There are so many ways to be a memory keeper. I happen to enjoy scrapbooking. As a scrapbooker, I enjoy pairing photos with words using pretty paper and embellishments. The physical process of rifling through my stash of goodies is probably one of my favorite parts of being a creative. The only time it's hard, is when I've been over-consuming rather than creating and the process can go from fun to overwhelming....more
