Stacy Julian - Importance of Scrapbooking

Please take a few minutes to sit back and watch this video of Stacy Julian's family.   It makes me want to scrapbook those everyday moments right now!

Stacy Julian, an inspirational leader in scrapbooking, spoke at the Close To My Heart Convention in Dallas last week.   I hope some day I can go to convention.   She showed this video and I guess there was not a dry eye in the house.   She spoke about how scrapbooking is about the people and not just the events.   "My message is that time moves so very fast and most of the time we do too. But, we can choose (with practice) to slow down and to savor simple everyday moments. We can pull out our cameras and take pictures and we can live with these pictures and let them work magical things inside of us. Doing so will make us more grateful, more content, more aware and more happy. There is so much that is overwhelming and challenging in life. Efforts to capture and share your memories should be neither."   I couldn't agree with her more.   I enjoy scrapbooking those moments all the time because it brings my memories alive once again.   I also followe her blog in case you are interested:
