We don’t scrapbook, but we do keep all kinds of “flat” things (ticket stubs, meus, coasters, maps, time guides, boarding passes, etc) anytime we fly, travel or go somewhere.
We go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and buy a boat load of those black 8X10 picture frames (about $4.00 each - and this way all of the items look the same), mount all of those things in the frames, and hang them in the stairwell going from our main floor to the second floor. It is a neat little conversation piece.
Growing up, my dad ALWAYS ate popcorn from the parks. While walking around, my sister and I would hear, “hey boys and girls, guess what time it is? It’s pop corn time.” Well, when we took my father and sister and brother in law with us in September 2006, we took dad’s pop corn box, folded it flat, and that too is on our wall.
All we have are memories, but this lets those memories be more tangible.
Just a thought.
