(photo on cover taken by curiouser)
i used to scrapbook a lot! but i never scrapbooked with a certain order in mind, the albums are more theme-based: myself, my family, friends. my children have a scrapbook each, nice big american crafts corduroy binders, and it's a nice mix of scrapbook pages, plain photo pages and epherema.
i still keep a photo album that is loosely organized according to a timeline. it's mainly for photos that we receive from other people.
but for 2012 i started something new, and i hope to carry on with that in the next years. i didn't print out any photos (except the ones for the kids' scrapbooks) but had a photobook printed. it contains special events and holidays, but many many everyday photos as well (as you can see above i also added instagrams). i really love the look of it, and it's lovely to flip through it and see the photos - in a real book!
it took me a while to choose from the thousands of photos we had taken last year which ones to include, so this year my plan is to have a folder ready on our desktop, and regularly go through the photos we uploaded to make a first selection. this way i'm hoping it will be less work by the end of the year.
how do you, if at all, organize your family photos??
(just a sidenote: i'm not affiliated to them, but i used photobox to create my book and i'm very pleased with their service and quality!)
