Life is full of moments that are so joyful and satisfying. These moments are great, and are to be treasured and remembered forever. Scrapbooks help us make these moments memories – the times that help balance the scales for the less than wonderful days we have from time to time.
A favorite quote of mine reads, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” Bearing this in mind can help you live a better, more fulfilled existence.
Telling yourself a story through pictures and other pieces of the past, or giving yourself some time to sit and complete a project, can be a very therapeutic, enriching exercise. Does this sound like a familiar activity? It should – it’s what we do when we scrapbook! The benefits of scrapbooking are more than just something that will keep our minds and hands busy. Scrapbooking is an outlet that can help us forget a day that just didn’t go so well by remembering the times that were just right!
In the end, scrapbooking is a way to remind ourselves that we’ve got the proof in pictures, quotes, and newspaper clippings that we are making the most of our time, love and life!
