An Easy Gift

I love to scrapbook, but with three little ones, I've not kept up with it like I want to. I have a book for each of the kids that I try to keep keep them updated until they turn 3. Sort of like a delux baby book. I have Gavin's all done-- birth through age 3. Well, Maddie will be 4 in a few months and hers is only updated through age 2! And Owen...I'll get to his someday!

I can get out my scrapbooking urges by making bookmarks. I make them for fun and for quick token gifts to include in a card or give as a little thank-you. It is so easy and relatively fast. I use whatever is on hand-- fancy paper, ribbons, stickers, glitter glue, markers, etc. The kids often want to make their own marker, too, especially if I use the glitter glue!

  1. I would probably scrap book if I didn't have kiddos...but just never started it and it takes too long. I don't have that kind of free time!!! I think that is why I do cards.... simple, quick and still gets my creative juices flowing! Love the bookmark!
