New Scrapbook Pages
My daughter, Heather, is putting together a scrapbook for me of my writing journey. I've posted about it Here and Here.
A couple weeks ago, Heather added some scrapbooks pages to my author scrapbook. This first page is the article that appeared in my church newsletter, October 2008. The oval on the upper left reads "Dare to believe in the reality of your dreams." The paper is dark brown with some lady-slipper type flowers in the lower left corner.
This page with the purple background is from the December 13th, 2008 Rochester Post Bulletin newspaper. They did an article on NaNoWriMo. There are stickers that look like typewriter keys, and the orange note has a special meaning.
It says "Happy NaNoing. Love you, Your Sweetie." My husband slipped it into my closed laptop just before he went to bed one night, knowing I was going to be up and away early the next morning to the library to work. Imagine my surprise when I opened the laptop and found his note. I've got such a supportive husband. He even cheers me on when I do something off the wall like NaNo.
This final spread is from the June 2009 edition of Guideposts magazine. The article is entitled It Takes a Family, and is about my first weeks as a diabetic. Heather included basketball stickers, the photographer's business card, and the entire article, along with all the photos and the cover.
So, how are you archiving your writing journey? Are you a scrapbook-er? Are you like me and love the pages, but don't feel you have much vision for scrapbooking?
