I’ve pulled the drop leaf table in the sun room out into the middle of the room and it is now Album Restoration Central. This was taken on about the first day and doesn’t look nearly as messy as it is now.
For this group I wanted to tell who they were, but they were sooo close together! So I made a copy of the picture at 150 percent to blow them up a little (and I mean that in the kindest way), then cut apart the copy into three smaller groups that were easier to label.
Each page presents its own unique challenges.
I’m about two-thirds of the way through this first album.
Yikes! What have I gotten myself into?
Seriously, it really is fun to look at all the old pictures. It’s funny that I feel like I “see” them so much more clearly when I take them off the page and handle them each personally. That reminds me that I heard one time that if you really want to remember something, use as many of your senses to “experience” it as possible — like touching it.
I keep reminding myself that every journey starts with the first step, which I’ve already taken. And, after that, you (I) just have to keep taking one step after another — and definitely avoid looking up too often to see how high the mountain is!
