I wanted to comment a bit on the primitive scrapbooking :-) I wonder how many of us have the traditional paper scrapbooks (the kind they use in primary school) kept from way back when! I know I have 4 or 5 stored away, with everything from gum wrappers, to receipts, to plastic shopping bags and love notes. I would keep everything. There's no order to my books, and things are just scotch-taped over my pages, but the memories are so wonderful!
I pulled them out a few weeks ago for my children to look at and they couldn't believe the stuff I saved. The problem now is, when I want them to toss some of their junk, they are quick to remind me that I kept stuff just like it! Haha!
I am glad that scrapbooking has evolved the way it has, but I can still appreciate my old scrapbooks. How about you?

Sisterhood...a celebration of the he{ART}

I love the to look at them and see how far I have come and then I look and wonder should I update these pages of reciepts, napkins and things. Probably not they would lose their innocence just like the times
