
- Put caption on top of picture inside the sleeve!
Super easy, perfect for me. I really liked how simple but put together this little project looks, when I see most DIY or journal ideas the first thing I think to myself is 'the first time I try this it will be a huge mess', which just means I need practice! but this little thing turned out wonderful the first try.
Since moving I've been learning to treasure my memories more and more, and how important it is to record them. I think I'll be going back through pictures I took while I was home and making albums out of those like this as well. Here's what I have so far:
|$2.50 at Michaels! Going to look on Etsy for better albums.|
|I've posted pictures from this ride before, in this post.|
|Picture was taken near Angle Pond, there are more photos here.|
|Another grab from this post.|
I am really liking a lot of the journaling activities and ideas I'm seeing, and think I may be getting into it a bit more!
I'm picking up all these hobbies while I am without work! Hopefully I'll be able to keep everything up once I star working again. :)
