Get Ready for Cyber Monday

The Thanksgiving turkey may be packed away in the fridge, but that doesn’t mean the celebrating isn’t over. This coming Monday, at sites across the web, you’ll be able to take advantage of fabulous deals and sales that can only spell out one thing: you’ll be well on your way to completing your holiday shopping list – that’s really something to celebrate! Once you’ve saved on a new camera and maybe even a photo printer, be sure that you stop by to stock up on some fabulous scrapbooks, photo albums, and scrapbooking supplies.

Not only will you be able to use all of these things to create fabulous gifts just in the time for the holidays, but you’ll also be able to give yourself something fun to do on those snowy days up ahead! From creating holiday scrapbooks to building up fun collages that can be given as gifts, there’s going to be plenty to do for the holidays – but make sure that you get a head start by shopping the Cyber Monday deals at!

Hunting Scrapbooks: Perfect for Any Sportsman

In many states around the country, hunting season is already in full swing. While most hunters bring along a camera to capture those beautiful, peaceful moments in the woods, there’s still a chance that you may have forgotten what happens to those photos once their taken. Sometimes they get uploaded onto a computer, or on the rare occasion when you get a great catch, they get printed out and framed. Is that really the best way to celebrate those moments?

If you or someone you care about is a diehard hunter or fisherman, remember that you can really save and do something special with those photos. This fall, instead of agonizing over finding the right frame for that 10 point buck, look instead to take those photos and turn them into a hunting scrapbook. Your sportsman will be thrilled with the chance to see his favorite catches in a beautiful scrapbook, plus, he’ll think it’s a thoughtful gift that he’ll always want to add to!

Start out by choosing a handsome camo or leather scrapbook and then start filling it up with photos of each and every hunting trip. Write in captions about the experience. Add natural touches like dried leaves or other outdoor-inspired embellishments. In no time, you’ll have a thoughtful gift to commemorate hunting season. Happy hunting and happy scrapbooking!

The Joys of Scrapbooking

Whether you’re already on the road to being a professional scrapbooker, or you are looking to dive into this fun and exciting activity for the first time, the fall and winter months are the best time to pursue your interest in scrapbooking. As the temperatures get colder and you find that the comfort of staying indoors is just what you need, putting together a scrapbook is the perfect pastime.

Not sure where to begin? Think of throwing a scrapbooking party with your friends to learn new techniques and to discover tips and tricks – a great takeaway for those who are already active scrapbookers. Share your albums with others and reminisce about moments past and consider those to come. Gather those photos you’ve been storing in a box under your bed and let those become inspiration as you build an album to show off those memories with others.

So enjoy the time indoors as you consider the fun you can have with this new hobby!

Thanksgiving is a Time for Family

November is here – can you believe it? If you’re like most people, you’re probably just starting to gear up for the holiday season. Pretty soon, Thanksgiving will be here in full swing and you’ve got to be prepared – especially if you’re planning on having a Turkey Day celebration in your home. If you’re planning to play host on that special day, be sure that you don’t forget about what’s really important in between trussing the turkey and trying to serve up enough cranberry sauce: family.

The holidays, and Thanksgiving especially, are a time to spend with family. So as you begin to put together your plans for the perfect Thanksgiving celebration, remember to take some time to really entertain and engage with your guests. Spend some time outside of the kitchen looking through old photo albums and scrapbooks or watch home movies instead of the game on TV. The important thing is that you just take time to cherish what’s important. Let you family know how much you care this Thanksgiving. After all, they are your best blessing!
