The History Keepers ::: The Quote Book
Did that first little bit scare you? Worried I am going to tell you that you MUST become an excellent scrapbooker RIGHTNOW or forever hold your peace as your family falls apart because there is no written history of them? Well, no darling, that is NOT what I am saying. Hold your horses a bit and let me walk you through a few easier ways to capture your family history. Today's project IS a scrapbook so to speak, but it is easier than you might think and not as "scrappy" as most.
You see, I'm not the typical scrapbooker. I am not talented enough or patient enough to spend hours cutting, assembling and arranging a litany of small pieces to make a true scrapbook. I am, however, a collector of memories, and I love having them all in one spot. My friends must have been similar in scrapbooking sentiments too, because in high school we had a group "quotebook." It wasn't pretty and it wasn't well put together, but we totally treasured it. We had that binder everywhere and every time someone said something hilarious, we would write it down. Different colored pens and pencils, lunch spills on the papers, no pictures -- just quotes.
