I've been working through a book lately, titled "Making Memory Books and Journals by Hand."
Today I came across an interesting little sidebar that I thought I would share.
"Stronger than a string of diary entries, more powerful than your average photo album, able to recall long-ago experience with a single page, memory books just might be the finest way to celebrate all you hold dear. It's no wonder they have become so popular.
And one of the best things about memory books is that anyone can make one. We've all got our memories, our snapshots, our mementos.
How far you choose to go with your memory book is entirely up to you. Be sure to enjoy this artisitc freedom.
This is a very personal craft. that means whatever direction you go in with your book is the right one. You have only yourself and your memory to satisfy."
