Treasured: journal card/wall art

I knew as soon as I saw Liz’s freebie (downloadable until Oct 5 here) that I wanted to print it out as a 6×8 and put it in my pocket scrapbook with lots of little memorabilia on the corresponding page. But first, I needed to hang it on my wall to let it soak in a bit. These words ring so true to me. They actually brought a tear to my eye, because they’re so true to my life.

Recently, we moved a few miles away from home to a new home. While I appreciate the idea of getting rid of things that you’ve been holding on to for so long but you’re not using (my daughter’s toys) getting rid of scrapbooking supplies is a whole other story, because…. we will use it, eventually right?? Well, I am proud to announce that I got rid of so much stuff, even scrapbooking wise! It felt good. I still have over 20+ albums full of scrapbooking pages- and those are the real treasures.

While I know to others who may not document like I do, ‘Wow she’s got a lot of stuff!’ (SO MANY BOXES MOVED OF MEMORABILIA AND PHOTOS!) They are my treasures. Three of my children are nearly adult aged now. I cling to their kindergarten artwork. That amazing trip to NY with my husband, I cling to those subway tickets. Those photos of my babies, the photos of my bad outfits and funny furniture choices… they are my treasures.

Grab Liz’s freebie to you. I can’t wait to share with you what I end up doing with mine once I tuck it away in my book. But for now, it’s on my wall for all to read, as if they didn’t know that our history is my treasure.
