Here's a project I'd hoped to finish on vacation.
A big board book for Lucy, about our annual vacation.
I'd packed the blank book, glue, and double-sided tape,
bought new markers...
gathered souvenirs throughout the week...
and found a place where I could send my photos for next-day pick-up.
Their machine was down (after an hour and a half choosing and uploading and registering...).
So it didn't happen on vacation.
But I was able to get to it last night, and Lucy loves it all the same.
I get my blank board books here (I have no connection to this company, just love some of their products).
I am not a scrapbooker (as I'm sure you can see). What I am is a teller of the stories of children's lives. Lucy loves to hear her days told back to her. I designed this book around the stories I thought would stand out most to her about our trip (tossing a seagull feather into flowing water and watching mama run to bring it back, collecting treasures, watching seagulls smash mussels on the rocks, staying in a cottage...). I envision reading it again and again now, to revisit the stories, and then reading it again and again next year, in preparation for that year's trip. My best review would be her demand for "more!"
