Underneath the bed in my spare bedroom are two giant bins filled with craft supplies. I’d say about half of those supplies are for scrapbooking. But I have yet to make a scrapbook. In fact, my attempts to make scrapbooks are so non-existent that I barely even take pictures anymore because I know I really won’t do too much with them, other than store them on my computer.
With my upcoming honeymoon just a couple of months away, I definitely want to break this habit. Which is why this travel box DIY/scrapbook alternative in the March issue of Martha Stewart is right up my alley. All you have to do is make a box, put the location of your travels on the side and then fill it with all of your vacation goodies. You can organize it however you please – but it’s quick and meaningful, without all of the hassle of cutting and pasting and adding stickers. Which I love, don’t get me wrong, I just never get to it!
This is perfect for me because while I love to save ticket stubs and all that, not only do I not scrapbook them, I really don’t even take them out of my purse until I clean it out six months later.
What do you think of these travel boxes? Are you a lazy memento-keeper like me or are you good at the scrapbooking?
