Remember when scrapbooking first became really popular?

I do.  I was about 25 years old and a new bride.  You should see how I’ve improved since those first albums (you KNOW what I’m talking about).  They weren’t even kept with the rest of my albums, they’re that EMBARRASSING!  The only problem of having them stored in a separate place is, if there’s ever a house fire, my husband wouldn’t know where to find them so he could throw them out the window to safety.  I can hear myself now, “The old albums honey, GET THE OLD ALBUMS…YOU KNOW, THE ONES I STORE UNDER THE KITCHEN  SINK IN THE BACK BEHIND THE AJAX AND OLD DISH TOWELS!”  But, I recently realized that  there really isn’t anything to be embarrassed about, we all had to start somewhere.  And as corny as those first pages are, they are priceless.  So, I finally came to realize that these albums need to be moved to a place of pride — right next to my daughter’s first year.   Catch a glimpse of my first page EVER, just do me a favor and peek at your own risk.  What does your first page look like?  

Circa 1994


About scrapbookeasy

Thank you for visiting my blog! Here's a little about me: I am now a stay-at-home mom courtesy of a little epidemic called "A Bad Economy." It was quite a blessing in disguise because all this new-found free time gave me the opportunity to start an online scrapbooking supply business (you can find us at We are geared toward the busy scrapper and offer easy to use products and kits -- sorry, shameless plug). Scrapbooking is a craft I found, jumped into and became an addict of almost 20 years ago. I love history, so what better way to preserve my own history through this wonderful craft, right? I love to share new things that I learned, discovered or think about with everyone so enjoy!

  1. You have inspired me! I am going to go and dig out my old albums! So they are a little goofy…who cares. I remember creating them and they bring me back……
