Do you scrap the good things and the not so good things? Like most of us, I tend to scrap the fun things, the things I want to remember and enjoy. Although I don't usually share them here on my blog, I scrap the difficult times too not only as a scrapbooker, but as a memory keeper.
My mom passed away last month, and being a memory keeper, I scrapped the program from her memorial service.
Embellishments were easy to pick for this, she liked flowers, the color blue, and then there's that sweet little bird. We had this thing between us that every time we would pass by a certain street/intersection in our hometown, we would try and count how may birds were sitting up on the telephone wire.
In the days since she's been gone, I still look up and count and tell her how many I see.
