This is the 13th day in a series: 31 Days of Memory Keeping. Check out all the posts here.
Did you hear that more and more schools are no longer teaching cursive? I think that is so sad.
As I strive to document my family’s stories and memories, I try to incorporate handwriting whenever possible.
My memory keeping posts for the past few days have all been handwritten, journaling projects.
I also am a big believer in incorporating handwriting into my scrapbooking. I rarely, if ever, use a printer to type my journaling. I also sometimes slip in notes from Matthew and Elias’s coloring. The work of their hands is an important part of our family’s story.
My Project Life albums include the daily journaling cards that I write on. While I have trouble keeping up with the cards, I know that they are a very important element to the album.
Next week I will be talking about perserving cards and letters. These items are extra special to me because they contain handwriting from a loved on.
Today, write something! Your handwriting is a legacy of love.
And if you haven’t done so, be sure to order your free journal from Paper Coterie!
