My Weekend Project– Scrapbooking My “Refrigerator” Pictures

August 26, 2008 at 10:36 am 2 comments

Not really just “refrigerator”, but the ones on my ribbon boards and in drawers and creeping and crawling and falling off my desks and in my planners and stuck EVERYWHERE.  It’s time for some reorganizing.  And no, I don’t “just have a drawer” to stick them in…so here they are.

Misty asked a few months ago if there was an easier way to scrapbook if you don’t have a lot of time, and I began thinking of some projects I have put off for lack of time “me pictures” and others like these.

I ran across this post by Ali Edwards on Divided Page Protectors and decided to shop around for options just to mix in with my other albums when I wanted.  I ordered these from after Froogling for good prices on such items.

I thought I’d use them as gifts, but ended up using all but one pack on this project.  I really liked them.  My only complaint is that I like blank spaces, and you need some cardstock or something as spacers to keep the pages from feeling “floppy” if they are not full yet.  For these pages, I’d recommend 3 ring or jump ring (as I used) binders instead of “post-bound” if you need to move photos around, or want to add to it over time…you have to take these out to add to them very easily.

I had ONE, make that THREE qualifications for this project, that it be EASY and done in like 2 hours, that it be EXPANDABLE, and that is not require a lot of TAPE of my precious “MOMMY FAV” photos I love most.  Here with the fam here Saturday, I worked on it off and on all day and part of Sunday…probably 2-3 hours altogether, and it’s SO NICE to have all those photos organized now!

I may or may not make up a journaling page here or there to insert in a 4X6 slot on my computer.  That would be cool for when guests come see it, but time is limited.   Simple options are good…if you do, fine; if you don’t, fine!

    Interesting project. I haven’t taken any photos in years, but the ones I do have are in one cardboard box in the closet. Maybe I should drag out those photos and put some on the fridge. 🙂

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
