One of the things that I try to make time to do every day is check out my Facebook page. Admittedly I don’t post very often, but I like to keep up with my friends and know what’s going on in their lives.
Today, one of my friends posted about some of comical things her 4-year old says. In particular, she told about a funny thing he wished for as he was blowing on a dandelion as they walked to the park.
Besides reminding me that there are places out there that are warm and green (here in the Midwest, I can see the snow coming down outside from my desk chair), it made me think about how often we DON’T think to scrapbook about the little moments in our lives, the everyday, daily, ordinary moments that make up such a big part of our lives and that really do, in hindsight, pass so quickly and are gone.
Do you only (photograph and) scrapbook the big events – the graduations and weddings, the new babies and the school dance? If so, here’s a reminder that the events of our daily lives can be true scrapbooking treasures too.

Here’s just a few of the everyday moments that scrapbooking could turn into a wonderful memory in the years to come:
- Walking to the park
- Playing with your pet
- Reading bedtime stories
- Attending kid’s sporting events
- Doing homework
- Baking cookies
- Eating dinner
- Sleeping in
So, here’s to keeping that camera close by and capturing those ‘ordinary’ moments.
