scrapbook

For the past five years or so I've been keeping a scrapbook for Christmas. I found this one scrapbook pre-printed with pages to be filled in (sort of like a baby book). You can put in some pictures, the christmas card you've sent out, letters to Santa, gifts received, the weather, the menu, special moments, etc... There are poems in there and drawings, it's really neat ! The book is full now but I like it so much I started a new one without the preprinted pages though I use my old book as a guideline. I put it on display at Christmas as part of my decorations. It is so much fun to leaf through the books and commemorate on Christmasses past.

I usually fill it in in January so I won't forget anything and that wonderful Christmas feeling can last a bit longer !

Do you make similar projects ?

I'm not as up to date as you, but I am doing a Christmas album. Its just my husband and myself so I have to rely on my memories and ask relatives alot of questions. But right now I have at least 10 scrapbooks going. By the way, thank you for the card. Merry Christmas to you and your family and friends.

10 scrap books ?? Good luck head elf ! I'm single but have a large extended family.

You're very welcome for the Xmas card. Thanks likewise, I received yours too. It's a lot of fun isn't it, the card exchange !! I will definitely put some of them in my scrapbook.

I had answered a similar question about Holiday Scrapbooking sometime ago on here. I don't have just a Holiday one. I am trying to work on one I am making for my daughter (maybe a sweet 16 or graduation gift..someday). I do however think the Christmas Scrapbook is an excellent idea. Especially when you love Christmas as much as all of us member here do. It's nice to be able to reflect on the past.

I have a Christmas scrapbook, a Halloween scrapbook, an Events scrapbook, and an Everyday scrapbook.

Unfortunately I just got divorced (well...or fortunately depending on how you look at it) and now my Christmas album contains a bunch of pictures that I don't care about too terribly much. I am not getting rid of it, but I am thinking about starting a new one.

I love scrapbooking and up until recently I didn't really have many pics to scrapbook without my husband in them. Now I've got a decent amount though, so I'm getting reinvigorated about scrapbooking.

Mel! I was wondering where you had gone, sorry to hear about the divorce, but good to hear from you again.

EvilMel, love the name, and I know exactly how you feel. Been through the divorce thing myself and it has it's pros and cons depending like you said. He has my son with him so I don't have any pictures of my son past 18. But the scrapbook thing is kind of a therapy of sorts. So, the dogs have their own scrapbooks too! And I make my own holiday cards. I just have to put them in an album like it was suggested. Merry Christmas!
