The history of scrapbooking

Have you ever wondered about the history of scrapbooking? I've certainly thought about the recent history of scrapbooks as I've watched the trends change over my own lifetime, but I have to admit that I haven't researched how scrapbooking has evolved over time, as in all of time. I was quite happy when my mom sent me a link to this article on the fascinating history of scrapbooking. It's worth reading!

This got me thinking about my own history of scrapbooking and I thought it would be a good time to link up to some of the information I have already posted here about my own journey.

Are you a scrapbooker? Or a memory keeper of any kind? When did you start? How has this evolved for you over the years? I'm going to think on these topics a little more. I love to ponder the many reasons for documenting my life. It gives me inspiration for what I want to do in the future and also makes me appreciate the projects I have already completed.

I sure love scrapbooking!
