Why we should Scrapbook Ourselves - additional

I have posted parts one and two of “Why we should Scrapbook Ourselves” so far and I am working on Part 3 as we speak! However, on this subject, I share with you part of a recent post from the “Cooking with Paper Pesto” blog.


How about an album about you?

This is often one of the most difficult subjects for women to scrap about, but what a wonderful legacy to leave your children and future generations – a glimpse into what makes you the person you are.

If you can’t quite manage the deep and meaningful stuff e.g.

· What are the important values in your life?
· What are the lessons your parents taught you that you’ve never forgotten?
· What are your dreams for the future?
· Who are the most influential people in your life?
· What were the best moments of your life to date?
· Who are you – content, happy, sad, a worrier, carefree, restless, angry, creative….?
· What do you really, really like about yourself?
· How has your personality changed in the past 10 years?

Then what about some completely “frivolous” topics, that may actually say more about you than you think e.g.

· The contents of your purse,
· What did you buy this week?
· If you could be on a reality TV show, which one would you choose and why?
· What’s your housework strategy?
· What are the favourite things in your home and why?
· What do you do for fun?
· If you were stranded on a desert island who and what would you want with you?


So there are some more ideas, deep and meaningful or just fun, whichever you choose, your offspring will appreciate the insight into your nature. And you maybe will find a little bit of you again too!!
