Who knew scrapbooking could be this therapeutic?
I started this mini with Basic Grey Stella Ruby papers, because I've been hoarding them for so long, and I love them. It was time to use them. I decided to just start cutting and pasting,
And then sewing came naturally, since these papers are made based on sewing patterns.
As I sat there, looking at my stitched papers, thinking what content to put on them, I remembered my (deceased) grandparents' pictures, and knew this album was made for them.
A place to hold stories, memories,
Birthday cards and letters and even CDs of family movies:
This small album holds so many pictures, stories and memories, and I'm happy to have them all saved in my personal way,
But what was even more special to me was the process. I started off just choosing pretty paper, and from there on I was swept by thoughts, reminiscing, sifting through old (dusty!) documents and letters and birthday cards (I had received from my grandparents), some from over 30 years ago.
