Why Do I Scrapbook?

As I'm still "recuperating", I thought I'd just share with you some random thoughts... most of which (if not all) are NOT mine.

I scrapbook because:

"I find out more and more every day how important it is for people to share their memories." (Mr. Rogers)

"The existence of forgetting has never been proved:  We only know that some things don't come to mind when we want them." (Friedrich Nietzsche)

"She glances at the photo, and the pilot light of memory flickers in her eyes." (Frank Deford)

"Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph.  Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you."  (Simon & Garfunkel)

"My grandmother made me a scrapbook because I was once too young to remember; I am making scrapbooks for my family because one day I may be too old to remember." (Author Unknown)

I may have shared this one before, but it's a favorite of mine:

"Keep some souvenirs of your past, or how will you ever prove it wasn't all a dream?" (Ashleigh Brilliant)

"A picture is poem without words." (Confucius )
To which I'd like to add, "I scrapbook to tell the story" (Kai)

And last, but not least (nor will it be the absolute end of sharing these thoughts now and again):

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun." (Mary Lou Cook)

I hope your day is filled with wonderful memories in the making!  (And there's still time to enter this giveaway)


  1. I LOVE this! It really spoke to me today!

  2. What a super, super collection of quotations! You could turn them into a minibook maybe?

  3. Great quotes that support scrapbooking. Thanks for the inspiration. Found you through BFS.


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
