Ok, well this particular idea came to me after reading this post on Soulemama and then browsing through my own photos of things I've made this year. I'd bet that you'd be surprised by how many wonderful things you've made if you counted. I was.
|Lots of felt barrettes|
|A bunch of sweaters - some with flowers even!|
|Several hats (of varying degrees of popularity)|
|Many, many reversible pinafores (my new favorite thing)|
But here's the thing. I've made all of these lovely things to be worn, loved and used by children (and, on occasion, adults). Children who love dirt and paint and animals. Children who grow really, really fast (much too fast if you ask me). In other words, even we're all really careful, not many of these lovelies will be around to admire once they've been used to their fullest potential. A few maybe, but certainly not the lot.
But what if I had a project photo album? Once a year, using some nifty photo program like Kodak Gallery, Lulu, or Picaboo, I could collect photos of all my crafty projects into a book. Something tells me that if I did, whenever I felt like I had gotten absolutely nothing accomplished that day, or that I never had time for crafts, I could pull out the previous year's book and feel a whole lot better.
Isn't that a good idea?
