Confession: Coming out of the closet by looking inside. YEARS of photographs in disarray are sharing closet shelves with various games and frames!
Games, frames and photographs! I open those closet doors and instantly feel anxious, overwhelmed and somewhat guilty! I do NOT want to scrapbook! NO! I won't! I can't! I DO NOT WANT TO! NO! It is NOT Thearaputic! (Hence the guilt!) What's that about? I think it came with the first scrapbook party I ever went to. It was designed to educate us, AND it was designed to sell lots of groovy scrapbooks, tools and supplies! I did go home and carefully pull or cut away my childhood photos from those disastrous magnetic pages and whatever pages those are with sticky backgrounds. Oh the guilt of wrecking a work my Mom's hands lovingly did! How could she have known that those magnetic pages were works of the Evil one?! But the guilt of having so many more that have NOT been organized! Some folks just don't know how to Party! But the party also frightened me when I looked at all the coolest scrapbook pages ever and realized I don't want to do it! I don't want to buy the supplies, go to scrap booking marathon parties or sit for hours cutting, pasting, designing, fancy cutting and arranging millions of photos resting in various boxes (yes, even shoe boxes), envelopes, photo packs and...My photos were in DANGER! I was now responsible for the truth I knew. I had to DO SOMETHING, but WHAT!?
1. Motivation to care. (I tell our daughters they can figure it out when I'm Gone...)
2. Another option besides scrap booking. (I can barely say the word!)
3. I need so much help, I don't even know what I need!!!
I haven't even mentioned my transition to digital camera where I have so MANY files and folders stored on my computer, but I don't want to get them developed because if I do I'll have even more photographs! HELP! Anybody...?
