“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” ~ Eudora Welty
Years ago I purchased a photo storage system from Creative Memories. It hung around empty. One day last week Jen needed a photo of Maddie…well I made a complete mess out of the old photo storage box that you couldn’t squeeze one more photo into.
I had photos all over my desk…it was a mess.
It started raining here Thursday night and rained all day Friday. You guessed it.
It was a lovely trip down memory lane. I gave up on photo albums back in 1995 when everything went into storage and I was lucky to have a box to stick photos into. Just you try moving three times in four years…four times if you count the 15 months we lived in the camper. Let me tell you sizing down to a camper will make you think twice about what you really need.
Now the photos are sorted by person.
The old photo box that used to be stuffed to the gills has room for more photos.
The Christmas Photos/Greetings that I like to keep have their own box. I am thinking about putting these into page protectors and into a three ring binder.
I am not certain what my next step will be with the loose photos. Photo Albums…some of the old ones we have are a mess…some photos are stuck to pages forever…and some are falling out of their albums. That is a project for another day or three.
For now I am glad all the loose photos are together in one place. Next winter I think I will download some of the photos of the grandchildren and have them printed out at Wally World. I print out very few photos…perhaps it is time.
