I tie ribbons to the ring binder in the same color as the layout, to mark the pages so that I can find them easier.

My Craft-room
I use glass sheets to flatten and protect my work.

I try to always tidy up my workspace before I start a new scrapbook layout.
This is what it looked like before.
I use an empty tissue-box for the little scraps that I throw away.
I use a lot of mounting squares.

Another before shot.
Jay! I just got a Hypotrochoid art set.
I have started on some more collage backgrounds,
which are being flattened under glass sheets.

 “Memory is a child walking along a seashore.

You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up
and store away among its treasured things.”
~ Pierce Harris, Atlanta Journal

My Memory Box
I got the idea to make a Memory Box from Kingfisher2


I used this beautiful box that I received as a gift from a friend.


Some of the things I have put inside,
that are too big to go into my scrapbooks.
My daughter in law, who scrap-books, suggested that I make notes of the contents and their meaning.
I am a retired Ballet and modern dancing teacher, the one pair is my first satin ballet shoes and the other is the last pair I bought.
We visited South-Africa in 2007 and had a meal at the “Spur” Restaurant, my father wrote a message, dated and signed on the back of the Stella Artois coaster.
Sand from beaches,white gloves from when I taught mime, special cards, my parents gave me a set of castanets when I was very young.

Do you have a memory box?
