Tips for Making the Quickest Scrapbook Ever

This weekend Elias had his end-of-season soccer party.

I offered earlier last week to put together a little photo book for the coach. Just something simple, with a few photos of her coaching + some words.

And then, I forgot about it until about 3 hours before the party. I quickly sent some photos to Walgreens, picked them up and then whipped together a photo book in less than 15 minutes.

It turned our darling and the coach and all the team parents loved it.

I made a video of the process, as well as me sharing a few tips for putting together a quick scrapbook. (My apologies that I am wearing no make-up – ha! Just sharing life with you as it happens!)

I hope this encourages you that creating a photo book does not have to be fancy. Photos + words are all it takes to let someone know that you care, or even just to document your own family’s story.

Note: I have been working hard on my YouTube channel – check it out. I’m really excited about all the new and organized content. While you’re there, be sure to subscribe.

I love that little trimmer. I have never found a more sturdy option in that size. It’s perfect when I am just cutting 4×6 photos.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading this semester for my graduate studies and have found one of my research interests to be motherhood and the discourse that surrounds motherhood. Anyway, I so appreciate that you filmed the video without make-up, but wondered why you needed to apologize for this fact? I recall your earlier post about our “pinterest perfect world”, but then wonder when we make apologies for not being “perfect” (this situation not having applied make-up) if we’re sending the message that it’s really not okay to show our imperfections? As a working mama (and going to grad school), I often struggle with showing my imperfections to the world. How does one do this in a way that shows the grace that we live in each day, as well as wanting to be viewed as a competent and intelligent woman? Random comment/thoughts, I know. My reading this semester has just really gotten me interested in this topic and I’ve begun observing the power discourse has in our lives as women and mothers.

I didn’t “need” to apologize, but normally I take the time to be “camera-ready”. Since I didn’t do that for this video, I guess I felt I should acknowledge that. The fact that I DID make/post the video anyway to me says, hey, it’s okay to show our imperfections.

This is a discourse that we women do need to continue to have. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I completely agree and I’m so glad that you did post! I wish more women would post those “real” moments. I was just curious to your thought process; again, I’m learning and observing, so I continue to be fascinated by the choices we all make each day. Thanks for your quick reply & thanks for the dialogue!

Small quantity of moisture allows fast drying of carpet.
There is an Allergen formula, a dog stain and odor formula, odor control formula, deep cleaning
formula, natural orange formula and many others. At the same time frame, experienced Bristol carpet cleaners stake care in using only green products.
