I am always looking for different ways to tell stories – beyond scrapbooking. When looking back at my life, my earliest scrapbooks were these school books that my Mom would have my sister and fill out every year. I treasure that little book. It is a time capsule from my childhood. This is the one from high school.
When Matthew and I were dating we filled out half of All About Us. It is already so fun to look back on – and that was just six years ago – imagine how cool it will be in 25 years.
Over Christmas, I found the next book to help tell my story. Matthew and I were browsing at Barnes and Noble, when I found a book I immediately loved: Listography Journal: Your Life in Lists.
That day, I decided to buy a few other books, but I saved it to my Amazon Remembers (I love the Amazon app on my iphone).
This week I got it and I am so excited to start it.
Essentially, each spread is for a list like:
- List your favorite records
- List what you like to do on your day off
- List your biggest fears
- List people you’ve lived with
- List your favorite toys you played with as a child
I think this will be a great thing to take on trips and work on while I am watching television. I plan on dating my entries so that I can go back and add to the lists in the future.
It turns out there are a whole bunch of these Listography books including:
- My Listography: My Amazing Life in Lists
- Music Listography Journal
- Love Listography: Your Love Life in Lists
- Friends Listography: Our Lives in Lists
Have you ever filled out a book like Listography before? Are there any you have that you would recommend?
Update: For those of you that asked, yes they totally still make school memory books. Here are a few I found on Amazon.
- School Years: A Family Keepsake of School Memories
- School Memory Album: A Collection Of Special Memories, Photos, And Keepsakes From Kindergarten Through Sixth Grade
- School Years: Record Book: Capture and Organize Memories from Preschool through 12th Grade
