scrapbooking

Something about having a baby, makes me feel the need to document *everything*. I write down, or take pictures of everything that i think it would have been neat to know about my childhood.

I took prints of his hands and feet, and framed them for his wall. I take a picture of him doing anything new (I caught his first smile on camera.. or at least, his first that we saw) or interesting. I keep track of how big he is.. height and weight. and what better way to document all of this than a scrapbook??! so, I started scrapbooking, and I see now how this particular hobby could take up all of one's time.

I have been scrapbooking for all of two weeks, and already I have two bins and a shelf full of supplies. I planned on doing a page a month for a "baby book" for Des, and now I have started two other books as well.

If I'm not careful, I'll use up my whole craft area with scrapbooking supplies.

I hope you have more fun than you think you will. Scrapbooking will own you. Until you have a second kid, and then you'll never do it again, and they'll be mad at you.

(Btw - your new design is a little hard to read.)

changed the body font, that better?

Much. It looks bad on my iPad- apparently safari is not blogger compatible and the body text goes over the side images - not bad on the PC. But that font was just
really hard to read.
